    Re: Fun with MF images

    My Father died in May 1940, at age 29. I was three. He was an electrical engineer, and raised on Long Beach Island, NJ, and a nationally known fine art photographer, having been published in national magazines. His negatives were lost for 72 years and recently found and returned to me. I just started going through them. I scanned the negative on a high end, high resolution film scanner, and I interpreted the negative in the spirit and style of Alexander Gurtcheff. Hope you like it
    NOTE: The camera was I Zeiss Super Ikonta A with Tessar lens, which my Mother saved for me.

    This is a great story! Wonderful pictures too.

    May I ask the permission to re-post these in a Chinese photography site (www.xitek.com)? Of course I will do the translation. It is the largest online community of photography in China. And I am a frequent contributor and a moderator there.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I did not use the Flextight 646 for 5 years! Tonight, I just wanted to see whether the scanner still works.
    After experimenting with digital cameras for several years, I may go back to my root again.
    This photo proves to me that the "Velvia" is always "Velvia", nothing can replace. It may have grain, odd
    colors and may not as sharp but it is "classy".

    Terrific Images Dave! He certainly had a photographic eye for shapes and tectures as well as composition. I especially love the the firsta nd last of the four posted images (the sand around the wooden piers and the rope and chain image). What an exceptional gift it must be for you to be able to view these images. I have a few random pictures from my own dad and I cherish them. Thanks for sharing these with us.

    Great story Dave. Interesting aspect of film: you have the film your father loaded (and developed?). It was there when he took the shot and saw the same light he did. That's an emotional and physical connection that a digital file could never carry.

    Yes, my Father had a darkroom and processed and printed all his negatives. I inherited his Omega Super B enlarger, which I used when I built my darkroom.
    Yes, looking at his negatives gives me a rush.

    Good work! Especially with a manual focus 600mm lens on medium format. Tripod?

    This lens is really extraordinary, I bought it used for my S2 system and it performs superb too. Unfortunatelly I have maybe a defective H adapter as AF stopped working several times so I will be sending the lens and the adapter to Solms... MF is usable but adapter should work with AF all the time.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Four more from my father's negatives which were lost for 72 years. I hope you guys are not getting tired of my posting these...I cannot keep my hands off of them. All with Zeiss Super Ikonta "A" with uncoated Tessar lens. The vertical shot of the dunes is fresh snow. When enlarged, the dune grass sparkles with snow drops.
    Thanks for looking and the kind words regarding my Dad's work.

    HI Dave,

    I've translated all your posts (followed your original order) and re-post all the pictures in the said Chinese website. A lot of people really enjoy the pictures and the story. As of I'm writing, there are already close to 1000 views.

    Here is the URL:

    Personally, I myself love these pictures from 70+ years ago. I hope you can continue to scan and post more pictures. The more, the better! After all, there are 250 rolls of negatives, right? I will keep updating the Chinese version as well.

    A big thank you from
