Keith,

I hope Guy doesn't mind. But I can replace "Fun" with "Having a great time" if you (or someone else) finds it more appropriate.

Your image is refreshing for the mind, if you permit me to say so.

As this thread is about images, I add another one of mine:

I'm shooting film through the H1 at the moment and bought some out of date Ilford HP5+ (Expired Dec 2001) just to run some cheap film though and ripen a batch of Harvey Panthermic 777 developer. The backing paper has "printed through" and made a real mess of the emulsion. I posted a few shots to show how bad it was on Flickr.
This one was picked for Explore and has 7,500 views and 69 "likes", and we worry about sharpness  ;D

Erik, just yesterday I was thinking of starting the same thread but didn't want to step on Guy's toes at GetDPI.

But as it's here...

(http://www.keithlaban.co.uk/flagellum.jpg)

Well I don't own a patent on the fun threads. Another name maybe better but also folks I helped start GetDPI but I do not own it anymore. I sold my shares for personal reasons to fund my wife's health care for the last 5 years and she is still fighting the issue. So I'm free to be anywhere I want and teach anywhere someone wants to hire me. I am still partners with Jack on GetDPI workshops which we are planning one in February.

Let me make a suggestion though post what gear you shot it with. It does help others and if you get into a technical discussion than just start a thread on it.

But I would like to thank those that thought of me first. That's pretty classy

Guy,

Nice to hear from you. It may be that you don't have a patent on "Fun with…", but may be you have copyright.

Thanks for sharing on your personal life, I hoped that you were over the hill, but it seems your wife still fights on. Sad to hear. I have some friends who have been there and returned.

I wish you, and your family well. And I may add I feel you are a great guy to have around…

Best regards
Erik

Getting serious.

The image below is an old one from Drei Zinnen/Tre Cime de Lavaredo in the Dolomites. It is a gravestone for an Alpini (Mountain Ranger) who lost his life in WW I.

Seeing this image makes me sad:
(http://echophoto.smugmug.com/Themes/Berg-dal-och-vatten/i-j899DC5/0/X3/20100712-20001201-DreiZinnen01-X3.jpg)

Now that image was shot with a Pentax 67 on Fuji Velvia 2002. I revisited that place 2013, but the gravestone lost one of it's three peaks, and looks like this now:
(http://echophoto.smugmug.com/Themes/Berg-dal-och-vatten/i-t9fx7MZ/0/M/20130821-_DSC2677-M.jpg)

This is the place depicted on the gravestone:

Lol. Hell English is supposed to be mine but you would never know it. Lol

Thanks for the warm wishes. Happy Holidays everyone.

Btw just FYI from a old dog that's been in this business for many years and goes with everything in life. Photography is fun and when we take it way too serious than most hobbyists walk away from it. As someone that sees the backend of forums . It's sad when people just give up because they are treated like crap and feel not worthy enough to participate. There will always be arm chair quarterbacks and heavy tech talk. Take my advice to survive forums one must learn sometimes to just change the channel and look for another thread that appeals to you more.

Okay enough of that go have fun and post some great shots folks. End of day the only thing that ever counts is the image. How you got there is meaningless

Ok, I'll play.

Winter last year was long, and it was abnormal to have no leaves even starting to come out by May 11. I went out one morning trying to capture the sense of how late in spring it was with no leaves, but it was, of course, still pretty cold so the fog was thick that morning. Nothing spectacular, but it was indeed fun!

(http://www.davechewphotography.com/temp_images/DChew_140511_006665.jpg)

Just to give you all an idea of normal, here is an image after a typical winter in 2012; same road, one full month earlier. The leaves were half out.

(http://www.davechewphotography.com/temp_images/DChew_120411_002301.jpg)

Both images shot w/ Alpa STC, SK150, IQ180. Rise on both, probably ~ 10mm

Nice images in this thread. At the moment I do mostly landscapes and more abstract shots for hopefully an exhibition, next year. The landscape is north-west Friesland (Netherlands) and I titled the abstract 'Dante Was Here'.

Thanks for the kind words. The scene is on the bay, although it looks like the ocean. We live in paradise on Long Beach Island, NJ. We got killed with Sandy, and were homeless for 6 months. The scene was NOT Sandy, but a rather routine storm we get here often.
Very best regards

May I be so bold to refer you to my web site to see my Father 's work. He died when I was three, and he was only 29. His negatives were lost for 72 years, and recently recovered, and returned to me. I only saw a few of his original prints; although he was published nationally in several Salon magazines. When I saw his negatives for the first time, I thought I was looking at my own negatives. We photographed the same scenes on LBI, IN THE SAME STYLE!! I scanned his medium format negs with a Nikon Coolscan 8000 and dodged, burned the edges and corners, and printed in the style and spirit of my Father, whom I do not remember. If you go to the link, and see my Father's work, please also look at my B&W page, and look at my B&W images.....do they look like my Dad's?

Here is a situation where I can easily show of what 51mp really adds up to.  Context, the Seattle Seahawks refer to their fans as the 12th Man, and a lot of their symbolism is based around it.  Their fans signed a very large flag back in 2005 when they went to the Superbowl (and lost) but it hangs with honor in their stadium and the players all pass it on the way out to the field.

To put it to scale, here is a 6'8" (2.03m) gent walking past it (http://blog.seahawks.com/2010/11/30/photoblog-seahawks-fall-to-chiefs-42-24/20101129eye_02/) First image is the whole flag, with the second image a 100% zoom in.  Shot hand held with the 645Z and DFA 55/2.8.

The Causeway Shack on the way to Long Beach Island had long been an Icon. It slowly disintegrated, and Hurricane Sandy finished it off. I photographed it  all throughout the years. I went through some of my old negatives and re-visited them. Some had boring skies, and I never printed them in my chemical color darkroom. The foregrounds were made with a Pentax 645 film camera and color negative film. The skies are more recent, and made with a Pentax 645D. I scanned the color negatives, and combined them with the 645D skies. The flight of geese was also added. I drew them with pencil on a piece of paper, scanned them, and used them for a bit of nostalgia.

Dave,

Thanks for nice words! I live in Nyköping Sweden. What you see is the old brewery, a part of Nyköping where a lot of artisans and artists have their workshops.

Just behind me is the Nyköping castle, where the Nyköping Banquet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nyköping_Banquet) has taken place and queen Christina of Sweden (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christina,_Queen_of_Sweden) has grown up.

For the scientifically interested René Descartes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/René_Descartes) was the selected as math tutor for Queen Christina. It was no easy job, with lessons scheduled 5 am (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/René_Descartes#Death). Cartesian coordinates are named after René Descartes.

Best regards
Erik

Pentax 645 film camera, May 1995. Color negative film, probably Kodak Ektacolor Commercial. Original prints were 16"x20" Type C prints I made in my home darkroom. Later prints are digital prints made from the scanned negatives. The digital prints allowed me to remove some distracting overhead phone/electrical wires. I used Cokin graduated tobacco and graduated fog filters in camera, way before digital manipulation.

