Photos from Australia
« on: July 01, 2013, 09:41:07 AM »

Michael recently returned from a fabulous trip to Australia, with (literally) a boat load of medium format photographers with equipment to play with. But all of the posted photos are from his Fuji X-Pro 1. What gives?

Medium format is alive and well, thank you.

I brought my Alpa and IQ180 back on this trip. I also had access to a Phase camera and every lens that they make. It just happens that of the 3500 frames shot the ones that I've published so far are done with the X-Pro 1.

That camera leant itself to helicopter shooting better than the Alpa, and also to confined spaces such as when shooting rock art.

Hi,

I guess that means that the X-Pro 1 is good enough.

Best regards
Erik

How do you find time to work through 3500 frames :-)

Do you already have a fairly fixed idea of which sequences you want to work, or do you expect to stumble across images that have something unexpected to them?

Since I'm not on an editorial deadline, and it is simply for my own pleasure (and maybe a future book or exhibit), I just take my time.

Many shots are part of sequences (maybe a third of the total), so it's often just a matter of finding the shot with the best expression, exposure, sharpness etc, out of a series. Other than that I sit back with a coffee or glass of wine and work though them, organizing labeling, and ranking and when something jumps off the screen, working on it and making a print.

This is as much fun as the shooting sometimes.

But Slobodan didn't. ;) ;D

You know, Stamper, I was actually quite shocked!

Shocked that Isaac finally understood something without further questioning! ;D
