    More to share from Monument Valley, all shot this afternoon and with the Cambo RS, P45+. You need to be creative when the sky sucks!

    Clear blue skies... Promising and positive, yet at the same time so frustrating to photographers...

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Woody - The wind was blowing close to if not over 60 when we got there. We're still finding sand in places it shouldn't be in...

    We had to leave Thursday morning however we did wake to clouds and color.



    I'll be joining Ken Doo early next month to shoot Canyon de Chelly.
    Ken says he's going to teach me the fine art of "hit and run" landscape photography. (Don't know if I want him driving)

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Here are two shots of a six-shot series I'm working on. I don't do much commercial photography, but I think these came out damn fine. Each one fits a 6'x12' tradeshow booth panel, so they'll be big. I'm also the designer, hence the copy on it.

    Each one is a 3-5 shot "pano" stitch using my RRS head and 150mm-D on the P30+. Since the panels are much more vertical than the native image size, I wanted to use a multi-shot approach to increase resolution. I wasn't sure how the pano would work out that close, but it's working great. I took a few extra shots of each scene for focus coverage and highlight taming. I'll post the other 4 panels next week.

    Sorry Ed, not copying: this is one I take and re-take with every camera I own since it's very near where I live... this version on P45/Cambo WDS/Schneider 35mm XL @ ISO 50, F16, 1 second, Pod.

    Sooooo similar to yours!

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    My right thumb joint is finally almost normal after months of rehab following surgery. So last night I was practicing shooting with the H3DII-39 handheld. My grandsons were getting bathed which seemed like a good opportunity since they never stay still and would represent a rather difficult subject. The light in the bathroom was low so I supplemented with the tiny built in flash of the Hassy.

    I never expected any to be keepers but this one, converted to black and white in Silver Efex caught my eye. I like it but that is my personal bias. I would welcome your comments and it is O.K. to be very critical. That is the only way I can learn.

    Thanks

    Yes I am very glad I didn't sell the H3DII. It is a wonderful tool. I just bought a 300mm for it which I know will get pretty good use for my landscape work.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Hi Rob - There's a proverbial pile of images to go through from Mexico - a mix from the ZD and M8. I've been procrastinating and have been just dabbling here and there. And yes, dogs went from puppies to dogs in what seemed like minutes.

    The 200mm APO doesn't get much press-time here. It's really an amazing lens on a large sensor (negative). I wasn't so crazy about it on the 1Ds3, but with a larger negative (48x36 sensor) the feel is much different. I've been happy with the 150mm F3.5 AF, but prefer to use the 200mm APO because of its "look".

    this lens sure grows on you.
    (before someone replies that the color's all wrong... it's intended to be this way.. i just live on the opposite end of the saturation slider from most people ..

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Was out shooting in 40mph winds and of course Colorado is brown as toast at this time of year so I thought I would go with black and white conversions from SilverEfex.

    Would appreciate critical feedback. I know the image is not tack sharp as a result of the wind but anything else would be appreciated

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Hi Woody,
    I like the photo, but if you are asking for critiques, I think the photo might have benefited from a different vantage point. Perhaps one where more of the vehicle is visible, as well as the background. As it is framed now, it is kind of hard to figure out what you are looking at, as well as the context in which it is placed. If you had had a higher camera angle, or maybe shot from somewhere further to the left, I think it might have had a clearer subject. At the moment, the vehicle and the tires are kind of competing for the attention in the frame.
    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!
    My lab is here: http://www.customphotolab.is and on facebook

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Woody- I agree with Stuart's comments. Along with changing vantage point, I may have tried moving in closer to the vehicle, or further away to encompass a more "landscape" shot. Right now, it's kind of stuck in a documentary/snapshot/"I didn't want to leave the path" type shot.

    I also wanted to add that the black and white conversion could be a bit better. The darkness of the tires and vehicle is nice, but the entire rest of the frame lacks any contrast. The road in front, the grass and the sky, all become one sorta grey mass (at least at this size). I suspect that the tires and vehicle will be dark no matter what conversion formula you use... see if SilverEfex will give you something with better sky and foreground contrast.

