Visited Las Vegas last week for CES (the Consumer Electronics Show).
These are from the newly opened Cosmopolitan hotel. The first and third are with the 24 lux. The second and fourth are with the WATE.
Lloyd, Woody, Ceh, Steve and David ... Thank you very much!
Ceh, love the contrast in the two portraits!!
David, outstanding shots! Everyone of them. Definitely a master with the WA
A cold day last week. 50 Lux asph.
M9, 21 Lux
Great stuff, Steve. Love the treatment. That last one is especially good.
You've done some amazing work with that lens... sold me for sure (now if I only had the shekels!)
Wonderful posts this week!
i've been out of town. These were taken on Main St., Durango, Colorado. Cheers, Matt.
1. M9; 50mm f/1.4; 1/750s @ f/5.7; ISO 160
2. M9; 50mm f/1.4; 1/1000s @ f/6.7; +2/3 EV; ISO 160
Great Vegas UWA shots David!
Bill, turbulent winter scene, nice composition and subtle colours.
Steve, Great shots as usual, lots of character, and really like your B&W processing.
I also really like your processing on these two scenes Matt.
Here's one from today, a promo shot for a band. The blood they usually put on as part of the stage performance, but I added it digitally for them so they didn't have to get sticky. 75 Cron at f/2.8, off-camera 300W strobe at full power to the right, bounced off a foil umbrella, triggered wirelessly. 3 stop ND on the lens, 1/180s @ ISO160.
Matt, Superb shots! Love the first shot
Daniel, excellent shot. Great setting and lighting
Mike & Daniel, Thanks A Lot!
Matt, Great Color,Depth & Comps! Nice to see you!
Daniel, Raw,Bloody,Kick A$$ Shot!
it is not easy to shoot with the M9 into the Sun, especially with the "king of flare" summicron pre-asph (but I keep trying)
David: Excellent Vegas shots! I know you go there, so, we don't have to. (insert thumbs up and LOL, here)
M9, 21 Lux
Steve, I like no. 3, the guy reminds me a of a good friend of mine (who looks a bit like Hagrid from the Lord of the Rings movie :-) )
also like CEH's image from the mountains, makes me want to go hiking in the Slovak mountains again (haven't been for almost 20 years, despite being in Slovakia every week, only for business...)
Down in the woods today, M8/50 'cron. I could almost hear banjos in the distance
I spent the holidays in Hawaii but it rained a lot, so I took a lot of cloud photos. Both with 35mm Summicron.
Sunrise, December 30, 2010 (still jetlagged and waking up too early) After the skies brightened and the soft colors faded, I went indoors and cleaned the sensor.
Sunset, December 24, 2010. Another rainy day, but towards the evening, the rain stopped briefly as the skies lit up like a giant golden softbox:
Nice work Jason!
Great shots everyone!
M9 from yesterday.
Did a workshop at a pottery factory near Sacramento (Gladding McBean).. opened in 1875, and still operating today.
It's amazing in this day, for a company to open their doors to 25 photographers for a weekend.. giving them complete, unrestricted access to every acre of the facility with cameras, with no employees there... Huge firing kilns (they make sewer pipe there) the 40 feet in diameter (and firing while we were there).. massive extruders to push the clay to make pipe.
I shot most of it with the M9 (some Aptus shots too)... Jack shot almost entirely with his Phase back.. so there should be additional shots coming in the MF thread as well.
this is just an interesting comparison between the older 35mm Preasph lux, shot wide open, and stopped down a bit (all files unsharpened)
Jim, that must have been a fun shoot! Nice set!
