4x5 for 365 project (41/365)

Jacks was one of my Wife's favorite childhood games and still is to this day.  Not fun to step on in the middle of the night however and that's why they stay in their protective tin when not in use. 

Camera: Calumet 45NX 4x5 large format monorail view camera. 

Lens: Fujinon-W 210mm F5.6 lens in a Copal B shutter.  Yellow-Green filter on the lens to improve contrast.

Film: Ilford HP5+ 400 ISO Negative Film, shot at 200 ISO. 

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.  A second B800 strobe @ 1/32 power in a 12X48" gridded strip box positioned horizontal to the table at camera right.  Strobes triggered with PocketWizard Plus II radio triggers. 

Development: Self Developed in Kodak Xtol 1+2 dilution in Paterson Universal Tank using the Taco Method. 13 minutes @ 20 degrees Celsius. Kodak indicator stop bath. Ilford Rapid Fixer. Photo-Flo rinse.

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.
