Last week, I posted the Hasselblad shots from a cold, rainy night. For all the gory details behind these pictures, visit that installment. This week, I have a few 4×5 frames taken with my Toyo 45AII large format folding camera from the same night. The 4×5 pictures of the bridge itself are much better than the Hasselblad shots, but the 4×5 shot of the traffic on Water Street from the bridge is much less vibrant than the Hasselblad. I remember I had to shoot the 4×5 traffic shot at f8 which is a little extreme for a lens that ranges from f5.6 to f64. There was too much vibration on the bridge for a longer exposure, so I was stuck with f8 and like 4 seconds.
These shots were also developed in Xtol 1+1 for 10 minutes. I used a double sized Patterson tank and the “taco method.”
