    Yep. That's the spot. As for being me at 40, well, some days it's like that pic. Most days it's dealing with all sorts of $#&^$ so that I can afford a few days like the pic

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    I'm going ahead and adding this while at the same time having mixed feelings. The image looks so much better prior to converting it to Jpeg and right now I don't have a clue what I did wrong. This was taken with the Cambo WRS and Schneider 35mm then processed using a combination of C1Pro and CS6.

    Just as I was writing my thoughts on the color image the thought of converting to black and white entered it. Glad it did....

    I very often encounter a situation as well , where the "converted to jpeg" image does not look like the original at all , although I always use the same procedure .
    I think we should have a detailed discussion about how to convert properly .

    Not too sure what the heck I did. This was converted into Jpeg using CS6 as I wanted to test it out (I normally use C1 Pro). I'm away from the studio but will double double check when I return.

    Don

    At least the B&W turned out simi-okay........

    Oh just to add - I was more concerned about the sky than the ground. It was sunrise and the ground and cabin really light up.

    My first visit there. I was in total awe of the beauty of this place.

    Thank you Manouch and Graham.

    Graham, it took me over an hour to clean the camera with my brush, blower and cloth. It took me another hour to wash all the sand out of my hair.

    Second from last is the best IMO Bryan, there's an angel in there! Any thing at all in those highlights though? They've blown pretty harsh.

    I tried to bring them up a bit, but it is just all sunlight coming into an extremely dark area. I will try to bring out the floor a bit more, without making it look ridiculous.

    I tried to play around with the highlights and there is not much detail in there, and even when I am able to bring what is there out, it is too obvious of a correction to even try to keep in the final image.

    Agree. Assign changes appearance, while Convert maintains appearance in the destination space.

    I thought this was a picture of a kitchen you had to "update" because of some camera purchases, like Guy did.

    No LOL
    I do have the 28mm up for sale though.
    The shot was part of a commercial shoot and the only part I had in the kitchen was shooting it.

    I've been back about ten days so no. I was walking to San Marco Square about 4am when the earthquake hit. It was spooky being in those narrow passageways with 800-1000 year old buildings about 5 stories tall shaking like crazy.

    Graham Welland was kind enough to suggest some great places for photo opportunities in the Portland/Vancouver area. This from the Columbia River Gorge this week.

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Very nice. I hope you share some more images. It was a shame that we couldn't meet up as I'd loved to have shown you some of the local shooting locations - as you've seen it's quite scenic here isn't it?

    The TC & IQ140 & 24XL is just about the perfect Alpa WA travel outfit! I had that with my P40+ and really enjoyed it. It's almost a P&S!

    Btw, I'm off to Quebec City this week - anyone got any shooting recommendations?

    Thanks Graham, - yes I agree the IQ140, TC and 24XL is a very nice combination - none of the problems you see with the larger sensors. But the CF is needed.

    Thanks again for the suggestions, I'll post some more pictures when I get them worked up.

    Just got back from a whirlwind drive up to Oregon and back down the coast to CA. Did over 1700 miles in five days. I limited myself to one lens, the Rodenstock 40 on the Cambo. Got soaked photographing this one at Lower Proxy Falls...

    Okay, smart-a**---you really did put this up here...

    I was standing in about eight inches of water, teetering on tip-toes because I left my waders in the truck. Lots of water spray from the falls and time for only two exposures because the camera and lens were completely soaked. No empty hand to take notes here on settings. From memory I believe 5mm rear fall, 5mm left shift, and a smidge of tilt. ISO35 f/16 @ 1sec. Cambo, IQ180, Rodenstock 40mm.

    Don't ask about this one or others I may post from my Oregon trip. Let's just say, yes, there were movements. As much as I like the greenery and moss, I like this one from Upper Proxy Falls in B&W. ISO35, f/something @11 seconds, and some movements. Still trying to figure out how to work the autofocus on the Cambo...

    The perfect excuse to get undressed

    Yes, perfect geometry and I would like to say that nothing, absoutley not a single line or recomposition/cropping has been done in post.

    This is what I so much LOVE about the Alpa. The precision! I take my time to set it up, but I am still impressed when I develop the raw file that 9 times out of 10, the framing/composition is perfect and needs no alterations at all.

