Sugus, would you mind telling us the lens you used for the leaves in "Plymouth"? You seem to be hitting a MFD and DOF I haven't seen a lot in my initial exploration of Medium Format. (Please don't say "75/2.8 AL" though!)
I'm using a 4/50mm CF lens (Hasselblad 500 C/M + CFV-16)

What means MFD and DOF?

Daniel

Daniel, apologies! I was referring to "minimum focus distance" and "depth of field"--I'm trying to learn how different focal length lenses work with larger formats than the crop sensor DSLR's I'm used to.


At any rate, thanks for elaborating--and a great shot, BTW. ("By the way"...)

Ok, tnx fr msg (thanks for the message) ��

I was as close I can get and focus then with a 1/8000 footstep back an forth. Therefore the mfd is 50cm.

I take f4 and approx 1/60 or 1/125s I don't remember. ISO 400. And of corse free hand and no lightmeter. I just learn to guess the light conditions with my eyes...

Not my usual kind of subject but hey we should all leave our comfort zones now and then, right?

That is very true Matt and it's a great shot

A couple of smallish scale shots with the 90 macro and Z.

Fly Agaric 7 focus stacked images. 'Eat me' isn't what it's saying



I don't know what this one is. But the shot is handheld at ISO 400.

My Working Cocker Spaniel Ellroy watching pictures of mushrooms being taken and seriously wondering why? Also with the 90 macro.

Plymouth 17.10.2016

What a beautiful surprise to see those shots of Plymouth. In your third photo, of Sutton Harbour, I used to live in the old warehouse building at the very left of the photograph -- the one with the white painted wall. Thank you for bringing back some very happy memories.

This also piqued my attention. I was at Marjons in the 90's

Evening light side and back-lighting the island of Kilmaha, which is on the opposite shore of Loch Awe from where I live. It is half a mile away and only 30 odd metres offshore from a very steep slope of conifer plantation. The island itself is mainly populated with native woodland species. The contrast offered by the commercial forestry plantation is the first time I have ever found anything positive to say about commercial forestry plantations in the west highlands. Shot with the z and the 645 A* 300mm F4

Hi Everyone, i post my first attempt with medium format

Camera: Pentax 6x7 ML
Lens: SMC Takumar 55mm f3.5
Film: Kodak T Max 400

i like so much how this lens, is sharp and the field of view is just unreal compared to the view that i have usually with a full frame, i don't love how this film renders the black and white, it suffer a lack of contrast, just my opinion

It looks incredible on my screen, really good shadow detail (albeit with blown highlights in the sky). Have you tried messing around with pp?

thank you, i played around with Lightroom to obtain that result, it can be either a lack of the film or the scanner (Epson v550)

this is the original image splitted with the edited one

For more contrast, try extending your developer time about 30%.
