Max Jenkins 09/01/2009 at 8:05 amThis portrait works very well – the slightly upward angle of view suits Kate – the only problem with the shot is the shadow line across the lower neck. You might see what cropping that out does for the picture – with a 2 1/4 negative, it should not suffer from a tighter crop.Nice tonality, too. Hard to judge the grain from the screen – XTOL should be pretty smooth. I will be interested in how the Rodinal does with the larger format. matt 09/02/2009 at 6:10 amMax, yeah there’s plenty of room for cropping, but that shadow is me.Xtol is indeed smooth, but so was d76. I expect Rodinal to be smooth as well. That’s just a lot of negative to work with. max 09/02/2009 at 7:31 amAh, the shadow has significance beyond loss of a zone and a half of exposure!Huge negative – that’s why I never got rid of my 2 1/4 cameras. When my technique is up to it, beautiful B&W that could almost be mistaken for large format.Looking forward to more of your square shots.Comments are closed.
