I've looked for Smith Rock, and it seems to me that your limestone i maybe less compact and seem less ... crimps oriented
Smith Rock looks sort of like limestone, but it is solidified volcanic ash (volcanic tuff). High friction stuff.

my uncle gave a wonderful gift a few months ago. fuji gsw390III. its a medium format rangefinder. ran a few rolls through it with nice results but i wasnt blown away. however i recently shot a roll of only portraits with it. i can safely say this camera is now designated for portraits only. shocked at the sharpness and contrast.

A bit surreal?

If you crop the vegetation in the top of the shot it looks like a huge wave of stone breaking over unsuspecting folk. A wild rock formation and a good shot.

Hello everyone - I've been admiring everyones work here and am finally getting around to contributing some pics myself. These were shot last summer with my ME Super w/ F50 1.4, Portra 400 and scanned with my V700. I believe the first two were at F 2.2 or so and the bottom one was at F 1.8.

Two test shots from a Minolta Maxxum 5 with a Minolta 50mm/f1.7. It was taken on a roll of Kodak Max 400 that came in the camera

Meteor Crater

Going back in time - to 1999 - the meteor crater in Arizona from about 20,000 feet.


Taken with a 1952 Kodak Retina 1a, 50mm Schneider-Kreuznach f2.8, Kodachrome, scanned with Epson V500

I hear that one can take a digital picture of a slide placed on a light table. Is that true? Has anyone tried such a technique? You are supposed to place sheets of paper on either side of the slide. Seems like it could work...but does it?
I'm only on my third roll of film, which I'm scanning on top of a light table, but maybe this will be useful. Here's my basic setup, from bottom to top:
  • Light table
  • Cardboard mask to minimize light that doesn't go through the negative
  • Filters (020 and 021)
  • Lens hood
  • Negative holder for obsolete scanner with the negatives
  • Macro lens
  • DSLR
  • Tripod

The cardboard mask makes a huge difference in image contrast. I went from using about 40% of my K-5's dynamic range up to about 85% just with this trick. (Rough estimates from looking at the histograms.)

The filters compensate for the orange mask on a negative; you won't need these for slides. They're important for negatives, though, both because they relatively decompress the blue channel (resulting in less digital noise) and because they get the white balance close enough that you can use the eyedropper in Lightroom.

The lens hood is used to move the negative away from the light table, in hopes that any dust or irregular illumination will be blurred out. An inch or two is fine, given that depth of field is very shallow at this magnification.

The negative holder keeps the film flat. This won't be necessary if your slides are mounted.

The camera is suspended from a tripod with the center column inverted. I use a carpenter's level to ensure the light table is level, and a hotshoe bubble level to ensure the camera is also level. If they're both perfectly level, then the sensor plane will be parallel to the film plane.

I'm perfectly happy with my 8x12 print of a 135 negative "scanned" using a Takumar macro (the tricycle shot posted earlier in this thread), but that image didn't have a lot of fine detail in it. The magnification there was a little over 2, so a lot of the frame was cropped. Moving to the tripod gives me the working distance for a 100mm macro and crop-free magnification of about 1.5... and if I want more data from the negative, I can go to a 1:1 magnification and stitch the images together like a panorama.

Here's from today's scanning project (click for bigger)

Steve,

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find any good angles of the new bridge, but there's lots of changes happening down at south waterfront if you haven't been there lately. (I'm more of an east side chap myself.)

Cheers,
Jonathan

I have been down there, but was not able to get any good angles. I would go down there tomorrow except that the wildflower bloom in the Gorge is in full swing
