    Very Foxy!
    I must be a real chicken since it has never occurred to me to shoot wildlife with MF.

    Derek - Stunning!

    I've attempted wildlife while I was shooting with my Mamiya/Phase 645 gear with dismal results thus the reason I kept my 1DsII.

    Bob and Don,

    Thanks. I was at the shore to shoot the surf at sunset and a pair of foxes appeared. Ordinarily I too would not have bothered, but they were extremely close.

    The 300mm plus 1.7x gives me 500mm; it's manual focus, so most of my other shots have a slight blur. I didn't extend the tripod and I was on my knees, at their level.

    Kind regards,
    Derek

    I commend you too! I have a 400/2.8 for my Canon and what I would typically grab for wildlife. However, the thought of MF detail is intriguing -- and Mamiya did make a manual focus 500mm that was supposedly quite good...

    Here are a couple I thought I'd share from a shoot I had 2 weeks ago. All shot with P-AFDIII / P45+ with a mix of 45mm AF & 80mm AFD. I utilized Elinchrom lighting, pre-styled in C1 and post in CS4.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks Jack. Same here, I have the Canon 400/5.6 L and that's what I would ordinarily use for this. But since switching to MF in 2005 I haven't touched my Canon gear. The HC1.7x is tack sharp, fantastic piece of glass. Be well.

    Kind regards,
    Derek

    Jim, which camera do you mount those lenses on? I ask, owning the same two lenses, and the 250/4 is on the way. They will start on my Contax, but I might move to a 203FE or 205FCC later, depending on which system I prefer... I love the atmosphere in those shots, especially the first one. Lovely rendering.

    Beautiful shots Jim. And it definitely forwards the argument that there should be a full-sized square digital sensor some day!

    I shoot with a Mamiya 645 AFDII, and the Mamiya/Hassey converter. I've been shooting with a square overlay on the leaf, as well as a corresponding square outline on the viewfinder.. playing around a bit with the square format (and liking it)

    I also have a Hasselblad 2000 fc/w that i put them on with film

    Well here is something from me. I finally had some time to edit at least one image. Still most off the stuff I shot in the last 5 months will have to wait until I am back home.

    Some great work being shown. Alright let me change it up again from the nature, architectural and landscape theme... (we'll this could be thought of as nature as well..lol).

    Here are 2 shots from 2 recent personal projects. The first is from an editorial "Desperate Housewife" and the other is from a themed shoot "30's Fashion". The DH one was shot with 26" beauty dish + elinchrom ranger camera left; the 30's fashion was shot with Kino's as the main and kicker, with 4 tungsten lights playing the accent roles to add some drama.

    Of course all with the Phase AFDIII / P45+, tethered in C1 and CS4 afterwards. Lenses were 80mm in the first shot and the 105-210 ULD in the second.

    Enjoy!

    I wanted to try working in C1 5 a little more before I headed back to the South Rim and picked this image. This was taken with my WRS1000, P45+ and 120mm lens. Opened first in C1 5 then over to CS4 to merge into a pano.

    Perfect Christmas card Woody. Where is that ... is that where you live?

    I use that combo all the time ... pretty good IQ for using an extender.

    Actually better than pretty good - I'm tough on image quality and the Hasselblad tele extender is a positive surprise every time I use it. As I consider alterntatives for the next generation of MF in my life, the tele extender is one of the things that weighs in favor of continuing with Hasselblad.

    Jim - sensationally evocative work. I prefer the grayscale versions - they are a little more abstract and emphasize the dream-like qualities of the images.

    This needs more work however I wanted to show this one as a work in progress. We had great skies and clouds earlier this week. This is from Moran Point, South Rim Grand Canyon.

    Thanks Woody:

    A bit of a fabrication on my part. Fact is it wasn't even an intended image, just a happy accident. It was taken when we were setting the cameras and lights for the studio session of our S2 review. (That is the dark-haired model, Denise, from the S2 test just prior to make-up.) We had the the strobes on, so just the modeling lamps -- which are tungsten until they pop. I was getting the camera set up and the radio slave didn't fire because my shutter speed was too high. So this is basically a frame shot under weak lights at ISO 100, 1/250th at f11.

    The frame is virtually all black in C1's browser, but I could see just the highlights on her face so I took a shot at processing it. I had to boost exposure all the way right which in C1 is 2.5 stops. Not enough, so I literally dragged the RH 255 side of the levels slider down to the hottest R channel, which was around 100(!). Backed that off just a tad to keep the hair just barely separated from the background for the Rembrandt look. Now of course this much file pushing makes for a noisy image (massive understatement) so I had to apply NR. So now I'm stuck with this grainy, soft image but am surprised at how much it resembles a pinhole shot -- and the fact it looks kind of cool. So I adjusted WB which just looked plain with neutral skintones, but took on the candlelight look at around 9500K. Thinking it wasn't too bad, I finished it off with some saturation, shadow and highlight tweaking to balance it out, then added a 1.5 stop vignette. Voila, this was the result. But honestly, I think it is pretty cool and may try to replicate it in the future.

    Full irony is I do have a body cap modified for a pinhole, and it was in my bag

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Nice Jim! Here's one of SF... 55AF and a pretty long exposure with the ZD back (~10 sec).
