Sunday Still Life - shot with a ‘51 Graflex Speed Graphic (swing modified), using a Graflex/Wollensak 135mm f4.7 Optar lens, on Ilford HP5+ 4X5 sheet film - utilizing a continuous roll of black paper. Lighting consisted of two continuous 500 watt sources, one bounced off the ceiling overhead and the other in a large silver umbrella camera right slightly above the subject material.

NOTE to self - next time use a window shaped soft box with tape to simulate window grilles/panes of glass.
