My second large format shot.
Front fall and back tilt applied. This time around I used a makeshift loupe to ensure critical focusing...a Meyer Optik Domiplan lens that I had laying around. Works well.
Splotches and smears are probably due to the film losing it's anti-halation layer off it's base. I was fumbling around with it in the dark trying to get it to 'taco' properly, my tank wouldn't drain, my hands got sweaty and it rubbed off the anti-halation layer.
One of the beauty of shooting sheet film is that it allows you to correct your mistakes. For example, when I developed my 1st shot of Snow (previous post), I could see that the negative was a bit too dense for my liking. So I reduced my development time for this shot accordingly, resulting in a thinner negative. Just the way I like it.
It's been a lousy few days. My uncle died earlier today and my father-in-law is in hospital due to a cardiac problem. Tired, exhausted and sad. Won't be that active on Flickr for awhile maybe.
