I like it a lot! It's developed with the C41 process, so as if it was colour negative film....

Hi- I came across these recently. They are from a project I did many years ago, documenting construction of a birch bark canoe. I was fortunate in doing a number of projects of this type during my career. The scans are old, dating from the mid-nineties. I don't have the original slides as they are in a museum. I did this project with a Nikon F801, 24-50 and 80-200/2.8 lenses. (I've always used Pentax gear for my personal work but my job came with Nikon gear.) Used very gentle fill flash for a lot of the shots.

John -

Great pix.

I'm sure you are familar with John McPhee's book The Survival of the Bark Canoe ; for those who aren't it is a fascinating, very readable survey of the history and continuing building and use of the birch bark canoe. McPhee is a wonderful writer, I think he could write on about any subject and make it accessible and interesting.

This is a final print of one of my 8X10 format images:

Ebony SV8X10E with Rodenstock 240mm f/5.6 APO-Sironar-S - Kodak Tech Pan Developed in PyrocatHD - pure platinum emulsion on 460GSM archival cotton paper, Image dimensions 16"X20"

Estimated price: circa $4800 (I admit I'm a bit conservative with my costing, gallery owners typically have a 30% commission mark-up which will add around $1,440 to the sale price)

My guess, Spain?

For the waist-level street shot without a WL finder, or other quick and innocuous methods, my favorite FL is around 35mm. The depth of field is excellent, and even guess-focus cameras like the little Olympus XA2 give great results. I've had four XAs, and for so many decades that I seem to see that FOV most easily without a finder. 40 works, too, but I find that at 50, focus starts to require a bit more of my attention.

I don't know who these folks are, but the symmetry of this waist-level XA2 shot worked for me.
That looks like Spain, isn't it?

Explosions tend to rip apart, scorch and otherwise mangle things. Of course it depends on the characteristics of explosive used* - but a camera like this being gracefully dismantled by exploding expired film? Sounds pretty far-fetched to my ears. The chances of this actually happening as described would be like getting hit by the "Oh my god particle" and reciting the national anthem whilst wearing only crocs.



* I have never heard of explosive film, Nitrocellulose is highly flammable but that hasn't been used in film products since the 1950's. If film was that dangerous then what are camera stores doing selling it to people?
