    Nice sheet metal.

    Some of these have "blown highlights" to me John.

    Hi John

    Wonderful series. Must be exciting living in Brooklyn where it would seem more metal bending goes on than almost anywhere else in the USA

    Congratulations. You and the 205TCC and the CFV have become fast friends it would seem.

    John need to come to South Phoenix. We got some pretty heavy low riders down here. May not get home alive but may see some nice cars.

    Re: Brooklyn Rumblers

    I had similar issues when shooting my car series last weekend John ... the trick is to underexpose a tad to hold the highlight detail especially in the chrome near any specular highlight ... and use Phocus to lift the shadow areas ... while adjusting the Dark Limit in sharpening to control noise.

    In extreme cases, for worthy images, process it twice, layer in PS, and blend the two.

    Re: Brooklyn Rumblers

    Marc:
    i try to judge exposure with the histogram, but it is unspecific about where the over-exposure might be in the image, unless you enable that irritating, blinking overexposed function. the image size on the back is too small to really analyse and the spot meter function requires you know the dynamic range you can get away with.

    any tips for the on-camera exposure measuring?

    thanks

    Re: Brooklyn Rumblers

    Marc, Interesting that you bring up the topic on exposure. I am very interested to see how the Hasselblad 203FE (average) versus 205TCC/FCC (spot) metering works in difficult scene like the one John is shooting and on digital crop factor sensor. I believe that there are advantages to spot metering especially built into the camera like the 205TCC/FCC. In the case of crop factor sensor with camera average metering, the average light metered may no longer represent the image areas that is intended to capture. In an average scenery the effect may not seen but in more challenging scene perhaps the average meter is off. In the case of difficult scenery, light metering without studio strobes or other flash to aid may be difficult; in this case spot metered the bright and the dark areas must be within the DR of the sensor.

    Jim, since Marc does not have the spot metering camera and you do perhaps you should look into the spot zone metering of the 205TCC. There are two books for your 205TCC. One is called Zone Photography in Black/White where they illustrate how you can shoot this difficult scene and other book titled Zone Photography in Colour. If you cannot find these two books let me know and I can help you. I believe if you study this two simple books they will help you to take your 205TCC to another level.

    Best Regards,
    Son

    Re: Brooklyn Rumblers

    Son, I would agree ... in very difficult circumstances, a spot meter can be invaluable ... which is most certainly why Hasselblad offered that option in their flagship 200 series camera.

    I've found that both the add-on prism meters and the meter in the 203FE to be among the best I've used ... of the averaging type. It just takes care in where you meter. I've used a 203FE for so long now, I pretty much have it down pat.

    hi Marc,
    Yes I agree with the 203FE camera concept and thus bought one last week as well and sent it to Hasselblad to get it converted to complement my 205TCC and 205FCC. The metering on these Hasselblad 200 series cameras are among the best I have seen. I also plan to buy the new P45 Metering prism with the ambient light dome.

    best regards,
    -Son

    Re: Brooklyn Rumblers

    and to think ...some of those automobiles are worth almost as much as a high end MFD back and a lens or two..LOL

    Son - you must help me get either a 203 or a 205..since I have now a 50/100/150 and 250 to suit..

    Actually, I think the 250/4FE was harder to find ... at least when I was looking.
    That 250 was/is a very popular lens for pros doing head shots.