Fantastic series of photos, Dave. If you hadn't pointed out that they were digitally composited, we'd never have guessed.

Your earlier one - that one of the bay, handheld in near-hurricane force winds - is that also a composite? The rain is windblown left-to-right, while the flag and waves seem to be windblown right-to-left.

Yes, Ray, it is a composite. Bit of a dilemma . Polly's Dock, one of my favorite spots to photograph here is on the bay, in a cove, so the wind swirls. That day, the bay looked like the ocean with the big waves. The gulls always face into the wind, for a quick take off. But the composition begged for left to right rain, which I accentuated . It was raining, and blowing, but actually I do not recall exactly where from. The background sky was also added. It was taken in the same or close to the same spot, on a different day. I collect skies, and catalogue time of year, time of day, and direction, so they match. I actually did the same with my darkroom, but, albeit much more difficult, as it involved making foreground and background cardboard masks, changing negatives in the enlarger, in the dark via the safelight.
Thanks for your kind words
Dave

Ray,

Unfortunately not really, although I guess Tycho Brahe and Per Brahe may have been relatives.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Per_Brahe_the_Younger

Just to say, the first time have observed "Brahe Hus" I also thought about Tycho Brahe. I guess that name comes easy to mind if one is interested in astronomy. That said, my interest in astronomy has faded a lot.

Just to mention, that HST of yours may or may not count as a medium format camera, but it seems you have taken quite a few nice pictures with it :-)

Best regards
Eik

Anything to do with Tycho Brahe, the greatest pre-telescopic astronomer? [Whoops, more geekery  :D]

Another composite. Foreground made with Pentax 645 film camera and color negative film. Sky made with 35mm film camera, and color neg film. Both negatives scanned and digitally composited. The foreground had a boat in the lower left corner, which I thought was distracting, so I removed it. First image is the composite, the second image shows the foreground shot I used for the composite.

Nice Erik. Could you share what software you used to stitch? Did you use a "nodal" point slide plate of some kind? I have hesitated to try stitching, as I have no adapter. When I tried it by just taking two over lapping frames, ignoring nodal point, it was not successful.
Thanks for sharing

Title: Re: Fun with medium format (Artsy thread)
Post by: ErikKaffehr on December 04, 2014, 11:01:53 pm
Hi Dave,

It depends on the subject. I have a nodal slider (like the one below) but don't use it very often. It is needed if there are things in the foreground, but I seldom have problems with that.

Most of my stuff are not panoramas but more like extended images, which just need small movements, what I would call "uncropping". Do it often on the Hasselblad. One reason I do it may be that the viewfinder mask (from 56x56 mm to 49x37 mm) shows essentially four different crops (horisontal, vertical,56x56 and 37x37), that gives you ideas. The other factor is that I only have primes, so I use stitching instead of zooming.

The tripod head I use is the Arca-Swiss D4, with a levelling plate on the tripod. The D4 has rotation both at base and top. So I level the head and use rotation at the base. That rotation works well with camera tilted up or down.

Most of the stitching I do in Photoshop directly from Lightroom, select the images -> edit -> merge to panorama in Photoshop. That works well in simple cases.
For more complex work I use Autopano Pro.

The one below was probably shot on 50 mm, and it is composed of two exposures, with the second one containing a lot of sky. The stitching line was along the roofs of the buildings. Here I essentially composed for the buildings and the trees, but I realised the sky is really nice and made another exposure to include it. No nodal slide needed. Stitched in Photoshop
(http://echophoto.smugmug.com/Other/Technical/P45/i-ksPTXcL/0/S/20141130-CF045901-S.jpg).

This one was a composite of three vertical exposures, intended to get a wider angle, moving backwards would change the composition. I don't know if I used my nodal slide. This image was most about getting the tree in the background inside the image. Foreground was not very critical. Stitched in Photoshop ( I guess).
(http://echophoto.smugmug.com/Other/Technical/P45/i-V69sLSj/0/S/20140504-CF044879-S.jpg)

The one below was just a cropped down image (I just found out) I also have a stitched version. It is shown as an attachment below. That image was probably stitched in AutopanoPro.
(http://echophoto.smugmug.com/Other/Technical/P45/i-fxNx8zG/0/S/20140812-CF045436-S.jpg)

This one was also stitched, two horizontal images, the second one including the upper part of the boat. In this case I only needed the top part of mast and that would be an easy stitch in any program.
(http://echophoto.smugmug.com/Other/Technical/P45/i-vBj25vb/0/S/20140420-CF044780-2-S.jpg)

Thanks Erik for the stitching information. You have inspired my to try again.
Although the below is not a stitch, I made three exposures. I print them 16"x24" and hang them with narrow mats and thin black frames to make what we call a "triptych". They do look nice as a wall hanging. But here perfect overlaps were not required to make it work.
Best regards, and thanks again for the info.

Aloha,

The mountain is mount Fitz Roy in Patagonia
On the Argentinian side.
At just over 11,000 feet Fitz Roy and the neighboring peaks of the
Southern Andes dominate the Valley.
In April of 2013 I hiked up into the valley and camped a shot for
Ten amazing days.
I liked the Ilford pre set in nik, the blacks
Have a deep ink blue influence toning to them.
The blacks are super saturated while still holding detail

From about 100 yards away, this is another shot during that same morning.

Fun with close ups.
A recent gift of a pinhole adapter for Leicas cried out for a macro shot.
P20 Hasselblad V 120mm Makro Planar + 55mm extension
The fun was lighting it.
The hole is off centre left hand side and down a bit. Capture One found it straight away, with the underexposure tool, as a blue dot !!

Merry Christmas!

First shot with my new H4D-50, back mounted on a Linhof Techno using SK47XL. Won't be much shooting for a while as my external Silvestri battery is bad, it only holds power for 10 minutes or so. Due to the hollidays it will take a while before I get a replacement. The back seems to handle the -20C temperature without problems though.

Meanwhile I'll try to figure out the calibration data format in the 3FR file format, unless Hasselblad sends me the spec (unlikely, but I've at least asked). The attached image is processed in RawTherapee, but converted to FFF first in Phocus to get calibration data applied. RT opens 3FR too but as calibration data is not applied the result is not that good.

I am not the original poster but I reckon that, if this topic is to have some relevance, the images posted should have obvious artsy-ness that takes them beyond the images posted in the Non-professional work topic. Some building pics have been posted in this topic which I consider belong to the Non-professional work topic because I could not see any degree of artsy-ness about them, competent though they were as images.

But, your image is, in my opinion, a really impressive artsy image and truly qualifies to be exhibited under this topic. Well done!

I would like to see only images with obvious artsy-ness posted under this topic in future. There are other topics in this forum for non-artsy images!

I'm confused. The topic has "Artsy thread" in its title even though you say you removed it and, if you just wanted to throw up images, what's wrong with using the Non-professional works topic?

If you offer choices without clear distinctions, people tend not to participate because they cannot decide which choice is for them!

