    Re: Fun with MF images

    A series of the dive of gannets. Gannets are sea birds with a wing span of around 6 ft.; they soar and hover at 100-150 ft. when hunting fish. They then dive into the water at speeds up to 60 mph. Shots taken at the west coast of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia with a 645D and 600mm lens. It's fascinating to watch these birds spot their prey, enter a dive, adjust the flight path, streamline and then enter the water with a very small cross section producing a very small splash. These are very heavy crops and not all the same bird (obviously at 1 frame/s).

    Welcome, Martien!

    To make your photos appear larger: rather than using attachments, instead use the "insert image" button (the icon that looks like the sun over mountains) and paste in a direct URL link to an externally hosted image. Flickr is fine; I use Imageshack; they're all good.

    Father's 1937 Images

    Two of my Father's images from circa 1937. Both made with Zeiss Super Ikonta "A" which made 645 negatives, 16 per roll of 120 film. I have NOT recovered these two negatives. I was able to use a high res digital camera and high end macro lens and copy a print, with 5 different exposures, blended them with Photomatix Pro, and restored the images. Not as good, for sure, as having original negatives, but I made 11"x14" prints. In one print "The Return" I was able to save the title, hand lettered, and my Father's signature. The other Image "Vigil at Dawn" was perhaps his most famous image, being exhibited in many International Salons, and reproduced full page in "The Camera" magazine Dec 1937 Issue

    Great shot Ray. The sense of movement of the windsurfer and the vastness of the sea just leaps from the image. On the other hand, the DR is terrible, the highlights are blown and the image is likely not very sharp. Just goes to show what's really important.

    Thanks, Tom! Yes, I did let the specular highlights blow at the time of capture, in order to get good tone in the sky and hill at the top. I further squeezed the DR in processing, and converted to B&W, to get that high contrast lithographic look in the sea. Converting to B&W also got rid of the strong colour aliasing in the surf - the photo was actually sharp enough for nasty specular aliasing.

    I suppose long focal lengths are useful as well--probably not ideal with a 28mm lens, not matter how sharp.

    These guys are an an important element in the environment and should respectfully be given their space. All too many people down here in paradise seem to see it as their responsibility to kill anything that is in any inconvenient for them. Leave them alone and they will not harm you.
    I was trying to protect a very large canebrake rattlesnake several ago while he was trying to cross the road near my home and had to fight off one of the locals who wanted to make a belt out of him.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Testing the Schneider LS 240 with 2x converter.

    The setup for these shots were using a Really Right Stuff Ground Pod and Ballhead with a Phase One DF/IQ160 attached. The Schneider LS240 and 2x converter was attached to the camera as well as my new angle finder. The ground pod was resting at it's lowest possible setting. I also used a remote shutter release.

    Just in case you missed it - as soon as the converter is attached to the 240 it becomes a manual focus lens at f/9. I've not shot anything this small before so I thought it'd be a good test of both my skills as well as the camera.

    One final thought - the camera was set up on the floor inside and I was shooting through the patio door. Five captures taken before being startled and leaving the rest are just as sharp as these. No post done other than opening in Capture One Pro before sending to Photoshop CC for cropping and Jpeg conversion.

    I love my job!

    Full frame


    100% crop


    Full frame


    100% crop


    The five images were all taken within the span of 60-seconds.

    The use of the selective DOF works quite well at the size I can see the image.

    I do however find the background, while attractive in it's self a bit of a distraction, I would generally aim for a less busy background and usually I think a darker background for light skinned people is safer than a light background when working out doors.

    I hope this makes sense.

    I agree with Mal, I would add that although his facial expression is relaxed, the body appears tense, ready to spring from the sitting position.

    Thanks, Rob! Your feedback is very welcome...Indeed, I considered that crop as well. In the end, I preferred the sense of place (my place) that came from including the top, over the more abstract cropped composition of the windsurfer "lost" in the endless ocean. But that's a personal thing.

    It's nice to have produced an image that can work well in two different ways, with just a single modification.

    Thanks Malmac and Tsjanic. I appreciate the comments and I do agree that the background looks busy and it detracts from the senior. i guess I am still trying to find my style. I was hoping to bring more of the environment into the photo and try more full length and 3/4 length photos but maybe I am confusing the purpose of a senior portrait. The nice thing about the IQ 160 is that I can crop like crazy and still have a nice size print. Thanks again.

    Another tip - I know little about portrait shooting, but from being the subject of a couple of portrait shoots (our engagement, wedding etc.), what I recall is that the pros were particulary fussy about what you might call "hand neatness" - fingers together and gently tucked inwards towards the palm. They had a particular aversion to any sort of "splayed bunch of bananas" layout of the fingers. Hope that helps.

    Yes, the Massasauga Rattlesnake is a threatened species and is legally protected - at least in theory. There are still a few rednecks who think the only good snake is a dead one, but we're gradually (a) educating the public and (b) conserving the snake's habitat.

    They are quite common where I live and will not attack unless very seriously assaulted. In fact I have lain down very close to them, slowly and quietly, and have photographed them from as little as 50 cms.

    Respect them and they'll respect you!

    Thank you. I definitely need to keep a consistent pattern before i click the shutter so I don't miss things like that.

    Don, nicely done. When the 240 LS was announced, I pointed out that with the 2x TC, at f/9, it would be a challenge to focus: the TC is not AF, and f/9 is beyond the minimum aperture limit of the focus confirmation system for manual focus. But you clearly nailed focus here at f/9, so what's your secret? Special focusing screen, sequential focus bracketing, ...?
