Fujifilm GFX 100S, Arca-Swiss F-Univeralis, and Mamiya N 43mm f/4.5 L -- tilt to bring everything into focus.

I don't normally gravitate towards photographs of bridges and water control structures... The project this is a part of has been a nice push out of my comfort zone. Figuring out how to make a photograph of this kind of structure that someone might want to spend a few moments with to understand what's going on has been a good challenge, ideally suited to a technical camera.

I normally don't post this stuff, but the sunrise was so spectacular I decided to. When we finish a project to turnover to a tenant, I will always do an exterior shot. This morning just happened to be great, I was wishing I was shooting this in someplace like Death Valley or the Oregon Coast.

Went out with a couple of buddies to a local rocky beach in Palos Verdes, CA. I've owned an IQ4 for a while now, but never tried frame averaging. That thing is sweet! I also had a 45mm Rodenstock (magenta ring) converted to cambo mount by Digital Integrations a while back. That thing holds up really well!

Frame averaging is the bees knees for scenes like this

Here is an interesting video featuring LF camera for street portraits. As someone commented, the real skill is asking and convincing people.
wow! Interesting video. I am also impressed he nailed the focus even at f/5.6.

Greetings from Tuscany. Weather here is very changeable and today doesn't disappoint. This is just a little way West from Pienza. Someone is really getting rained on!!

Hello Victor, how does the 60mm perform with the 100s? Does it need LCC? what are the maximum movements?

Camped at Convict lake a couple nights ago, it is in the Eastern Sierra's near Mammoth Lakes, California. According to Wikipedia the lake was renamed from its traditional Mono name by American settlers after an incident on September 23, 1871, in which a group of convicts escaped from prison in Carson City, Nevada, and took refuge near the lake. They were pursued by a posse, and after it caught up to the convicts, a shootout followed.

A couple of months before we went on our trip to Hawai'i, Kilauea stopped erupting. It resumed 4 days after we got back home. Seeing the volcano erupting was one of the main reasons we wanted to go to Hawai'i in the first place so we decided to go back one week after we go home! I'm glad we did because it has stopped erupting again– https://apnews.com/article/hawaii-volcano-eruption-lava-kilauea-850ac13a85d9050aa1a064fe1feba63f.

The first time I went I brought the GFX, this time I brought the IQ4 instead.

For my first attempt at this composition I tried focus stacking. It seemed simple enough to make two exposures, one focusing on the waterfall and the other on the foliage in the foreground. Helicon Focus was not able to separate the foliage from the background. I am very happy that I made another exposure with the 60XL and a couple degrees of tilt.

Same waterfall, different composition. This time the two image focus stack worked.

This image was taken from the same spot as the above picture, but this time with a longer focal length.
