I went for a still life for today's entry to the project. Basket full of vitamin rich fruit and other assorted goodness.
Camera: Calumet 45NX 4x5 large format monorail view camera.
Lens: Rodenstock Geronar 150mm F6.3 lens in a Copal 0 shutter. Yellow filter on the lens to improve contrast.
Film: Fuji Super HR-T 30 medium speed green sensitive X-Ray film. Purchased as 8x10" sheets and cut down to 4x5".
Exposure: 1/60th second @ F32.
Lighting: Alien Bees B800 studio strobe @ 3/4 power in 22" soft white beauty dish with diffusion sock, positioned above and slightly in front of camera position. A 45" white reflector on reflector stand positioned to camera left to bounce some light back onto the subject. Strobes triggered with PocketWizard Plus II radio triggers.

Scanning: Negative scanned with Epson V600 in two scans and merged back together in PhotoShop since the V600 doesn't natively support 4x5 scans in one pass.
