Morning /p/,

It's been a good while since I've made a thread and have quite a bit of random stuff to share. Just developed 50 sheets of E6 too so I need to work on some of those as well. My drum scanning backlog of C41 is ridiculous right now and since I'm actually around town the next few weeks I might try to work on some of it. Most of this stuff ranges from September to now.

First one is Velvia 50

That would be very interesting. I’ve had two sheets drumscannes myself, but that was before I was aware that I needed glasses, so I think they’re a bit out of focus.

Here's the crop, no sharpening at all. You can see every single grain, Velvia 50 has a rather noticeable grain structure that's definitely unlike any other film that I've drum scanned.

And thanks, I'm always happy every time I hear someone gets into LF (either first timers or revisiting the format) because of me.

Sunset from said coast last week. This was one of those absolutely ridiculous sunsets that I knew Provia or Velvia couldn't handle, so I pulled out my holder of Astia and gave it a go. Not a film I use very often, but it made the sunset far less purple and oversaturated than other slides would have.

One certainly does not go to 4chan to seek success, or gratification either. But it is one place to get quick (and sincere) yes or no responses about new images. Not like I'm keeping a log about what /p/ likes or doesn't like, but sometimes it helps to get even shitty feedback on images from an unbiased party who doesn't give a damn about me.

Velvia 50 again.

Time, practice, lots of days in the field, and loads of gumption. Don't forget to be humble too, because there's plenty of times where I've sucked badly and not known it.

>>3401447
Pretty decent advice.

>>3401448
Glad to hear it. I mean if you correct Velvia to where it has a "correct" balance it will look very bland and defeats the purpose. Plus, I made a print yesterday of it and though it looked good. Pic related.

>>3401449
If you're poor get whatever you can afford. The Intrepid will do the job, as will any used field camera. I like to make sure they are light so it's not as back breaking to hike/backpacking with. I used to use a Toyo and it's a damn brick. Amazing camera but stupid heavy. I *just* got a Chamonix and love it already, so that will probably replace both the Toyo and the Intrepid as it's just as rigid as the former and almost as light as the later. I really don't mean to spam my site here, but I happen to have a post I wrote up on choosing a 4x5 and lenses so I'll link it here: http://www.alexburkephoto.com/blog/2018/2/13/choosing-a-4x5-camera-and-lenses

There's a company in Colorado called "Seek Outside" that makes incredible backpacking bags and they decided to make one for photography too that opens up in a reasonable way so that you can access gear. It's also a super light bag but it holds a lot and rests on your hips properly so it doesn't feel too heavy. If I carry two lenses and five film holders, then extra boxes and a bag to change more film, I'm at 15 pounds of total camera gear including the tripod. I haven't weighed the other stuff and that can vary greatly depending on how much food I need to carry, but I'm probably carrying a 35 to 45 pound pack depending on how long the trip is. Not really sure, most of the other stuff I have isn't too terribly heavy.

>>3401494
Well, at least the print looks good that's the part I care about.

>>3401496
Wind River, so you only should be mildly jealous. Mount Thor looks fucking insane. This mountain is a good alternative.

Haha that's what I was leaning towards, but I couldn't quite tell. And yeah, Mount Thor looks insane, it's #1 on my list of landscape destinations for 2019 (all of Baffin Island, desu).

But seriously, that would be a heck of a place to see. What time of year you thinking of going? A bit of a narrow season to visit up there.

Another Velvia. Same valley.

This is probably my favorite because it's sort of "unconventional" by modern landscape photography standards.

>>3401512

I think it sorta has to be in the June/July/August window, desu. I would prefer August so there's at least some semblance of "sunset" (and possibly aurora?) but I would guess the snow starts falling in September so you can't really risk it too much.

Glad you're enjoying the thread. That maple really captivated me as I wandered along the coastal hillsides. It just reached up into the foggy sky with all these little tendrils full of texture and detail, I'm glad it all came out in the sheet of film as it was an unusual exposure for me. And yes, the goal is to move out those matted prints so I can do a different style presentation next year at art shows. I'd be happy if you picked up a couple of em'

>>3401525
That's what I would think, a pretty short window indeed and I bet June is a mud/slush/bug pit. August would probably be the most pleasant time there, though I'm pretty sure crazy shit weather could happen whenever.

Same valley again, also Velvia.