Eric, I think the confusion is in the title which is "Fun with medium format (Artsy thread)". The use of the word "artsy" to my mind means some boundaries (whether in subject matter or processing) have been deliberately pushed beyond the norm (if there is such a thing).

I now think you wanted your topic to allow images to be posted without discussions about technical matters. That is, you wanted to get members to just focus on posting images.

If that is the case, why not rename the topic to "Images without technical discussion" or "Post your images without worrying about the technical bits" or "Post your images just for fun" (that is my preferred suggestion)?

Above all, delete "artsy" from the title.
Roger

Very nice Jim.  Traveling along the St. Lawrence is a wonderful trip.  You must have visited Tadoussac, if you were at the fjord.  Just north of the village is one of the most enchanting campgrounds I've ever visited: Paradis Marin.  It's a destination for whale watchers, kayakers and divers. There the lovely shoreline consists of exposed granite of the Canadian Shield, at night you can fall asleep listening to whales sound and in the morning a local baker delivers fresh bread and croissants.

Here's a shot from our campsite, taken with a Pentax 67 and 35mm fisheye:

And some whale-watchers (645 with 500mm):

Pentax 67ii, 45mm @ f22, 1/4s Portra 400 @ 160

Something went wrong in the developing tank and ruined two rolls but I kind of liked this one, the DR was defenitly too much for the d800 but portra played nice.

Hi,

Nice picture. Your pictures are always interesting.

Yes, I would agree that the 40/4 CF FLE produces very sharp results, at least if it is optimally used.

Klicking on either of the two image takes you to the full size scans (big file warning).

Time to bump the thread I think.
Hasselblad H1 80mm HC

A misty day, low cloud at a local Country Park Beacon Fell Lancashire UK.

Although not actually very high high the visibility of the fell made it an ideal location for a warning beacon. A beacon on the fell has been recorded as early as 1002 and it formed part of a chain of beacons to warn of the approach of the Spanish Armada in 1588. Planted with conifers as part of a water management scheme for a reservoir.

Still fighting on the Hass front - might have to keep it due to things like the HTS.  3 shots tall (shift up, center, down) , 26 shots wide (Novoflex Pano VR II) where it's 18 from the left, then reposition and get 8 from the right.  H4D-50 with HTS and 150mm (yes, it isn't on the list of approved lenses, but works if you don't fully shift :).  2% 'crop' - full size is 94265x13299 or 1,253MP.

I really wish I had a live view idea of my framing on that image. It feels off balance to me.  I should have chosen a wider lens or panned right.

So many nice rich images here! Nice work everyone!
I'm pretty new to MF. This spring I inherited my first MF, a Voigtlander Bessa RF (and a bunch of other neat old cameras). Then not long ago I picked up a Pentax 645. These photos are from the first roll through each of these wonderful machines.

I ran Porta 400 through the Bessa and Tri-X 400 in the 645. The Bessa isn't exactly user friendly but I love how small it folds up. I'd love a MF digital folder that could be that small!

The 645 was with the 75/2.8, the only lens I own until the 45/2.8 I just ordered today (Pentax sale at KEH!) arrives.

I got these developed and scanned (budget scans) at TheDarkroom.com.

If those are representative of what you're getting with the IQ160, you should buy one.  Really spectacular.

Thanks very much and I can say without reservation that these shots are indicative of the quality you can get with the IQ160. They were shot with the Schneider-Kreutznach 75-150 lens. The camera body was the DF+. Now with the new camera body I'm sure the shooting experience would be quite different. The DF+ body was not to my liking, but still better than the DF which I had most of the time during the one year I had the camera system on loan. I was instructor on a Phase One workshop in the Dolomites in September 2013 and I can say that the group was stunned about the views they got there. We had some very nice weather too which doesn't hurt :) If you browse the Dolomites folders and the Selected landscapes folder you will see photos shot with not only the Phase One camera but also Canon 1Ds III and 5D III and Nikon D800E and D810.

The image may not be remarkable:

As a quasi-professional cynic, I suspect that this is a superlative photographer working with a decent camera, rather than the other way round :)

We've now seen people on this forum who actually make nice images with MF gear. What will be the next surprise? Politicians elected to solve problems who actually achieve something?

Erik,

 A guy who was walking there just emailed me this picture, it looks remarkably like yours, but I think the guy has some sort of contrasty film, he seemed to paint a bit of light into the sea and shadows into the valleys, and also he seemed to have a camera with a different aspect ratio, leading to an interesting rising diagonal up to a tree at the very top. I hope you will forgive me if I post his picture, which of course has a very different character from yours, and which I will remove at once if it offends you ...

PS. In the days when I was still selling prints, I would spend around 20 hours retouch on the file of every print I wanted to sell. This here just gives an indication of one direction one might want to explore.

I don't think we have a retouch forum here. But it's something we could do - you know, post a pic in a thread, and see what various people do with it. I think most of us in this forum are pretty good at the craft of photography, but finding the ideas to keep from being repetitive is a creative rather than technical issue. Somebody like you is already so good at the technical aspects that he is technically capable of capturing any image he can visualize ...

You could post the Raw from that image and ask people to have a go at retouching it, although I think the Tiff would be already more than good enough. I do wonder what Hans Kruse would do with it.

Thank you Edmund, I did have an angle choice and the reflections chose this one for me, it was the engineers I was after, just that touch of human interest, for once I'm pretty happy with a shot, usually they are better in my head.

At the moment I see everything in squares and as an exercise in cropping - maybe with the space you cropped off on top you could bring the engineers into the center somehow like this - with more space above one could have a larger part of the left fuselage included with the roundel, or probably the whole large tail.

Your image is so sharp and so well lit that you could certainly go for a web version cropped like this, and probably a decent print.

I also like square format very much.  But in this case I very much prefer Chris's original panoramic rendition.  For me, the receding symmetry of the airplanes is what makes the image.

That's a rocking great shot, Chris!

I completely agree that Chris's rendition achieves the aim of the shot as a panoramic overview.

My (visual) remark was just that one can crop an interesting side-bar out of this picture, which has a completely different, directly engaged, emphasis.

There doesn't have to be ONE image from one capture - there can be several reworks (and hopefully several sales).

In fact one of the reasons for using a hirez system is precisely that croppability that allows one to repurpose images.

I'm obviously not going to teach someone like Chris how to compose a shot - but I can point to the fact that he might extract an additional subproduct.

I would appreciate Eronald reinstating the crop he posted, it adds to the discussion, which is appreciated from all.

I have gone back and re-processed as I would, if I had taken a longer lens or the converter I had the day before, and taken a second shot on the engineers.
I have also posted a small jpeg of the original out of camera, with film profile std and Profile P45+ Flash WB. I processed using Flash Easy Grey as I rather like that at the moment, I thought seeing the original, which was constrained by spectator ropes would also inform. I had the panorama in mind and repeated the shot from behind the the tails but the light was much less favourable at that angle.

Eronald inspired Square  :) Which I think is what he meant, and I agree, given the file size that allows multiple images , I hope of worth, to be extracted.

