Cross fountain pen

Post by Duck » Wed Aug 16, 2017 2:14 am

A simple composition I came up with for my pen. I was looking to show the difference a lens swing makes on focal plane. I'll post a tutorial later. In the meantime, enjoy my pen. :D

P.S. There is a subliminal message hidden in the image for you. Can you spot it?

Very nicely done. I can definitely see the advantage of the swing.

My guess on the image is the pen pointing to good.

That is a wonderful picture! One of the things that has amazed me about digital from my first experiences with it 10 years ago is that you can now produce work that rivals or even exceeds what we used to have to do with 4x5 Ektachromes. Generally, we would never have been able to get away with even a full-frame Kodachrome 25 for commercial use. Not that it wouldn't have done the job; it simply wasn't done.

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Very nice image. Wonderfully executed. I'll be interested in the tutorial though I'm figuring such will still be beyond me.

"Good" for Bob for solving the subliminal puzzle!

With large format cameras that have bellows the front standard (lens) and rear standard (film plane) have a variety of movements they can do independently of each other. They are;

Tilt is the angling, on a horizontal axis, up or down
Swing is the angling, on a vertical axis, left and right
Shift is a lateral motion, left or right, on the standards
Rise and Fall are the up and down shifting on the standards

With a modern T/S lens you are only limited to tilt or swing and either shift or rise/fall of the lens. For the most part, a good T/S lens can accomplish a good 80-90% of what a traditional LF camera can handle.
