Last night I made the tough realization that I need to sell off ALL of my 4×5 stuff 🙁 I just haven’t been doing any large format stuff lately and being a starving 24 year old that basically eats crap for camera equipment, I’ve decided to cut down my kit. Plus the cost for 4×5 e6 development is like $2-$3 a shot!
And since I converted my darkroom into a digital printing/matting room/office, I figured I’d ditch film all together.
In preparation for the online auctions I’ll be putting together, I did some nice product shots of the equipment. Below is my 180mm APO Rodenstock lens.
Here is the setup:
Basically, I’ve got two strobes through softboxes on either side of the lens, which is sitting on a clear piece of glass I borrowed from a frame. The glass is on top of black velvet. To give a really nice clean specular, I placed some foamcore behind the lens and shot a speedlight into it.
