    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    [QUOTE=foto-z;126016]Still deciding between this and another version...

    Graham... love the lighting on her, but the people in the foreground, IMVHO, just kill this one. They look 'shopped into the photograph (and not well). If they aren't, it looks like some strange dodging and burning is going on that adds a "fakeness" to the shot. They look strangely out of scale as well... but lens choice could cause that i guess.

    Beautiful girl, great capture of her. Just don't care for the audience.

    I'm with guy on the feet

    @Graham,
    Very nice.
    Would have loved to see it without a public but I know the limitations.
    On the other hand the public also enhances the shot.

    @David,
    It's only a 2 minute walk from our studio, and we can sometimes shoot there with a group

    Dragonfly

    I was chasing this thing around for perhaps 15 minutes, starting far away, going closer, going closer, shooting at ISO 200 to get a shutter speed high enough for handheld, because it would move too often for a tripod. I took perhaps 30-35 shots, and in the end 5 were decent, only 2-3 actually sharp, and none really breathtakingly sharp. Still, I like this shot a lot.

    Contax 645 AF, 120mm f/4 Macro, Sinar eMotion 54 LV.

    Carsten, I can relate. I have a set of butterfly images, not because I like to photograph butterflies, but because I tried to shoot one in my backyard and found myself chasing it around like a five-year-old. I ended up with a few decent shots and thought "there ought to be a set of these if there's to be any purpose in this"... I then ended up running around like a five-year-old in more than one country. Gad! What a dork. (And I've done a bit of it with dragonflies as well.) All of this was with a DSLR not a MF rig. Now I'm redesigning my site and there's actually to be a butterfly set. Sheesh.

    Keep it up.

    Frank, great dramatic lighting, as usual from you.

    I don't post in this section very often, but I've very proud of these shots.

    They are from the bodyscape series that I've reopened. I'm trying to decide which ones to add to my collection so I can get a book out to the gallery that carries two of these. I have a social selection web-page with all 17 candidates if anyone wants to chime in there with their opinion.

    Phase One backs (30+ and 45+) on H bodies and Phase One Bodies. Generally the 120mm macro lens with each with some use of the wider lenses. Processing in C1, final retouching in Photoshop.

    Great shots Doug!

    Here are a few (I'll post more later) from a quick, impromptu shoot at an abandoned house. These first few are mostly texture shots. They are moody, and might look a little dark at these smaller sizes.

    I agree... candidate 14 is beautiful. You'd swear it was a landscape in and of itself. Love the lighting.

    Cold studio, huh?

    I thought i was the only one that still shot with the 55-110 alongside the 75-150!
    I just got the 75-150mm for my trip to Alaska on Friday. I haven't had the heart to break out the 55-110mm on the P65+. It is my favorite Mamiya lens but I have been using the cambo most of the time.

    I am testing all my glass to see how things hold up to 60MP but I have been flat out the last couple of weeks.

    Anyone use the 55-110mm with the P65+?

    Not much for the smoke but the third one is great, especially with the snoot light on the background. (or whatever you used). Perfect skin tone for that image too.

    I printed it 12x36, matted and framed to about 45". I probably won't sell it much bigger than that since it is a single P30+ image cropped to pano.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    not a typical tech camera subject - nice light in the garden yesterday and I felt to play around with the arTec at smaller distances and somewhat shallow DOF. Focusing works quite good. I think one thing to keep in mind when deciding between Schneider and Rodenstock lenses is also if one wants shallow DOF here and then plus if one focuses with a groundglass the faster lens and without need for center filter helps for a bright image on the groundglass.

    I really like the first picture of your niece but the second shot has really funky green colors and the skin looks awful. What's up?

    The rest I can't show or I would have to take you out. Not in final form yet but close

    Steak it is Carsten . I was trying to give it a little drama for a boring subject.

    Nice mood, Justin.

    Just having fun with my new 110mm f2 lens here. Long exposures using ambient light.

    Another from Georgian Bay, using the 28 mm and Helicon Focus. The little jpeg won't show the lovely detail of the lichen but it's quite impressive in print.

    Unfortunately I had to settle for the very flat light as there were too many trees around to wait for the sun to lower.

    Ya just have to love the Racetrack at Death Valley. I think I took that very same rock a couple years ago and it doesn't look like it's moved too much. The Racetrack should be on everyone's schedule if going to Death Valley - just beware of the road lading out to it...
