    Alex I think these are very well done. Your client should be pleased. If I were to criticize at all they might be just a tad too warm, (though this is a very subjective evaluation in this particular case) but the treatment also provides richness and warmth to the subject. Other than that excellent work.

    Tones are rich, lights smooth.
    The place looks great -and not exactly cheap.

    Btw, if you shot some with your D3X on this session, it'b be interesting to see them (Nikon section?)...
    Nope, I had not enough time. Becides, I don't have such a wide lens for my Nikon.... even if I had there are no movements

    Thank you Rob! That restaurant have another small room and it's all yellow - with very interesting interior too. But either me or Provia failed to catch it on emulsion. I think the problem with the first case

    LOL, been there done that too although it was not too funny at the time. Oh well can't nail it every time can we.

    I assume then you did not use any auxiliary lighting then? Or CC filters? Just curious.

    Alex,
    Mixed lighting is obviously a challenge, in the images you posted it worked out pretty well but it could have been a lot worse.

    I've seen excellent examples of multiple exposure - one of the Kodak books, I think - where one exposure was made at daytime to capture the outdoors scenery through the windows, and one exposure at night, using different filtration, to capture the indoors scene. Very tedious of course, and not always possible, but the results can be stunning.

    Thank you! I had an idea to take a pic to make up windows, so only different exposure would be used. But different filters... that's a good idea!

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    There's a good example of multiple exposure in Simmons: "Using the View Camera, revised edition", a an exterior photo of the post office building in Stockton. First exposure long before sunrise to get the interior lighting, with filtration to make the fluorescent lighting warm an pleasand Second exposure 30 mins after sunrise captured the exterior in bright sunlight.

    (I could not find that image online).

    Perfect framing. Great shot. You're brave to go the 16th floor of that place!

    This was one of the last LF frames I took. 8x10 using a Cooke triple at the 311 length using Vericolor Neg IIRC, facing West just after sunset. This was in Salton Sea, CA and where our next workshop is being held:



    Here's another one, but cropped to pano format. IIRC, this was taken with a Computar 210 on Astia, facing West just at sunrise:

    That is a great pano , Jack .
    Just the type i am looking for , for my forum calendar plans for 2012/13 .

    I took a screen shot and removed the magenta cast from the sky and the mountains . Not perfect , but good enough for a quick jpg screen shot . Looks great .

    ... That "magenta cast" was real --- it is fairly common to get a magenta to blue sky gradient during early morning and evening light in the desert. You'll notice it's only in the sky, and not on the trees or building...

    Here's one of my latest. A little while ago already, I need to do 4x5" more... Fuji 160 NPS, beaten up Busch Pressman D, Angulon 90/6.8. No miracles, but it does the job. Comments welcome!

    Gulf coast? I wish! This is in near Utrecht, the Netherlands, it's not your average sight, sadly. The person in a friend I asked to pose for me. If I ever get to printing this on 20x24" you'd be able to see she's writing in her journal..

    I welcome all. Approximately one year ago, I began to shoot in landscape at 9x12, see Technical questions I have not bothered you before, I had operational experience in technical photography, including with the use of LF. Landscape for my new employment, so your comments will be very useful for me. Linhof Technica, SA65, f19, 1 / 30, Film E100G. Miass River, Southern Ural Mountains, Russia.

    I can't help with any technical comments, but I know a beautiful image when I see one, and this is certainly beautiful.

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    Hi Yuri, Great image but you knew that of course

    Assuming this is late afternoon, I think an interesting variation would have been to make another exposure 30-60 min later, to get even more glow from the white canyon wall, as well as more pronounced shadows from the trees to the right.

    Colors look a bit strong for E100G - is this a straight scan or modified WRT color and contrast?

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    Thank you Lloyd and Lars! For me Your words are a big score. Yes Lars course you are right you can wait 30-40 minutes, but after 60 minutes of the walls of the canyon is covered by shadow, including the trees on the right. Also I wanted to keep the texture in the foreground and the shades of shrubs right after they'd lost in the shadows. Contrast the scene is very high I could not even put it in the breadth of E100G-bottom right corner, possibly due to lack center-filter. Lars is the saturation curves of channels in the LAB, again failed to meet the breadth of the film can play as Velvia.

    Oh - no center filter. That's a problem with a 65 and slide film. I think that's the technical advice I would give - get a center filter if you can, and also try to use ND grads to balance dynamic range when appropriate.

    Yes, LAB saturation boost, now that you mention it it's obvious in the blues-yellows.

    Yuri, I like the image as is. But you are correct working with transparency film in these contrasty lighting conditions most assuredly pushes the envelop of what is obtainable from deep shadow to highlight. Regarding the use of Lab mode, a little goes a long with this that tool.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Yes Lars center-filter uncompromising solution to this problem when you shoot obtained failures in the shadows of the gradients will not help.

    Роб спасибо.Общение в форуме доставляет мне большое удовольствие и конечно весьма полезно для моего творчества. Ранее я задумывался о приобретении центр-фильтра и Lee ND 0.6;0,9 сейчас необходимость назрела.

    Thanks Rob. Dialogue in a forum delivers me a great pleasure and certainly it is rather useful for my creativity. Earlier I reflected on acquisition of the centre-filter and Lee ND 0.6; 0.9 now necessity has ripened.

    Yuri, if available, buy color negative film and your latitude problems will be solved (most of the time). Portra160NC/VC are fabulous films.

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    Tex. I love Portra 160 in MF when it is not necessary the big increase. The high density of a filter layer and non-uniform high granularity does not arrange in it a filter layer that badly approaches for scanning. Very much it is pleasant to me Portra 160 shown in developer with ЦПВ-1 still the Soviet manufacture. Thus granularity strongly increases, and colours are transferred in style of a retro very pleasant warm colours sometimes it pertinently.

    Late reply: go soon, they have started clearing the rubble and cutting down the trees in places. They want to make it more suitable for tourists. I think they don't quite realize that the rubble and the trees is what makes it worth going all the way out there.

    I love that shot, Jack. Is that the XVa you mean?

    Thanks Carsten!

    Yes, this shot was taken with XVa, both elements mounted, 311mm configuration. As I recall it was a 2 minute exposure at f32 on Vericolor III.

    I find myself wishing that 8x10" didn't exist

    Well... With the loss of readyloads in 4x5, it's precisely the reason I said if I ever got back into shooting LF film, I would go for a 5x7 camera --- most lenses for 4x5 will cover 5x7, the cameras are still relatively light-weight and compact, yet you have 2x the negative area to play with. Of course 8x10 is another 2x of area over 5x7, but now you're talking much larger and heavier, and a whole new set of glass

    Jack, I must say that you have owned a stunning amount of top-gear equipment, like Lotus, Ebony, Phase, Rodenstock and Schneider, and often some of the very most desirable of the pieces. Either you have managed your money extremely well, or you are married to a dealer!
