Single Image — In Depth

Jasmine, Impromptu Portrait

Print by David Aimone

This image/print was done during a visit by Jasmine in 2018. The camera used was an 1898 Rochester Camera Company 5×7″ King Poco view camera, mounted with a Caltar 215mm f/4.8 lens shooting Ilford Fp4+ film and developed in Caffenol Delta Standard developer (coffee, washing soda and vitamin c).

This happens to be my most viewed photo on Flickr with almost 300,000 views.  A very narrow depth of field was used with the lens probably wide open at f/4.8, and natural light from the window into the room.

    This is a truly beautiful presentation. I find it surprising and highly gratifying that it is your most-viewd Flickr image. Couldn’t be better… bravo.

      Thanks Steve! A good example of taking the opportunity when one presents itself. As for the Flickr thing, I have no idea!
