8×10 300mm at f/5.6

November 7, 2012

October portrait with 8×10 Deardorff camera and Rodenstock Siranon N 300mm lens

Ilford HP5 rated at 200 as it was to be processed in Rodinal. Opened up another stop for bellows extension. Exposure was f/5.6 at 1/30 which is wide open on this lens and gives almost no depth of field. I would have stopped down a bit but didn’t want to risk a slower shutter speed. The film was processed by rolling in a Jobo 2830 paper drum in a sink. Dev was Rodinal 1+25, 8 minutes constant rolling at 20 degrees. Film was scanned on an Epson V700, emulsion side down on the glass.
