Title: Fun with 35mm Camera images
Post by: Paul2660 on November 08, 2017, 09:05:04 am
I hope that we can get this thread to grow as well as the fun with Medium format images has.  We have a lot of 35mm camera users on this forum but so far as I can tell, not a post to share.  So I am starting this one, hope to see a lot more from all the other users.

I'll bite. Here's one from a trip I took through Nevada last summer in the shops at the Nevada Northern Railway. It was taken with an M4 and 28mm which was part of "a closet of cameras you should look at before they are hauled to the dump..."

Sunset afterglow on Petit Jean Mountain, Arkansas. D850, and 24mm Sigma Art 1.4. Taken in 3 vertical segments and exposure bracketed. Capture One used for raw conversion and Adobe CC for pano.

Not finding the same push in shadows with the D850 that I found with both D800e and D810. D850 is much more a bracketing camera. This series was taken at a low ISO (I believe 100), longer exposures and I paid for it with some wind motion. But a single exposure just doesn't have the same reach. Sigma Art 24mm was at F10 or 11, as I was wanting max hyperfocal for rocks in foreground.

Colors are wonderful however.

Paul, Do you mean "35mm film cameras" or "full frame digital cameras"?  Or both?
I post my full frame digital images in "The Art of Photography" forums.  Is that the wrong place to post them?

Hi, I was hoping for any type, film or digital.  I had looked for a different topic to post and missed the one you mention.  The MF forum has a very nice running topic similar to this and I have been surprised that nothing was in this forum as there are so many folks that visit.

Good point, and even better photograph. Photographs may only be possible with film. I suspect digital is just another sterile recording of dots and dashes or horses and zebras. It's terribly convenient, though, and also calls to my inner layabout. But one day!

Man, you've just reminded me of the worst thing about northern European winter: cold - or worse - wet feet. It ruined everything else. I always maintained, after reaching the age when I stopped thinking that sliding down slopes was cool (probaby the coolest thing I ever did experience, to be literal about it), that snow was at its best on postcards from somebody else.

Once, long ago when I was considering joining the Leica club, I was handed a brochure featuring the Venice Carnival, photographed by one Fulvio Roiter, amid snow and sleet: beautiful images, enough to convince many that Leica had the answers to their dreams. Sadly, nowhere did the brochure mention feet: mine.

https://www.google.es/search?q=fulvio+roiter+carnival&dcr=0&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjspLfZ2KfYAhUDXhQKHbPkD7sQsAQIKQ&biw=1259&bih=863

The link is just a general one - for the brochure you'd need to be nice to those gentle folks in Germany and ask them to raid their own archives.

This is my last photograph. It could also have been the last picture of my life.
I took it october 22. October 26 an heart attack caused a massive insufficiency of the mitral valve, I still had only a few hours of life. The valve was replaced with a tissue prosthesis with an emergency open-heart surgery. Since then I' haven't shot any photo. (I had the idea to take some photos in the cardiovascular intensive care unit, following the iconography of the Dead Christ of Mantegna ::) ::) but I gave it up )

My suggestion is to work very hard in rehab.  If they ask you to do x15 minutes on the treadmill at level 2, do x20 minutes at level 3 etc.  On Feb. 5 of this year I had an ache in my shoulders and mentioned to my wife something wasn't right.  A bit later the thud of me hitting the floor alerted her to call an ambulance.  It turned out I was having a STEMI--ST elevated myocardial infarction.  Those are 90% fatal even if treated quickly.  The cardiologist said I was nearly dead when I arrived (although fully conscious.)  The fact that I was in otherwise good physical condition probably saved me.   I was in the  ICU for four days, and missed two weeks of work.  Being a trained occupational therapist, I knew recovery depended on me working hard in rehab, which I did.  I ended up being in better condition than some of the people who worked in rehab, LOL!  Since then I've gone hiking in the mountains at 10,000 ft. with a 30 pound pack twice, ridden my Trek FX2 bike 40+ miles on mountain trails, shoveled coal on steam engines, and go pheasant hunting all day in very thick cattails.  I can hike/bike/kayak all day long without problem, at any temperature or weather condition.  So, if you find yourself in dire straits, the answer might be to exercise yourself out of them. :)

Sorry to hear the news about the heart! As one heart patient to another: I hope you have good insurance and a resitance to pills! I am certain that I rattle when I walk, but it might just be in the head and not lower down. Though I don't know...

