    In my backyard

    Ok so I am totally jealous of those on the Road to Moab.

    I have decided to post a few pictures from home for those who could not make the time commitment for the workshop. Show us what you do while Jack and Guy hit the road.

    An historic Texas house:

    Re: In my backyard

    OK so I am struggling here...this is a bit down a rail line from the house...not historic but a nice geometric relief

    MF is MF, film or silicon, all the same to me and both yeild great results. Just a lot more dust spotting with the latter.

    I love the way trees grow in response to stress...we would do well to follow their example.

    Thanks Peter,

    I am struggling with all of the color reflections on the pale walls from the furniture in the room, pictures on the walls, and greens from the outside foliage...plays havoc with WB in Photoshop. Seems like too many curves and color balance moves for me. At first I thought I was dealing with color shift on the sensor then realized it was much more complex as it is all over the room.

    At times I give up and desaturate if it is too wild to get right in color. I hate to do multiple layers and masks and then paint each shift as it never seems to be as clean as the straight capture.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, although I should admit that I am not too excited about buying large amounts of strobe equipment to correct this. Too many other toys I "need" first.

    Bob

    Re: In my backyard

    IMO this is definitely colour shift and you can see it in the outdoors shots as well with the skies going Magenta.
    You need to use a diffuser filter (normally supplied with the digital back) and to take a diffused image using the same f-stop/Aperture, then use a facility in the software to correct your images.

    Some softwares will also let you correct vignetting at the same time.

    I assume that I do have a large element of that in many of the pictures but thought that it would be mainly limited to the sides of the pictures. I attempted to use an Expodisc...screwed into the front of the lens and shot a capture at the same F stop but had to correct over 3 stops to see anything. Expodisc recommends to shoot a capture back at the camera as an incident meeter but this is counter intuitive for LCC. Am I able to correct exposure and then apply this for the LCC or do I need a different type of filter? This is an H3D 39 II so I pose this question to Hasselblad owners also.

    The new Phocus has a white balance selection for LCC now and I am unsure if it will need corrections for all Fstops and focus distance combinations. Any ideas?

    Thanks for the input.

    You need an opaque White plexi filter which is thick enough to diffuse the image. It looses you about 2 stops which you need to bring back by pushing the exposure time.

    The 45mm is quite forgiving just wait till you've tried it with a Schneider 35mm or 24mm with some shift....

    Color Correction with Phocus and an Expodisc.

    I had tried to capture a custom white reference file when I shot the pictures in the house but until prompted by Yair did not look at them closely enough. The following is the reference file.

    Uncorrected capture of ceiling fan...no color balance was attempted. Please look only at the colors ...like most of my stuff it is devoid of any artistic merit.

    Re: In my backyard

    Now the same capture after the reference file was applied in Phocus. Same workflow as the previous except for the reference file in Phocus.

    Re: In my backyard

    This is repost of Another Place from Above with the generic custom file applied in Phocus. I realize that even without shift nor tilt there is the potential for significant color casts with wide angle lenses. I knew this from my experience with the Leica M8 and CornerFix but now know the need to look for it in this setting. These files were corrected with a generic capture that was applied to different lighting situations, hence they are improved but still are not dead on correct.


    So now I will begin to capture a reference frame for most of my Alpa work.

    Thanks Yair - for pointing out what now seems all too obvious.
