    Something a little different... ULF still life

    Well, its at least a little different for me. Actually, VERY different for me. Not something I thought I would ever really be interested in, but surprisingly I've really been enjoying it.

    I posted one of these a few weeks back and received some nice comments.
    So thought I would share the first 10 or so that I've done.

    Would love to hear peoples thoughts and comments.

    I think it is fantastic. This has given me some new ideas for both the 11x14 and the 8x20. Thanks for posting this.

    it looks fantastic.

    what lens are you using - love the softness!

    just got my 12x16 camera ready to use - gonna try homemade glass negatives, as real negatives are out of my reach.................................

    I love stills, so this is a great inspiration.

    Gandolfi, Jim, Thank you for the kind words.

    The lens is a 16inch Kodak Soft Focus Portrait "Dinner Plate" (er... I mean "lens") F4.5. Its beastly large and require a tripod to support the front standard when mounted. Takes up almost the entirety of the 6" x 6" F&S 12x20 lensboard.

    All the images were shot in the F6.3 - F8 range, using a lenscap and my internally calibrated chronometer - 1 one thousand, 2 one thousand

    Aha, I see you like skulls too. I only have a deer skull that gets used rather often.

    Some images look a bit too crowded for me but I bet others will just like those. As long as you're happy with your creations, I am too.

    Tri, Chris, G.
    Thank you for the comments. This is something quite different for me to even be trying, but I'm enjoying the challenge and how "different" it feels to see on a smaller scale, etc.

    thanks again.

    Thanks for sharing this very nice series. I especially like the last one.
    Gives me a lot of ideas as it is certainly less physically challenging to do still lifes than working in the field with these wonderful beasts. At 79 even my somewhat lightweight 717 gets pretty heavy after a short while.
    Think I will load up some film and see what I can do.