So far it's been hard compromising between staying lightweight and bringing camera gear, usually I end up bringing mini tripod but that loses several good shots

Yeah it's definitely been a challenge to decide how to pack. I used to bring *everything* - my Toyo and four lenses, ten film holders, a bigger tripod. It was pushing 40 pounds for just the camera stuff. My thoughts was that I should just tough it out and that's how you do it, but I also rarely produced any shots from backpacking trips that I liked back then. I was fine with the weight of that for day hikes, but was weighed down and exhausted once I added the extra gear of an extended trip. I travel much lighter now and it really does keep me fresh for shooting. /out/ might be an ok place, stopped by there one time and it didn't seem like a bunch of bickering. That was a good while ago.

>>3401885
Thanks Shuggie

The landscape might start getting a little weird, desert rocks can twist the mind. That and the best shooting is often well before sunrise or after sunset, producing even light but very strong and glowing colors. Velvia 50.

makes sense man, sometimes I just gotta decide between packing light to enjoy the hiking part or packing heavy for the photography (im too poor to afford ultralight).
It's pretty impressive you pack that much camera stuff in addition to overnight gear (how else can you get sunset/sunrise shots) esp. given how much stuff you need to bring for large format

I definitely try to pack light-ish for stuff that's not photography, but nothing is really ultralight either. It's really just taken some time to select just what 4x5 gear I absolutely need to bring for backpacking. It's all about sacrifices too.

More desert on Velvia.

Exactly. That's why composition is the only thing left. There you have almost infinite possibilities.

Subject is boring, but my personal preference is nature and landscape. However, it needs an interesting composition to catch my eye, and keep it "caught". A picture you can just relax your eyes on, and no matter where you look in the picture, there is harmony that don't distract your experience of the picture. A good picture is an experience.

I'm going to take a break from the Velvia posts and do something really different.

These are a few I shot back in April, when I took an emergency trip out to Pennsylvania to see my grandfather while he was in his final trip to the hospital. The weather was mostly gloomy and spring has not arrived yet. Every day I rode my bike down to the hospital and took some different routes back to his home on a dirt road. I don't really know what to do with these but I'm going to dump a few here.

This is a landscape I hold dear to me, where I spent many summers as a kid. But I never really visited it this time of year, between seasons and not really all that beautiful. It was even hard to feel some of the nostalgia. While I've never lived there, it was always a spot that could be called "back home" where I was welcome by relatives (and on this trip even a very nice guy from /p/).

But it's a backward landscape and not an area of progress. Nestled up in the far Northwest corner of the state along the shore of Lake Erie, it's financially and socially forgotten land. Rural life is being choked out and made harder daily, take this image for example. About two years ago a semi carrying a load too tall (Sugar?) hit this bridge crossing the interstate and caused minor damage. They left it open for a few years as a one-lane bridge, but eventually decided to remove it for good. Demolition was almost complete when I was there. They will never rebuild it, meaning that locals must go many miles either way to cross the interstate and get into town. The other bridges in this corridor are also too low for the national standards, and will eventually be hit by semis and also reduced to nothing. Eventually the southern side of the interstate will be all but cut off from the lake and the communities up there.

The last image was drum scanned, this was just thrown onto the Epson with no dust clean up or anything.

All those bridges are not too low for national standards or I would have hit them. 13'6" is the standard and only a few places are below that on the Eisenhower System and all truckers know them.

That bridge probably got nailed by an oversize load that has no business being on that road anyway. PA is notorious for low hanging bridges off the interstate but if you aren't a nigger or a Swift driver you won't hit any of them. Most of the ones below 13'6" have huge signs and flashing lights that say you're gonna hit it, doesn't stop some people though.

PA in general is a dying state. They taxed all of their industry out of the state and are trying to make it back with sky-high fuel taxes and hysterically high toll road rates on 76 for truckers, it's 380 dollars one way for me to drive it, and I've done it once and it was a ghost town the whole trip.

Yes, it was definitely an oversize load, but I think just that 50 mile stretch of PA I-90 has bridges that are so low that they hit. There are no warning signs for them either, I've driven that stretch from Conneaut to Erie many times. Ohio spent a small amount of money to dig the road deeper under the bridges, but PA is completely broke and has done so much to repeatedly destroy its economy. The northwestern corner feels like another country sometimes.