Were you alone, or were you with other people when it happened to you? I was lucky - I was in bed both times, and still had my wife before she got any of her problems. The first time she got an ambulance and the next time we didn't want to wait so she drove.

The main thing to take from these experiences is that medicine has progressed by leaps and bounds, and things that would probably have finished us some years ago no longer have to.

I wish you the very best of good luck, and don't give up on photography: I can tell you, it's the best therapy ever - if you already enjoyed it before. Look at it this way: Helmut Newton took pictures of himself in hospital after his heart attack.

"La più consistente scoperta che ho fatto pochi giorni dopo aver compiuto sessantacinque anni è che non posso più perdere tempo a fare cose che non mi va di fare."

That's from Jep Gambardella in La grande Bellezza, the new version of La Dolce Vita. It makes good sense to substituite the age with some life-changing events!

Get well! I deal with this on a daily basis and I can tell you the part you have no control over is gone (meaning you made it alive). Now you have to make the best of what's possible.

The advice that my cardio gave me was to walk as much as possible, as I found the strength, and now the aim is a minimum of one hour at a stretch per day. However, I was warned against overdoing things, and especially am I not to push wheelbarrows. Which was a bugger, because each winter I had to move a ton of wood from the car park to the apartment up to three times a winter. When that was banned, I had to pay the wood delivery guy to do that, and as we know, time is money...

Of course, I assume that the different types of heart problem have their own limitations on how life can be lived, so it doesn't make sense for me to imagine everybody has the same sort of restrictions. If anything, the worst remaining thing of which I'm aware is the beta blocker thing: I had to be reduced to the lowest input because it was cutting back on pressure and I was fainting sometimes at lunch, as the blood pump had to feed blood to the stomach to help digestion, thus cutting down on the supply it could pump upstairs to the brain. On top of that, betas are in the drops to reduce pressure in my eyes... all in all, nothing comes to bite your ass by itself - it always brings something to watch its back and deliver double whammies!

But, life goes on, and it's up to us to make the best of it we can.

Yes, that it is, but no way it will be his last one.

If one can write, then one can photograph, too. Incidentally, I thought making landscape pictures was supposed to relax people, not give them heart attacks!

Thanks Bernard, really they saved my life. When I thanked two of them, they told me I should rather thank the “Padreterno” (Eternal Father) ... But I think that the “Padreterno”=Mother Nature had decided (rightly, I have to admit) that it was (both spiritually and physically) enough with me and it was the wellcome blasphemy of the physicians  that really saved me.


My suggestion is to work very hard in rehab.  If they ask you to do x15 minutes on the treadmill at level 2, do x20 minutes at level 3 etc.  On Feb. 5 of this year I had an ache in my shoulders and mentioned to my wife something wasn't right.  A bit later the thud of me hitting the floor alerted her to call an ambulance.  It turned out I was having a STEMI--ST elevated myocardial infarction.  Those are 90% fatal even if treated quickly.  The cardiologist said I was nearly dead when I arrived (although fully conscious.)  The fact that I was in otherwise good physical condition probably saved me.   I was in the  ICU for four days, and missed two weeks of work.  Being a trained occupational therapist, I knew recovery depended on me working hard in rehab, which I did.  I ended up being in better condition than some of the people who worked in rehab, LOL!  Since then I've gone hiking in the mountains at 10,000 ft. with a 30 pound pack twice, ridden my Trek FX2 bike 40+ miles on mountain trails, shoveled coal on steam engines, and go pheasant hunting all day in very thick cattails.  I can hike/bike/kayak all day long without problem, at any temperature or weather condition.  So, if you find yourself in dire straits, the answer might be to exercise yourself out of them. :)

