4x5 Large Format · Film photography · Photography

A house by a railway

Another large format attempt. This one is possibly my favourite so far that I’ve shot with my Chroma. But it’s still not as good as I want it to be.

There are two main issues with this picture. One, not visible in the image you see, is that I think I put too little developer in the tank as this picture and another developed at the same time both had a thin strip of underdeveloped negative along one of the short edges. I was sure that I’d used 475mm of solution are required by the tank I was using, but clearly not. This resulted in my having to crop the image. The second issue is the focus at the left side of the frame, which is soft. I think I must have had a little bit of swing taking place and it only seems to take an imperceptable amount to knock the focus out. I am going to have to take much better care over this in future.

Apart from the above-mentioned issues though, the image is very sharp and I’m quite happy with it.
