It's a tough job sometimes... (both shot using 150mm f4 PQS lens)
If only my model looked like yours Graham...
Kodak 645C/Contax 645/Contax 120mm
David and Graham,
I like them all! Awesome make up Graham. David, if your model had a smoldering cigarette in her hand, shots #2 and #3 would be perfect "film noir" fodder
Graham, to be honest, I think the second model looks like a piece of plastic
David, awesome, the eyes are stunning!
Here is my recent image, Contax 645 with 45-90mm and Leaf 65.
I shot this at birthday, with a Nikon 800 flash mounted on the camera, then converted to B&W in PS4 to add a mood.
I celebrate your work. It is really good.I need some info on the 54LV back. You seem to be well versed on Sinar backs.
Do you encounter moire often on fabrics with this back? If so, how do you deal with it?
Is the Live View feature done in the back or you need to be tethered to a computer?
In your opinion, how well it would work with a 500CM?
Have you used your back with movements? Color casts?
Since this back has inexpensive adapters for different platforms, I'm considering it to fit my Hasselblad for the time being. Later on, I would add a Hy6 with one lens and so on. Step by step. I love the skin color in your photographs.
Thanks in advance Graham for your time.
Thank you Jack and Evegeny!
Evegeny, Nice conversion. I tried shooting my daughter's birthday with the same lens/camera/Leaf and a side mounted flash, I found the combo way too heavy and unbalanced for any serious shooting in fast moving environment like a party, how was your experience?
I think zoom lens is very useful for events when situations change quickly and no time allowed to change focal lengths. In studio I use it on a tripod.
Took this in Canyon lands National Park, Moab the day after I went to False Kiva which is very close by.
Mamiya AFDII P30+ 28mm lens. Opened in C1 4.8 then finished the processing in CS4 this morning.
Found out that I should have my new lens for the Cambo RS1000 by the end of next week. Thank-you Chris!!!!!
Don, nice image, but I find the halo at the horizon bothersome. Just my $0.02.
These were shot on the same day at the Winter Wheat images I posted a few days ago.
Industrial Observations Within the Western Landscape, a new series I've been working on. A new style for me, both in subject and processing. Let me know what you think.
And the last three...
I really like this series! Nice mood, interesting processing.
Nice vistas and great moody finishing Justin.
The Canyon Lands and Moab are among my favorite biking and hiking spots Don, the rust color is the way I feel about them too.
beautiful portraits graham, don't see any color issues here!
Which version of CS are you running? If CS4, I'll send you a copy of my 900 pixel web-creation action to try...
You've got mail Give it a try and let me know if it helps on web output. Take the full sized, fully CS4 processed tiff file BEFORE the extra web adjustments you had to make, then run that action and check it.
Believe it or not, just had another visitor with freckles. She asked "when are you going to photograph me?"

You really seem to like (IIRC) that 180/4 + tube. It sure seems to produce. If you get a spare bored second, would be great to see/here about it.
Really nice look on that second one, Graham. Almost Leica M-like in its intimacy. The first ones I find less intimate but more stylish, also very nice.
Well, after all these truly outstanding portraits, here's a Kodachrome moment taken from my house 15 minutes ago! P45+ and 28 mm.

Yo David - fascinating perspective!
That is a beauty. You keep showing these great sharp images from the 28mm and soon I'll have to go rob a bank.
Hello everybody !
Here 2 shots mixed with CS3 to get the maximum depth of field.
H3DII 31 shot with a tripod
Very beautiful portraits !
jerome, very nice composition and processing on the flower!
I think I finally have a colour version I prefer to the b&w version. Your thoughts?
Graham, sorry. Not in my opinion. B&W is better
The success of your first freckled portrait was its natural look, maybe if you did the same here...

I happen to like both the color and B&W equally, but agree they have a very different "feeling." My only nit is in the color version, the bright white RH side is more distracting...
Thanks to Chris my 24 and 120 lens were both delivered yesterday
This is the result of the initial testing of the 24 w/center filter. Opened first in C1 then finished in CS4.
I hope to post examples of the 24 vs. 35 vs. 72 vs. 120 lens shortly.
