Peter, I like this one a lot.
Gorgeous models and shot Guy.
How I want to shoot Tokyo Peter. Very cool image.
Love the colors Jerome, Etrump and Bill.

Fashion accessory shoot yesterday.
Another from yesterday.
Guy, Joe, you're tempting me to give up landscapes....
But here's another, nonetheless!
Love your landscapes Bill. Can't imagine a better way to experience Fall from Hawaii.
You're very kind, Joe!
Soon I will be wishing I were in HI...winter is never far behind fall!
Well this is a FUN with MF. Lol

I'll post my keepers tomorrow.

Greeting from Denver.
Well I'm still in mental debate on 1 or 2 of these for myself but I shot everything with the 110 LS with the IQ 160 at full rez. Have to say shooting MF here was just a load of fun for me. I love the challenge and everything was shot handheld. But the good news is it landed me a lot of work.
Peter, lovely pano and BW conversion.
Guy, amazing shots and under such harsh light conditions!
Guy, you too are convincing me to give up landscapes...though I suppose your shots are a sort of landscape....
BTW thanks for the compliment.
Two from the Eastern Sierra's last week

Lol . Problem is this age bracket is the meat of the industry. I honestly don't agree with it either. Like to see the industry main thrust a bit older.
Thank You Graham
When I saw this tractor, I envisioned a B&W Sepia. Jim Collums
pictures of trains and rusty old things entered my mind.
I processed a few B&W versions, but in the end prefered the color.
had a test shoot this afternoon with an awesome model and a new location. i wanted to check out a few things before a larger shoot on monday.
it was also my first shoot a) with the 55/2.8, b) with the 210/4, c) relying on the mamiya + aptus 22 as my main rig.
anywho...a few unretouched photos, right out of camera and through lightroom. the last few are using this totally awesome vari-color filter a family friend found in her garage, no photoshoppery.
Great work everyone! Guy... those skin tones are so lovely!
Well... good news. It works! (my RZ setup). Finally got my adapter on the cam, mask in the viewfinder, batteries installed, yada, yada... and it works like a charm.
A first shot.
Stepped out on the balcony and grabbed a closeup of a christmas cactus next to the front door. This shot belongs squarely in the "shots of my cat" genre.

Shoot with a student model this afternoon... let the fun begin!
Guy, georgous use of light to accentuate the innocent feel of the models (are they like 14 or something?)

Blonde is 15 and brunette is 18. I won't shoot anyone looking older than they are though. My wife being in this business on the agent, casting, manger/schools end that computes to be a bad thing. Being a parent myself i would not want my kid looking much older than they are. Keep them young and fresh.

Great capture of Emerald Bay at sunrise! It is rare to have any portion of Tahoe that calm at any time, kudos!
Thank you Jack! A word from you means a lot to me.
@wentbackward - thanks! glad you liked the shot!

So, I finally found some time to start on my last trip to HK and Singapore. I will probably post more stuff soon. This time I selected something different and not to typical for HK. It's just a quick BW upload, because I was to tired after working for 10 hours on panoramic imagbes to do any color work...

I have a top modeling agent at my house for a few days staying with us. She insisted I put this one in my book.
Back to Hawaii for a couple of weeks, this time Maui. More of a vacation this week, next week hopefully do some serious shooting. Did stop and grab this one last night,
DF/IQ180 75-150 at 75mm, 4 seconds at f/11 ISO 35
Finally getting a shot or two with the RZ. I love this camera (even though my viewfinder mask isn't quite right yet). Finally feel like I'm shooting at the speed that I need to.
My better half.

Agreed, the best one you have posted. The dark space on the right and the shadow of her hem nail it.
Christopher - fascinating! Can't wait to see more.
One last test of the RZ out on the balcony... my daughter.
Was seeing how the 110/2.8 renders transitions from a shaded foreground to a strongly lit background. I have to admit, to 110 in tandem with the aptus II sensor is pretty sweet.
First file worked up in C1 DB as well. Just editing for color, contrast, etc...

Shelby, both great portraits -- and your daughter is definitely a carbon copy of her mother's image! (Probably a great thing for her too! )
Just want to comment on the RZ: had one several years ago and loved it, especially the way the glass rendered on film. I owned and used nearly every lens ever made for the system except the 110. I have to say it appears every bit as glorious or even more so on digital as the others did on film -- kudos!
Damn! Might have to look for an RZ! Would love another 140mm macro too, one of the best lenses ever.
