    Re: Behind the scenes

    Here's a fun one from a couple of years ago I did for Holcim concrete. It's a beautiful day in downtown Minneapolis at -16F with a wind chill off the charts. My old Imacon back mounted on a Cambo Wide DS. Everything worked fine.

    Re: Behind the scenes



    Used three filters: 0.9 + 0.6 ND + 0.75 Grad ND to reduce mid-day cloudy light (also gave it the maroon hue) to get longer exposure

    I like to contribute to the threads I really enjoy checking out on a regular basis - this thread, well this is the first time I have remembered and had a second camera with me.

    Rainy morning and a cow with doleful eyes gazed my way.

    Re: Behind the scenes

    Hooded mergansers. Edge 100% crop. Taken with a 645D + 1.4x + 600mm.
    The 600 A* is manual focus, but I use my left hand to grasp the handle with my palm resting on the focus ring. The focus movement is so smooth that I can easy make adjustments with my palm in the postion shown.

    Re: Behind the scenes

    Grand Staircase Escalante, Utah. Standing on top of a butte similar to the ones in the picture. Cambo WRS, SK35XL, Leaf Aptus II 7. Two vertical shots, stitched and slightly cropped.

    My friend Chris shot the behind the scene pic, thanks... As you can see on my shirt it was very windy, it was quite a job to make the image, trying to prevent my hat to blow over the edge and about 700 feet down.

    Re: Behind the scenes

    This is for an art commission I'm working on. The film is at the lab for processing.

    Used my 4x5 to shoot an early morning scene of Georgetown (Washington DC). The original idea was to get some college crew boats in the shot & do a B&W image, but they cancelled practice. I took a few shots on HP5 & a couple with Portra 160. The fog made for an interesting scene.

    Here are some from the Cherry Blossoms in DC about a month ago.

    617 pano just after sunrise. I went back a week later & got a shot of the path without the people.

    5 x 7 shortly after sunset on the same day.

    Re: Behind the scenes

    I had a breakdown near here with no photo gear along. Spent the time wandering around checking things out while I waited for a rescue. I was attracted by the rust stains on this old relic, and thought there could be a photograph or two here. I came back and did a series only to find out I'd not taken near enough slices for the photo stack of what I thought was my best shot. Recently came back again and and did my slices. The challenge for what I was trying to do was to not include any of the background structures in any of the photos. My humble setup. Pentax 645D, Pentax 645A 35mm.

    Very nice. I have found the Pentax Reconverter 645 right-angle finder really good in this situation. It is one of the best accessories for the 645D. KEH has a couple now.

    Re: Behind the scenes

    Thanks, Shashin. I have one but have never used it. This would have been the perfect spot. Geese ply these grounds, as evidenced by close inspection of the shooting location. I guess I worry about the camera threads spinning it on and off. Also it's one more thing to carry. I should certainly give a try. It would probably entice me to get lower camera perspectives and search more of those shots out.

    Re: Behind the scenes

    I would not worry about the threads. If you screw it in with the finder body, at some point the pressure will be too much for the friction in the mounting screw and it will spin and not tighten further--to change position, I always spin it clockwise as so not to loosen it. This thing is always in my bag. I don't use it very much, but when it is needed, it makes the world of difference.

    Re: Behind the scenes



    The set up.

    My first trip to Söderåsen national park in the south of Sweden. Unfortunately time was limited. I have to get back later this fall to capture the scenes better. This national park has a lot to offer. If you are in the neighborhood I recommend you to put one day aside to explore the landscape.





    The result.

    Some older shots I stumbled across. My wife took this as I waited (somewhat impatiently) for the traffic to clear in Sagano forest, Arashiyama, Japan.

    Re: Behind the scenes

    Some wonderful images in this thread. Below I used an ND plus a Grad ND to manage the light (which also gave it the deeper magenta) at f20 for 81 seconds. Attached to my antique H3DII39 was the HTS + 28mm.






    However, the most important piece of equipment was...

    I find myself often preferring the "Behind the Scene" photos to the real intended photo. This is a good example.

    That probably sounds a little harsher than what was intended, but I think I know what you mean though. Seeing the context of a shot can be very illuminating and there's often quite a difference between the stark 'real' environmental scene to the finished art image.

    Personally, I love this thread and enjoy both the environmental images and the great final results.

    Hi Tom,

    It's super light & compact, I will not use it unless I'm using TC with a not-too-heavy lens, normally, I use it with my Leica, but that day, i'm lazy to carry my series 1, so take that Sirui, it's similar to Gitzo series 0 : )

    Cheers,

    Thanks for correcting my intention Graham. I also love this thread and most of the pictures. I was referring to the excellent picture in post #182 above that I liked. Didn't realize that my comment would not be threaded.

    On location on the Macquarie River west of Sydney.



    In my left hand you can see I have the GND filter ready to hold in front of the lens once I get the focus, etc where I wanted it.

    That's a good one Mal; I like the steel-blue water emerging from darkness.

    Re: Behind the scenes

    Thanks Tom

    It has taken a shift in my thinking to start celebrating some areas of flat black in some images.
    Also the almost black and white is inspired by my visit to the Ansel Adam's exhibition in Sydney at present. Funny how inspiration works.