Many thanks for your suggestions, Kent. I go two days a week to the hospital were I have to work 30 minutes with the exercise bike (constant watts program) the same should I do every day at home + a 30 min walk and some breathing and free-body exercises. I'm not very diligent in homework, but I’ve bought an exercise bike with the constant watt program, today I’m going to assemble it.
I had a myocardial infarction with the rupture of the part of the papillary muscle that controls the mitral valve. After the first exams the physicians told me the diagnose and that they had to replace the mitral valve. After that they introduced me to the surgeon ("hello, good morning!"). I understood perfectly what they were saying, but not that I was dying, they were smiling all the time as if the surgery were a fun party. (One of the surgical team told me that I had been his teacher in the high school. Naturally I didn’t remember his name, but I was a little worried and asked him if I had treated him well, he assured me that I had been good to him ...). The surgeon spoke later with my wife and told her that the surgery was rather complex and they were really worried about my chances of survival during the operation.

Were you alone, or were you with other people when it happened to you? I was lucky - I was in bed both times, and still had my wife before she got any of her problems. The first time she got an ambulance and the next time we didn't want to wait so she drove.

The main thing to take from these experiences is that medicine has progressed by leaps and bounds, and things that would probably have finished us some years ago no longer have to.

I wish you the very best of good luck, and don't give up on photography: I can tell you, it's the best therapy ever - if you already enjoyed it before. Look at it this way: Helmut Newton took pictures of himself in hospital after his heart attack.

"La più consistente scoperta che ho fatto pochi giorni dopo aver compiuto sessantacinque anni è che non posso più perdere tempo a fare cose che non mi va di fare."

That's from Jep Gambardella in La grande Bellezza, the new version of La Dolce Vita. It makes good sense to substituite the age with some life-changing events!

Ciao -

Rob

Thanks Rob, when the heart attack started, I was going to school (on foot), when I arrived at school the staff called the ambulance. In Italy there is an excellent national health service (as long as it lasts), I don’t have to pay anything (but they tell you the cost of the treatment, that of my surgery was 28196 euros) and I don’t have to pay the pills (eight a day, even a beta-blocker and one against ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation, I had two episodes of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation in the ICU and in the semi-intensive department). If I will survive I won’t give up with photography (in the rehabilitation department, during a conference for operated patients, they suggested cultivating a hobby and expressly mentioned photography...). 

P.S. Si parva licet componere magnis, not only Helmut Newton took selfies... I too forced my wife to photograph me with the smartphone when I was in the rehab department (I was not as wired as in the intensive care unit anymore). See attachment..

Get well! I deal with this on a daily basis and I can tell you the part you have no control over is gone (meaning you made it alive). Now you have to make the best of what's possible.

Thanks Armand, I hope you are right, but the new valve has a flap a bit thicker than normal and a consequent moderate, not (yet) pathological, reduction of functionality (I think the flap was somehow reinforced, because the tissue on which it was implanted was severely damaged by papillary muscle rupture, I don’t asked the surgeon about this and the cardiologists are very vague in their answers)

From me, too. Best wishes for a speedy recovery and a peaceful return to photography. I have always enjoyed your contributions here, and if this turns out to be your last photograph, it is a fine and beautiful one.

Eric

Thanks Eric, the surgeon told me that I can certainly walk again in the mountains, I hope to return to the Costa de la Cros (slope of the cross), there are many alpine flowers that I have not yet photographed, I really miss them.


 
Eleven years ago I suffered a heart attack and was brought back from the brink with the aid of a defibrillator. The last eleven years have been the best of my life.

muntanela, I wish you well and good shooting!

Hello Rado and thank you. Unfortunately, those photos was not shot on film but with my nikon digital gear. Unfortunately because I would like to shoot film, MF film, but I don't have the money to buy what I want (mint Mamiya 7ii or Voigtlander bessa iii 667).

