    Thanks Bob..

    The images from yesterday and today were all shot with the 35mm. I also have a 72mm and tried it when I first got here but found the 35 to be better suited for what I was after.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Here's a 30 minute capture off the Phase P45+ taken from the balcony of my hotel room in Monument Valley tonight. Only light is the less than quarter moon that is casting the shadows as it sets, and the starlight. Obviously there were a few cars that went in and out on the dirt road, and you can see there is still a bit of snow hanging on in some of the protected canyons. A little quirky for a landscape, but was fun to do it! 35mm lens, 30 minutes @ f5.6, ISO 100:



    Cheers,

    Thanks for the kind words Jack

    I like the star trails landscape especially the road! I think the combination of the headlights and taillights add something not something you see all the time.

    Are you guys staying up at Gouldings or did they finish the hotel closer to the visitor’s center? Sandy & I are headed there in March.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Well I have been very busy at work but had a chance to play with my Hensel monolights this weekend. Here is one shot I liked. I still do not know what i am doing. Anyway, if you have any comments or critiques you cannot hurt my feelings. This was taken with H3DII-31 and 80mm lens. handheld. I believe 1/180 f11. I had two lights. One from the left with a Photek softlighter 36" and a light from the right with a grid and barndoor. I have a few others that I like as well but have to go through them all.

    Yes, I particularly like the first one. I think we often forget that photography is as much about shadow as it is about light.

    No trade secrets, but the whole point of the image is that it has a sense of mystery.

    I love that first shot, Mark. Without the scissors, it would look even more painterly.

    How do you like your Hensels? I have looked around at various systems, and find the Hensels a rather attractive combination of quality and price, but have not bought into them yet.

    We just spent a week in the Alps in cold (down to -20 Celsius) but beautiful weather and even for that region with a lot of snow.
    Whoever likes XC-Skiing (or downhill) this area is a dream.
    Here is a 3 shot Panorama showing Morteratsch Glacier:


    and here a (I think) 6 shot Pano Showing mount Corvatsch (and some others) I felt free to include myself in the image :

    Generally still life's are not my thing but i must say I love this shot. Great lighting producing a strong sense of mystery about it. End result is a shot which looks like a painting instead of a photograph. Just love it

    Thanks all for the comments on the tulips. I have not really done much in terms of still life but it is fun and frustrating. I have to admit, the lighting part is much more difficult than I ever imagined. But being digital easier and fun to experiment.

    This technically doesn't count as a panorama although I did use the same techniques to obtain it.



    3-shot image done on a vertical plane, using my Cambo RS1000, P45+ and 35mm lens f/8 at 1/2 second. After cropping out an unwanted area the finished image is 9619x8417.

    50 balmy degrees today ... which means quite a few people spent quite a large amount of time outdoors today.

    Harris Beach State Park, Brookings OR. Phase AFD, P45+ and 28mm lens. I decided to crop much of the sky out to give this look. I was about 4' off the ground standing ankle deep in water. This prints at 15x30 or much larger.

    Just worked this image up this morning. I could have really used a wider lens than the 35mm however with the movements of the Cambo I was able to compensate. Total of 9 images, 3 rows by 3 columns native size turned out to be 10012x7504. (Cambo RS 1000, P45+, 35mm lens, F/8 at 1 sec ISO 50)

    these have been some of the best b/w images i've seen since your Betterlight days.. I'd stick with this setup.. it seems to fit your style of shooting

Hopefully Doug can show me how to do that in C1 when we get to Moab

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Thanks Jim , love that 80 1.9 shot of yours nice movement going on. I agree on Jack's setup , he seems most comfortable with the MF systems. His images have improved creatively using it. Sometimes a system can slow your creative juices. Jacks picked up , I'm still on the fence. I love MF no question. But I like diving in the dirt sometimes too if you know what I mean. I think I am more at a burn out stage again than anything else. Been through several of these through the years, not the gear just my head (mid-life) and or combination of health the last couple months.

    This past Sunday, I developed my first film in probably ten years. Hasselblad 2000FC/M, 110/2 wide open at the near limit, Tri-X, D-76, placed in a protective plastic sheet and scanned at 600 dpi on my 99 Euro dirty office fax/printer/copier/scanner device. Noise, dust, scattering from the plastic, it all adds to the look
