    Jerry, thanks for your kind words First of all, The image above was indeed shot with the TC. I do like the 2:1 pano ratio and look for those images frequently and I both flatstitch with the MAX and make nodal stitches with the SWA or TC. However, I am not ruling out a one shot and crop out for a 2:1 in post. With the Aptus II 5 I did not do this because I thought I lost too much info, but with the Credo 60 I must admit that a native cropped out 2:1 is 76 cm wide @ 300dpi. I have printed 2 metre wide canvases from a file like that and the print was impressive with great detail and resolution. There is no hesitation from me 'planning' a 2:1 from one exposure.

    Now, I can see that people can easily look at my byline and think that is totally excessive and only gives bragging rights having 4 bodies. Truth is, I use them all, all the time. The TC is absolutely brilliant if I want tiny. It happens often, in fact exactly this with the image you refer to, that I take out the Alpa TC, the Credo and unscrew the centrefilter of the SK 35 XL and use it as a fixed f8. This is truly a small and light package and has so, so, so much power in terms of IQ. I put the circular bubble on top, a soft release and then I shoot from the hip and with the bubble I know when I'm level, I know the field of view by heart and I can ever so slightly point the cam up a bit or down a bit. It just works.

    The SWA is the perfect companion if you walking in a city. Again if I use the 35 (then with centrefilter) I often put on a default of 5-6mm rise and with the sportsfinder and cam at eyelevel you get spot with just about right foreground and buildings across the street with paralell lines. The SWA is quite a bit smaller and lighter compared to the MAX which means this is the body I choose if I go hiking. It is still compact and light and most of the images are shot zeroed, but with the possibility to shift when I need to. Personally the SWA is also the most beautiful Alpa and so well balanced with the excellent grips on both sides.

    The MAX is my choice on all architectural assignments. 95% of all interiors are shot with the Alpa Max and the Schneider 28 XL. I simply love this setup and the only, and I mean only, thing I don't like is the dense centrefilter for the 28. The vignetting issue is to my work far more disturbing than the colourcast. With the Credo 60 I go 8mm and can easily correct, but the centrefilter steals over 2 stops and still does not effectively cancel out vignetting completely at f8. Anyway, without Alpa Max my bread and butter work would be more difficult. For instance shooting into bathrooms with large mirrors I frequently have horisontal shift as well as rise or fall.

    The FPS is ofcourse übercool with endless possibilities. If, and this is a big IF, the upcoming Schneider PC 28 tilt/shift is as good as the tech lenses, then I could get by with FPS as only body. But I have doubts that this will be the case. I have compared FPS + Tse24 and Max + SK 28 XL and the latter wins handsdown. The dream would be the FPS with small integrated tilt/shift adaptors that could be used with wide tech lenses. A lot to ask for and maybe completely impossible, but I guess one can always wish.....

    Funny thing is...if I didn't have any Alpa at all. Starting from scratch. I would most probably buy the STC.....
    Dan,

    Thank you for your comprehensive and valuable sharing of experiences with ALPA in your interior and exterior work. Your work illustrates what is possible at the highest levels of professional photography.

    It's a test frame for a timelapse (hence 16:9). Pretty much untouched.

    The finished article will pop

    I should again stress that this was just a test shot, primarily for checking composition - I've barely touched it processing wise.

    The original set of RAW files (same shot at all ISO's on the IQ250) are linked to in this thread if you're interested in checking them out.

    Kind regards,

    Gerald.

    Alhambra - Granada.

    Tripods not allowed and walking through with a guide with time pressure. Hundreds of tourists just about everywhere and ropes and signs where ever you turn. I nightmare for my normal slow working pace and tripodshooting.

    The frustrating thing was that there are countless of stunning images to be had - IF they would have let me in there alone.

    From three hours of rushing around I only have three or maybe four images from a place where I could 'see' hundreds....

    Oh well, this is one of the very few I was happy with. Handheld, 1/60, f8, iso 100, 7mm rise. And I had about 1/2 a second to expose when nobody was within the comp.

    Dan, it is funny, I have just been reading about 19th century photography and the Pictorial photographers and composite printing. And now, in the beginning of the 21st century, we have this early technique and aesthetic brought back to life (again). Well done.

    Thank you very much Ben, fantastic compliment! Truth is, I was frustrated because I saw incredible light and scenes everywhere but had no chance to 'work' in the touristic circumstance. But, this one actually gave me 'some' satisfaction that I could walk away with atleast one good one.

    So very true! this kind of aesthetic has been around for a very very long time and far from finding new ways of artistic expressions, but it really appeals to me. Timelessness I believe is a good thing. Thanks!

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    Any chance you can go during a quieter season, when it's a lot earlier or too hot for tourists, etc? Shooting in Jerusalem as you can imagine I've often had to deal with exactly the same things, often it helps to get the timing right even if it means waiting 6 months until you can get a clear scene and some peace and quiet.

    But isn't this what the artist does. It isn't finding something new, it is just building on the old and putting it together in new and interesting ways. And I prefer your interpretation of this craft to the Victorians. Although, they were darn dedicated--36 images and six weeks of work:

Shooting in Jerusalem as you can imagine I've often had to deal with exactly the same things, often it helps to get the timing right even if it means waiting 6 months until you can get a clear scene and some peace and quiet.
    Unfortunately no such thing. It is incredibly popular and if it is open for the general public, there are numerous busloads every opening hour. Nowadays you must have booked a guide to enter most of the buildings to be able to see them inside. If you have no guide, then you are pretty restricted and on top the guides have timeschedules to follow.

    There is only one way - to get assigned by Alhambra themselves! I am actually looking into this possibility and I have an 'inside-guy' that I am going to contact to see what could be done. There are reference images to be had in there.....

    Ice and snowmobile track.

    The image was shot a couple of days ago. I shot it perpendicularly straight on without any shifting or tilting, so it's not so much a demonstration of tech cam features. I'm very pleased with the image though.

    Linhof Techno, Leaf Aptus 75, Scheider Digitar 47XL at f/16.

    Normally I shoot these type of subjects with longer lens than the 47XL (the SK72 is my favourite) as I don't want any perspective effects in them, but I needed to get the structures at the right scale and still reach over the camera to focus and shoot, so I needed to use a wider lens.

    Re: Technical Camera Images

    When I saw this rock the other day sticking out of the snow I immediately knew what image I wanted, an isolated rock on a white backgorund, that would look artificial but when you look carefully you see that the surrounding white is actually real snow. The lower contrast of the bright snow enhances the effect. The "artificial" look is also enhanced by the special structure of the marble rock.

    Unfortunately nature was not as kind as I needed to fulfill my "inner image". I could not fully isolate my rock, but got some additional rock in the upper right corner. What to do? Drop the idea, or fake it?

    I've attached the original, and an edited version which shows my idea. I generally don't edit my images (remove things), but in this case I might do an exception. If you tell the audience what you've done I think it's okay.

    Shot with Linhof Techno, SK90 and Aptus 75.

    Torger,
    I think it's ok to manipulate the image and clone out things, if you're honest with the viewer. Another way to make this kind of manipulation more "acceptable" is to make even more modifications - like turn it into B/W, bump the contrast. That way, the picture becomes more "artsy" and one expects it to be less a representation of "reality".
