    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Son - Wonderful! And what a nice lesson from you evaluating your work and taking the time to really try to perfect the image to fit your idea.

    Stef - Nice series. Were the panos done by rotating or shifting?

    John - yes, location was on the boardwalk just north of the old fish market for that exposure (if I remember correctly). I walked from Fulton to north of the bridge, then back again and shot some at the seaport. I also shot from the Brooklyn side and on the pedestrian walkway. It is too crowded on the walkway so it is better territory for the M8 than the Phase, especially with a tripod because with all the runners and bikes the wood is constantly bouncing so it is not too stable. I am processing more today so I'll post some later.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Below is another image from the Brooklyn Bridge.
    I shot a whole series of images and have been processing some of them. You can see them here (about 20 images):

    Most are with the Alpa and P20+ and some are with the M8 (sorry no M9!).

    Just for fun - one of the last MF images I took on film before turning (primarily) digital. Velvia 50, if you can't tell!

    Son, I think you nailed it with this last shot. Nice work and your dedication to getting the shot is inspirational.

    Dr. Laurent, beautiful captures, they bring back fond memories.

    Charlie, love the bridge shots and the black and white treatment is perfect I think.

    Bill, wow, just wow.

    David, enjoy seeing you expand your creativity. Nothing run of the mill about these.

    Both panoramas are made by rotation. The color one has been taken handheld, and the BW one on tripod.

    Makes sense...I had difficulty deciding to post as it seemed that the verical lines of the most outside buildings were divergent at top but upon closer inspection the lines throughout are fairly haphazard.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    PS: I just noticed that the attached images look weird after getdip auto-resize (800px wide), such the lines of the body are not stright, which is clearly visible on the legs, please compare to the same images (900px wide) in the getdpi gallery. What to do to the images to improve the lines after auto-resize. Thanks

    Lovely shot, Ed, there's a nice little edge of mystery with the peak being cloud covered.
    Wish I had taken it!

    Thanks Bill. I was thankful to see that much of the peak. The two weeks prior to that shot was overcast down to 100 feet. The next day I had to leave so I squeaked in under the wire.

    Drove the Denali Highway from the park over to Valdez. Got these along with three flat tires!

    More great stuff, Ed! You seemed to be quite high up when taking these...?
    I ask because I use the roof of my truck camper for an extra 12 feet elevation...is that what you're doing?

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    I was standing by the side of the road for both of these. Taken along the Denali Hwy which runs along the south end of the Sitka River Valley. This stretch was elevated for probably 40 miles. I believe the Sitka river and glacier is what you see in the background of the left pano. The view along this road is incredible; you could spend two weeks and still not be ready to move on. At the western end of the highway you can see Mt. McKinley, on the eastern end the peaks of Wrangell NP. Very cool indeed.

    The bright red covering everything is wild blueberries which the grizzlies feed on until snow falls. When you hike you have plenty to eat as well as company to keep you from getting lonely.

    Locals said it colors up like this for about a week each year. Normally I'm not that lucky. This was the first clear air day in about two weeks, obviously it was a good day!

    I'm all over 26 as your best composition. Also love the car in the wedding series and I also like the first one in that series.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Been trying to meet up with the Capture Integration guys FOREVER to test some MF gear... went down to Birmingham, AL for an open house of sorts and FINALLY got to shoot some of the gear I'm interested in.

    Dave Gallagher and Chris Lawrey (sorry not to see you, Steve, after all these years of communication) were fantastically helpful. Meg, the model, was even cool with me using the images of her (that I took) for personal use only, in return for a few files for her portfolio.

    I don't have c1 currently, so I had to do some acrobatics with Raw Developer and Lightroom to process these.

    I'm pretty sure this was with an H1 with the p30+ .. later on I tried the phase body as well (which I liked better)... my first effort using these great cams. Hope to buy real soon.



    and a 100% crop... coming from canon and sony, this is mind-boggling to me:

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Congrats Shelby! You should really try to meet with somebody that has C1 to show what it can do with the color in those files -- fair warning though, if you do that, you will buy C1 Pro!

    PS: did you tell her contact lens wasn't centered?

    yeah... it's killing me having such great files and having to struggle with RAW conversions that supply color that doesn't come anywhere close to what I saw with C1 last night... of course it also could have been that $3K Eizo we were looking at as well.

    Those CI guys are just spoiled!

