Yes, I use a camera that uses sheet film in holders, instead of on rolls.
Then, instead of using film in the holder, I load b/w enlarging paper cut to fit the holder.

Then I expose that paper @ about ISO 6, then I develop it in standard print developer.
At that point I have a negative on photo paper.
I scan that paper, then invert the colors, which makes a positive image.

This works especially well for me in 4x5 as my scanner will not scan a 4x5 negative, but it will scan a 4x5 sheet of paper.

This was actually shot on film, not paper. But these are the two cameras that I can use to shoot paper negatives.
That is a fascinating method that I did not know about, thanks.

Meet Paul, one of the protesters standing outside of the Marie Stopes International clinic in Buckhurst Hill, England. They were praying and demonstrating against the abortions that are performed there every day. A very kind man, genuinely concerned with the deaths of thousands of unborn babies being killed every year in the UK. Later the same day they took part in an anti-abortion '500 crosses for Life' prayer procession which started at Westminster Cathedral and ended outside Westminster Abbey, London

Thanks guys. I think that lens is sharp. I just have to figure out the rangfinder a little better, i wanted that tire all the way in the frame.

Usually on the RF shots it is the top of the subject that gets chopped off. I tend to be generous in the framing and assume that I will crop to get the framing I really wanted. Something that using a ground glass and the SLR generally does not have a problem with. The RF and TLR are famous for framing issues.

It would make since if it was slightly different at different distances as well. Thanks for the advice I will certainly give a little more space and crop.

The best way to insure precise framing with the Kiev is to not shoot with a Kiev.

That was a joke. Composition with even the best non-reflex cameras is a bit of a guessing game. The finder on the Kiev may be pretty accurate at infinity, but at moderate to close distance parallax plays havoc with attempts at tight composition. The remedy is to frame loose and crop later.

My daily contribution to this thread:



Shot with my K1000, K55 mm f2.0 (that unfortunately got damaged...I need to figure out if I can fix it), and Portra160. Wide at f2.8 and 1/30, shot pratically without metering (the needle gave dramatic underexposure, I doubt something would have come out)....still I kind of like this pic for some weird reasons.

A good Kiev 4 can perform excellently even after 50 years.

Thank you!

Unfortunately it's a little soft because shot at f2.8 in low light and you can't read the signals, but still undergrounds are always a challenge, especially if you use Portra 160 instead of 400.

Here are a few Madrid autumnal shots from the test roll through my SP500, all taken with the SMC Tak 55/2 on expired Fujicolor 100 film.
