Very realistic rendition. Nice.
Very realistic rendition. Nice.
My daughter and grand-baby are visiting, so her friends visit too.
This is sort of my first try shooting mother and child stuff.
Like they say... small children and animals...

Not a very good year...

David that is priceless, I hope they appreciate your droll sense of humor.
From a few hours ago. Rollei 6008AF, Sinar e54LV, first shot is 80mm f2.8 PQS lens at f4, others are 150mm PQS at f5.6, f8.
Bob, lighting looks pretty good to me right now. Maybe you should be an instructor
Graham, like what you're doing with these models, especially like those 150mm closeups.
Don, that IR conversion is amazing. Great landscape shots.
Graham, thanks for posting these. I love your model shots. I think your lighting and composition is excellent. It is one thing to just photograph a pretty model -- you really portray them superbly. It takes a lot of skill. Keep posting the shots from the 54LV, I am still hoping that the deal I am waiting for will come through so I can join you with it!
Bob: Nice job on the lighting!
Graham: Awesome poses and set, perfectly executed -- nothing more to say
"Perfection is not attainable. But if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence."
Thanks, Jack, I think I prefer this one to the similar shot already shown. Still deciding
I prefer the just posted version too.
Nice ankh BTW.

Graham, shots like that could do wonders for Estonian tourism ...
Driving home this evening and the sky started to get interesting. Pulled into a nearby community (after hours, the gates were closed) and snapped this one.
Lovely composition David. The two lights really pull things together for me.
Oh oh-- I see three lights! (Where are my meds??)
I was talking about the two lights on the left. Had there been only the one light flanking the gate the composition would have suffered imho.
Hi folks. Thought I would post this. The gig i just did in NY we did a group shot on stage of all the staff including me. I had a NY fashion shooter actually knock this out after I set it up. P25 plus back at ISO 800 with 55mm mamiya lens. Not to shabby, I had to keep the folks tight because the stage lighting was falling off pretty bad at the sides
shot it the other night
Love this image Irakley! So much to ponder
LOL Yes down on one knee . Last time I was on one knee I wound up getting married. Not doing that anymore. LOL
Irakly, as always superb!
I can finally post an image that I actually took with a MF digital back.
My 503CWD arrived on Wednesday and I took this image today. Still have alot to learn about using the camera, CFV back, Flexcolor.....ok, just about everything....but here goes.
You'd think that living in Alaska I could find subjects that were a bit more "scenic" than this one.

I take shots like that too, whenever I see them. Something appeals to me about the subject matter. Good luck with the new kit and look forward to more images. BTW, I prefer the color version.
Playing around with my pano head yesterday. Took this from Hobe Mountain observatory in Hobe Sound, Florida. This may be the highest point in South Florida but, at an elevation of 86' I think they should have named it Hobe Hill. These obviously don't show up that well on the web but the original looks pretty good. While processing these I decided to see what CS3's Photomerge was capable of. Pointed it at 15 captures (not this image) and let it do it's thing. Took about 20 mins on my machine but it did generate a 1.5GB merged file... pretty impressive I think.

View of a Bare Bulb you don't normally see

I cant see any scratches Marc -
Nice Pano work there David!
Irakly... too funny, Marc it's a great shot. Did you shoot tethered thru Phocus to capture it.
That flash tube is lit right? If so, how did you get it so that it did not overexpose and overwhelm the rest of the scene? Or is that just the modeling light...
The Sunpak 120 J doesn't have a modeling light Stuart. So, yes, this is a shot of the Bare Bulb firing.
ISO 50, stop down the lens, set the 120J flash on M, dial it to 1/16th power and sync it with a Pocket Wizard ... provide fill balance with strobe from a Profoto D4.
I kept that 120J Bare Bulb unit around because it's so useful in small places without cords running to it ... for that kind of application I use a Wein optical slave and manually dial the flash to any level from full down to 1/16th power.
Sounds like a cheap alternative to something like the Profoto stick light... I'm thinking this could come in pretty handy shooting interiors.
Marc, I've got a Profoto stick light too... picked it up as part of a kit I was buying and figured I'd find some use for it. I think I've used it twice in two years... inside a refrigerator and lighting up a dark interior corner. Curious what real world situations you use it for.
Another pic from the 503CWD-II with 50mm CFi Distagon. Ship Creek tugs and barges. I'm really happy with the quality of the images....the full resolution images are just amazing to me. This is obviously a crop of a section of the image (and then downsized). I was several hundred yards away from the tugs.
By the way....the previous images were of a Nodwell vehicle....used quite often in years past by Western Geophysical and other companies here in Alaska for oil exploration activities on the North Slope. Interesting story on the Canadian Bruce Nodwell, the inventor of these vehicles.

I am attending a meeting in Snowmass CO but have had a chance to get out and do some shooting with my Hasselblad. Both of these taken with H3DII-31 and 28mm lens
Beautiful images, Mark! Did you use any software perspective control on the first picture?
I had the default setting of Phocus set to DAC. I should go back and look at DAC plus and minus but I spent a lot of time at the site trying to get the right position in terms of the level by which I took this shot. It was not an easy place to get to. I am not sure i would do it again.
