Tbh, I don't think I want to put the effort into getting nice stills of people climbing. I've always wanted to take a fisheye and point it straight up in our gym - the main rooms have these huge vaulted ceilings, I was thinking it would be really neat to document it with a slow speed film... I would love to take some fisheye photos from the top of a rope, but the gym owners would rightfully have a fit.
The friends didn't pose for the shot, they never do. Hence the tricky part

For the fish-eye on a rope, it means being really close to the climber, on a place were you won't bother him (like the anchor ?) - if you want to fill the frame. But the rest of the gym will appear, but it will be hard to make it interesting (composition-wise) IMHO.

To give you an idea, this is 35mm film, with the DA35/2.4, 1/60, iso 800, (we have a huge window on the gym). i was at 1,60m away from the climber, and be closer would had been nice, but i would have prevent him from doing some of the mouvements.


The more i do this, the more i think a good 50 to 150 is the way to go, if you are outside. inside a good 15-85mm is the best way to get all you want, no mater the gym, boulder or sport-climbing.

For the photos I was thinking of, I was thinking of approaching it from more of an architecture perspective. Catch some people in the frame but they aren't the main subject.

Neat photo!

Aaaaaah ! In that case, yes ! The fish eye is a great lens ! I think you can have something pretty cool with a slow speed give a sens of motion.

New things to explore for me great !

the first roll with my new 67

Pentax 67 // 105 2.4 // Portra 160

Hmmm... I think this is a subtly beautiful shot. Did you use a reflector to get a bit of light into her face? Oh, and of course, considering it's film, that's some skill involved...

very clever idea beautifully executed
considering the money he has made off these images, perhaps he can bring a few homeless Kenyans back home with him so that they can enjoy the same lifestyle as he has. Or perhaps sponsor a Kenyan photographer to come to Britain and look at the lost local wildlife and how the British industrialized areas have done away with habitat. The reality is the western world are hypocrites in that we want to save wildlife and habitat somewhere else but heaven help if have to give up our lifestyle to do it. The people of Africa and South America and Asia who want the same material things and the same futures for their children as we have are denied by do-gooder westerners.

These are truly marvellous. I am fascinated by the portion of the photos that are in front and behind the plane of focus, very nice effect. I need a Z!

Thank you. I used auto focus at a third way into the scene (which is normal for me). A few of the later ones are at f/8 and the the background isn't critically sharp at pixel peeper level but certainly acceptably sharp for this kind of shot. As Cartier Bresson is reported to have said, sharpness is a bourgeois concept in any case!