>>3402896
I know I took more, but they got buried in a binder somewhere. Don't know how those three surfaced to be honest. Here's a few more I took from a years ago. I forgot to mention that the first tree roots image is from my grandfather's property. It's a 120 acre farm and woodland that's been in the family for at least 60 years. Not any more, it's already been sold and the home will likely go to ruin. Here's the view from the upstairs bedroom where I stayed as a child when visiting.

>>3402499

>>3402902

I-90? That's the oversize fault. There are signs before you get to that part of 90 that say something like max height 13'6" or low bridges ahead.

When those oversizes are planned they are supposed to check bridge heights and obtain permits from the state, and then they have pilot cars that go in front of them to warn of low bridges

Basically if you are a trucker and hit a low bridge you are so fucking dumb you can't even do basic math.
>>
>>3402902

If you want to do an abandoned rust belt set, Allentown and surrounding mining communities are a great place to start, I might actually take a few days off up there after Christmas and do that. There's a lot of stuff not far off 81 that would make excellent fodder for ghost town photos

Yeah that's how it goes. It was planned out that way and I understand why, but it's sad to lose that place that connected the family. Pic related is the view out the breakfast nook window, where my grandfather spent the majority of his day just seeing what's happening outside. A couple of these are 645 Portra 400 if anyone cares.

>>3402913
Glad to hear it, there's no shortages of images from there but most people do it in the evening instead of sunrise.

>>3402916
Oh yeah, I mean it's still a stupid trucker no doubt. But still sad to see the state destroy the bridge and further cut off the poor rural communities rather than making a reasonable repair.

>>3403098
Good to hear there's improvements. I'll keep re-evaluating some of these images, it seems a lot of people think there's an excessive color cast. Color cast is tricky when you've been staring at the image for a while because your eyes adjust, but I also don't like to remove too much of the natural character of the film. As far as the Astia, someone gave me a crazy cheap deal on ten boxes so I have about 200 sheets in the freezer. I don't use it all that often but I'll likely be randomly pulling it out of my ass for a few more years.

Another new sheet of Velvia.

2-why not do some """climate change""" series? if theres any of course. still, why not a LF series of the recently crisped trees from california?

3-are you still the next ansel?

4-i liked way more the flatbed scans, can you fuckign believe it?

I just recently got an Epson p800 and have been printing on baryta paper. Looks quite nice. This is of course for stuff 16x20 and smaller, I send out to a local lab for the big stuff. As far as getting out of the states, I really like the style of travel I can do around here - it allows me to spend the time I need to at each place and is just so pleasant. That doesn't mean I don't intend on going anywhere else, I do have some stuff in the works.

I was a technician for Volkswagen for about ten years. The entire time I worked there I was shooting sheet film as much as I could on the weekends and even before and after work days. I was always trying to get out as much as possible, and decided one day that I would make it what I do full-time. It was a long process, I went part time at the job for the last three + years I was there and eventually was able to cut the strings completely. I'm in my early 30s now.

Here's a sheet of Ektar from this summer, I finally have about a dozen negatives scanned in and need to do the inversions as I have time. Most of this summer had intense wildfire smoke, some days it made for terrible sunrises and sunsets, some days it made them quite nice especially by lengthening the golden hour.

Have you considered releasing a fine art book Alex? You’ve easily got enough material to do one for 4x5 and one for 6x17. I’d buy the shit out of those and I’m sure most of the other anons here would too.

You should give Canson Platine a go. Everything you like about most barytas and smoother

Yes, I would need a thousand people that would pre-order the book just to break even. I don't have the following to create something like that yet.

>>3405746
I might try that down the road. It'll be a while though because I just spent $1000 on baryta paper.

Here's some more Ektar.

Alex how do you wake up early to take these nice sunrise shots do you set up camp where you've already composed a shot or do you have a basecamp and trek out or do you just break camp while its still dark

Also i'd like to see some winter shots if you have any

4chan is most definitely _not_ unbiased or neutral. You'd get vastly different responses if you posted these on /b/ than here on /p/ for one. Secondly, the irony is that there is so much bias going every which way in different directions it gives the illusion of not backing a noticeably particular point of view. We all love and hate different things differently, only some people hate and love more.

It was at sunrise and the sun was shining through a little bit of wildfire smoke. The red light doesn't do much to the green pine needles but really lights up the reddish-brown trunks. I wouldn't argue that film does seem to exaggerate it sometimes.

