Cornwall (England) B&W Joy

Ofer Halevi , Sep 08, 2004; 07:05 a.m.

Just got back from a weekend away in Cornwall, SW England. It was the perfect opportunity to use my Linhof 5x4 camera. I had it for a few months now, but took my time coming to grips with how the whole thing works... I recently started developing my own b&w (Inford HP5+) sheet film at home, and I'm very very pleased with the results. I am constantly amazed at the amount of valuable information on this forum, so thank you all. I'm also interested in getting in touch with other LF photographers in the London area, so please give me a shout.

Looks as if you learned something somewhere. You should be proud of these.

Very nice. Excellent compositions. Any chance of a bigger version?

Thanks for all your comments. I am very proud of these, and can't wait to get out and shoot some more. One bigger version:

Ofer - nice work

It sometimes takes me many months from the point I develop the film until I actually see a print, so congratulations on your speedy results. You actually took the shots this weekend, developed, printed, mounted, AND framed them?

Hardly the case. I took the pictures, developed them, scanned then, and added mounts in Photoshop. I think it helps in visualizing the end result. I'm sure to print (Epson 2100) and mount them very soon. I find that this "traditional" and digital combo works very well for me.
I get to use my favourite camera, touch some smelly chemicals, and then sit for hours in a dark room in front of my monitor :) sad, really...

You got me there! When I submitted my post my last line was "or is this a photoshop effect?" but i backspaced and deleted it. What threw me was the signatures... You are right, it does help to visualize the final "real" product... Tom

Photoshopped mat prints?

Cornwall?

Inkjets?