Chris, thanks for your indulgence. As Klaban points out, the -reposted- square doesn't really work. On the other hand, it does show us that the sky can be an actor in such an image, and that we may not need to show *all* the planes to get the concertina effect. So it may be time to crop another rectangle with more planes and retouch that sky in some way.

I find I need to play with my own images, crop them etc, and see what I should have seen on site, in order to actually then be able to compose on site later.

One of the notable facts about this forum may be that we've all been around for some time, and that we're all pretty good at the technical aspects of getting the shot. But in order to grow, it may be time for the more technical of us -like me- to rattle the bars of the creative cage a bit more. Cropping is one way of getting something for nothing - a bit like the fun one has in one's younger years of eating a whole meal at home from the snacks one has brought back from a party :)

I had a friend, an old guy who since committed suicide, he'd been employed as the art director for a bunch of soft-core porn and also some arty picture magazines eg. Lui. He taught me that one can take carefully composed images and ruthlessly crop their beautiful perspectives into detail shots that in the end have a much stronger impact. It's easy to hang on to that image one saw and captured, but sometimes the crop is stronger in the end.

A 5 image stitch from a Pentax 645z + 150mm/2.8 lens - tifo display in Seattle, WA, USA.  We lost the match, but I created 8 more of these in the 800MP to 1,800MP range from this vantage point and 7 others around the stadium in a compass patern.  Stitching with 51mp images sucks - especially when doing multiple rows of live action.  Still, I want to try it with an 80MP setup with a 200/210/240mm lens :D  And a Mac Pro to stitch it together...  The image is of the Washington State flag, done holding up solid 30"x30" pieces of plastic.  Lots of planning in the layout and execution of this.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for posting. In recent time I have shooting very little with my Hasselblad V/P45+ kit as I now have a Sony A7r, that I am exploring now. The A7rII gives similar image quality as the Hassy kit. Also, it gives me full T&S with all Hasselblad lenses.

But, I enjoyed shooting with the classic V-system/P45+ kit, so I hang on with it and will hopefully shoot some more nice images with it, too.

Just to say, I see a tiny advantage to the V-system over the A7rII when pixel peeping, but I don't feel I would see that on any pictures making it to the wall.

Best regards
Erik

Hi Erik
Enjoy is most pertinent, I have tried the A7 series and did not enjoy using it. I can see why for commercial use it is a very useful tool but I shoot for pleasure, mine mainly, and that was not working for me. I don't expect that to influence anyone at all nor should it. I still shoot lots of B/W film, 35mm, again because I enjoy doing it, no one pays me to do it and that's the way I like it.
I am delighted it is working for you, I never felt you fully jelled, or perhaps produced what you wanted, with the 'blad and now going back to it occasionally with no pressure it will bring you more satisfaction. That we have such choices available is the blessing. Keep well.

Hi Chris,

I feel I am a bit fallible to enjoying shooting the latest kit. Right now I have a HCam Master TSII that gives me T&S for my Hasselblad lenses on my Sony A7rII.

Another point is that I often shoot on vacation, and that means flying to places with carry on limitations.

What I think, right now, is that the P45+ still yields a tiny advantage in image quality over the Sony A7rII. But the Sony can do a lot of things…

I guess that I still enjoy the Hassy V/P45+, but I feel that using it is more about handcraft than image quality. The reason I bought it was that I had a few MF lenses and I wanted to make full use of them. And that reason still applies.

Here is my latest image with the P45+
(http://echophoto.dnsalias.net/ekr/Articles/Shoots/FunWithMFD/20151018-CF047027-Pano_small.jpg)

Hopefully it is not the last one… I honestly don't know. It is about making images I like and having the right gear at the right place at the right time. But all that doesn't help if I don't have the urge/lust to take pictures. Motivation is a great part of it!

Best regards
Erik

I think that the autumn shot that you have posted here is gorgeous -- luscious yellow/oranges and the deep reddish-brown seen in some Scandinavian rural areas and the faded reds and pinks of the smaller trees.

Not sure where to post this, but thought it would be best here. 

Due to the recent spat about pros vs. amateurs and creative briefs, I wanted to share a project I am currently planning, which is a personal project but I am approaching in a professional manner.  It will intertwine interiors, beverage and lifestyle, and, hopefully, provide some continuity in my portfolio between my beverage & architectural work. 

In the most primitive form, the creative brief is:
Create a series of three, maybe four, location images focusing on a liquor (probably a Tequila) with two models (a male and a female) becoming flirtatious over drinks.  These images need to be in a bar and lit in a moody cinema-graphic fashion.   

And so the process began. 

One evening I took a walk around Philadelphia to scout out locations.  After a while I spotted the perfect restaurant, a nice dark French brasserie in a corner building with a terrace on both sides.  The bar was situated near the terrace and had porch doors right of it.  The interior was relatively large, it was not overcrowded with tables, and would provide plenty of room to work.  This was the perfect location. 

So a couple days later I walked in with my portfolio, offered them a free day of photography if they allowed me to use their location.  They agreed, and, surprisingly, will give me access at night. 

Yesterday I met with the restaurant again to discuss what they want, what I want, and took a couple scouting images. 

The images that will be created for (my part of) this project are:
1.  A wide vertical image of the right side of the bar with the product on the bar and two models standing at the side.  I will probably have the women be the aggressor, since a male aggressor always looks hypersexual.  The image below is an approx. angle, but the final will be closer, cropping out the chandelier and showing more of outside.
2.  An image looking over the bar towards the terrace with the product on the bar and the models outside.  Product will be in focus, the exterior will not.
3.  An image captured from almost opposite the product shot, showing the models walking out onto the terrace.  This will be much more lifestyle image, and I will capture a few “wider” verticals and “tighter” horizontals. 

The first two will be shot with my technical camera and Rodie 55mm.  The last will be shot with the DF+, switching between an 80mm & 120mm.  I also already have the lighting for each image mapped out, but I’ll save that description for after the images are created. 

Now that I have access and a refined brief, tomorrow will be spent getting all the gears in motion.  Hope to shoot in two or three weeks; should be fun!

Sunset over Mt Rainier, with Seattle and the Puget Sound off to the right with Mt St Helens peaking up over the left shoulder.  420MP and I think I need to order a slightly smaller roll of paper, as I don't want to waste the 53"/63" wide stuff and make one that's 31' long without a place to hang it.  Still cleaning up dust in the snow, though I got all the dust in the sky.  Getting down on my own sucked - the lifts stopped running 3.5h before the shot, and as it's spring skiing now, I had nothing but chunky ice all the way down.

Thanks for the comments! Kind of a lucky shot and I would have tried to frame it as part of the landscape if I had a wider lens (soon).

For those interested in a professional perspective on photography, here is an update on that personal project I wrote about last month. 

Date, time, models, MUA/stylist, props, prop stylist, assistants and grip/lighting rental has all been coordinated.  See attached for an updated brief. 

I will be meeting with the restaurant tomorrow to sort out the final details.  Also, all of my lighting is completely mapped out; I only need to test a few gel combinations against each other and tungsten sources to finish. 