>>3405886
It's a mix of both. Sometimes I start a hike in the dark and then find a composition in the predawn dim light. Sometimes I'm at an area for several days and find compositions a day ahead of time and remember where they are so I can return. Sometimes I even happen to camp really close to where I want to shoot, like when I'm backpacking.

Nothing new from this winter yet as it's just starting up in the mountains. Here's one from a while back on Provia.

>>3405963
Well said, /p/ is a confusing place at times but I guess I just like it.

hey Alex, do you have any tips on intimate landscapes in general ? (maybe more for winter photography since it's the season) where I'm from we have pretty boring landscapes so pics of grand vistas like the one above are not possible.
>>
Do you ever have issues with wind? I’d like to start shooting 4x5 but it’s windy as fuck where I live and I think the camera would be inoperable.
>>
Thanks for another thread, Alex.

Have you considered getting exposure through Youtube? I know you have a few quick instructional videos on your channel, but nothing that would draw in 'causal' viewers.

I think your work is leaps and bounds above some photography celebrities on there. It would be an absolute delight watching you go through the process of creating some of your shots (no homo).

What sort of landscape do you have around you? I live in a town on the prairie but have been able to find things around home for years. I shot around home more often back when I had a job and couldn't get away as often, but still I wander around several times a week looking for thing to shoot. About 20% of those trips are successful at best, and it's gotten much harder as the town has been rapidly growing and filling up with Americanized strip malls and apartment complexes. Old silos, grain elevators, barns, and history of all sorts are being torn down leaving a landscape full of Best Buys and Walmarts.

Do you have any forests, rivers, open spaces around you? Do you get snow often? Snow and frost completely changes a landscape, like with this frosty trees on a cold winter morning. This was down at a local open space a few years back (which is being torn up right now and is closed to the public). You have to look for shapes with the intimate landscape. I liked the way the treas made a large triangle that centered in the frame. You typically also want soft light as excessive contrast can be very harsh in the intimate scenes.

>>3406130
Wind is a constant enemy. With my fastest exposures ever being around 1/15th and most well over a second it's a challenge. Desert landscapes don't matter so much - it takes some serious wind to get the camera rocking - but vegetation will blur if it moves at all. You can get good at timing between gusts. Is it literally *always* windy or are there calm mornings or days sometimes?

Ah the YouTube question. Anytime I've done something with video I feel like it greatly takes away from my time producing images. I don't really love the format of video and don't care for or spend any time at all on YouTube. I'd rather read an article than watch a video, but I know I'm in the minority there.

I'd like to maybe work some short behind the scenes clips into my workflow (or perhaps educational stuff), but I don't want to go full Ben Horne on the production where I spend two weeks working on video for every day in the field and have to bring another 20 pounds of video gear, mics, sliders, tripods, etc...

YouTube is an insatiable community - even worse than cable TV watchers. You post one thing up there and people just want more, they get hungry in a way I've never seen on any media source. Which is great for exposure, but it takes constant nurturing and can quickly become your whole life. For now, I'm still toying with the idea, but photos and sanity come first.

Another winter photo for >>3406119 and wow this is an old one. Was still really new at negative film and would probably set the snow color a smidge more cool in tone today.

Ah that sucks man. Yeah we do get calm days but some of my best images have been in winds that would rip a 4x5 apart. I’m guessing you don’t have the same problem on your 6x17?
>>
>>3406407
the land near me is mostly farm fields now. but we have some really small forest trails and some prairies(but they are usually so small and flat you can see the neighborhood surrounding it) . but they only open at 8am(too late for sunrise in winter) and close before sunset. so I am mostly shooting midday. but trying to find a good subject in a dense forest is hard so that's why I try to get closer to the subject. but most of the shots I take are just ok, very rarely am I actually wow'd by the image, since the subject is still pretty boring.

and for the snow and frost. we get it every now and then, more recently it's been getting less and less. where our winters are above 32° so snow and frost doesn't stick. but every now and then we get a heavy snow. but one thing I do like is that with the fluctuation in temperature we have been getting a lot of fog.

In states like these are not great subjects but good composition just what's available? because when I look online for local inspiration, most of them are pretty awful or they all look the exact same.

