Hello,

Frank really nice images I like them a lot.

Bob thanks my old Leaf Aptus 75 just wouldn’t be able to handle the shadow detail for this kind of image as well as giving me live view on my soon to be sold Mamiya 645AFDII and my Mamiya RZ doesn’t have wide enough lenses. This is where in my opinion the Nikon D800E just out shines it competitors

Slobodan thanks and yes there is no moiré in the high res image.

Cheers

Simon


I've had moiré appear on a few car interior images I have done with the D800e. Interestingly on one shoot we had a non "e" on hand and did a direct comparison and it too showed the moiré.

Could you imagine a mutishot D800E using a piezo electric sensor shift like the Haselblad and Sinar multi shot backs.

Simon, I've been using my Canon 5dmk3 lately for vehicle majors too.  It is quicker and focus is not an issue as it is with my Mamiya 645/lenses.  I'm definitely looking forward to Canon coming out with a higher resolution body.  Jim

More Architect ure.  A client of mine asked me to come into the office and do head shots of the staff.  I'd done this sort of thing before but not that often.  I suggested we shoot with my RED Epic.  It has plenty of resolution for their needs and since they're not professional models, we'd just have to pick the best frame out of hundreds rather than trying to capture the perfect moment.  I used constant light sources and shot 24 frames/second at 1/60th to freeze motion (I'd try to do 1/100th next time).

Fun stuff.

Hi Jim,

I here ya man.

Medium format for me and my business is now only about 15% of what I shoot with.

For me and this is just my opinion these MF backs company are flogging a dead horse and this is just my opinion.

The next generation of Canons and Nikons I think will be the death of medium format.

If and when my Leaf Aptus 75 breaks down that will be the end of a loving relationship I have had with my Mamiya RZ system going back to 1987.

CB nice shot like the dof and tone.

Cheers

Simon

I believe your interior shots are absolutely wonderful and have a signature look to them, but to be brutally honest:

You're doing a disservice to a beautiful woman.

And wtf @ epic logic? Portraits with 24 fps @ 1/60th? Maybe 1/100th???

From what I see it seems to be the case.  But really it should not. Nothing blocks the medium format systems from going CMOS and transform the market to a situation similar to the one we have with film, but of course with a higher price differential.

Something similar happened with Unix boxes and mainstream PC processors.  From Power5 IBM started to catch out. But they shoot themselves by charging crazy prices on standard  memory sticks etc. They also loose apple, not to performance but to lack of investment on a lower power implementation. They did not believe Apple could switch, even with freaking Steve Jobs "the bold"  on board. Taken by surprise they went from number 3 to 4, after ARM and Intel and AMD.

In that sense the H5D appears to be a bad step.  Some of us knew they did not have the time to create a CMOS base system or any other revolutionary machine. What we did not expected was:

1. Luna: no synergy with the H5D, not a cash flow engine since it is a boutique product.
2.  No H5D-80, that will be important to send a message of progress as they prepare the CMOS base machine.
3.  Price even less competitive as if the Pentax and the D800E never happened.  Together with 2 this send the message that they know Medium format is death and they are just trying to cash in. I am not saying that's what they believe, I am saying that how it looks from the outside. The star of Photokina was not the H5D.

We could go on, but that will derail the discussion. Lovely work as always.

Best regards,
James

Great shot BC, I like the dynamic composition and post that essentially goes with it.

And I can just about guarantee that the client, if an architect or interior designer, would love it. It just has the right look.......

For an architecture theme, I very much like the slightly blurred background creating graphical primitives to fill or divide the frame. Fits the style of your interior shots. But the woman currently looks like a dead corps, cut in half by the background, in a leaning tower of Pisa pose. The colortoning may be necessary to conform to the corporate identity guidelines, but it doesn't help a dull and lifeless "presence". She doesn't stand out from the background nor is she embedded. I understand this is a corporate headshot, and the shot manages to capture that totally non-descript expression, but where is that twinkle-in-the-eye that says: "Yes, I'm human."?

We receive a lot of brochures from undertakers here lately, and this strongly reminds me of those. It would fit right in, with the toning and her standing exactly on that transition of light and dark.

No, because this is family picture, a totally different genre.

btw. is this meant to be a single frame? because I see 2 different shades of black in the background plus a whole lot of brushstrokes??
