    600 Sq. In. neg I made on Saturday

    He. He. Couldn't resist the title. I made my first ever neg with a #8 Cirkut camera on Saturday. Thought I would share. Warts and all of course. Nobody expect the first try to be perfect. But I'm greatly encouraged. The portions that are good, are really good.



    Click on the thumbnail to go have a look at full size. Yes Virginia, that's a thumbnail. The neg is 8" X 74"! Yep, there's banding and smeared areas. Work to do, but this was good enough to get me pretty pumped up!

    The view is of Tonopah Nevada. 270 degree rotation. In the print, the areas where the camera ran perfectly are beautifully sharp. I used a 450mm Red Dot Artar at f90. 1/2 sec. exposure. No meter used, sunny 16.

    Looks pretty darn good to me, but what is all the white stuff on the ground and roofs? We don't have any thing like that right now. Truly haven't had a penny's worth all winter. Watched a Jackrabbit hopping across the prairie this morning carrying a canteen! Gonna be a dry summer I expect.

    Jim,

    Unbelievable, great shot. when I clicked on the "thumbnail" I got the "original" for a split-second and then back to "thumbnail". I have a lot of difficulty typing the word "thumbnail" for this image though.

    sunny 16... you're taking a laugh at us :-)

    What's the technical reason behind the banding?
