Whoops spelling mistake.

I'm never sure, when I ask questions like that, if I'm going to be revealing my own cultural ignorance  ;)

Shame, really. I like Rob's idea.

Thanks Antonio. I would have shot this with film if I had had it with me, but such was not the case. As it were it is a 3x stitch with a Canon 45 T/S.

Of course, the micro contrast and atmospheric mood you would get with film is different, mostly in landscapes.
But still my preferences for the ease of digital.

Kirk, what are your thoughts regarding that  lens? When I tried it out I was disappointed: softness (especially when shifted), CA, barrel distortion. So I never bought one, and limped along with "regular" 50mm lenses and/or cropped down from my 24TS. Recently I bought the Schneider 50TS -- I posted a few examples from it on the "Cameras & Lenses" thread here.

For b&w I actually don't find digital any easier. Convenient yes on the capture side, but more work in post to get the tones I want.

Actually, here's a couple with the Schneider Super Angulon 50mm that I was going to post here anyway...

I made the kitchen shot in a big hurry during a lunch break (because my client was utterly disinterested in it but I wanted it). Now he's licensing it....heh. 8)

I also made a 4x5 film version of that, on Ektar 100 but I'm not holding out much hope for it as I was really rushed at the time. I just don't shoot with that camera enough to be truly proficient with it.

I guess I was asking more in terms of interiors...I know you wouldn't have the lens if you didn't think it worked, but are you seeing any of the issues that I mentioned? I think the Canon 24 is really the gold standard for me and I tend to hold other lenses to that, which is kind of unrealistic, I suppose.

Scott, You missed my humor. A single capture image that looks like crap in terms of CA and soft corners can become acceptable when you then build the image from 3 frames even from the same lens and camera and only print it to 11x14. Yes the lens is very mediocre.

Haha! Whew!
I respect both you and your work, and if you were going to tell me that this lens was something great I was really going to question my sanity! Or maybe yours....

Thanks for clarifying.

Very Nice work Scott. Congrats on the Schneider Super Angulon 50mm. Quite some money there.

Kirk, do you still print negatives conventionally, or do you print only digitally now?

Recent personal / portfolio series. The first one is coming out in Workbook in the next week or two. It's a single capture, H3DII-39, HC 50mm lens.

The shoot was a ton of fun, but it's also hell shooting that close to the tide. Sand gets in everything. The water occasionally comes much higher than you expect, potentially drenching gear. Whether the tide is rising or receding, you're constantly moving the talent and lights with it.

Thanks! I put them through some retouching too, but I try to get as much in-camera as I can. The octopus and seagull were there in the (fake / stuffed) flesh. One of the perks of being in L.A. -- amazing FX and wardrobe houses, plus a very expensive taxidermist.

Absolutely true, b&w film is easier to handle after the capture than digital.

Nice shot, but i have 2 comments:

1. Is that flare on face a good idea? I like the sun flare if it is there without getting on the face, but maybe some like it this way i dunno.

2. It will be better if her left foot is shown fully rather than it is cropped.
