Caltar 210mm @ F16 1/4th
Developed with Tetenal E6 in Jobo CPP2

Getting familiar with tilts to control the image and very happy with this. Missed blurring the edge of the table completely just slightly. Large format is so much fun!

A recent tip I picked up from some who does a lot of product photography is if you have a hard edge like this, and no access to an infinity curve you can sprinkle flour at that end of the table to make it softer. Doesn't look bad here though and wouldn't have noticed if you didn't point it out. I think you have a good amount of DoF.

I think for my tastes, the lighting is a bit too harsh, as there is a lot of contrast and for flower shots I prefer something a bit more delicate. That's all very subjective though and I doubt this looks anywhere near as good on screen as it does as a large print.

What do you mean by "tilts?" Is that the lens tilting to give selective focus? Glad to hear you are enjoying the format. Hopefully I'll get some time later this year to start playing with some of my film cameras more.

Timmy, that is exactly what I meant by the tilts movement. It allows you to shift the DOF plane which allowed me to focus from top down vs. front to back.
