magnificent Steve. Just like all your work. Recently I have been scouring my well used and thumbed copy of BOFV2 and after owning it for about 7 years now, still amazing little gems and details and shadows pop out at me. Its the same when I see a new Deviation from you...and when it is of the incredible Mosh...well it's like eating the best bacon sandwich in the world where the bread has been replaced with bacon...
this is a beautiful, simple shot, elegantly captured. I reminds me of Marilyn or Jackie-O ...a kind of sexy Cold War Hybrid of them both maybe! With so much white it was probably so tricky to keep the clarity and distinction of shades of colours so crisp,but once again, you kick ass!

Thanks so much for the kind words. It's funny, I myself don't even notice a lot of the details in my work until someone else points them out. We all have different focuses of attention. Concerning the Mosh shot, if shot with digital, I think it would've been hard to get a good image where all the whites weren't blown out. That's what I love about film, especially the T4, - the great tonal range. Both shadows and highlights are captured in such clarity so effortlessly.

I can't believe I didnt reply to this! Apologies for delay. Love your latest submissions. Like I said, I see your work and almost smell the film and hear the shutter click luring me to take shots!
Currently I use T-Max 100 quite alot, and when I started I was using fast Neopan, even 1600, mainly because I couldn't and still can't, use a flash! but then when I started utilising whatever available light is there etc, I tried to have the lowest ISO possible.
I tried a roll of T4 and immediately it was noticable that you were right about the tonal range.Do you use anything like Pan F 50 or FP4 125, anything a bit less popular than say 100 and 400 iso film?
I nearly always use the R09 one shot developer, can I ask what your chemicals of choice are?
Thanks again for the info and best of luck in Hong Kong! A roaring success is my prediction.
