John LF - 003a lo res
Calumet 4x5 monorail
Schnieder 150mm convertible lens
Rear element only (telephoto single element)
100s F12 (wide open)
single studio strobe
Acros 100, shot and developed at 100 ISO
Scanned with Epson V700 @ 2400 dpi
original file after editing (dust removal, vignette mask, eye color) was 25 MB. This JPEG is lower resolution ~6.7MB.
I had to remove a lot of dust. Need to clean the camera, lens, and scanner better I guess.
Also, both images that I took using the single element had a white spot in nearly the middle of the negative. This doesn't show when using both elements. Not sure if it is a glare or imperfection on the rear element.--
UPDATE --- I've found the "white spot" in several other photos. I've concluded that it is a light leak through the shutter. I've noticed that the shutter doesn't always close completely after I'm through focusing....
