Te Whenua/The Land

Posted by BlindPoet (Whangarei, New Zealand) on 19 January 2018 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Silver gelatin paper negative process. Sinar P 8 x 10 Cam.
Tetenal vario 5 matt paper.
Vintage 1898 Ross CZ Convertible Anastigmat lens. Shot at f8.
Developed in over diluted Ilford Multigrade.
Straight scan and inverted only.
I love how straight inverts have this bluish hue. Being an uncoated lens the contrast is less to.
Scanned at 1200 dpi, colour and Epson V800

This is one of the same lenses used by Henry Winkelman an early NZ photographer. I love it and wish I was brave enough to just have one lense. I haven't shot mush with it stopped down even more....its very sharp....

this will give a wider perspective on my mainly analogue and sometimes digital love affair with all things photography. I am often months behind what I am really doing on Aminus3 and I must confess to falling off the daily wagon for some time in 2017. You may find some articles I have written on Ipernity (and they are old too)but you may find interesting. I am enjoying trying to get back into Animus3 this year after that getting off the daily image treadmill time, which one can end up with one posting meaningless images just because you are addicted and want to be in that image number bracket.