Oh yeah, the 6x17 is super sturdy. But still, exposures are long so you'll be fighting the moving vegetation thing still. Honestly, a solid 4x5 like a Toyo can really handle some wind without wiggling unless its crazy wind. It's a bitch to use them though, holding the darkcloth and whatnot.

>>3406429
Keep wandering around, almost every landscape has a story to tell no matter how mundane it might seem. Sometimes shooting close to home has the advantage that you really gain intimate knowledge about the area, you learn all the ins and outs of the history, landscape, and what makes it special (even if it doesn't seem to be that way on the surface). And sometimes yes, it does come down to finding the best compositions with what's available.

>>3404345
Still not quite sure I understood this guy, but here's a photo of silos instead of a literal tree. This is from yesterday morning and was shot on Portra.

Lmao yeah, once you find out how easy and cheap home dev is taking film to a lab seems insane. I looked at prices for thedarkroom and they wanted $14/roll for 120 E6. Half as much as a 1 liter chemical kit that would be good for dozens of rolls.

It's one of the reasons I love being on the edge of the Great Plains so much. While I can travel an hour one way to get into the mountains, I can go an hour the other way to travel back in time. The tiny rural towns and settlements are still bleeding off what little population they have and moving into the larger cities, many old homesteads look like this and eventually get torn down and many others have been built and rebuilt and are still lived in. We have an oil and gas boom here which is bringing a lot of new infrastructure, but further into the plains (Western Kansas and Nebraska) you'll find a lot of this stuff. And like you said, graffiti is rare on any of it. No trespassing signs are more likely but not everywhere, such as this one.

>>3411280
It's the small details that matter.

Here's another angle of that building that works better at sunset. This is from earlier in the year. It's Provia so it has a rather different feel.

Thanks for the feedback. I really enjoy the softer tones and rural "landscape." As I'm sure you can imagine, it's not very marketable compared to pretty mountain landscapes. Even my mountain stuff is not what the average Joe is looking for as most people just want a photo of the place that they've actually been to. Since I tend to shoot more off-the-beaten-path places I have to find customers that actually like the image for what it is and not just the location.

Every now and then I get a customer that enjoys my more minimal and/or my rural landscapes and they are my favorite people as they actually enjoy the images that require me to push my boundaries a bit.

I'm one of those fools but I just started recently. I want to move to home development but I'm quite lost. What do you suggest? I just want to start with b&w even though I also shoot E6 (mainly Velvia50 and Provia) but I don't want to screw up with such expensive sheets to begin with. I'm not exactly sure about the steps and I don't know what to get, Paterson tank with Mod54 reel or jobo or whatever. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Home developing is quite easy actually, even for E6. I have a jobo processor now but you don't need one, I was hand dunking my film in an HP combi-plan tank (now discontinued), but the Mod54 looks like a good substitute. I had an older version of the Mod54 and had agitation issues with C41, but with such a short developing time of just a bit over three minutes any problems will show up badly. B&W and E6 are a lot more forgiving. Just make sure you have a good thermometer for the color stuff. In all honesty, you mostly just follow the instructions that come with the chemical kit. Chemicals for color stuff can be bought at Freestyle in the states.

Here's a new scan.

Glad to hear it. Working with Portra more for softer sunrise colors lately and really loving it.
>>
>>3415210
Yep, been there. I was driving by on a harsh bluebird day and it was awful for photos. We went into a more modern abandoned house maybe 10 miles north of that one and almost got attacked by barn owls, good shit.

I have mixed feelings about the double exposure, but it looks nice. Hopefully that thing stays around for another 100 years.

Actually, upon closer inspection, the one I went to didn't have a cellar. I'm wrong, carry on.
>>
>>3415248
>>3415249
There's a lot of buildings like that up there, but they are going away fast. Another 100 years sounds unlikely for most of them to be honest. Just look at that ghost town of Keota.

I really got into a huge Portra mood lately. Feeling the urge to drum scan my entire collection of oil and gas sheets so I started with a drum today. This will take months to complete as I have nearly 100 sheets of this stuff. Might slowly dump them here.

I've been watching you down at the wall, loving it and looking forward to whatever you come up with.

I think it will be good revisiting all the oil work, especially because there's been some new photos I've taken to add to the series in the last two years and just haven't done anything with them aside from develop the sheets. This fresh look will be productive I hope.

I'm not entirely sure it would sell to enough people to be even slightly financially viable (at least 1000 copies before you go to a publisher which gets you prices that aren't as ridiculous as blurb, etc), but perhaps it would be fun to make a couple once I drum scan them all in.