Really looking forward to this one.

Tonight is the night, and it is crunch time.  Packing the car, heading out to pick up the last bit of grip and rental, eating dinner and then heading to the location. 

In case anyone is wondering, here are the lighting diagrams.  I should have the finished images next week.

Thanks for sharing the details of your shoot, Joe.  I agree with Edmund, watching it unfold is fascinating!

Question... I know you mentioned this is a personal project, but in your more conventional commercial work, do you normally get handed a pretty much completed creative brief, is that something you provide yourself after consulting with the client, or is it a back-and-forth-collaboration?

Thanks again for pulling aside the kimono...

How strange this all feels, Joe.

For my part, I'd simply cart along what one guy could (then!) handle and play it entirely by ear. The very thought of 'planning' photography like that would kill it for me.

Different strokes...

Post by: JoeKitchen on May 10, 2016, 03:18:28 pm
Jeff, that depends.  On all of my architectural work, there is collaboration on what we will be photographing, but most of the time I shoot the image I wanted to shoot.  I tend to get very excited about my images and the client kind of goes along with it.

Other times, I am handed a brief with everything already figured out.

Yes, Rob, this kind of planning is not for everyone.  I did here because I had limited time, needed to move fast and efficient.  Also, having it this well planned makes me more at ease.  (Last night though, I was rushing due to time constraints.  I had an hour less then what i thought.)

Aloha,

looking a Paul's images from Arkansas; I'm reminded of how incredible the improvement to the dynamic range of digital  cameras has gotten over the years.
I don't know how much the shadows are opened up in post, not that its an issue, it would be interesting to know if the shadows were deeper, then opened in post.
I started shooting digital with a canon ids mark 2, even then you could open the images up a good bit in post but, you could tell. 

Anyway Arkansas; who knew! nice location, nice shots!

Hi,  Thanks for the kind words.  Arkansas has some nice spots for sure.  The shadows are opened up a huge amount.  So far all the IQ100 images I have posted have been from a single shot, no bracketing for exposure.  I actually do bracket when I shoot, but the range on the IQ100 is very impressive.  At base ISO of 50 to around 200 pushing 2.5 stop to even 3 is very possible.  What is also impressive is just how well the highlights will hold up, as I tend to still expose for the shadows and push the highlights.  Very good recovery there also.

One more from late August of this year.  3 part horizontal pan, 35LS XF IQ100 at 200 ISO.  A bit of problematic shot due to sky blend, (pure blue always tend to be that way) and I would have preferred a few clouds.  Per a good suggestion from Wayne Fox, I will try a LCC following such a series in the future to see if I can keep the edges a bit more open.  Raw developed in C1, Pano in LR.

Here is link to actual image, shows a bit larger on my site.

Walking "Sentiero degli dei" on the Amalfi coast. Shot using Pentax 645N and 33-55mm zoom at 33mm, both f9.5 and 1/90. Scanned at 4000 dpi on a Microtek 120TF. I had to desaturate a bit, actually, as Ektar 100 + polarizer gives very saturated colors. From previous experience Ektar is almost useless with skintones, but it works with landscape, as long as there are no people close up!

A four image stitch using the Phase One XF IQ3 100 back. Pretty lucky to get this image before the scene was gone.

Wow, great catch! Looks like my neck of the woods, Kebler Pass.

Do you ever have trouble stitching rainbow shots? I find sometimes they do not line up correctly due to some kind of optical phenomenon that can make stitching difficult.

Hi Matt

Thanks for the kind feedback. No issues with the stitch. I was nervous after I shot the images if I had got it. I only got the four images. By the time I was done the rainbow was losing its glow. Rainbows and big scenics are not my typical subject matter. I mostly shoot intimate tree panoramics. Although, hard to ignore it when it is a scene like this one. I knew where to be when the rainbow started and rushed to get to this spot, just in time.

Paul, I have to say I find your phrase "favorite stand of sweetgums" hilarious. Because it is a fast-growing tree, it gets planted as a suburban landscaping tree - and then the property owners are @$&&%$#$&(*@!^$%$ at the fruit (spiky balls which bounce all over and catch on stuff when you try to rake them off the lawn). To my mind, the only good sweetgum is a wild sweetgum, and those are lovely trees. Here's the wiki for those who don't know this tree.

The last image (Sal's) is just a color test. Good god this thing passed with flying... colors. PUN.

I paid $1000 for the lens. I figured it's a first version, etc. It's an N. Unexpected to say the least.

Not a pro either so take my comment with a grain of salt!  The bottom right corner and to a lesser degree the top right corner of the picture bothers me more than the center.  Having the black void there makes the image feel incomplete/unbalanced to me.

This was a test image for me.  Since I'm shooting more with XF100 I'm finding I need focus stack more often.  I was curious how well it would handle this subject and it seemed to do quite well.

Your are right I'm sure, that's what happens when you grab the camera and don't really "arrange" the shot properly.

Can't afford the 30mm fish eye for the Hasselblad so I have to make do with what's available.
I find the 60mm CF to be just right for me as a walkaround lens, the 50mm too wide (and heavy) the 80mm too long so 60mm is the Goldilocks lens.
Handles the highlights well I think wide open.

Real estate, crowds and events, anywhere near an airport or where the cops are likely to give you a really bad time.  Or when you wanted to do a time lapse where a drone just wouldn't have the battery power.  I'm really tempted to get one, but since it's available for rent to me locally I'll grab it when needed.  I almost put my Hasselblad up there, mostly due to the better mirror up functionality.

2 part horizontal pan, Phase One IQ3100, 35mm LS, C1 raw conversion and LR pano.

Going up the 4,200 feet vertical with the Hasselblad with my very fit walking companion was a bit tough, but we were rewarded by very nice conditions at the top and a great atmosphere in the hut. ;)

One of my favorite restaurants in Kyoto, the wonderful Bistro Grelot in Gion, nearby Taisho-in. This French restaurant ran by 2 Japanese chefs is simply incredibly good and a truly amazing value. You'd have to pay 2-3 times as much to get something of the same quality in Paris or Brussels.

Nice Bernard. Looks like you are enjoying the 90hr-sw.

Thanks Dave,

Yep, pretty amazing lens. In combination with the sensor it is an amazing combo for this kind of shooting. Now I need to add spherical stitching to the mix for added fun! ;)

I designed and had 3D printed a special bracket to mount a laptop battery below the H6D-100c back and it makes usage on the Arca in the field painless. The rotamount makes changes of orientatin easy too.

The only slight issue is that the back won't shoot when live vew is active. You need first to exit live view at least when the capture is triggered by the lens. They have a pinhole mode that adresses this, but subject movement becomes a problem I believe... anyway, more studying needed but happy so far.

Due to the nature of the subject I didn't even bother to do an LCC for the night shots. I had pretty big amounts of rise applied here, but no color cast is visible... well you could argue that the whole image is a huge color cast obviously. ;)

Bernard

Great that you figured out the battery. If the pinhole mode is anything like P1, then yes human movement is a problem. However, I've never detected a problem with natural movements like windy branches or water. Never tried ocean waves though.