    Oh... and this is sad... I'm still getting mileage out of a Dual Core G5 PowerMac (which actually works really well with my current low volume workflow)... and it isn't compatible with c1 since I'm on OS X 10.4.11 (which is speedier on my machine than 10.5) Guess I'll add a new computer to the shopping list as well.

    I actually own C1 v4 (non pro), but it won't run on my OS (OS X 10.4.11 ) ... strange, because as a beta it ran fine on my system, and then when it went to official version 4 it stopped working.

    I'm not sure which beauty dish it was, but the light was FAR more nuanced than my Alien Bee dish. I didn't expect that. It was like no matter where it was put, it looked good. I guess it goes to show how sometimes you actually do get what you pay for.

    1. you don't have to buy C1 Pro. If you need it just for the P30+ you can use the DB version. It's free and it's the same as the Pro version but doesn't support DSRLs (but all Phase Backs).

    2. you can download C1 V3.7.8 for your G5 (phseone.com -> capture one -> previous versions).
    you'd have to learn the old interface (that's easy) but you'd have e.g. the color editor as well.

    Bob:

    Right on!!

    Watch the transitions from highlight to shadow though. It's verrrrry easy to let those posterize. In fact, before I began shooting these with a Phase I was not able to avoid it. One of the nice things about that 16bit file is just how smooth you can get tonal transitions even when you push the file around a LOT.

    I really like the way you've incorporated the face without losing the anonymity that I find so appealing about this lighting style.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Don, not much really good fall color in Yellowstone...first of all, aspens are rare in the park and while the grasses and some willows were turning yellow that was about it. A little red here and there in grasses and leaves, but for the most part, what Fall color yellowstone gets, had not peaked yet. Two years ago the last day we were in yellowstone, the reds in the grasses and bushes/willow leaves kicked in big time and the day we were leaving yellowstone 2 years ago, it snowed.

    This year, the weather was very warm in Yellowstone...hitting 78-80 one of the days (we were only there 3 full days). Think Fall was late in coming up there. Fall color is hitting early here in our part of Colorado however. eleanor

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Bob, could you elaborate the lighting setup for that (or at least point me in the right direction?)

    Fantastic shot, BTW.

    I achieved something similar with my dancers, but I had no control over the lighting and would like to recreate it.

    The Ascent of Man (well, of chilli actually....)



    P45+ with Bowens 2 metre wafer as key and small softbox as fill. Phamiya with Extension Tube #1 and 80D lens, F14 ISO 50 1/125th on a Cube with a 'frotto CF pod...

    Oh, and I even grew the chillis!

    One practical note: I learn from this exercise that you can't shoot this combo from overhead without a lot of hassle - gravity causes the lens to fall forward away from focus so you have to use live view and keep your finger on the focus ring throughout...

    Best

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Thanks folks,
    The lighting is ultra simple.
    One light with a small reflector and barn doors set slightly above and to the left raking the subject at a low angle.
    The studio had a black seamless backdrop and the model was on an air-bed that had a dark gray color. Spill on the air-bed was photoshopped to black.
    The shot is almost directly into the light and flare was eliminated with a flag.
    Exposure was set with an incident meter set copy-board style facing the light and opened up a stop.
    As for posterization, I don't see evidence of that actually in the full size image which prints very nicely. It looks just a bit posterized in the posted jpeg, I think, since the mid-tones are actually caused by stippling as the light strikes the slight peach-fuzz and skin texture and the down-res caused some of them to merge.

    Thanks John!
    Here are two versions which one do you folks see more effective in color or black and white?

    I tried that one at one point and though it was promising it didn't quite work for me - even at tiny apertures there's so little DOF that the smallest slip of the focus ring led to disaster, even such as is caused by trying to get a bit of tape on. In the end I had to use my finger, refocus every shot and use a cable release with the other hand to take the shot really quickly.

    The things I'll do for chilli....

    Interesting. Obviously if you're going to be doing a lot of that type shooting, then a bellows you can lock down with an older manual focus lens mounted sounds like the gold-standard solution .

    Or perhaps the S2 lenses won't slip

    I won't be doing much of that but I do have a commission to shoot a series of Stations of the Cross and they will involve a complex rig shooting from above so I will need a practical solution soon.... maybe the S2!

    I asked my dealer for a bid on my entire Phase kit. So far, he has not been very forthcoming!

    I found this old bright yellow truck that, in my vision, had become "part of the landscape". I visualized this as abstract shapes and colors, not so much a vehicle per se. Taken in North Park Colorado and the North Platte River can be seen through the front windshield. Phase 65+, H2, 35mm HC lens hand held. Eleanor
