"WIDELUXING" CAPE MAY HAWK WATCHRead Now
Well....welcome to a Widelux...which was a panoramic Camera created in the 1960's and made in Japan. It allows for a wide angle view, which I used on the above shot, and shot with film. The two areas marked in the sky are the kettle of vultures and one eagle on the left hand side, and the Black Swan on the right hand side. You can't read the text, as only the line is visible to roughly where the birds are located. Just for fun....
This was shot using Kodak Tri-x 400 film, ....I developed the film, scanned it to make it a digital image, and adjusted for exposure just a bit. The funny thing about a Widelux Camera is that there is no visible 'lens'. But there is one but it is hidden as the camera rotates like a tank turret and captures a 120 degree view. My goal is to capture our own teams of 'birders' as they participate in various functions or Big Sits etc..from the platforms at Forsythe. Stay tuned as those approach.
