    Hi,

    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!

    Re: Behind the scenes

    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-...try-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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Re: Behind the scenes

    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.

    Re: Behind the scenes

    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)

    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!

    Re: Behind the scenes

    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....

    Re: Behind the scenes

    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.

    I was thinking about this while pulling a lens out of the bag and noticed this. Hasselblad is really tightening their branding. Now even the smudges on the lenses have the signature "H."

    Re: Behind the scenes: Camellias

    This was a test shoot to see if I could successfully use a digital back with a shutterless lens and to see if the old lens had a center sweet spot. Using a 44x33 digital sensor is very small compared to the 4x5" film I will shoot with it, but it can help identify some of the lens' characteristics. This lens was acquired to use with film projects. It is very old (c.1880s), soft, swirly bokeh when shot with 4x5" film, and is of the uniquely lens design, Petzval. S.K. Grimes mounted the lens to a Graphic lens board and made Waterhouse stops for it from f/5.6 thru f/22.

    My Sinar Norma has a mechanical shutter without flash sync that is old and tired. I only use it on the "B" setting in the studio with strobes.

    If you do not have any experience with studio strobes and how you can pop them, maybe this will help: I use the phrase "pop the lights" for two different scenarios. (1) to achieve a higher f/stop. As an example, if the lights' power is maxed-out, and I am only able to get to f/8, but I need f/16, I will pop once for f/8, twice for f/11, and thrice for f/16. The lens is set open on "B" with ambient lights off; this works best in a darken studio. (2) to operate a shutterless lens like the Petzval in front of the Sinar's mechanical shutter, simply leave the shutter on B. In this shoot, my lights were set and the meter read f/5.6 mostly, but after a few shots, I choose to override the meter and stop down by placing a f/11 Waterhouse stop inside the lens. My meter is accurate, but with the type of contrast I was playing with between two lights, and because Waterhouse stops are not as accurate as modern lens-shutter designs, I needed to stop down. I was trying to create dramatic lighting to see how the Petzval would behave, and give some depth to the composition.

    The hurdle I faced was how to get the Hasselblad CFV-50c back to work without using its prescribed sync cord. The manual does not get into this type of shooting practice. I can easily fire the Profoto D1 strobes via the Air remote using the "test" button which is what I do a lot with equipment that either malfunctions or is not made to sync with strobes. But this would be the first time I would use the 50c without using its sync cable. Connecting a flash output cable between the 50c and the Air remote did nothing. I dug thru my electrical drawer looking for some type of a sync cable that had a sub-mini stereo plug and some type of sync trigger bound together. I got lucky when I found a couple of aftermarket P45 one-shot cables I could take apart. I tested this 'trigger' cable with the 50c and it fired!

    Below are a couple of snapshots of the setup and the outcome. Uncoated lenses do not always play well with color so I converted it to monochrome.

    Hope this helps add to your photography knowledge in some way.

    Kind regards,
    Darr

    Re: Behind the scenes

    A few weeks ago I was in Hamilton, Montana on business. After a few days of great sunrises when I couldn't get out, I got up early the day I was leaving to capture something in the Bitterroots. Got myself to a nice spot, but this time the sunrise was a bust. Great little hike regardless.
