    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    With work having me use a 500D and my personal photography being on 4x5 these days I have little to share, but I thought I'd share a couple of shots which I sneakily took on the M9 for work, since instead of real-estate they had me shooting location shots of a few nice areas of suburbs I usually shoot in. They're rather boring and shot under bland light, so I apologise in advance I also didn't level the horizon cos the editor will do that

    Shot of the girls is 75mm Summicron, the rest are the 18mm ZM Distagon - Shot with a B+W Kaesmann top-pol and Singh-Ray 2-stop soft grad.

    Ashwin: Terrific! The composition in this one's esp. excellent! Did you offer medical assistance? Of course, these are the PG-13 photos. I stayed at home and worked. Couldn't get through the parade to my office, anyway.

    Cheers, Matt

    So it's basically a pagan festival? I approve of this.

    Great Stuff Ashwin - looks like loads of fun. Daniel - shooting work with a 500d?

    Here it's been grey and dreek, so I took the 75 'cron and took a few snaps of the bracken at f2 (I always love the bracken heads)








    Just this guy you know

    Wonderful series Ryan, your scenes of Savannah photographs remind me of the film, "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil."

    The last is my favorite, love the colors, lines, reflection and the subject matter, a very nice capture!

    Matt, out of the two, the black and white is my favorite, love the light and the shadows in the shot. . . . . . for me it captures the politics of the capital and is a subtle representation of Washington D.C.!

    Glad your daughter is doing better, Robert. And these two pics are priceless... especially the concern on the younger girl's face. However, I think that the b/w shot of your older daughter is one of the best images you've every posted here. Truly.

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    Jono - yeah it's the equipment they had, and the argument being that they want a consistent look across all the work the business spits out. It's mostly real-estate anyway and files at small reproduction sizes (~3-4 megapixel) so no biggie. Not having to buy an SF-58D and guestimate framing (due to hot-shoe being populated) with an ultra-wide is nice as well.

    Ashwin, Love the bride on the beach, a tender moment, and the brides in the parade, a bit from Alice in Wonderland! . . . . . as always beautiful captures!

    . . . . . missed the Fremont parade this year and it looks like the weather did not stop the participants and folks along the route from having a lot of fun!

    David, the duck are a cool & fun shot but the chandeliers at the Riviera is just fantastic! Love it!

    I really like the b/w version of this Matt, but not sure I like it better than this color shot. The light here is so good... and the colors are so saturated, but not excessively so. I like this a lot.

    Frank, a beautiful series, love the centered color in the first shot with the use of the vignette, very pleasing to my eye. Just love the color, detail and focus at the far end of the shot with the soft blur leading to the artist and the wall! . . . . . and on the third I love the how the colors in the shot and sharp details of the calligraphy are in contrast to black garb of the man with the gray hair and wrinkled hands! All three are wonderful captures.

    A guy just to my left, immediately started in on me about how I should ask her permission first, and how I need her permission in writing or I could be sued, etc., etc. I thanked him for enlightening me, and wished him a good day, and started to leave. He asked if I wasn't going to delete the shots I took. I said, "No, I think I'll keep them", and walked away.

    The first 3 are taken at the spa at Kalithea in Rhodes, which we last visited 20 years ago. Nice to see it restored to something like it used to be when it was built.

    Thanks LLoyd, it was my first time on a trip without my DSLR, just the M8 plus a small pocket TZ10, quite liberating! The great thing was that nobody played the blindest bit of notice of me with the M8.

    This truly is spectacular. Wonderful tonality in all of these which could not have been easy given the high contrast lighting.

    I enjoyed them all immensely

    David, agreed a wonderful series.
    Robert, great pics of your kiddos...
    Matt, it was great to see you today at Glazers. Nice to see some of these pics in print, and good luck with finding that new lens...


    And of course, thanks to everyone (Lloyd, Matt, Joe, Dan, Jono, Matt, Steve, et al) for your recent kind words!

    Jono: The bracken head series in B & W is very interesting. Natural forms, but almost lifeless. Certainly look at them differently.
    Dan: Thanks. Black and white? Shades of gray? "Mr. Smith goes to Washington"? I know what you're saying, but, some days, a wacked out HDR might actually be more representative! (sorry, that's a bit cynical, isn't it? )
    Lloyd: Thanks. It does have a different 'expression" then the B & W one.
    Lloyd: Thanks! That's one of those where you zoom in and say "hey, that's cool". Cropped and 'framed'. Pretty incredible lens.
    David: Great set of photos from Rhodes. The tonality of your B & W gives a sense of the strong light and warmth of the island. I esp. like the last one with the man and the two kids.
    David: The color photo at the harbor is excellent. Terrific composition and very natural color.
    Robert: You've been posting some nice shots of your very photogenic kids. Cool 'crop' on the first.
    Mohmmad: Thank you!
    Mohammad: Nice capture and pp of the sculpture and the man.

    Cheers, Matt

    From the 2011 Coney Island Mermaid Parade... (All 100 shots)

    Shot with the M9 and 1,1/50 Nokton. Wanna learn to speed focus? Shoot a parade at f/4! (though my goal was closer to f/1.7)

    Thanks, Lloyd! The Sonnar is a lens from the Gods!

    Thanks, Ashwin! Loving your Solstice shots. Goth cuties never get old.

    Thanks for the kind words Michael, they are appreciated. Yes, the CV 75/1.8 and 50/2 Cron had to leave to make room for the 75/2. (. . . . . and I still hope to sell a couple of more lens to cover the new arrival)

    btw, I have not heard of a 'pissing cupid' before, does it have another name?

    . . . . . and it is a beautiful shot of a 'pissing cupid'!
    Indeed, being so close to the beach has its benefits! Makes the commute worthwhile, and is a great way to blow off a lunch hour. I need to find a new haunt though (and I have been branching out).

    I can understand that. But I think it's a fair trade off!

    A "pissing cupid" is another name for a cherub fountain; some of them, well, are peeing...

    Thanks all

    I used to hate pics of kids and flowers, until I had them and a garden

    I've had the same experience. Much more convenient, size-wise, and no one paid any attention to me at all.

    Very nice, Michael. I especially like these two. I enjoyed the entire gallery. So were you in costume like the other photogs?

    Thanks, Lloyd! Yes, these two are among my favorites also. I know one of those 100 is going up on my wall... Just not sure which yet.

    I wouldn't say I was in costume... But I had on a bright blue/white Hawaiian shirt so as not to look like a tourist. Photo vest? Don't think so.

    Mostly the Zeiss 18mm Distagon, but I also used the small 28mm Elmarit ASPH quite a lot. The harbour shot was taken with a CV 35 Skopar Classic.

    I carried the 50 Cron and CV 75 Heliar but used them only a couple of times on the trip.

    Mono conversion was done in Aperture, quite a lot of orange filtering to give the effect I wanted. The colour shot was also adjusted a bit in Aperture to make it slightly more monochromatic, again to get the effect I desired rather than be entirely accurate.

    Thanks for all the nice comments, much appreciated. I'm always a bit nervous about posting my shots and I know I should also comment on the work of others in this thread, but often am totally in awe of the art here and am not able to add much besides wow! It does inspire me to try harder, many thanks.
