    11X14 Portrait with 22" Voigtlander petzval #2

    ULF portrait. My apologies for not simply posting at the gallery. I tried my best but by the time I whittled it down to 650 bytes, it for all practical purposes was gone. This 101 kb is large enough to get the sense of what is there perhaps.

    This is my brother in law, John Cole. John and I have a long history. Long enough that he was best man at my wedding, and met his future bride, my wife's sister at the occasion. We've enjoyed many years of good and bad times with 5 female cousins all raised pretty much together.

    This is how I see John 98% of the time. Looking over his glasses at me to tell me something. So when I set him up for a portrait with the 11X14 Century and the 22" Voigtlander Petzval, I told him to drop his chin and look over those glasses. The 11X14 print is perhaps a personal best in an area I'm just treading water in.

    Jim, nice shot. I would prefer to see a bit more chin, but with the dof as it is, that may be difficult. Which film / developer combo was it? Best, tim

    That's got to be one hefty lens! Great shot, Jim. I can't imagine the difficulties in doing head-and-shoulders portraits on 11x14! You've got me itching to get home and develop the 2 portraits I shot with my 16" petzi on 8x10.

    just a note: the size limit on images isn't 650 bytes, the max length is 650 pixels.
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!

    Whew, you really woke me up with this one! It is a dandy! You played the Depth of field like a Stradivarius!!! Very well done and my highest compliments on reaching another plateau!

    Now for the problem. The image is too damn big to view on my monitor! I can't get back far enough to find a normal viewing distance. Have you ever given any thought to Minox or split frame 35 mm ?

    Yes, the lens is a brute, however I thought it was the same as the one that finished on Ebay last evening, but mine is a diminutive 11 1/2" long to the 14" long ebay one. It sold for $900. The bellows was right at about 44+ inches to fill the frame with a head. PhotoWareHouse 125 (FP4+) and PyroChatecol. People look at that cannon and probably think, you know if this thing falls over it will kill me.

    Charlie, I've got a split frame 35mm here at work that will make 360 pictures a second. Would that work OK? I'd have to turn it on it's side for portrait mode
