    Re: Fun with MF images

    I love these warm toned images of Jack's taken with the 65+. I just returned from Bosque del Apache where I took a lot of color images with my 65+...and since I did literally everything handheld, I made use of sensor plus at iso 400 with really wonderful results. I also shot at non sensor plus when conditions were a bit brighter at iso 100 - 200. Here are some examples of my color shots. I always like seeing a lot of delicate detail! eleanor (ps--don't know why these images don't come up in the message)

    Very nice Eleanor! I love the range of warm hues.

    it's a combination of the lens used (zeiss 110/2 wide open.. so very shallow DOF) and the b/w toning used (custom tone curve with Nik silver efex)

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Eleanor,

    I love both of these!! I've always been a fan of 'chaos' (not just in images either.. just ask Jack), and the ability to find patterns and resonance in that chaos. You've done so with both images

    Don,

    this has been my favorite so far in your Monument Valley series.. this one effectively portrays the agelessness of the area

    nice Jack!

    it's been years, but i'm sure I have an image from that same spot.. i'll try to dig it up

    A new month, and a new theme for the POD (Pic-o-day) series

    February 2010
    I've been living in the Santa Cruz, Ca region for over 20 years now. There have been people I've passed weekly while walking through town, in parks, who I've seen time after time. I don't know them, don't know their story.. but i know their faces. For February, I'll try to meet many of them, learn their stories, and ask to borrow their likeness for record. Their stories will remain mine (... for those in the area, the opportunity is there for you to learn if you wish it), but their likeness will be posted here


    The first shot of the series

    Jim – Thanks I like this one as well.

    I like your new plan for the monthly POD. The first image is great I like the way it shows stories that have been told and those waiting to be. Nice mustache too!

    Okay you’ve got 27 more days of people

    thanks for your comments Don and Jim. Bosque has tons of chaos and I always am challenged to make some organization and sense out of it! Bosque was much much more than I expected....never seen anything like it! eleanor

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Jack when I saw this place my immediate reaction was it had to be done as a color project just because the abundance of reds, rusts, etc. However I really like the images you posted recently of the trees and pond done is monotone warmtone. Makes me wonder if some of the images from Bosque would work processed that way. eleanor

    I also agree that maybe a nice warm hue b&w but then I worry about the loss of all the great colors.

    Don, Tucson is close to Bosque...have you ever photographed there? if you hit the right time of year and the right light the predominance of deep rich rusts is worth the trip.....a grass/marsh version of the Grand Canyon. eleanor

    Thanks Marc, coming from you, that's quite a compliment!

    It's a longer story that you think for that particular image though . The story aside, I am *really* loving the files off this new back. Not sure if it's Dalsa or just me getting better at processing Phase files, but I'm getting phenomenal tonal range, great shadow detail AND all of that while maintaining good highlight tones -- and of course great image detail. All of which combined of course make for great B&W conversions! I'm very happy with the upgrade for sure

    My opinion is most of the very good color images are close to a color monotone anyway, as are these wonderful shots of yours. Those color transitions should translate to B&W gradations I would think quite nicely.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Jack I'm finding that the red spectrum seems to be rendered differently in the Dalse chip (of course this may be the profile). I was please with the rendering of the predominance of red hues at Bosque with my 65+. They came out very rich. eleanor

    Jim, was that from when we were there before the Gladding McBean shoot, and is that a Betterlight scan?

    Okay, makes sense --- I wasn't sure of which camera, because back then you and I had Canons with TSE lenses, 4x5 and 8x10 view cameras and you had the Betterlight scanning back -- and IIRC, we each had ALL of those in the car with us!

    Re: Fun with MF images

    OK I was so taken by the monotone interperation of Jacks last images that I tried a similar approach on my Bosque work. Think I still prefer the color in this particular series (65+)...eleanor

    Speaking for myself only, I prefer the warm monochrome renditions. Color is also very nice, but has a very different feel, and as such both are certainly viable for these images, but I guess I have a thing for monochrome when there is such an abundance of shapes, texture and tone...

    I agree with Jack. The monochrome versions are my favorite

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Hmmm, two interesting takes on this series. I'll have to print some of the warm toned monotoned images out and see what I think. The reds in the original scenes was just so dramatic! BTW, I've started printing through Lightroom 3 beta and Advanced B&W and get wonderful warm tones. I now prefer Lightroom ABW printing over Imageprint. Eleanor

    I go away for a short time and so many amazing photographs get posted!!! There's a lot of great work here.

    Here is one from my recent trip to Lake Erie, H3DII39, 35mm, f16 at 1/4 sec:



    And of course I met a few more ice fishermen!

    Derek,

    This is a stunning image, I'm glad you didn't get carried away with the color.

    Can I be naughty and ask what you're doing with the processing Jim? That look is incredible...

    Not that the look is anything without your vision, love the portraits Jim.

    Woody – Beautiful stunning image. WOW!

    Jim – February’s POD’s are getting better with each passing day. Not sure which I like more the mechanic/engineer or fisherman mark. Each has it’s own unique qualities and tones. Lovely.

    Woody, I saw this on your blog feed and liked it there. It is a wonderful image, the mood is very moody yet peaceful. Nice work.

    Jim I agree with Don on your POD. Great stuff, I tried finding a blog feed on your site. Are these POD blogged somewhere?

    Thanks Ben! I actually do very little in processing. I use Nik Silver Efex for the conversion.. I have 2 custom tone curves I use depending on the mood of the image. For portraits, I typically choose Red filter and modify the intensity of that filtration to suit the image.. I have a slight amount of Tri-x grain that I add in all of the images (I started with the Tri-x film definition, and used that as my initial base for the tone curves). Most of the image is due to a combination of lens (Zeiss 110/2, always shot wide open for this series), and the light (always overcast or shaded)

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Thanks to all who have taken the time to comment - its really helpful.

    Both of the threads of Jim's work strike me as very powerful, and I add my voice to the praise of Derek's frozen lake.

    Here's yesterday's post"