Yes, film is a lure, but the problem of cost (of film) can't be ignored - by myself, at least. I have a Nikon F3 that I bought after my F4 because I could never get the too bloody clever F4 to load properly first time. It humiliated me time after time, so back to a new 3 I went. But even owning a camera that's still practically new, film processing is pretty much impossible for me here and even transparencies are hard to get processed. Did I mention cost? Yes, I must have done that.

Worse, the problem of repairing old cameras is not going to go away or become cheaper to handle, so in the end, it's probably best to remember them with love, and stay digital.

Even for those where film costs are unlikely to matter at all, there comes a time when it's time to let go. For Hans Feurer, it was when Kodachrome became history. I shared his pain. I still have some in the freezer as part of the legacy for my family a couple of hundred years from now. I expect they will have to buy a new freezer by then...

I agree.
I still have my Pentax67 but I don't believe I will ever use it. I made my best pictures with it in film era. But times, they are achanging. Now we are using digital tools and can do much more than in those times (I never was satisfied with my slides and less with printed results). We can also imitate film rendering, if we want to do so.

Film isn't a lure for me at all. I still shoot film with a Nikon F65 but it can't adopt all the lenses I love like my 50f1.2. When I have a session I usually shoot both mediums and only one roll of 120 is sufficient (Ektar 100, Velvia 50, Portra 160). So I need only 10 film photos per big projects, that means 10 to 15 rolls per year, not a big deal. As for development, I send it to any lab I want, quality is always good and they scan high PPI 16-bit tiffs for not that much money. A friend gift me a GF645 for testing and I know this is what I want (in 667) this is why I know I need a compact foldable Film MF such as the GF 667 (or Bessa III 667), not a brick Pentax ;)

If someone here does not want his foldable MF (not wide angle) anymore, please I am willing to give him a new home.

I'm just guessing, but he looks to be scraping the last of his ice cream from the tub.

My association with musos is somewhat similar, but instead of delighting my sweet tooth, I make snaps of them (the musos, that is).

The inscrutability derives from the fact that eating ice cream whilst wearing a mask is a special talent beyond western comprehension.

Thanks for your link, Chris; the article was fairly as I remember the scene to have been, other than that Blow Up was seen, at the time, as something of a joke by we who had nursed our interest from an epoch a decade or so previously. To be specific, that scene where the two chicks and the hero destroy a roll of background paper by cavorting on it would never have happened on my watch: Colorama was just too bloody expensive to waste like that. I even used to put masking tape on all the girls' shoes just to avoid scuff marks. Photoshop might have saved me the trouble...

But yes, I do think that I wouldn't fit into the role today. Throughout my years at it, all the models were perfectly capable of doing their own hair and makeup even though the artists for the above functions already existed. I suppose it was a matter of geography and budgets, and as Brian Duffy explains in his video about the shoot for the iconic Bowie image, if you want to make it expensive, you have come to the right place!

Heroin chic and the younger set wasn't, I think, as much about style as about inability to work on a higher, more developed professional level. But death became a clean-up man, as in the Pulp Fiction sense, where today, memory of it features in insurance company commercials.

I believe the greatest change is caused by the slow death of print, coupled with the increased difficulty in trying to make a go of it (photography) as a viable profession as distinct from a trustafarian's delight. I just found a link, yesterday, to Sandra Lousada, a photographer whose work I enjoyed from way back; I discovered that she came from an established, showbiz/arts family... how do you compete? Which is not to denigrate the great work that she does, but unless doors are ajar, you have little to no chance of getting your foot across the threshold.

Thanks for thinking of me!

Pleasure Rob, "Blow Up" was always rather a self indulgent film I think and like any film the truth is perverted to serve its ends but it was and is great fun to watch. There is a short film somewhere that re-visits the locations in London that is interesting.