    It is reasuring and relaxing to be able to trust your equipment on assignment

    Out of curiosity, do you use the ground-glass for framing, or do you get the same precision of where the image corners get using a viewfinder? Does it get right at the first try? I was thinking that the viewfinder would have some parallax and/or alignment issues, especially since FOV changes with focus distance, but perhaps all that is compensated for? I haven't tried the ALPA system myself.

    I have a Linhof Techno, and currently the wrong markings on my ground glass (I shall get a new one with proper markings eventually ), so I estimate where the corners get, slide the back in take a test shot, look at the back's image review and make make some fine-adjustments shift/rise/fall if necessary to get the final framing.

    For landscapes I have been using the viewfinder satisfactory and groundglass for interiors. However, lately I have not been using either! I compose blindly and it is a sort of a sport of doing so.

    It has all become, in a sense, mathematical. In a "normal" interior shot I know many factors by heart. Startingpoint to place the lens/sensor at half the height of the room (if normal height), from there I know how much 2-4-8-12mm fall or rise will do. I am more often correct then have to recompose looking at the review.
    To stand deadcentre in the room, I either count the tiles or measure the D5 left and right. To check absolute parallellness to the back wall, I go again with the D5 hooked on the left side of the Alpa MAX and then a new reading on the right side until I get an equal reading.

    It is surprising how fast you learn the angle of view you get when you know your lens well. Ofcourse, it happens that I miss out, but never a lot. It is definitely not a case of doing 3-4 exposures to get the correct framing. I think, calculate in my head, measure distances and position the camera absolutely level before taking the first shot. So, being slow and picky helps.

    It actually helps me staying creative and seeing the composition "live" without any aid from my camera. Strange thinking? Possibly, but I like it and I am not afraid to work that way since I am getting the results I want and need.

    I don't think its strange at all Dan and I use my Rm3di and ML2 in very much the same way without GG or viewfinder. Much better to have the vision and spot the shot you want first, then figure out how to capture it secondary.

    Thanks! Interesting read. Being an amateur as myself I don't get to shoot often enough to develop that kind of skill, but I have started to use visualization more, simply because ground glass is not great in low light and/or wide angle. Still find image review on the back very useful, I would not be comfortable with shooting completely blind and just check the result back home.

    I don't use a light meter either, I simply guess the exposure and do a test shot, so the test shot is already integrated in my workflow. Quite often I get the exposure right first try, but it would require more regular shooting for me to guess right every time.

    I do not think that making things more difficult would make me more creative though. If there was a DSLR-like live view I'd use it. I cannot deny though that as an amateur it feels kind of cool being able to handle a camera that most others cannot

    I thought that architecture (internal or external) was designed to be observed from eye level (primarily, initially from the door or entrance) and you would start by levelling the camera at eye level, but consider changing the height, e.g. to better display the carpet|table top|ceiling?

    Your approach seems to be technical-perfection-by-numbers rather than creativity?

    I initially thought that the picture looked wrong, but that was because the angle of the curtain confused the parallel verticals - I would blame the naked lady!

    So do I. I check after every exposure. Obviously I must recompose sometimes to tweak, but my point is that the more precise you are in preparations, more often than not, composition is spot-on.

    You are completely right that my paid architectural shoots are "mechanical" and less creativity involved. Perfection-by-numbers is what my clients want. They do not want frog perspective or short DOF or extreme wides. They want, above all, images that represent reality in terms of space and feel.

    So, I am clearly contradicting myself here, but not entirely. Creativity also in my mind can be refered to be free-spirited and developing a personal workflow that not only works for the client, but also gives you as a photographer satisfaction. My workflow here triggers me to "think" photography and I bring that mindset when I am outdoors on my own personal projects.

    At least the B&W turned out simi-okay........

    Oh just to add - I was more concerned about the sky than the ground. It was sunrise and the ground and cabin really light up.
    Don, it's best to use "Save for web and devices" then choose one of the default settings (I think it's just JPEG). If that's what you're doing then the original file probably does not have a profile at all.

    I like the composition. The lighting makes the second one a bit more dramatic.
