    MFD is really underutilized for street and documentary work. From a resent trip to visit family.

    The lighting seems hard for the subject - I have 4 Metz battery flashes, but I would use two of them with diffusers for this shot.

    Well you know.. Some people get upset when you use portable flashes and "serious camera" ) not that it ever stopped me

    Eh? This is clamshell light with two photek umbrellas if it would get any softer subject would be on cottonball i dont like shadowless light - it defeats purpose of photography

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Some shots from a shoot today for a school assignment.

    My kids. In each frame, the shadow content/hardness is supposed to correlate to a specific emotional state (here, how far down the healing path my kids have gone since losing my mom to suicide two years ago)... also the position of the chair is supposed to correlate how "close" I perceive each of the kids still feels to her loss. The were just told to be themselves and we did not speak of my mom at all... these were taken with just them in their normal states.

    Many more frames in the project, but there are is a big mixture of strobe and non-strobe... so there isn't supposed to be a huge amount of continuity as to light source.

    I specifically chose the location as it offered a lot of different looks within a small area... which when working with my kids... makes a big difference

    Aptus II-6, RZ Pro IID with 110/2.8 at various apertures, tethered (my first session tethered... worked flawlessly). Also first session using a Paul Buff Einstein 640 strobe with a Vagabond Mini Lithium... also a flawless combo today (although I'm not thrilled with the build).

    One of the strobe/ambient shots (big silver umbrella)


    Just ambient with silver reflector on fill side


    Strobe/Ambient - softbox


    just ambient... my oldest boy obviously still feels the loss most closely... although he's not sullen like this all the time.


    Cheers,
    Shelby

    Terrific photos - Portrait Nr. 2 is fantastic - really delicate.
    What post-processing do you use for B&W?

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Working for peanuts. All these are from my trip to Tokyo and so far from the same day. The night pano used the DFA 55mm, the rest the A 35mm manual-focus lens. None cropped--I just like the challenge of shooting full-frame, a habit I picked up and never was able to shake. I was just having fun in a city I spent 10 years in. MFD is just so much fun on the street. Hard to believe I am the only one doing it.

    I first went digital when the Kodak Proback 645m came out. That went on the shelf when I picked up a 5d. I pulled the Proback off the shelf the other day to get it ready to sell. this is a shot I did to make sure everything was still functioning.

    Beautiful stuff everyone... and thanks for the kind comments.

    Sergei, lovely lighting. Douglas... I think you should keep that back, lol!

    Here's a quickie set-up shot for the first image (of my youngest son) for those who are interested. The reflector is obviously not doing anything in this image:

    Thanks Sinuhe. This is the first set of images that I've used Nik Silver Efex on... I'm trying the demo and really liking it. There's also a fair amount of hand work as well (dodging, burning, and selective curves work)... but I think Silver Efex does a great job giving me a baseline place to start with for B/W.

    Cheers,
    Shelby

    Ok... now you've gone too far

    Sally is probably in my list of top 3 artist, and one of my main influences to move to a tripod based system for my portrait work. I hope to one day be as artistically "Free" as she seems to be... even within the confines of a slow, grounded camera system.

    FWIW... here's a slideshow of the project for which the images above are intended (they're for a class). A pretty tough semester for me, so this collection is a bit ramshackle, but I can't wait to get back into this project and refine it in the future

    Light and Lens Final Project - Shelby Lewis

    A description of the assignment is here: http://lightandlens.shelbylewis.com/...final-project/

    Re: Fun with MF images

    I had a look at that, it's nice and gentle and has a pace that allows it to breath and lots of the shots are lovely.

    It set me to thinking about what it is about Mann's family shots (from memory) that makes them so unique and I think it is that the photographer is absent from all of them: they never seem posed or set up and they observe very intimately but never enter in to the private world of the child, engaged in whatever make-believe has currently got their imagination. She really is masterful and her black and white treatments are so hard to pin down: dramatic but subtle. She is a very tough act to follow, but I think some of your shots are getting there nicely. The one of the little girl on a chair on the stoop is great but maybe if she had a doll or some such, and was less formally arranged, it might look more intimate. On the other hand it is the formality of that composition that makes that shot so strong.

    Jeesh this is a difficult pursuit!
    Best

    yet... Sally's work always seems to have a connection between viewer and subject. I'm not sure how she pulls it off. I think it's one more reason why the work with her kids seems controversial with some. There is some sort of connection there... but it's more intimate. Like you're actually there (not just seeing it through the photographer's lens), but not actually part of the action... walking a fine line between watched/watcher.

    Her B/W is so complex and full of density... lots of contrast, but such wonderful luminescence in the skin. I guess those huge negs and old lenses will give you that.

    Her wet plate work is just as beautiful. I really want to head towards that subtle "something" in work like hers. Now that I'm finally shooting some more, I'm gonna dive in.

    Anywho, getting OT.

    Great talk... I guess it's back to images!

    One of the first from my new ( used) 80mm Mamiya macro .... p30+

    Just got around to shooting a few test photos to make sure all was working well, and it seems to be ....

    AFD-II body, hand held, single small strobe, white shoot through umbrella, did not tether, but as I start to do a bit more serious macro work, I will be tethering, DOF is a bit thin!

    Now that I know it works, Wife will not let me play with new toy until after Santa delivers.
