BTS: Flower shoot 12-1-2013

Shooting some flowers tonight in the home studio with the 4x5 view camera with the 210mm lens and Carl Zeiss Softar 1 filter lit with the Alien Bees B800 strobe in the big @ss beauty dish with diffusion sock directly over and in front of camera position.  Ilford Delta 100 and Arista EDU 100 B&W films are the choice for these flower shots tonight. Going to try some variations on the Xtol developer times with these to test if I can get a bit more toe and shoulder on the resulting tonal curve.  

My OCD side wants to reach into this iPhone shot and adjust that diffusion sock so it is even all the way around the beauty dish.  lol
