That was not a modest statement but the truth some are born with a eye for composition without thinking about it and some folks are not but it can be learned and taught. That is mostly what I try to do on the workshops is get folks to see and Jack compliments that on how to get there. In all honesty we are a great tag team. We both have our strengths and our weaknesses but together we do real well. That was not a ad either. LOL
    I understand fully. There's aspects that we often take for granted that have to be "learned" where we find it second nature.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    In all honesty one reason Jack and I started this forum was so folks can post images and learn from others . Reason why we encourage to have folks post images and pretty much why it is setup like it is with the gallery and have folks post in the threads which some forums do not do that as much. I think it is a better learning experience to see images and learn from them. And the big bonus is we have some serious talent here with any format.

    Don,

    The one-eye is a good trick. I show my cardboard cutout for framing which accomplishes the same thing as closing one eye, but adds a frame so you can estimate focal length. I also then usually show my compositions on the LCD review -- it's already 2-D and pretty much everybody can see it

    On the flip side, it's pretty interesting as to how few folks actually want to listen to us when we're in the field -- most of them are off doing their own thing! I walk around and ask as well as offer suggestions, but here is where Guy is more forceful -- he will literally drag them by their sleeve to get them to look through his camera -- serious!

    Thanks. The 1Ds3 died on Friday (ERR99 crap), so the ZD was a reluctant second choice. Fortunately RAW Developer's hot pixel noise suppression cleaned them up.

    Nicely done, John. The lighted buildings provide perspective and a visual anchor.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Hello, this my first editing with LightRoom : from the card into the computer, then loaded in LR. Playing with LR and with Photoshop (almost nothing, just resizing).

    I must say, in this case, Phocus (which is soooooooo slowwwwww) was out of the game. For serious work, I'll use Phocus, but now my workflow has changed : I'll review my photo with LR.

    Thought I would post this since I don't own this lens and got a chance to use it the Mamiya 70-150 f4 D lens shot at 9.5 here at 125mm. Pretty darn nice lens , held the backlight real well

    Moment here to ponder looking at these two images about how virgin the land is and if it was 100 years ago and if you where a Native American Indian this was your view everyday. Unspoiled by man. Hmmm maybe tonight's dream, if I'm lucky.

    Something different. Taken yesterday in Colorado with an H2 with 50mm HC lens and HTS 1.5 with P45+ back. Focusing with the HTS definitely has a learning curve but I'm slowly getting the hang of it. Eleanor

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Finally got around to processing the few images I took with the 503CWD on a recent trip to Dawson City, YT. This image was actually taken in Alaska however. Chugach Mountains and the Matanuska River. 503CWD and the 40mm CFE IF lens. I took an identical image with my Canon 5D and the 24-105 f4 L lens. Could be my imagination, but I think the Hassie image is much better.

    Converted from 3FR to DNG (with DNG Converter v5.4) and light processing in CS3. For the straight forward processing I typically do, it's nice to skip the whole Flexcolor/Phocus conversion to DNG step now.

    P.S. Imagine what this view looks like in Sept/Oct when all the birch trees here are golden yellow, the spruces are dark green and there's most likely snow on the mountains. One of my very favorite places for a drive/photo outing during the Fall.

    Once again, I have found that there are not enough photos of dead fish in this thread.
    Solution:



    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!

    Bill,

    Thanks for the note. I often wish I was living back in Arizona, the land of the stunningly beautiful and arid landscapes. Have to remember there is beauty in my own back yard.....I just need to get out there and see it more often.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Hahaha, thanks Graham. I was just teasing of course, but for whatever reason I have become pretty interested in the huge racks of drying fish outside town here. It is a really weird experience being out there, and I keep trying to find a way to convey that feeling.

    There was something that was bugging me though...where did you shoot your image? I don't think there are many landscapes like that in Estonia...was it a composite? If so, you are really getting good at them--I cannot tell at all.

    Kurt -- thanks very much. I am glad you liked them.
    Gary -- Lovely photo. I think I know how you feel -- I lived in Santa Barbara for five years or so, and after awhile I sort of forgot about how beautiful it was there. Every single day was perfect weather, and you were always either a mile from the mountains or a mile from the Pacific...but you take it for granted. I can see it happening a bit to me here too, though I am not there yet. I think it is a fundamentally human response -- we make wherever we are familiar. The challenge is to be able to try to see it again as you did before.

    A couple from Monday

    Both shot at Lambeth Palace after a couple of exploratory visits and some time to set up. Having decided to work only with available light, naturally said light died away as a huge storm went over during the allocated twenty minutes and I was reduced to slow shutter and high ISO and wide aperture and yuk yuk yuk! There are a number of reflectors out of shot in the first shot, a crop from a P45+ frame taken on 80mm D lens on a Gitzo three series with the Cube. ISO 200 F5.6, 1/40th.

    The second shot was handheld at ISO 640 on a Canon 5DII with 24-105L lens at 73mm F4 1/100th.

    Got some tidying up to do but these look like being the final choices. We needed one portrait and one landscape, one formal and one more relaxed, all for press office use.

    Thanks for all the advice people gave me when this project was first floated!

    Every image tells a story but this one is a book. Nice image!

    I was actually testing the site itself. Trying to give some posting options for images
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Tested converting IR to B&W using only C1

    The first image was opened in C1 and 100% processed while the second image was processed using Bridge then onto CS4 to complete the processing.
