May 6th, 2011..Long Grove
Recently, I talked about trying to find negatives from back in the days of Tomba's 4" x 5" negatives and Medium format film shooting. Today while cleaning up the basement work area / used to be print area and I did come across a binder of 4" x 5" and Mamiya neg's. Of course, I could have scanned some of those (probabely my better work) I also came across a CD with these files.
Taken in 2006 with probably my Mamiya RB( 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" Neg). I have no idea of who he is. The important thing to notice here is this is nothing special, I didn't enhance with CS5 or Nik Silver Efex or spend a hour fixing. OK, I did the edge but this as far as I remember this is camera neg scanned to CD ...Check out the contrast without me sitting in front of a computer for a hour.
All the photographer's that are in the "pipeline" looking for work/clients and have brought a decent digitial camera, are creative but have never used film ....OK, I am not sure how to finish that sentence that will come back and bite me, so you finish it with what works for you. Me, I am dusting off my Mamiya's..Do you know anyone who is selling a Deardorf 4" x 5" or 8 x 10" ?
