4x5 test



I cannot believe that it has taken me like two years to find time to experiment with my large format 4x5 camera. Sigh...

Anyway, this got my blood pumping. Type 55 polaroid film. A b/w polaroid that not only has a polaroid positive image, but also gives a negative that can be printed regularly!! I tested a few frames on some hanging clothes and got hot and bothered. I had to call Eadwine down to be my model.

The specs of the shoot are,
Sinar 4x5 rail mounted camera
210mm Schneider lens
Exposure was 1/4s at f4.0
Lighting was Cosmopro flourescent lighting

Anyone intereseted in being shot on large format?

Welcome to the wonderful world of Type 55 Polaroid. Well, in the olden days it was called "Type" 55. Now it's just 55. That was way back when it was under $50 for a box. :-)

Oh, you can see a bunch more 55 pics in the people section of my Flickr account.
