    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Thanks, Jack.

    Here at couple more, and now I'll quit clogging the board with my spam. I'm just going through these and trying to decide what's what. As you can tell, I flogged Harris Beach a while. And as usual, I managed to chase off most of the clouds.

    Spam??? Not hardly! I like em all -- in total, they'll make a very nice series. Only suggestion I would make is process them all to similar same sand hues or sky blues if possible.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Jack, Thank you for your kind words.

    I'm thinking of a series, and I appreciate your input regarding sand colors. I have a few others as well, and the light really changed the color of the sand as it, the light, warmed up – and of course, each day was a bit different. I shot from first light (really first light, as in over 30 second exposures) to maybe 8:00 a.m. or so. Once I get through the group I'll see what I can do.

    Thanks again!

    Gorgeous shot - light, color, detail. Did you do much PP on the eye white or did your model get a good night's sleep ? ;>

    All the shots are no pp [maybe #1, very minimal] but all the shots the skin is untouched or not retouched at all.

    You have to love MF portraits. 35mm digital just looks so flat compared to these.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Nice shot Graham. The 80mm really is impressive, isn't it? It has a lovely character as well.

    Here is one from a trip I took a few weeks ago out to the east of Iceland. I am still going through the shots...
    This was the Hy6 with 180/2.8 AF and the E54LV

    And here are some seals on an ice floe with the same combo plus the 1.4x TC.

    I waited and waited, but the light just would not come back onto the seals...it was a stubborn cloud. I would have loved to get closer, but as it is, my tripod was in the water and I was standing on a beached iceberg.

    Here are two crops so you can get a closer look at the seals...just because they are cute and all.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    I arrived in Chinle late this afternoon and went to the Canyon right after checking into the Holiday Inn. We've lived in Arizona since 2004 and have taken this route countless times on our way to either Moab or Monument Valley; it's always been on our to do list. The sky is flat however rain is in the forecast for hopeful the sky will get better. I'm meeting Ken Doo tomorrow the Wednesday we head down into the Canyon in my Jeep along with a guide.

    This was taken this afternoon with the Cambo RS/P45+ and 35mm lens. Looks okay however I want better....

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Sadly it takes "foul" weather to get really good shots of Spider Rock. I have been to Canyon de Chelly three times now and have always encountered blue skies and high contrast light. One of my mentors, Alain Briot, lived in Chinle for seven years. He has a photo he took of Spider Rock in snow which is just spectacular. He was working and when the snow came he went up to the Canyon immediately to get the shot. Probably worth getting fired over.

    Hope the rainy or cloudy weather comes for you Don.

    Best

    Dale,

    I really like the beach shots. I think the slight blur of the moving water, in contrast to the sharp sand really works well.

    Best,

    Stuart,

    Iceland obviously offers immense photo opportunity. Your shots and those of Tim can be frustrating to those of us who'd like to fit a trip to Iceland in, but who haven't yet found the time.

    Thanks for letting us travel there virtually via your posts.

    Hi Tom,

    Nice to see your results with the 110/2 and the Metz for fill in ... it's the combination I've been working on over the last week or so. I've been doing a lot of bouncing over my shoulder and off the ceiling in a self-study crash course.

    Hi Kurt,
    even though I have the Rollei SCA adapter I dont use TTL but A Mode and then just dial in some minus exp comp. Seems to work ok. I still like using the SCA-adapter so I dont have to dial in f-stop and ISO to the flash manually.
    next thing I need to try is to fire the fill flash off camera, I allready have the Metz3008 Adapter.

    Thanks for the kind words Dale! If you care to, please try my website for some more images. I find that most of what I shoot does not fit into the categories here, so I don't wind up posting it all the time. I am working on processing some more mf digital shots from my trip out East though, so I will post them when I have them. And please let me know if you do eventually find your way here, I would be happy to meet up and say hello at least.

    By the way, nice shots Tom and Graham! It's nice to see some other Sinar shooters here...

    I really like the Witch's Well. It seems to me many of the photos that are liked the best have an air of mystery or newness.

    I hope you're computer problems are resolved soon.

    Don, lovely shot.

    I hesitate to say this, because there is so much "pop art" HDR stuff out there, and the shot is 99.9% anyway, but I wonder if a three-exposure HDR would have been able to add a little detail in the darkest shadows and brightest highlights?

    Thanks everyone.

    This is a shot of the cave from the outside.



    We were fortunate to have a guide that wanted to share these locations with us including the slot canyon below. My images were shot with a P45+ and either my Cambo RS1000 or Phase AFD. Ken was able to shoot the slot canyon this morning with a P65 before he had to leave and go home.



    There's clouds in the sky so gotta run and get ready for a sunset...

    Glad you and Ken had a good guide. Looks like you guys got some great shots! I can't wait to see your "how ya did it" shot later.

    PS. Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter!

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    I thought I'd try something a little bit different after I recently picked up a manual focus 35mm Mamiya lens.

    One of the cameras that I always enjoyed shooting with was the Hasselblad X-Pan because of the extended frame size ... it allowed me peer in on a variety of interactions going on at one time to build a story.

    I found that the 35mm works well for me allowing me to maximize depth of field and become more involved in the scene. I can then slice off the top and bottom and use the resolution of the P45+ back to see what's going on in an enlarged frame.

    You can call it an experiment, digital stitching without the stitching or nothing more than an image with top and bottom cut off ... but it's amusing to me.

    I've attached a couple of examples while I was walking around the parking lot at Miller Park before the Brewers home opener against the Cubs.

    Kurt, it's a very pleasing format for this kind of image.

    Here was one with the Hasselblad 110mm ... this guy didn't quite make it in for the opening pitch. The PhaseOne body and Hasselblad lens are a little larger and heavier than walking around with an M8, though.

    Thanks, Graham. Blown up large there's a voyeuristic appeal to see what's going in each part of the frame. For instance, a lady in the first shot seemed to be engaged in a rather heated phone conversation.
