Wait, so how are you doing this?

Just the same as my other slide film images - I shot a roll of Katie on slide film (Kodak iso 100) during the same session as those other shots. I simply had it processed, but requested that it not be cut. Then I brought it back into the studio, clipped it to the softbox and shot it at iso 100, f/13, 1/200th (with a few variations, of course) and there you go. Very easy.

I actually was going to ask you for some suggestions about trying this with medium format Velvia. My MF knowlege is basically zero, so I wouldn't know where to begin. Any suggestions for a rentable, idiotproof MF camera? My Holga experiments were terrible, so that's out...

Re: How?
Oh, man, talk about brain freeze. Slide film. Duh! I was like "no, he can't be making a film frame in photoshop and then free transforming each image to fit into the frame, 'cuz that would like take forever." Then I though there was some program out there that does it automatically.

See what not using film is doing to me!!!

As far as MF, I have the old workhorse Mamiya RB67, and I'm sure you could rent that for cheap (or, hell, they way prices for MF stuff is falling you could find one in the want ads for pennies on the dollar. Plus it gives you a nice big 7x7 neg.

What happened to your Holga experiments?

If I was closer I'd just let you borrow the Mamiya. . . d'oh.

Re: How?
Thanks for the camera suggestion. I looked around a bit, and although I'd been thinking about renting, I might just wait a bit and buy one. No harm in owning, right?

Holga? Disaster, from beginning to end. Lets just say I never managed to get any film processed... when the camera jumped out of my pocket and shattered on Bleecker Street, I called it a day...

And yes, too bad I'm not closer - I'd definitely take you up on borrowing. We actually did pass by Nashua a couple weeks ago on the way back from Conway. Maybe next time we can stop by!
