Hey Everyone! Ive been a member on this forum for a bit, but never posted here before as I was once a digital back user...now those days are long gone as I have returned to film
I stumbled upon this thread forum and I admire a lot of the work that is posted here. So I have posted a
link to my latest work for all to enjoy. Everything with the exception of a handful of images were shot with medium format film.
So without further delay, please check out my site:

Very nice, Justin. You do some beautiful work. Wonderful tones, great composition. I particularly like the infrared. Thanks for posting the link.
This photo I made 1983 on a small island in Norway. Camera was a pentax 67, 50mm lens, and Kodak plus-x.

Lovely Y Sol -- where is the island? I would love to go to Norway soon, and luckily they have some direct flights there from here. I would really love to make it way up north though -- to Svalbard and that area. Something about extremely isolated places really appeals to me. It is one of the reasons I moved to Iceland! Though I live downtown, I can be in a place where I feel like I am the last man on Earth within 20 minutes.
Anyway, three random photos:
Out in the middle of nowhere, as I was talking about:
Stuart - Lofoten in northern Norway is very photogenic.
Thanks Lars -- looking at some pictures, it does look gorgeous.
Hello Lars and Stuart,
for me the north of Norway is the best place on earth to shoot landscape.
Here are some more shots from hundred years ago when I was
a photostudent. (I'm still, because I never stop learning)
Nikon F2, 20mm, tri-x

Are you sure you weren't in Iceland?
Nice images Y Sol and Stuart! I love this feeling of isolation and loneliness!
Here is one from last winter on IR film. Mamiya 7 with 65mm.
Hasselblad snapshot from Hyde Park. Ilford delta 100.
And another one.
Some trees in the evening light.
Cooool Sizifo ....in particular the TREE with the X...
One of the first shot with the new reacquired 43mm for the Mamiya 7. I used a 64X ND filter; Fuji Reala, 2 sec. @ f/11. I think I have the same shot on Fuji Acros, but I haven't processed the film yet.
Torture test for the Mamiya 43mm . 1/125 sec at f/11 on Reala.
The photos in this thread are fantastic. Francois, I love what you did with the Mamiya 7. Stuart, your Iceland shots are so soothing. William...wonderful, as always. Do I see a new tool?...Russian tlr?
You guys know that lubitel means "lover" in Russian, right? It is very appropriate for images of your significant other...
P.S. Beautiful shots everyone. And thanks for the compliments Cindy.
Thanks William, Cindy and Stuart for your kind words.
Lovely image William
you folks are inspiring me to pull out my Contax Tix again ... :-)

Nice photos msglueck. I like the everyday life sort of feel...I think the color negative helps with that. Also, funny to see someone else using the Mamiya 7 and Rollei 6008AF...they complement each other well though, don't you think?
Many great images here!
I'm finally getting around to scanning a few recent shots myself. This one was taken with my recently acquired Leica R8 and 90mm Elmarit on Fuji Provia 100. I took the same shot with my Canon EOS 1V, 85mm f1.8 lens and same film. The Canon image has more snap and is more saturated, but in the end.....I preferred the Leica image. It looks more "true to life" to my eyes. Even so, the Canon did amazingly well....I was impressed with it and would have been very satisfied with it...if I didn't have the Leica shot for comparison.
The slide was scanned with my trusty old Canonscan FS2710. One of these days, I'll get the new Nikon 5000 scanner hooked up.
Here's another with the Leica R8 and 90mm Elmarit. This one on Ilford Delta 100 and also scanned with the Canon FS2710.
What more can I say.....I like taking photos of machinery, old junk etc.
One more....same details as above. Could probably use a bit more sharpening. I use the Vuescan software with my FS2710 and only apply sharpening in CS3.
Nice images Gary!
It is sometimes surprising what one can get for the price of a digital back!
Here is a 2 minutes exposure on Plus-X at f/11 with mamiya 7II and 65mm. This about 1/4 of the whole image.
First image on Fuji Acros. Mamiya 7 II with 43mm and 1.8 ND filter. 2 sec @ f/11. The negative is a little thin; maybe an extra stop exposure would have helped. The film seems to be not overly blue sensitive and might not need a yellow filter.
Here is a crop near the central part. The scan was done on Epson V700; nonetheless, the amount of detail is excellent for a wide angle.
Nice Francois -- the 43mm is showing the kind of detail that it is known for -- I am not sure ANY lens I have is sharper...and I have a lot of lenses. How did you process the Acros? I find it does very well at ISO 100, but that depends a lot on processing. I prefer it in Rodinal 1:100, Xtol 1:1 or FX-39.
For processing, I used HC-110 dilution B for 5 minutes with 10 sec agitation (4 inversions) every minute. I also shot Plus-X under the same lighting condition and processed it with the Acros. The Plus-X roll, which I rated at 100 ISO, turned out perfect.
I've used Rodinal and Xtol in the past, but not FX-39.
In a couple months, I'll have a real darkroom and will start experimenting with some divided developer recipes from Steve Anchell's Darkroom Cookbook.
Actually that shot was taken around the early 1990's

It really is hard to choose between the Leica R8/90mm Elmarit and the Canon EOS 1V/85mm f1.8 results. Both look very good to me.
This one from the Canon 1V. This really is a terrific film SLR....

One from a few winters ago. Nikon F3HP, 28mm f2.8 AIS (the latest version), Fuji Sensia 100 (outdated, not sure why I ever bought this film), Canon FS2710.
