Had Holgamods dot com make a box for a point & shoot 810. I use a Schneider 90mm Super Angulon and have a fixed focus of 3'5"ish. (Depth of field is only 3 to 4 inches at that distance) Wanted to be rid of some of the hassle of large format and just shoot. Big fan of Larry Fink’s narrow beam of light so I bring with me an old Nikon SB-26 and zoom the strobe to 85mm in manual. Cannot wait to afford large format digital someday. I dream of full frame 2 ¼. Mmmm, camera porn.


In order:

“Quills”, “Lace Library Tree”, “Ekstrom Library”, “Foggy Avenue”

First two shots are BEFORE Randy Smith restored my husband’s late grandfather’s Kodak Brownie Hawkeye. You can see quite a bit of flare and softness which is most likely due to grime/grease.

Second two shots are AFTER the restoration. Very little flare so also much better contrast and much sharper.
