Great shot Peter - I like it, being a fan of B&W film. I have had it in the back of my mind to do some macro with my view camera ( I have a Toyo monorail), but no macro lens as yet. I must put that on my list of bits to get!

Thanks, Steve. A G-claron is a fine lens, and they're relatively inexpensive. They do have an f/9 maximum aperture, though, and so when you take bellows extension into account, the ground glass can get pretty dark in the macro range. Next time I might try one of my 135mm or 150mm enlarging lenses, which are f/5.6. They're not in a shutter, but that's ok. Turn the room lights off, pull the dark slide, pop the flashes...


[AdminCR edit - corrected a confusing typo on the word "lens"!]
