An Evening by the Lake
Lens: Nikkor 180mm F5.6 Camera: Zone VI 4x5 Photo Location: Northern Colorado ISO: 200 Aperture: F22 
Posted By: Colorado CJ, 08-09-2014, 07:40 PM

This was the first photo taken with my new (to me) Zone VI 4x5 camera. I rushed out to a local lake after unpacking it, anxious to try it out "in the field".

This is somewhat of a hybrid photo as it was scanned into the computer and worked on in photoshop a little. I think, with some practice, and a little luck I could achieve something similar in the darkroom, using toners and some burning/dodging and contrast papers.

Shot using a Nikkor SW 180mm F5.6 lens on Fomapan 200 at ISO 160 through a red filter. Processed in Rodinal at 50:1 for 8 minutes.

Thanks! I have a lot to learn about large format photography. What I do know is the scans are HUGE. A 3200 pixel per inch scan is roughly 45" x 38". Lots of information in that large of a negative. These small web sizes don't really do them justice, it robs the image of a lot of depth and detail.

Thanks daacon, I was excited to see how it turned out after pulling it out of the developing tank. I was shooting directly into the sun and don't have a huge amount of experience with the zone system yet. I'm very happy I calculated the exposure right.
