I took these in early July this year, during a 10-day Living History event in Normandy.
200 re-enactors with 40 vehicles following the route of the 2nd US Armored Division during the Normandy Breakout (Operation Cobra) in July 1944.

I think I need to reduce the developing time a bit more as I'm using continuous agitation.

I WAS SO HAPPY WITH MY 6X6 AND 6X7, AND NOW I SEE THIS! I cannot take it anymore, I have to buy a 4x5 camera. Which one do you recommend, not too expensive?

Crown/Speed Graphics with lens are available all day long for $250-$300, even less in bargain condition. I sold a Speed in rough shape with a crack in the ground glass for $125 a few months ago.

4x5 is really cheap to get into.

SAA DC-3 "Klapperkop"

I recently photographed one of the final flights of Ex-South African Airways DC-3 "Klapperkop" before it will lose its original livery (a separate and sad story..).

All were photographed on Ilford FP4+ 4x5in using a Linhof Technika V. They have been printed on Ilford MG Art 300 paper. The effect of the ultra-fine rivets and detail on this textured, slighly shimmery paper is wholly remarkable - it looks like they have been embossed, and I cannot capture the effect digitally.










This series will be going on sale soon (edition of 20 prints of each in 20x24in on MG Art 300 paper, clad in the most beautiful hand-made frames).

Lenses used were:
  1. Zeiss-for-Linhof Sonnar 250mm f/5.6 (first and third, both wide open, a magical lens)
  2. First-gen Schneider chrome 75mm f/8 (second)
  3. Schneider APO-Symmar 150mm f/5.6
This series has thus far been an epitome for me in terms of on-paper print quality in the darkroom, and I look forward to applying what I've learnt on my next series.

Just also wanted to thank all the posters in this thread for the many beautiful and/or interesting images shared here.

May this thread be an inspiration and a call to action to those who do yet experience the unparalelled satisfaction that the large-format camera and negative can provide.

(Once you get past the first X years of frustration and will to give up... it does take time to become adept)

Oh well, I just got started in 4x5 with a Wista. Not a RF but I really like it. That said I'm now certain I need a darkroom as my changing bag has a serious problem. Can you guess what?

That sucks. Good photo otherwise. I like the foreground interest on the left.

I usually don't post images here, just on the LF forum, but here's two I shot yesterday:

I've started working on a new project this month. Inspired by classic still-life images and the fading knowledge and/or experience with early computer technology, I am photographing some of the digital detritus I have collected over the years. Much of it came from my grandfather after he died or was part of my early childhood and teen years learning MS-DOS, BASIC programming, and tinkering with building my own computers and playing with audio gear.

All of these images were shot in my basement studio space with a Linhof Master Technika 4x5 camera and Schneider 150mm f/9 G-Claron, on Efke 100 film developed in Pyrocat 1:1:100. Lighting is a single Speedotron head with or without umbrella.

1975 Midway Arcade "Wheels" Logic Board:


Underside of "Wheels" Logic Board:


ISA Slots on the motherboard of my first computer:


Commodore 64 and 5.25" floppy disks:


Over the holidays I brought home a several boxes of computer parts from storage, so I am envisioning this being a long-term project, which perhaps I will pitch to a gallery. I am imagining these printed in my darkroom at 20x24. I have tons of old accessory cards, motherboards, a cornucopia of RAM, etc. Should be a fun time.

Years back, we found a box of 4x5 glass plate negatives in the basement of my parent's condo. We're pretty sure they were taken by my dad's great uncle. This is from around 1915 and shows a Ford Motel T someplace in Detroit.

Maybe it’s just my personal quirkiness, but the hands in that photo elevate it to another level, taking it from a photo I’d look at to one I’d look at repeatedly. Thanks for posting.

Mackinaw, that photo made me say for myself that it's the first "reenactment" photo in the thread that looks believable. Then I read the date 1915.

Hard to believe these glass plate negatives are more than a 100 years old. They’re in remarkably good shape for their age, considering that they were stored in less than ideal conditions (damp basement and hot attic). There are more, which I’ll post from time to time.

From a collection of 4X5 glass plate negatives we found in the basement of my parent's condo years back. A 1915(?) Studebaker someplace in Detroit. The dark area to the lower left is a piece of the glass plate that broke off sometime in the past.
