Hey, I just wanted to know if it was MF. As you say, they are some posts here (excellent photos btw) where it was done with other cameras : cool. But when I come to a part of the forum, the MF section, I want to see what I was looking for...

Well gee, the name of the forum is Luminous LANDSCAPE, so perhaps only landscape photos should be posted....

If you're going to be such sticklers for the "rules" it seems more than few people shouldn't be allowed to post since they got rid of their MF cameras

Nobody said otherwise. However, this thread is about professional photography done with MF. For any other combination, feel free to start a new thread.

No it's not. It's about professional photography done with any camera any format. Plenty of non-MF work has been posted over the years. Read the original post.

I did. Found nothing there to the opposite. It never said "any format."

Which part of "Luminous Landscape Forum > Equipment & Techniques > Medium Format / Film / Digital Backs – and Large Sensor Photography > Recent Professional Works" you don't get? I already explained why certain exceptions were accepted (hint: because they belong to professionals who build their reputation on the forum and outside of it with their medium format work). And even in those cases such postings were questioned. What we are discussing here is neither medium format, nor exactly professional, as others already pointed out.

The camera/format issue was settled years ago - read page 8 of this 205 page thread. There are plenty of other exchanges on the following pages. All the images I've posted in the thread are 35mm and have never been questioned (page 132 for example). Nobody cares.

This thread was started back before the "pro forum" existed and at the time the MF forum was the defacto forum for professionals. Maybe the mods can move this thread to the pro forum since nowhere in Dustblue's original post does it state that the recent professional works displayed must be shot on MF. Only that they be of a professional nature.

I have never seen any need for policing this thread.  Those who post images almost never abuse the privilege.  And we're talking about a category whose actual meaning is not fixed over the lifetime of the thread.

I still have some great images from a Leaf Valeo 6.  That was sold as a medium format back with a 24x36mm sensor and 6MP.  Should I post those here?  Is that more "medium format" than a D800E with a 24x36mm sensor and 36MP just because the Leaf sensor has an RZ hanging off it at the other end?

So let's focus on the technics, not the equipments; the art side, not the hardware side.
In the end you are what you shoot, not what camera you use.

And if you like, you can add who are the clients, what's the layout,  where is your inspirition comes from, and how you did it.
Of coz you could just post a image but say nothing, it's ok because just enjoying a great picture is already good enough  .

Edit:We don't care whether it's a commissioned work or a self promotion(personal) one, as long as you are serious and proud of it, it would have a place here!

Damn ... This thread turn all but not really professional ... look like I'm a fire starter and some trolls wanted to bury my post; two pages of sterile blabla. So I repost it here and let be pro now, like the thread use to be and never forget we are on Luminous Landscape, somehow a kinda serious forum (I hope). And, for the curious, this photo as not been made with a crop sensor Smiley As FredBGG quoted, I respect what the OP wanted about this thread. And this is a professional commissioned work (and the client is more than happy with my shoots and reputation).

Regarding recent comments in this thread, I suggest that some may want to remind themselves of the what the original poster requested when starting this thread, specifically, professional-quality works that you are especially proud of, be they commissioned or self-assigned, and not to dwell heavily upon the hardware used.

So, true!

But there's an understandable problem: this thread seems to come within the wider section that's meant to be devoted to non-35mm formats.

I think that's a fair differentiation to make, and allows like-minded people to hang out together. The only problem is, many people produce great work without using MF or MF+ and so they have no place here, unless they create a fresh thread elsewhere, where they might feel able to show their pro stuff.

Easiest thing to do would be create a new section, discussing 35mm formats / other formats. Like Getdpi.
Who knows, with the explosion of use in those areas it could well benefit the forum overall, increase member number and traffic.

It does surprise me there is no such section for those formats. Maybe there's a reason I'm not aware of.

I could be wrong, but I believe Michael changed the name of this forum comparatively recently to Medium Format / Film / Digital Backs – and Large Sensor Photography
to avoid confusion. The thread Recent Professional Works is within the Medium Format / Film / Digital Backs – and Large Sensor Photography
forum.

Does what it says on the tin.

So then that would make large sensor anything bigger than compact?

One from today.

H3DII-39 - 100mm 2.2 + 1.7x TC @ 1/125 wide open at 3.5, handheld @ ISO200




...and one with my new toy, the Polaroid Big Shot:

Huh. I  always thought the most important thing was the photographer. Apparently it's really the camera that matters.

(turning off snark filter)

In four and a half years, this has never been an issue -- suddenly there's a problem? There've been scads of really, really nice professional work posted here, made on 35mm equipment. There are people posting gorgeous images made using MF glass  mounted on dSLR bodies, images made with early-generation MF digital backs that under-perform my old 20d, and everything in between. And yet, this is the one place I know of on the internet where I can view consistently great quality images accompanied by knowledgeable, thoughtful commentary. This thread isn't broken...please lets don't "fix" it just because two guys get into a spat over a Vogue logo.

Gosh, are you sure?

(turning off snark filter)

What I'd really like to see is a thread exclusively for recent commissioned work, regardless of camera used. But where to place it?

I'm not sure what you're asking: do you want it to remain MF and MF+ exclusively, then, or do you want 35mm to be included despite being specifically excluded in the intention of the tiltle, which talks about "Medium Format/Film/Digital Backs - and Large Sensor Photograhy" I sense you mean that 35mm should be permitted because of the great stuff produced with it.

Doing so would deprive MF and MF+ afficionados their special space; maybe best leave things as they are and start that new 35mm (or smaller) section instead?

Perhaps a more simple approach would be to keep the formats separate in the textual, chat sense, and design a special Images Section which caters for all formats used in professional anger?

Apparently we need 4 image threads:
- MF pro
- MF fun
- All pro
- All fun
New image sharing subforum anyone?
However the rule which would make things really interesting is that for every post, there would need to be an image. Might as well do that, havent posted here in a while. For clarity: MF, personal work
