Wow! What a camera.

Beautiful bit of workmanship there.

Still experimenting. Current batch of paper is ISO 6, so I need more lights! Back to HP5+ which I can rate at 640 if developed in Diafine.

The ice has finally gone, but there was a stormy sky coming across the bay today.

Too much snow for going out with a camera, so I took out the 10x8 and posed my son:

I'm not up to stomping around outside today, so I pestered Isabelle Adjani until she let me take her photo.

My first try with Galaxy paper—I contributed to their Kickstarter about six months ago, and they went to Russia to get some paper coated with a fast emulsion, and it arrived this week. Many people were annoyed when the purported reversal paper turned out to be ordinary (but fast) paper, with reversal processing required. Harman make a direct reversal paper and it was hoped this would be the same. For myself, I am happy with the product save for one annoyance. Most photographic printing paper has an ISO of 3. This is said to be 125, and I metered it that way, allowed for a third of a stop of bellows compensation—my 450mm lens was extended to 600mm to focus this close—and it came out just right. My only problem is that when looked at 100% magnification there are all sorts of black speckles on the film. I don't think these are from my water supply.
