while we’re still out of focus, we solved a bunch of other problems…build a f:4.5 cardboard stop that we inserted into the lens…fixed the broken cable release with some rubber bands a whole lot of silicon spray, to minimise camera shake…now the only thing left to do, is raise the film plane by 5 to 8mm, tomorrow and we should be there…hopefully!

I had a hard time focusing the 18x24 yesterday…I believe it’s a problem with the old timey filmholders as they are designed to work with glass plates…hopefully I resolved the issue…we’ll see later on…I also got a “new” 200mm barrel lens…it’s probably not going to cover the whole format but I wanna give it a shot anyways

this was shot on rollei ortho…and tray developed in microphen for 1 minute!…had to do a lot of retouching…fingerprints and scratches galore…have to be extra carefull next time…totally different rendition of color as compared to paper negatives and also better tonality…I still have a couple of sheets left…next week I’ll try developing in caffenol…and of course do some portraits…

She didn’t want to have her portrait taken, she came in and asked if I was hiring…well…I can barely keep myself afloat…so we just talked and then I had her take my portrait and then I shot hers…
This camera is pretty hard to handle…everything seems to be in the wrong place…tomorrow we’ll try to get the shutter going again…already build a lensboard…I love this lens…it covers the whole format easily…too bad you can’t stop it down…yet…guess I’ll have to build some waterhouse stops soon…

Untitled Test Shot
Since I don’t have a lensboard yet we just strapped the lens to the front standard and taped it light tight…now I just have to find someone who can hold still for a good long while…’cause the plane of focus is only marginal as you can see!

I’ve spent most of the afternoon in the dark…fiddeling around with digital negatives, fibre paper and caffenol…after my initial failures…I think my printer is not good enough to print correctly on OHP sheets…I used plain white glossy paper…et voila…a fibre print of a digital image I made!