You will probably want an LCC for stitching. Other than that, hit or miss. Certainly on your snow images!

Thanks.

Most of the issues I had were fixed with firmware 1.16 a few months ago.

The camera now performs as expected.

It means its image quality is outstanding, its CMOS sensor offers excellent live view,...

The limitations compared to my Nikons are mostly related to focusing, but it was a known topic and is manageable for I do with the camera.

Cheers,
Bernard

This a "known" issue when viewing images on a 4K monitor with the Chrome browser. If you are using Chrome, try Safari to compare. I have consistently observed this with images I have edited on the NEC PA322UHD. They look fine in Photoshop, and then, boom, load them on my website and view with Chrome, and they look way too saturated.

There is a thin white halo at the top of the dome. It is very easy to fix. See this tutorial: Tutorial (https://www.lynda.com/Photoshop-tutorials/Removing-halos-Darken/48372/51450-4.html/)

He use a regular brush. I use the healing tool or stamp.

Title: Re: Fun with medium format images
Post by: Paul2660 on August 05, 2017, 08:58:00 am
Hi Larry,

The Halo for me is part of the shot in this case as it was created by the reflected light from the top of the dome.  I assume that is what you refer to.  I preferred the glow. 

It may have been bit accentuated by the compression to jpg and color space shift from prophoto to sRGB.

I may go back and tune it down a bit once I print it.

If there is outline halo around the top, that is for sure do to the jpg compression as there is none in the original.

Really? Too bad I didn't know. :-)

The place is spectacular, albeit a bit touristy. We were staying within walking distance so I could get there early.

In fact the whole Lauterbrunnen valley is spectacular, I would say easily world class. I was surprised to find out that Swiss friends had never visited it either.

In my view it belongs to the same club as Yosemite for instance.

+1 
the middle has something old fashion soft- but distinct contrast in it that you more often see with large format.
Usually i do not see any difference between MF and FF in web sized photos.
Also in this case i think it is the drawing of the lens and the development of the image  that makes the photo and not so much if it is MF or FF or else.
I think this mood could be well copied with the nikkor 45PCE, that has this kind of qualities.

Ahhh, Bernard, that has been my favorite lens of all the HC series, or any lens manufactured!
Also loved the 100mm T* back in my Hassie 500cm film and digital back on 500cm days!

Recently equaled, and in some ways slightly exceeded, by my new 23mm Fugi on the GFX!
I have a full res image upload on DropBox you are welcome to take a look at - shot with GFX and the 23.

If you get a chance, get you hands on the 23 Fuji - visit North Caroline and you are welcome to head to the

Yes, image quality is pretty sweet with the Hassy and LR does a very good job with the colors.

This image is a from a Horseman 617 panoramic camera, Schneider 180mm lens, with Velvia 50 film.

I switched about two years ago to stitching using a Phase One XF and a IQ3 100 back. You just can't beat the image quality for large prints with the Phase One setup.

One from last fall, 2 part horizontal stitch, IQ3100 and Schneider 75-150 @ 110mm.  C1 used for conversion and LR for stitching and final color work.  I also added a 100% crop below.  It's really amazing to dig into these files as there is really a ton of detail that is being captured.

Fall sunset at Sam's Throne taken with an IQ180 and 43mm Schneider lens.  The 43mm was a great lens, loved the fact it was symmetrical, (did not really appreciate that until I started shifting the 32mm and 40mm Rodenstocks which have classic retrofocus distortion).  The 43mm also did not have any issues flare which surprised me and made a great sun star.

Very nice.  Did you use a ND grad for this?
Title: Re: Fun with medium format images
Post by: Paul2660 on October 07, 2017, 11:49:28 am
Hi Joe:

Thanks, I only shot it in a exposure bracket.  The IQ180 always had good highlight recovery for me, but the foreground was the problem.  But a few brackets got it.

Looking back, the ND grad would have been a great idea for this shot as I could have kept the sky in check allowing for more shadows.  The problem on this day was wind, which was blowing very heavy.  So I had really push the 180 quite a bit.

Thanks. Maybe but it's a tough setting to find level in. that's a bend in the creek so the shore isn't straight. I based level on the dog and her reflection being plumb. It's at least pretty close. :)

I just finished a trip to the coast of Oregon.  I had a specific project in mind that I was able to make some progress on.  I wanted to create portraits of sea stacks that I could assemble into a panel of images.  Ultimately, I wanted 9 total images of solo stacks. While I made some progress, the rain cut significantly into my shooting days.  Unfortunately, I damaged my XF100 and was unable to shoot with it for the bulk of the trip.  Fortunately, I had the Nikon 850 as my backup.  Almost all of the solo stacks were shot with the 850.  I will post some of the images shot with the 850 under the 850 thread.  All of these images are drafts as they have had only some processing on my laptop but you get the idea.

Thanks, very kind of you really.

The H6D-100c is a really nice back and latest firmware makes it fully usable thanks to the 2 cards back up capability. Image quality is great.

Now, is it worth the extra money vs a D850, especially if you stitch? I would tend to say it isn’t. ;)

The Nikon lenses are overall better I feel, especially the 105mm and 19mm and the AF is so incredibly superior that you end up with better absolute image quality most of the time on moving subject, including people at open apertures. Of course the H6D-100c is splendid at f5.6.


Using the back on an Arca takes things to another level, but again that is only if you leave stitching out of the picture.

I would only upgrade to an H7D if it has an EVF.

Cheers,
Bernard

Hi Bernard,

Another nice image. To be honest, I actually like your Nikon images a bit more...

When I was shooting MFD I made a lot of nice images, but very few of them made it to the wall.

To put things in the right perspective, I have not been shooting with MFD. (I'm shooting with Canon today)
I'm sorry about meddling in this, but it came a deja vú when reading Your statement MFD pictures not being worth of hanging on the wall.
It happend to me 30+ years ago. I was shooting landscapes with Pentax 67 (on film). I was fortunated enough to get some quite acceptable shots.
All the time I dreamed of a large format camera to get better pictures. At last I got it, a 4x5" view camera.
It was a great disappointment. I did not get better but worse pictures with that new fine and expensive camera.
I missed situations because I was not ready to shoot in time, I misfocused, shaked the camera, over or under exposured ... not to tell about tilting and swinging ...
I simply did not master the new tool. I got nothing to put on the wall. But that's me, sorry.
When looking at Bernard's pictures I feel he's mastering his MFD.
Title: Re: Fun with medium format images
Post by: ErikKaffehr on January 05, 2018, 04:56:52 pm
Hi Timo,

I had no technical problems with my MFD images. When I bought into MFD, my P45+ actually had some benefits in resolution. But, I am normally printing at 16"x23" and at that size the advantages of the P45+ did not really come into play.

What I think may have happened was perhaps that I had to much focus on technique with the P45+, while with the Sony A99 I more focused on the creative part.

