A few friends popped out of the attic to visit Wednesday. I mentioned it was a bit early, but they insisted.
After a few old drinks of potion and the like, they warmed up to the idea of posing for the camera.
I took this opportunity to try out a few new pieces of glass. First up was a no name Petzval lens which I'm guessing is around f4.
This 5x7 plate is a 12 second exposure. PLease use the links to view the full size gallery image and tech info. Enjoy.
The next four plates were taken with a Buhl 9" f2.5 projector lens. All wide open at f2.5
This last image was taken (092613) with a Schneider 12" G Claron
