Those fog pics are great, Brian.
thanks kevin and Pat,
I haven't tried Pryo, when my Dev supply is finished Im going to try ID11 with the ERA, see if I can improve on the results, (still not quite happy) hope to pick up plenty of usefull info at the workshop with Richard White at the end of the month, ( 2 1/2 days at Falls Creek ) have loaded some 4x5 Velvia 100 for the trip as well.
Yep, absolutely fantastic, and only 30' from your front door? Lucky bugger!

That sort of stuff happens when you choose to live at the foot of a mountain range.
Well captured, Brian.
Getting back to the subject of the thread. With LF, any images which can be displayed on this forum will miss the point of LF entirely - one might as well shoot with (shudder) d@#$%^l.
We should use this forum to arrange shoot days or meeting where we can show our prints to each other.
Or, do we have enough high quality work to set up an exhibition or attach to the coat-tails of an extant exhibition?
Some people here don't have access to a darkroom, some do. Images posted here gives a little feedback to all. Technique and method. It has already brought us all together, a point of contact in this vast land of ours. A couple of guys have already met up. I would like to see more usage of this site and more input from all the members.
I also notice Peter Marven has changed, very dignified.
Hey, Brian, Richard White is a great teacher, very passionate and inspirational. You will learn a lot, even if you already know a lot.

These are scanned and giclee (inkjet) printed because I find that process makes more sense for me.I have thought about sending some of my images away to be printed on crystal archive paper but never been sufficiently motivated.My point being that one doesn't need a darkroom to make prints.BTW 'Peter Marven'???? If you're referring to my avatar, that's a portrait of me by Mick Fagan done in 35mm.Peter.
You're old avatar was Marven wasn't it?.I left out a comma. I think the new one is very dignified. Also If you want to arrange something just do it. I set this up for all to use.
This is the only reasonable shot i got on the 4x5 over the weekend at Richards workshop,Busted ribs made it a diffcult job concentrating and carring gear around, otherwise it was a great experience.
Really nice, can I ask where you went. It looks like Mt Stirling. I would to get up there before winter sets in, and then explore the Howqua River during the following months.
the workshop was at falls Creek, thats where this image was taken, (not a real good one though)
Falls Creek? Bloody long way from Mansfield when there so much around there...
That's a real shame Brian, do you get a lot out of the weekend otherwise?
Mt Stirling. ERA 100iso rated at 80.Dev ID11 18deg 11 min @ 1+1.
took this about 8.30am today, decided to drive up to Mt. Stirling hoping there would be some mist around,alass no mist!!!! but still took a couple of expoeures anyway.
Like the low down angle, I thought there might be a little snow but perhaps I'm wrong.
Just a test shot from this morning, The light was a bit flat, waited for about 3/4 hr but didnt change so took the shot anyhow, It was quite foggy, shot was taken on the side of the road just out of Mansfield.
Brian nice shot, Shame about the wire fence.
Nice one Brian. Might be a candidate for a square crop?
The lovely soft foggy mornings are upon us (even up here in SEQ). Must get out of bed earlier and get some shots in myself.
Pat: "Brian nice shot, Shame about the wire fence."
I'll be honest, I thought the same thing at first, but then, I've come to think that a strand of rugged old barbed-wire makes an image truly Australian. So, maybe stomping the grass down to get bot more of the fence in could have been an idea :P But love the content and capture anyway, love that area.
Wire fence doesn't bother me, I like the mist. Was going to head up there this weekend, but though better of it a stayed home to complete an assignment.
