Captured at Nambucca Heads NSW, Australia. Winter provides clean clear water along this stretch of coast.

nice shot - too bad about the de-centered lens, though.

645Z, 90MM DFA, on the last image there is a sea bird to the right of center for scale, looks like a black dot on the web.

I think the smoke adds to the depth and atmosphere. I like the limited motion of the water as well.

Only 3-6 rolls a day? I don't consider that very much - I would shoot that sometimes for a single scene - still do today, but it doesn't cost me a dime. Back in 1995 I shot 40,000 Pentax 6x7 Velvia frames for one book project alone (most of those were 220 rolls, traveled to 43 states in 11 months - a couple hundred rolls of 35mm Velvia too for that book project, but those were a lot less expensive per frame than the 6x7). Sometimes though when I had to do an all-night star trail it would only be one frame in a night, then get the roll processed, then shoot another frame the next night, then another roll processed, etc. SO MUCH CHEAPER and easier to do now with digital! No question. I've been shooting for 40 years and have spent a small fortune on film and processing during the first 25 years before digital. 5-7 years worth of film and processing would have cost me a couple hundred grand - compared to $8,500 for a camera body with sensor now, that would be insane. Like most things in life, it's all relative, and no two of us are alike...

Yesterday the light was wonderful at the end of the day so I thought I would climb the mountain behind my house to get some sunset shots plus some shots of the steelworks. This is where I am supposed to give you the flickr links for the shots. Except I can't, as I managed to leave all my memory cards at home. Didn't realise until I got the 645Z set up with the 45 -85 and Lee filters. Gutted as you can see from this iPhone shot, the light was nice:



So instead of that, here are some shots I have taken over the last few days in Germany - Düsseldorf and Cologne, and in London

55-110



33-55



55-110



120 f/4 macro



DA 25 f/4



A good friend of mine and her daughter: 55- 110

Wow, you sure get around! Great shots. How are you liking the Z at this point?

Am off to Amsterdam and then Johannesburg and Durban next week and Asia in September, so yes I do get about

I love the Z, but then I loved the D too. The 3 fps and the extra sensitivity has meant I haven't used by D800E in anger much since I got the Z.

Wow, that's a lot of shooting.

Shooting for a job is different than for pleasure, of course. But after I got a 4x5 many years ago, I shoot a fraction of the rolls I'd normally do. It taught me to look first and shoot later. As a result, a busy day of shooting for me is 2 rolls of 120 film. But if I'm taking people pictures, that can double.
I agree, with nice big viewfinders I can see what I will have and if I will like it or not. Well, even before I bring camera to my eye. So I will walk around, decided what is the best photo and take it. I don't see the point of taking 100s of photos and then throwing away 99% of them since I knew they would be terrible in the first place. Not that my photos are amazing, but I'm trying to improve and being more discriminating helps me a lot.

I still have 6 photos left on one roll of Portra 800 in one of my hasselblad backs... It's been there since April...

Wow, I guess you are a lot better photographer than me if you get a perfect picture every time you click the shutter - it often takes me thousands before I get one that I'm happy with. I've still got a lot to learn.

I didn't say I'm better or not, but I know what I like. I open my eyes and look at the light etc and if it's going to make good photo. Pull out my spot meter and check the scene etc...

I don't want to rely on luck to get good photos. But instead of going through 1000s of my crappy photos, I prefer to spend that time looking at the master photographers work and get some ideas in my head etc. And by that I don't mean 500px/1x/flick (which I do use a bit), but the photographers who's work withstood the flow of time. What I'm working on is improving my visualisation and not just randomly snapping away.

I spend a lot of time organising photos of the photographers I like and who's work inspires me on pinterest. So far I'm up to about 170+ photographers and 3500 of their photos, the list is growing.
