I had posted an earlier shot of my Grandmother that I shot last Sunday during her 91st birthday party. That earlier shot was on Ilford HP5+ while this is one I did on Fujifilm HR-T 30 green sensitive X-Ray film for comparison.
Camera: Calumet 45NX 4x5 large format monorail view camera.
Lens: Fujinon-W 210mm F5.6 lens in a Copal B shutter. Carl-Zeiss Softar-1 filter on lens to add some edge softness.
Film: Fuji Super HR-T 30 medium speed green sensitive X-Ray film. Purchased as 8x10" sheets and cut down to 4x5". Film rated at 100 ISO.
Exposure: 1/60th @ F16.
Lighting: Because of the tight space this was taken in, I was limited to a single strobe and small(ish) light modifier. I used a Alien Bees B800 @ 3/4 power with a spill kill reflector shot through a 34" Westcott shoot-through umbrella placed camera left aimed at a 45 degree angle to subject.
Development: Self Developed film in Rodinal (Adox Adinol) 1:100 in three reel Paterson Universal Tank using Mod54 six sheet 4x5 insert. 6 minutes @ 20 degrees Celsius with minimal inversions. Tap water stop bath. Ilford Rapid Fixer. Photo-Flo. Hung on shower curtain to dry on film.
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. Cropped to taste in Lightroom 4.
