I shot a test image using my Bender 4×5 racked out all the way with my 150mm lens mounted.? The image is a shutter from a Agfa Isolette that is currently partially disassembled.? The exposure ended up being 72 seconds at f32 on a Polaroid Type 51 negative.
The shutter is floating on the end of a Manfrotto Flex Arm.? It is stuck there with some silly putty.? The background is about a foot back and is simply some black fleece from a fabric store draped over the back of a chair.? Lighting is from two continuous 46 watt (150 watt equivalent) daylight balanced fluorescent lights in reflectors.? One to the left of the camera, and one directly above the shutter.