That's fine.  :)

Technical question: what's your take (if any) on the ZM Sonnar's focus shift behavior and the lens' RF calibration? My friend Bruce has one and finds focus to be spot on at f/2. I've read stuff online about it being optimized for f/2.8 by the manufacturer, yet other folks say f/2. Then there are folks who report sending their copies to Zeiss for f/1.5 optimizing.

(I picked up one of the Lomography Jupiter 3+s earlier this year, and was glad to find that it's on-the-nose wide open.)

Hi Dave, my copy - and I've tested it thoroughly on two M240 bodies - is absolutely on the nose at f/2 which suits me just fine as I find the DOF at f/1.5 is generally not quite deep enough and by f/2.8 the lens is loosing some of its character.
Title: Re: Fun with 35mm Camera images
Post by: Telecaster on March 15, 2018, 05:17:59 pm
Thanks, Keith. As much as I like the 50mm Sonnar character at f/1.5, it can be a bit much at times…and my old LTM copy as well as the new J3+ can be tricky to focus in the f/2-4 range on M cameras.

My friend Susan *says, "Why don't you get a different one calibrated for each stop! They're tiny."

Lovely shot and colours; for some reason, the style fits right into the Greek homes look too. Guess style is what we are and can't help doing.

Really good photography.

For some reason of perspective, it makes me feel it's a wider lens than 50mm. Guess it's the hands and feet.

It would be nice if you did use Without Prejudice, but of course, if you want to get more feedback, then posting your pix as individual ones within the general section where exists WP, will guarantee you a lot more comment.

My "problem" is that I'm somewhat averse to getting second-guessed, so I avoid that happening as much as possible, at least, regarding photographs.

The fact is I've only ever used one other digital camera/sensor brand which was Hasselblad and they are renowned for their colour.

Post by: ErikKaffehr on July 10, 2018, 02:14:48 pm
Hi,

This one was another snap shot. The Route de Crétes at Georges du Verdon was closed du to road works, but they would open it during lunch break from 12:00 to 15:00. My idea was to park below the road closure and wait for the road to open. But that parking lot was full. So I turned back and parked a bit below.
(https://photos.smugmug.com/Travel/Europe-2018/i-Wm7XSCd/0/1304501e/X3/20180608-_DSC9550-X3.jpg)

So that parking lot was full. Than I saw this very nice lady from Germany with Sonnenschirm and dog.

The next picture was from Drei Zinnen/Tre Cime in the Dolomites. One of my favourite spots. It was shot with a fisheye:

I like that image, because it is a bit different.

The reason I was there was to take this image:

Thank you gentlemen, very kind of you to take the time to write these kind words.

I just love these Awa Odori festivals, you feel such an energy in the terrible heat of the Japanese summer (it was still 37C when I took these).

As the face of the drummer tells, this is very challenging physically for them. They are top class athletes on top of being dance/music artists.

Honestly, taking these is child's play with a D5. Out of the 3,000+ images I took in 1+ hour, I had in excess of 90% of tack sharp images, 80% of them shot at f2.8. Most of those not in perfect focus were still usable and had been shot with the 300mm f4 PF that isn't quite as fast as the 70-200 f2.8 E FL AFwise.

The challenge is secure a good location amidst the crowd, to withstand the heat, not to bother your neighbors (too much), and then from a photography standpoint to capture the best timing and to find pleasing compositions with the background.

Cheers,
Bernard

Bernard, I love your festival photographs - definitely fun for you and subjects. The effort and enjoyment of the participants is obvious. Yes, the taiko drummers work up quite the sweat  - we have a local troupe that appears every Labor Day weekend at a Japanese festival (run by our botanical garden, which has a very nice 14 acre Japanese garden with pond, bridge, teahouse, etc). It is always 90F , 80%+ relative humidity that weekend.

Nice tree, Bernard.
The history behind the connection between St. Louis MO and Japan: Two of the WWII internment camps for Japanese Americans were in the southern Arkansas delta region, with approximately 17,000 internees between the two locations. St. Louis happens to be the closest large city and was an important rail terminus. Post-WWII, many Japanese Americans found farm land in Arkansas and Missouri, and many who wanted an urban location settled in St. Louis. I gather that the Midwest was much friendlier to Japanese Americans than the West Coast post-war.

