Flowers by the window (TEST PHOTO)
First photo taken with my new-to-me Toyo 810G view camera. As I do not have the ground glass for the 8x10 back, I had to use the 4x5 back to take this photo.
Roses in a vase by the living room window. Not the most ideal lighting but I just set the flowers up as a test subject so I could play with the camera - and since I had the camera and subject already set up - I might as well take a photo! Total test photo.
Toyo 810G with 4x5 reducer back. Schneider - Kreuznach Symmar 355mm lens. Film used was Arista EDU 100 rated at 100 and shot at 1/8th of a second at F11.
Yes, I had no real control over the lighting, and yes the yoga literature should have been removed, and yes the background leaves a lot to be desired but I was just playing around with the flowers and the camera - I didnt even plan on taking a photo but in the end I decided, what the heck, load up the camera and take a shot!
I'm actually fairly pleased with the resulting image.
