Behind the scenes

Here's one I did of an exploding sparkling wine bottle for a billboard! (printed 50ft wide by 14ft tall)

Lots went into this including special glass cutting tools, water pumping hoses, standard issue DKR (Dexter's Kill Room - used to keep water splashes off the gear!)...massive post-proc techniques ...rinse, lather, repeat for over 25 different bottles!

Oh yeah...Leaf Credo-80, DF+, SK120 Macro AF, PocketWizards, Broncolor Boxlite40's, PaulCBuff Einsteins...tons of DIY mods...
So cool.

Here's a couple shots from my recent trip to Port Renfrew, namely at Botanical Beach and Botany Bay.

Hi,

just returned from a three week road trip in the US. Shot 10 rolls of Kodak Portra 160 with the Hasselblad 203FE, here's a behind
the scenes example. Will share some more images in the Analog Camera section of the forum in the next couple of days.

Best Regards, Ralf.

Ralf,

That is so cool! Please share your general travel area with us. Not only do I find it fascinating that you are shooting analog like I enjoy, but that your 3-week travel venture was right here in the U.S.

Sometimes, as they say, you don't see the forest for the trees, even when it is a desert. I would love to hear more about your travel story!:)

Dear Dave,

thanks for the kind words. I started a new thread in the Analog Cameras section of this forum, see
https://www.getdpi.com/forum/analog...south-us-two-lane-highways-country-roads.html

I will continue posting images there for the next couple of days.

It was such a pleasure shooting the analog Hasselblad again after my wife took away my 503CW ten years ago and convinced
me that I should get something more modern. Heck, and I listened to her :facesmack:

Best Regards,
Ralf

Did you tell your wife that for most of human history, people did not have cameras and film. In fact, the first camera was made centuries before we could figure out how to make film for the darn thing (which is my proof that photographers are really gearheads first and image makers second). So next time, just say she should be grateful you are not a dinosaur and paint!

Just say "Yes dear" and photograph whatever and whichever way you want to. We are photographers.

And tell her that it was a 'minor' change since last time (although playing the game that she's not as dumb as you'd like her to be). if you're friends these are little white lies that we reciprocate for a happy life. :D

I have a friend who plays this game and seems to get away with it but knowing his wife for 25 years I'm not convinced that he's getting away with it vs just silent acceptance.

And this is the lady who took away my 503CW and this is the result of what she's doing with it.
Hope its allowed to share here, BTS image by myself, real image by my wife Andrea.

Cheers,
Ralf

Part of the daily routine of my wife on our road trip was to document the interior of the motels we were staying
and sometimes, well it got a bit tight.

Here's a couple more from last week at the Bund in Shanghai, it wasn't a good sunrise, so we decided to shoot some camera porn instead (first image curtesy of Kim san) :salute:

Working with the double rig, 32mm on the digital back and 90mm on the 6x9 film back shooting some ektar 100, yet to get the roll developed, will get to see what's happened to that hopefully next week!

So, I remember a while back I accepted a challenge to add a cup holder to my rig......well here it is.

It started as a joke, but it turned out really handy, originally designed for baby strollers it's really light and has a rubber flange to hold the beverage in place, I guess it's a keeper, especially during sunrise shoots on rooftops, when coffee actually saves lives....:facesmack:

Ha! Good idea.Having spent many cold nights lately standing around the camera waiting on long exposures shooting the night skies, that would have been handy!

I have a few bottle cages for my bicycle that I could adapt.... hmmm.:)