Another part of the story may have been that the Sony I have mostly used with zooms. You find a viewpoint, get a framing and you shoot it. With fixed focals you need to make the best you can of any vantage point. Using primes may be an artistic challenge, but it is quite possible that zooms yield the best crops.

Things like this are worth a bit of discussion.

I have seen a lot of great images from Bernard. I admire most of his images. But, I feel that his MFD images are constricted in some sense. They can be very good. I can't really explain it... But, I have seen this with my own MFD images, they can be very good but they may lack something.

Best regards
Erik

Hi Erik,
tecnical problems are always there. But in my last message I naturally simplyfied them. (I later learnt to use 4x5" view camera).

What I think may have happened was perhaps that I had to much focus on technique with the P45+, while with the Sony A99 I more focused on the creative part.

Another part of the story may have been that the Sony I have mostly used with zooms. You find a viewpoint, get a framing and you shoot it. With fixed focals you need to make the best you can of any vantage point. Using primes may be an artistic challenge, but it is quite possible that zooms yield the best crops.

And this I (partially) agree. If the camera is so hard to use that it takes your focus to manage it, you are loosing the scene you are taking the photo. The picture should be more important than the tool to make it. Learning to use your tools, using them so much, the routine, helps you to miss the tools and concentrate to the subject. In landscape photography I'm often in hurry. When I see something in landscape worth of shooting, it's something soon disappearing, most often the special ligth or some weather conditions, clouds etc. I have to work quickly or it's too late. The point and shoot camera with zoom is ideal in landscape work!
And with zooms I (partially) disagree. Because the field of view is also an important artistical choice. You can think there is one, the best viewpoint in this scene where you should put your lens and then you crop the best part of the scene into your picture. We have seen that kind of photography here and everywhere in internet.
You also can think that there is some kind of perspective you want to exist in your picture. You need some kind special prime to get that wanted perspective. And then you have to find the best viewpoint with that lens to make the best crop with the best perspective.
I think things like this are worth of discussion.

I feel pretty comfortable with the H6D-100c I believe.

One very weird and annoying bug preventing usage of the release cable with some lenses pisses me off a bit, but overall things are pretty good.

One problem in cold weather is that the back needs its touch screen which is a problem with my current gloves.

Hi Bernard,

I had a  similar glove issue. I now use silk liners with touch enable finger tips under woolen mittens. The mittens allow a fold back to expose fingers or in my case, I poke one finger through the slot...

Oh so comfortable now.

I have done some test strips at the 30" x 40" size, testing the image to check the toning and sharpness of the image. It looks pretty clean. I am very happy with it. I may try and couple other levels of toning before my final print.

I have two shows and 3 talks next month, we will see if this is an image that one of the galleries picks.

Jpegs are a hard thing they don't show the quality of these files.

Thank you for the comment.

I would love to see it printed in the 30x40 range on Legacy Fiber - my personal bias.  What paper are you thinking of using?
Title: Re: Fun with medium format images
Post by: stevenfr on February 15, 2018, 06:15:36 pm
Hi Cam

I use the Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Baryta. 30" x 40" is generally my smallest print I sell for the non-panos.

Why do you think the legacy paper would be nice?

Thanks

Steven
Title: Re: Fun with medium format images
Post by: cgarnerhome on February 15, 2018, 06:29:24 pm
It's really just a personal bias for a more ethereal look.  Given that I haven't used the Hahnemuhle Photo Rag I have no way of knowing how they compare.  I have used the Legacy Fiber for most of my minimalist images and have been very happy with the results.
Title: Re: Fun with medium format images
Post by: stevenfr on February 15, 2018, 07:13:50 pm
Thanks for the advice. I am concerned about the tone of these images having to much of a cold feeling. It will take a bit of work to get it right. Right now they are toned to look good on my website against a beige background.

The white out images are fantastic and somewhat surreal. Don't lose the ethereal quality- the harsh but beautiful winter isolation. Ironically, it has calming effect.

Thanks! Yes, shot at f2.8 I believe.

The sweet spot for this lens I find, at least as long as there are no specular highlights in the background since I don’t like them hexagonal in shape. F2.2 is then the only option.

From early February when there was very little snow in Colorado. A little better now, but still a light year.

Still need to clean up a few rogue branches. Alpa STC, sk150, bit of back fall:

Thank you Erik. As usual my sunrise attempt was a bust. It was way too windy; empty tripod blew over twice, and almost blew me over once. Got the screaming barfies (https://www.climbing.com/skills/ask-the-climbing-docs-the-screaming-barfies/) my hands were so cold. Finally found a protected place still enough for a few photos.

Not sure that I like the bright colours shot into the light. Looks a bit unnatural to me but certainly it is an eye-catching image.

What interested me was your concept of adjusting the ISO for different parts of the image. I have a CCD sensor in an IQ180 back and am thinking of getting an IQ3100 as you used for your image.

With a CCD sensor, there would be limited scope for using a range of ISOs in an image.

So, I guess that would be another plus for getting a CMOS sensor!

Thank you for the idea.
Roger

Quote
One from the fall of 2016.  Still impressed with the IQ3100 and high light retention, but not so much with shadow push.  More than likely it's my back as other report excellent push. 
Taken in 2 exposures, ISO50 for sky and ISO 200 for tree as wind was blowing around 25 mph and there is still some wind movement. 
Image may appear a tad over sharpened, due to Flickr, as it seems to add a bit of sharpening to images.

Another image from Japan.  A friend pointed out to me that this is a tree that Michael Kenna photographed.  Always interesting to look at how others photographed a subject.  Obviously, when he photographed it was a younger tree.  See link below of one of his images of this tree on Biwa Lake.

Over the past three years, I traveled to all 50 states (plus Washington DC) to take portraits of Americans for a project that I call Neighbors. A few weeks ago, I installed a selection of 86 portraits along a park in the Lower East Side of NYC. You can find them between 1st and 2nd Ave on Houston Street. Stretching over the length of almost two football fields, it's probably the biggest and most viewed exhibition of photography in the US at the moment. The installation will be up until the first week of July.

All photos shot on either the Hasselblad H5 or X1D.

All fine shots, you amateur you ;)

About the third: oh, the irony! One would imagine that riding a bike through a street lined with blossoming trees must be a bliss, both visual and olfactory. And yet...  face mask! Lovely color palette, btw.

Hi Bernard

Thanks for your kind thoughts. The largest I have sold it is 90” across. Attached photo is not great, but gives a sense for the scale.  Do you print your work at larger sizes?

We are going back to Hokkaido next January.

Hi,

My largest print is 35"x157", but that was stitched from something like 7-9 24 MP images. Stitching is almost always a better alternative to making a larger image and crop.

But, stitching has it's limitations. That would not work for ocean waves but it often works remarkably well for waterfalls.

You can stitch also from medium format. With MFD I am shooting primes, so I often use stitching to get a wider view as I cannot zoom out.

Best regards
Erik

Hi Eric

Thanks for your comment. My stitched images from the Phase One XF IQ3 100 are about 5 gb un uprezzed. I have stitched ocean images, but the exposures have to be longer.

