I read about the photo "Potato #345" by Kevin Abosch which sold for a million Euros. So, I was thinking, I'll take a photo of a potato with a large format digital camera and give it away for free. My potato didn't look as interesting as Abosch's, so I asked my daughter to embellish it. What resulted I titled "The Most Interesting Potato in the World". Using the amazing Kodak Aero Ektar 7 Inch, it was able to cover the 9x11 inch sensor with a macro style shot. Then toned to Sepia in LightRoom.

But first I grabbed a pineapple at f/2.5:


Then I took an improved potato photo at f/16:


Camera: LargeSense LS911 Pre Production Camera
Large format digital camera (single shot sensor, size bigger than 8x10 inch)
Kodak Aero Ektar 7 Inch F2.5 178mm Lens
Paul Buff Flash Units
Photo Taken: March 14, 2016


This post was called "The Most Interesting Potato in the World" but I changed it to "f/2.5 and Loving It (Pineapple Up Close)" as it seems more appropriate. It is hard to take f/2.5 photos with a 9x11 sensor.