    I'm glad you're out shooting. The wind has been crazy here hasn't it?!

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    O.K.

    Today was much better weather, especially the wind. So I trucked out my Hassy, changed lenses and perspective and came up with one I think worked out pretty well. Still looking for constructive critiques so have at it.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Woody, nice improvement. The foreground is much improved with composition and contrast. I still say the sky could use a little bump in midtone contrast. The position of the vehicle I'm not sure about. There's an awkward balance there. The tires lead nicely to the "main" subject, but they kinda crash into each other; the size of tires in relation to the size of the vehicle make them compete for prominence to me, there is no dynamic balance.

    All boiled down... The fact that the vehicle is place dead center in the frame, implies it's the main subject, but the size and balance in relation to the tires suggests confusion to me.

    My C&C for today.

    PS: Woody, where did you shoot this? I do alot of my shooting up north of Fort Collins hitting the dirt farming roads.

    Woody, now we're talking. Personally, for my taste, I like this version of the image far better than the other two. It's moodier, more complex, less documentary. Nice!

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    So as not to beat a dead horse this will be the last iteration of this image (although I may continue to work on it without posting). Here is added additional structure and grain using Silver Efex and did selective darkening of the sky using conventional burn plus edge burn in Silver Efex to add drama, al la a "Psycho" look. Obviously the darkened area on the right hand side of the image in the sky needs feathering to blend downward into the lighter sky area. Will do that next.

    Still lots of work to do but I feel like I am homing in on it.

    Love any remaining comments. I can only get better

    Justin

    Take Harmony East until you get to the road leading to Timnath. Follow the road out of town and within a mile there will be a dirt road turnoff to the right. Follow this, past the super red barn, and this scene will be on top of the hill past a nice horse ranch. If you can't find it, let me know and I will try to get better directions.

    I finished the file for now with some more work on the clouds and sky which I think are approaching the mood I want for this image. Again C&C are very welcome.

    I'm stuck inside babysitting grandchildren so I played with the AFD III, Macro D/P45+. Not art - just fun!

    First is 3 secs at f32, ISO 100. Second is 1/6 at f8, ISO 400. Natural light from north facing windows.

    A beautiful model and very nice portraits...the light reflection is a little disconcerting as it is so close to the pupil. I have read that most will try to place the catch light in the upper part of the eye away from the pupil as it seems more natural there. I assume that you can do this by redirecting her gaze or raising the light a bit. Others may want to comment.

    Again, beautiful rendition of skin tone contrast and color.

    Thanks, i posted those shots on different forums as well, great that i was looking for color C&C, none talked about the color so i assume it is good enough.
    About lighting, oh, what i can say, i posted many many photos of my daughters and there is always comments about the lighting.
    My daughters will never help me to post and stand for lighting, and i am looking for certain effects but seems people wants me to forget those effects and just lit them fill overall in general.

    Bill, The middle image is not sepia, that was the actual color white balanced with an expo disk.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    I don't usually post images on forums, but you folks are great about sharing your work so I figured I ought to throw a couple in too.

    I haven't been shooting much lately, but this past week we finally got out for some shooting. Skies were mostly featurless, except during early morning, and there was some occasional early morning fog. These are from a couple of different mornings, and for a short time each day the pastels were amazing.

    Haven't worked out the processing, but here are a couple quickies.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Thank you, Bob. Nice of you to say so.

    I've picked up the nickname "Cloud Chaser" (self-described) since it seems that everywhere I go these days I clear the skies out. But on the southern Oregon coast, if you get out before first light, there's liable to be some fog on the beach. Sometimes too much in fact.

    Thanks! Bill.

    The first one looks too harsh now that I see it on-line again. I was preparing it for Hahnemuhle Photo Rag and should have paid closer attention to it before posting.
