Lens flair or not, they're nice shots. Beautiful landscape. Were these with the new Mamiya?

Nice work Colton. Looks like you did a good job of keeping the camera steady and level on that boat. Not always an easy task.
Thanks Jason,
It was definitely a little tricky shooting from the boat. I was pretty uncertain as to whether I would end up with anything decent, especially as I was shooting at 1/60s on a few. The WLF definitely seems to make steadying the camera easier.

Yes, the M7II with 43mm and 150mm with a yellow filter. I'll look for that flash shot with blur around the subject when shooting the P67 at 1/30 for a flash sync (my) tomorrow and scan it in.

Well done and great shots.

Tuco, those are gorgeous! I see some slight haloing though, and even if I don't mind it at all, I have to wonder how much work you've done in PP that is "global" versus "local" for the image. Would you mind sharing some thoughts?

I just scanned a roll of Tmax 400 shot with the Bessa III a few days ago...

I really don't know how haloing would get there. Local adjustments are by applying a graduated mask vertically across the image and adjusting the curve. Burning/dodging is done by shadow/midtone/highlight values. Note on the second shot, that's not haloing around those trees. It looks like it but the light on that side and a light patches on the next layer of mountain make it look like it.

In these somber times that have seen the multiplication of 645D and die hard getting new folder with "metering", in solidarity with Nester "the king of the sharpest Kodak lenses" I decided to take upon myself to post a couple of pics of a "real men" camera 3.3 Kg of Pentax goodness...

Haha nice work!
I see you managed to avoid the lure of the metered prism. And two nice big wooden grips! I've been considering getting the wooden grip for the left hand. But where did you get the right hand grip?

With the two handles I imagine you shooting machine gun style, cable release in your teeth

Real men shoot the 6x7 without those grips.

Just to annoy Luc some more, here are some colour shots.

Pentax 67, 55/4, Fuji Reala 100

Thanks for the explanation! I seldom do any dodging and burning myself, but selective curves for different parts of an image is very effective.

If you're gonna get one, do it now instead of waiting!

I just recieved my E-6 chems, 10 rolls of Provia 400X and 5 rolls of Velvia 50. The working solutions are mixed and the Bessa is loaded!
This is a good moment to screw up development for the first time, because the E-6 handling prescriptions are quite absurd. You could contamine the first developer with only vapors of the color developer! Jeez...

Well, I'm off to shoot that first roll now! If I manage to f*ck up development, I'll just send the other 14 rolls to a lab.

Yes but the left hand grip is a must to swing the camera when you want to bash somebody in the head

You could get the Fuji GF667 - only $1,700 at B&H or Adorama

Well with the 75/shift it would be more akin to a mortar. The idea is to be stable enough to use the shift while in the middle of a busy street in Europe because it would be unlikely that I could set-up a tripod. I will be testing what works better - right hand grip only or both.

There is a guy on eBay that make them and put them from time to time. Not cheap but very nice.

Darn lens flare. And of course it's on the only one I liked. We'll see how the color roll turns out.


Sunrise On Mount Rainier



Kodak 100TMX

Ahhhh...Eunice Lake! It has been years since I have been there!
