Forgotten Workspace, large format film photography

This scene was a test of how well Provia could capture a scene with a LOT of dynamic range. Metering puts this scene at 7 stops, from the darkest ceiling at 10 seconds to the bright trees out the window at 1/20. It’s confirmed – slide film is good for about 5 stops, maybe 4 1/2 🙂 The trees are obviously blown. The edge of the window (at 1/3 second) held good detail. If the day was overcast and I got down to 4 stops of range, this would have turned out a bit better – if still a boring shot 🙂