Our sister city is Suwa.

Another lovely temple image.

The craftmanship, with wooden pegs instead of nails, is exquisite - also long-lasting. Our local Japanese garden hired Japanese traditional-method carpenters to build 2 buildings in the gardens. That's one thing about Japan, they know how to value the keepers of artistic and craft traditions, with the "living master" designation.

I have no easy way to put it online, but there is a color version.

Light wasn't that great. I personally prefer nice B&W tones to average colors when the light isn't appealing.

Post by: 32BT on September 14, 2018, 11:29:25 am
Well, yeah, b&w ftw, but it seems this is perhaps an application of shou-sugi-ban which isn't directly discernible in b&w, hence the question, unrelated to the aesthetics.

Hi,

This image is from my latest photo trip. It is a combo of two images, one with focus on the tree, with it's reflections, while the other is on the foreground. The two images were blended in Photoshop just using a simple gradient in the layer mask.

80 mm at f/11 on Sony A7rII with a Sigma 24-105/4 Art.

The lack of color aberrations is well demonstrated by this image.

Thanks Eric,

Very kind of you and much appreciated.

Yes, it is very rare nowadays for me to have the opportunity to really focus on photography only. It is almost always opportunistic, as a side activity next to a family outing or a business trip.

We do tend to pick scenic places as holiday destinations I guess and I am lucky to be sent to interesting locations for work, but all that explains the lower ratio of mountain scenery. I still love them just as much. ;)

Bernard

Yes, kind of happy about this one. ;)

The colors in your images are always such a treat for the eye.

Thanks, much appreciated.

That said much of the credit lies with files I'm getting out of camera using the Adobe Standard profile in ACR. The Leica Embedded profile tends towards over saturation, particularly the reds.

Yes, Bernard, that area is a distraction.  And I have already fixed it before printing the photograph :)  Good eye Bernard!

Perhaps because a great many digital cameras are 35mm. The original poster of this thread indicated he wanted a place to post images that are less than "Medium Format."

35mm is the width of the film that fits in a 35mm film camera. There is nothing 35mm in a digital camera.

35mm is the width of the film that fits in a 35mm film camera.

Why not let the op decide?

Until then it's all getting a bit too pedantic for me.

Actually I've just looked at page one and isn't the very first picture, one taken by the op, one taken with a DSLR?

Right... and is the size of the film area of those not 24x36 which happens to be the exact same size used by so called full frame DSLRs?

Is that a strange coincidence or the result of the fact they use... the exact same lenses too?

I think there might be a hint there...

LEDs on cars are pulsed so they can achieve greater brightness than their dissipation power rating would otherwise allow by overdriving the LEDs but then limiting the pulse duration so the power dissipation over time remains within the limits of the chips, and the magic of persistence of vision makes them appear to be at the greater brightness continuously.  You'll often see they flicker terribly when seen on video because the frequency isn't a multiple of the camera's frame rate.

Oh, I see what you mean now. I hadn’t blown it up big enough to see the pulsing. LED lights are always pulsed, so the flickering is the pulsed light in motion. (I shot automotive lighting for OSRAM/SYLVANIA for about 10 years. We learned all sorts of interesting things about auto lighting.)

Gut reaction, have been away from the forum for a while...

In any case, everybody seems either to oversaturate or undersaturate (B&W conversion, that is), but many people oversaturating their landscape shots seem to go to denial mode about it. Just check the position of that slider before claiming "that is exactly as it looks like".

I oversaturate also, but only slightly, and admit it. I am Petrus, and I am an oversaturator. In AA parlance...

The highest level of saturation I allow myself to add is 5 in C1 Pro, but that is in probably less than 10% of my images.

And is far less than what we used to get with Velvia for instance...
