Image taken with my Gaoersi 617 panoramic camera, Nikkor 90mm f/4.5 SW lens and Ilford Pan F plus film. Shot at f/32 aperture.
Development was done with R09 developer. It is cheap and creates sharp negatives but there is too much grain compared to my usual Ilford DD-X , so for images like this which are meant to be printed at 80 inches wide this may not be the ideal developer.
There was also a second image taken with the Gaoersi, a beautiful vertical panorama which took me about 20 minutes to compose, focus, use my LEE filters and very carefully calculate exposure. Its funny that after so much thorough preparation, I forgot to remove the dark slide before pressing the shutter ! An unforgivable beginner’s mistake that prevent me from having a great photo. We’ll these things can happen with a camera like this. I will get the shot the next time I visit that location !
