Oh my... this is crazy! This was my first ever 8x10 large format shot!!! I have NO CLUE what do do about an f stop. This was shot f/8 and was close up..... the depth of field was what... a 1/2 inch!!!!!! There is one hair of sharp focus right on the shoulder closest to the camera. I wanted a somewhat shallow depth of field, but this is crazy! LOL.
The image has such a bizarre feel to me... and the dynamic range is like nothing I have seen. On smaller format film cameras... let alone digital... there would have been NOTHING in the shadow detail. I just wish this shot was focused at least to the first eye! It would have been awesome.
Holding up a negative this size is crazy... I just love it. Now I am going to order in some transparency film... can't wait to see one of those 8x10. Love it.
