Shot with a speed graphic, magnifying lens, and 580EX flash. Scan of the negative.
I really like it. :thumbup:
Classic ... would you mind sharing the secret of the photo a bit (like how you took it)
i just really like it
Sure, this was a very quick setup. I was really just testing a lens, but I liked the result.
I used a flash with a home-made diffuser, white background, and a salvaged lens of about ~120mm focal length, f/3, lots of aberrations... in fact many shots are totally unusable with this lens, like this one of some burnt driftwood on a beach (yuck):
I shot a few digital images to preview the flash lighting, then fired off the speed graphic with a sheet of APX-100 film loaded and popped the flash.
Lovely in its simplicity.
Beautiful. This really challenges the traiditional definition of bokeh - love the whispy branches coming off. Is it that shallow due to it being only f/3 on large format, or because of the aberrations?
