    It would be almost impossible to blow out highlights with Kodak Portra 400 at ISO 200. To do anything like blow out highlights with that film, you would need to be shooting at ISO 25 or even ISO 3 probably. All of the sky detail is likely to have been captured in the negative, as the film has crazy overexposure tolerance.

    If you want to see more of this sky detail in your scans and prints though, you will need to control the subject brightness range at some point, either during exposure (e.g., ND grad) or in post (e.g., virtual ND grad).

    Another trees and lane photo. Taken with a 1950 Ensign Selfix 820 with Ross Xpres f/3.8 lens on Ilford XP2. I just love the depth of detail this camera seems to capture.

    Folks.. This is ideal Example of doing close up work on 6x6 Rolleiflex Rolleinars close up lenses.
    This is Rolleinar 2 on Provia 100 , Test Shot. So Sharp and amazing.I am sure this will be very good for headshots!

    I don't actually use my Rolleinars that often because it's a pain to take them on and off, but they can be handy and the resulting images are usually perfectly fine. They wouldn't be my first choice for portraits because they tend to exaggerate the nose (I'd rather use my SL66E, if I have the option), but they'll do well enough if that's all you have.

    I carried my Rolleinars for three weeks in Japan, but it looks like I only used them once for a pic of a huge crab we ate for lunch at a seafood market (pictured below is only the left half of that crab). I did see a woman using a Rolleinar 1 to photograph some deer in Nara, however, as shown below.

    @Taimoor: yes the Rolleinars are excellent, managed to pick up a 1 and a 2 a few years ago, really great for headshots. This was with a Rolleinar 1:

    The Portraits on Film thread

    @skysh4rk: yeah I only tend to use them when I have a specific shot/framing in mind, the distortion isn’t too bad imo and if they were good enough for Irving Penn....

    Beautiful captures. I am amazed by how sharp they are! Not tried Headshots but it was Just something that came in my mind. Rolleinars 1 & 2 came with my Rolleiflex GX and found them in box. Never got a chance to test them. Though looks easy to get on/off

    Well John I agree the colours are not spot on and I thought it had a very slight magenta cast..I did a colour print at the time (30 years ago) and I will look for it to see what it is like, maybe chemicals somehow got onto to the neg and cause a smudge for the yellowing of the jumper or as you said maybe the shadow of me effected the shot.
    Anyway I have a good excuse i.e. not bad result for a 30 year old colour neg :D
