Portraits of Marines in Afghanistan
I shot a bunch of portraits of the Marines in Afghanistan today with my large format camera. I don't have a scanner here so I put the photo back into the film holder to keep it flat'ish, and photographed it with my digital camera. Pretty much the only want I can share them for now. They LOVED them too.

They have a gold metallic look to them. I've never had Ilford's direct positive paper do this, but they look wonderful. Feel free to CC. These photos were shot in broad daylight, and unfiltered. So they tend to be kind of harsh. But for being in the middle of nowhere, I think they turned out pretty ok.