The attached image is a commission I did for a local float plane company. 13 stitched images from the Phase One XF IQ3 100. The print is ten feet in length. You can see the rivets on the cowling of the float plane. The image was downsized to print. I was standing on a floating dock during a light rain as one float plane is at the dock and one float plane is landing.

Sorry for the upside down image in my previous post.

Here's a couple I took in the Scab Lands, a volcanic desert in north central Washington State.  The location is Dry Falls State park.  It's said to be the remains of the largest known waterfall the earth has ever seen.  It's 2.5 miles wide and 400 ft. high, the result of numerous Ice Age floods.  Camera was a c.1937 Voigtlander Bessa RF which makes 6x9cm images.  Lens was 105mm Heliar, film was Ilford FP4.   Hardly anyone seems to have heard of this area, but I'd love to come back again with my 5x7 camera and spend a day or two.  It's fantastic!

Ok, definitely falls into fun with medium format on shooting these cars for the Barrett Jackson auction.  I am sure there is a long list of ways in which I have incorrectly lit them, my first time to ever shoot any cars.  I have 8 more to shoot, so hopefully I will improve as I go.

Thanks Matt!  I did have to clean the back wall up some in post.  My biggest challenge was getting enough distance between myself and the car to use a focal length that would not distort too much.

Thanks for responding.  Massive files sizes!!  BTW, what lens do you typically do your panos with?
Title: Re: Fun with medium format images
Post by: stevenfr on November 04, 2018, 07:23:32 pm
Thanks Cam. Typically the 110 or the 150 for stitching. I like the compression that these lenses give me. Its similar to the look I got when I was shooting film with a Horseman 617 and the Schneider 180mm lens.

Bernard can give his advice as well on stitching. He is very good at it, an expert. I stitch for the pano format, not for resolution. Resolution is a benefit of course.

Thanks Cam. I tried to get to this lake last winter but failed. I had never been on the trail before and borrowed snowshoes that were too small. Postholed with snowshoes on. Made it this year with some trail beta and better shoes. One of my favorite things to do is start out in the dark and experience the day emerge while hiking. Fun day.

Any particular reason for not utilizing the full dr output potential for this image? Seems it would be well suited to optimally represent that luminous quality of sky at dusk. I would prefer a different wb as well to better separate the subtle coloring.

I guess because it was dusk and that is how it looked. I didn't want it to look unnaturally bright.

Thanks Nancy. I have a friend here is is a pretty successful landscape photographer and he would have made this much brighter with the red dogwood on the left looking all crimson but his approach can be too much, IMO. The images are beautiful but don't convey the actual scene.
Here's the same image edited in a style that I think looks similar to my friend's. Actually he'd probably go farther but this was all I could bring myself to do. :)

But why go overboard? It just needs to utilize the full dr of an average screen, and a wb correction so it doesn't look like shot through a car window. Not getting either of those two "correct" is just plain silly.

I guess it's not clear to me what WB you are referring to as correct. The first image is how it looked to me. The second image I used the wb dropper on some gray snow.
The dr of the scene was less than the camera, it was pretty low contrast and the histogram was all pretty close to the middle.
To fully use the dr of the gear or simulate that, I'd really have to pump up contrast which still looks wrong to my eyes. I did that in the second (which I agree is overboard).
Title: Re: Fun with medium format images
Post by: MattBurt on December 06, 2018, 12:32:52 pm
Here's something different and I've removed the possibility of WB issues :D
It's actually the same location and the same day but in the morning instead of the evening. It was cold (-8F), foggy, and the river was steaming.
Same gear, 645D & FA 45-85.

If you don't mind me manipulating your image:
1. Original
2. Cleanup
3. Overboard

I'm not entirely clear about the dr of the gear. That depends on exposure.

The wb of snowscenes often does not depend on the snow btw. The trick in general according to my intuition is to find the wb that maximizes the colordifferences in the scene. (On my non-calibrated tablet nr 2 is a possibility to my eyes.) A more methodical approach might be:

1. Cranck up saturation to max
2. Adjust wb until you get the lowest overall saturation
3. Reduce saturation back to normal
4. Very important: let your eyes adapt after this edit.

This is from the IQ3 100. I only had the prototype to test for a couple of hours at the end on this shoot. The image I just posted was shot five days before testing.

I am hoping to have my 150 back before my next shoot in Hokkaido.

Do you have any specific questions? I would be pleased to help.

It's been a year now that I bouth a p45+ for 950€ :o and I haven't touched my d800 again (except for some higher iso stuff). I have to say that now I can take the pictures I couldn't, it really gives this subtle transparency film look that the d800 would always destroy with strange colors and extreme contrast (14bit?). My next stop will be a P65+ to take some portraits, I also got the adapter plate for the RZ67 but still looking for the cables (my favourite glass ever). Anway, here some random shots:

GFX100 + 110mm f2.0 panoramic stitch

You stitch 100-megapixel shots? My God, what do you end up with? How large do you print? Where do you keep the Cray you use for processing?

My mind boggles, Bernard.

And the same goes for you, Steven!

Cracking images, both, I need hardly add.

I end up with a file over 4gb or larger. We just installed some 28 ft prints in a corporate setting. The prints have really good detail, you can see the veins in leaves. I use a mid 2010 Mac Pro. I am looking forward to purchasing the new Mac Pro next month.

Why wouldn't you stitch these images? :D https://www.360cities.net/image/seattle-wa-alaska-way-usa

I've got a 40 shot (4hx10w) I need to stitch still - the XF cable release from Hanhel + a 2.5mm F-F connector & my Gigapan was shooting fine!

Now that DR is pretty much identical at pixel level on all serious cameras, stitching is pretty much mandatory for those really interested in image quality.

Because a 3 images stitch from an a7 IV is exactly the same thing as a one shot from an IQ4 150...

So for genres such as landscape, it doesn’t make much sense to spend 10 times for the best image quality if you are too lazy to stitch. Because the boy next door who does stitch will end up with the better print. ;)

In fact the same held true 10 years ago...

Bernard

There are images in landscape photography which is hard to stitch, for example if you incorporate some moving element - rolling clouds, waves, etc. Also having the same pixels doesn't necessarily mean that the quality of that pixel would be identical. I'm thinking about different CFA, or the on-chip phase detection would cause some difference.

This example was shot during the weekend with a Phase One IQ4 150MP on an XT with a 23mm Rodenstock lens.

Nice image, but totally stitcheable. ;)

Hint... there is zero detail in the middle section with moving water. That part has a resolution of less than 2 megapixels.

Clouds have never been an issue.

With all due respect, I understand that this is a quick sample, but I would nonetheless personally correct the horizon for flatness and horizontality.

Bernard

A lucky shot... look at the eye... ;)

Still, this is the only MF camera with which you have more than one chance in a million to achieve this kind of results on moving subjects.

October 2019

After 4 days of miserable weather I finally has a 1.5 day break.
Caught this scene at sunrise as the last of the fog was receding from the lake.

Still poking around in the file on the fog area - far more difficult to get texture from receding fog than clouds!
