My first medium format images

Hi, Team,

I know we have a whole thread devoted to this topic, so let me know if I should delete this one and simply contribute above (I tried and could not figure out how to embed the images).

Several of you have asked to see my work as I've progressed, so here's a sample of some of my strongest images from the first half year of owning my P67 kit.

I've also figured out how to post them directly to the thread below. Much to my dismay I can't furnish you with the fill 140MP file sizes

Let me know what you think!

Isnʻt it glorious? I love the rendering, the lighting, and overall aesthetic. The shallow d-o-f is really special. Thanks for sharing these.

Thank you, everyone!

Yes, the way that this system renders black and white tones is nothing short of magical. And the swirling bokeh achieved by the 150mm (and I think the 105 as well?) provides an additional compositional element which draws the eye into the center of the frame. It also gives the image a fairy tale feel.

I'll keep sharing more as I scan the keepers in!

I like the pictures, especially the Black-and-White pictures. What films were you using, for both the BW and the color shots?

Hi, many good results and some really great! Nice to see. I keep a notebook for all my work with the 67 system, itīs an effective way to learn from experience and to share or exchange knowledge later. Regards Jakob

If you follow the link in my original post, the film stock is noted in the description of each image. Thanks for the interest! I was very pleasantly surprised about Ultrafine 400. So impressed that I just ordered 20 rolls.

Jakob, I need to be better about noting my exposure settings and lighting conditions of each shot. I'm thankful that my camera behaves the way it should - my Zone IV Modified light meter paired with BW film creates these beautiful cinematic shots. I really want to recreate the feel of the portraits of the smoking man, the man with his baby, and the woman in the striped dress. They were all taken on the 150mm, so maybe it has something to do with the lens itself.
