    Re: San Juan 2008-05

    tollie - I really like the stark simplicity and muted colors of "from my bed at dawn". The whole series you posted is very nice - every images tells a story in an interesting way.

    Rob - the two girls through the glass is a winner for me. Love the colors and the figure in the background but the smile radiating from the young girl in green is captivating. Good job. And nice timing on the last one.

    Keep them coming, I am really missing out.

    Robert,
    I like the frozen moment of time captured at the loading zone. One will ponder forever whether the suspended box is going into or out of the truck and wonder what was said that was so funny.

    Good Morning All,

    We did the dawn patrol this AM... up at 5:30 out on the street shortly after. I split off from the group after a bit.

    Brad did me a kindness by loaning me his 1956 50mm colapsable summicron...

    all of these images were made with this lens.

    Thanks for looking and commenting... its like we have a world wide community.

    Wow, guys, you are all on a roll already! This is so much fun to watch all the great pictures come in. FANTASTIC!

    Welcome Tollie, great shooting and it's terrific to have you here. Love all of your shots, but the "waking up" picture is so special, that needs to be framed and on the wall for sure.

    Terry, hope you made it there OK last night, can't wait to see San Juan through your eyes (and cameras, lol).

    Oh, how I wish I could be there ............
    Regards,
    Joan

    Could you please explain what "with custom coloring" means? Your MF shots are just fantastic.

    This is a three image shift/stitch Pano from San Juan. I used the Leica 28m and shifted 10mm each way. The stitched file is over 6700 pixels wide.

    Finally, the D300 got some love this morning as well. Probably won't be shooting all three together too often but it wasn't too cumbersome this morning.....

    Yeah, Terry! Wahoo! You are doing great things with both cameras already. GRD2 shots lookin' GOOD!

    Rob, love the pano and the BW conversion is very nice. I NEED that lesson (and all the others from these workshops). Next year I AM going to do at least one workshop, by hook or by crook!

    Brad again is tempting me...

    This AM he lent me a 12mm voightlander to play with. What a treat... set it at f 5.6 and focus on inf... and you have turned a 5K M8 into a $200 point and shoot... incredible.

    I made these photographs on the way to lunch.

    The first shot is of the main church in San Juan which is across the street from the hotel.

    The last three are of a converted seminary... now used by the University for cultural programming and courses.


    All shot wide open.

    wow.

    Re: San Juan 2008-05

    OK...

    This PM late we had a special event.

    Two models were added to this volatile mix. Both were great and Guy/Jack set up street, interior venues to shoot. At one stop we worked at a converted Seminary... at another straight street... I mean the middle of the street with traffic backed up over the hill.

    I chose to shoot the group... I shot the 75mm summarit.

    I am posting native jpgs basically straight out of the camera... I have the DNG's but these will do in the interest of speed.

    Those P30+ images are looking very, very nice, Guy. I'm watching your evaluation process very carefully.

    Robert, those noctilux shots look wonderful ... especially the one of the woman at the end of the bar.

It is lat now, but here are two which will whet your appetite for more. I have lots more Maybe I will post them in their own thread tomorrow!

    Robert, those noctilux shots look wonderful ... especially the one of the woman at the end of the bar.
    Kurt as you know I have been avoiding this issue for too long and the bottom line is bigger is better. MF has and always will be better overall in images. WE certainly can get close, Nice files from Nikon , Leica an the others have certainly tried and we have pushed hard to get there but MF digital just freaking rocks. Once you try these you start banging your head with what the hell have we been thinking . But nothing wrong with that, certainly the DMR and M8 images have done a awesome job for us and now we see the Nikon D3 starting to do the same. But reality is time to grow up also, as Pro's you just have to deliver the best you can with what you have. These backs are just the ticket even though it is expensive and a tougher road to work in. The results are what count. As much as i have loved the M8 and it's light weight and size plus the wonderful images from it nothing will beat a MF file. The thing that eluded me is I thought bigger files meant big weight and bulk , sure there bigger but honestly my Mamiya is no bigger than your D3 and actually lighter, we have 2 D3's here plus a D300 . I still use the same bags so really not the biggest issue. The big concern is feeding it light. Seriously it is a 2 stop loss in DOF compared to FF and you need to make that up somewhere. Reason i said i need a great ISO 400 for the times you need to squeeze the envelope. The Phase backs actually all three of them will give you a nice ISO 400 file and some better than that but your best option is using C1 to do it also. These backs are fine tuned to to C1 better than any program I have seen between camera and company software. This is a real marriage , stuff that looked a little off in LR was perfect in C1 and i will explain that later but when looking at these Mf systems look for a damn system that is tight between camera , back and software. I cannot stress this enough , seriously after one minute of setup I am shooting with no issues and it just works and this is not a knock on anyone but Phase has this stuff down really well. Look for a system that has the three parts as tight as you can get otherwise it is something not sure i want to deal with.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
