    Rafael, gracias! that tree was amazing and I tried long and hard to capture its complex structure.

    Shelby, thanks! it boils down to come up with the ideas...the image itself is ofcourse easy to do but it must come to you first

    Sbaze & GMB, cheers, appreciate you want to see more!

    Joe, thanks, yes hyperfocal focusing. I have not tried out Capture One yet, but I am going to activate it soon. So far everything has been done in CS4.

    This image is of my two kids. SK 35XL • No centrefilter • no shift • 1/250 • f8

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Being new to using a tech camera, I find this thread useful, especially with more detail on how each image was captured, what movements were used if any, tilt, shift, special technique, etc.
    Without this extra info, I agree this thread is really pointless

    on another note, I mentioned this before, Guy and Jack you should put together a tech camera workshop. :-)

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    I enjoy making tech and view cameras work for a living. This was actually done with an Arca Monolith, but same movements available on the Alpa Max I usually use.

    Rodenstock 135mm ApoSironar S, f11, 2 degress forward tilt, 3mm back rise.

    IQ180 with default sharpening (140). Manual blend of four brackets to tame specular highlights. Daylight.

    I have about a 4" DOF under these conditions. This image is in good focus across about 3', though it does soften in the deeper areas at the bottom. It would take forever to do this with focus stacking - given the blended brackets.

    The high resolution minimizes moire in the fabric and wires. The CCD handles the transition into dark areas well. Sorry, the jpegs don't render it well.

    The IQ lets me do these types of images untethered (focus mask), which is nice because I am on a ladder about 8' in the air.

    All in all, a good working setup.

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Woody,

    I'm a sucker for old barns, isolated trees, and old farm machinery. So you've hit the trifecta. It looks like you're beginning to see some fall color in CT. I ended my trip to the Asheville area early due to the remnants of the tropical storm, but early fall color was evident in the region north of Asheville. I know from your previous posts that you shoot the TC mainly handheld, and I was wondering what shutter speeds you used for this series of images, especially the one of the three trees.

    Joe

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Woody,

    Never mind. I found it. 1/60 sec. for the tree image and 1/125 sec. for the homes. Obviously a much steadier hand than I have.

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Thanks Jack. It is still raining a little here in Georgia with heavy over cast. Actually the "ladder" is an arbor over a concrete bench. The wind was blowing hard resulting in a blurring of some of the ferns and leaves of the trees, but I liked the feel of it. My primary purpose for making images at that time was to test out the live view of the IQ 180 for compositional purposes. I did not need a ND filter at all with the heavy clouds to get my composition. Yesterday, when it was not as cloudy I could compose using live view without a filter as long as I set my lens on f 22. I don't think I will need the ND filter very early and very late in order to successfully use live view. I find using live view to compose much better than without it. Charles

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Ed, the Oak Alley Plantation image is stunning with much eye appeal; it may be one instance where there can be little debate about what composition works best. I lived in New Orleans for three years many decades ago and visited there just before Katrina. If I make it back I would like to get a few shots at Oak Alley Plantation with some colorful leaves.

    Peter, I really like your image! I might like to see a bit darker in the lower quarter-tone, or maybe more black overall, but otherwise, excellent!

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Cambo WRS, Schneider 72mm and Phase One P65+.
    The image was processed this morning as a test to see the improvements in C1 6.3
    ICC Profile set at Phase One P 65+ Outdoor Daylight with high contrast film.
    Custom white balance in C1. The LCC was performed with color cast, light falloff and dust removal all checked. The file was then saved as a tiff and opened in CS5 where I used a slight adjustment in levels, added the watermark and saved as a jpeg. All in all not too bad for less than 10 minutes work. The reds are a little more pronounced in the jpeg version than in the tiff. Tried saving 2 separate ways and still came up the same.

    Quick shot from this morning in Yosemite. Shot with Cambo and Rodie 32mm with some fall. This is residual smoke from a fire that has been lingering for a about a week.

    Here's another view from our morning shoot in a recent fire area of Yosemite, still full of lots of smoke. This was the Arca RM3Di, 40 HR-W with 10mm rise and 1 degree forward tilt. I liked the rainbow flare spot so left it in:

    Some shots made since acquiring a Cambo, using either a P30 or P45+. No stitching w/ these, just crops.

    No special Guy steak this trip, just Jack BBQ rib-eyes (huge) last night, local (excellent) Mexican food tonight, and we have not decided tomorrow's menu yet . We hope to get some T-storm activity tomorrow, stay tuned! And BTW Lance, missing you on this one!
