Sinar F2 Portraits: Tribute to Yousuf Karsh

Well not quite a tribute but a first attempt to emulate his style! Shot again using sheets of Ilford HP5 film, and for all but two of these portraits, using a 300W fake Kino Flo from Amazon (Limo Studio) continuous fluorescent light source, a reflector, and some black and white filters. Having just recently worked on a film set producing some film stills and witnessing how film makers use continuous lights, my next plan is to add a second light using a 300 or 600W Arri tungsten light. There seems to be no end in sight for accumulating photography equipment!

Alice. Seeing the complete image on the ground glass of the Sinar can be challenging as in this shot where you can see the fluorescent light creeping into the top left-hand corner of the frame.