>>
such nice thread
>>
How do I learn to backpack and camp and stuff? I just day hike so I don't have enough time to reach really remote places and I miss all the good sunrises and sunsets.

How do you get so much access to oil drilling sites, too? If they're anything like the industrial site I work at, people would get pretty riled up if they saw someone wandering around, much less setting up a tripod and a huge camera.
>>
>>3417084
Yeah it's not my favorite.

>>3417102
Glad you're enjoying it

>>3417133
I started by going backpacking with what I had. All my stuff was crazy heavy. I bought a $15 tent and a $40 sleeping bag and my first night backpacking was in Glacier National Park ten years ago and I remember being cold and awake most the night through a thunderstorm. Then you start to learn things like to get a sleeping pad to keep you way warmer, and better clothes, etc. And then you get lighter stuff, and then you get stronger and go further. The first few years I never got very many good images from backpacking because I wasn't as well rested as I am now. Now I just love it!

The majority of the pumps and tanks are unattended nearly all the time, unless someone comes by to check on them or empty them. If someone pulls up I just act like I belong there, finish taking the image and leave. I got *very* quick at using a 4x5 through this series, knowing exactly what composition I wanted before I even thought about pulling out the camera. The rigs were a different story, I would pull up to a nearby berm and stand on the roof of my car with a wide lens and shoot. Only got chased off once and I told the guy that I would finish taking down my camera and leave immediately. I of course was just about ready so I snapped the shutter while he watched, not like he really know what I was doing. Then I took it down, got off the roof of my car and left.

Things have changed in the last few years with new laws requiring the drilling rigs to have these huge 4 story tall walls to reduce the drilling noise pollution. Now they only have one way in with a checkpoint, and you can't really photograph them from the outside with those huge walls. Even from the inside they would all look the same now.
>>
The American landscape is so fucking gorgeous man, why can't Australia look like that. It's so bland and boring in comparison
>>
What's the average cost per shot with 4x5? I'd assume drum scanning is the best option in the end, rather than a flatbed?

That's what you get for having such a geologically old continent. Sorry, mate. Granted there's some cool landscape there but certainly not as varied.

>>3417342
I'm at about $4 per sheet with color film. That's $3.50 ish for the actual film depending on the stock and $0.50 for developing myself.

And yes, drum scanning is the ultimate way to scan film of any format.

Alex, your opinion, whats the main difference between shooting digital and shooting slides?

you do some post process in your images right?
>>
>>3417455
The process is completely different, especially when it comes to setting up a large format camera. And I really quite like the colors and tones of most slides which gives you a great starting point for an image. As far as editing goes, *all* film scans are edited - whether they were editing by the photographer or by the film scanner software. I try to make slides look as close to the actual film as possible while setting a correct white and black point, and color negatives need a manual inversion.

hell fuckin' ya
>>
>>3418947
same anon

have you thought about getting a pretty extreme telephoto and compressing the farm scenes and mountains into the background more?

i don't know how LF works when it comes to long focal lengths (~200mm+ in 35mm terms) but i think it would be a neat exploration
>>
Hey alex, always love seeing your threads. Looking at your photos always gives me a sense that im improving my landscape/film IQ. every once in a while you post something that blows my mind e.g >>3401485

Seriously considering buying a print one day to hang up.
>>
>>3418947
>>3418949
It's been a lot of fun to shoot something different, really enjoying this take on my local stuff. And focal length has been one of the big changes for me. I would usually go after this stuff with a 90mm (about 28mm in 35mm) lens and get close, but many of these are taken with a 210 (about 70mm in 35mm). Longer probably wouldn't hurt these scenes either but I hate the idea of adding another lens to the bag.

>>3418952
Glad to hear it, anon. The world is a better place if we can all improve and it's nice to hear that you feel you're coming along. And yes, they always look better in print!

>>
why are you leaving these film borders on?
>>
>>3401389
Fuck man, the colors here are so amazing. How are you so good at colors. And it's not your chosen films, because you have to digitally scan all of this. Clearly digital sensors are capable of the color and dynamic range that you are able to get in these digital files.

But you definitely manage to eek out a lot more than the rest of us.
>>
>>3422204
Yeah the ground there was eh, and covered in a lot of cow shit. So I went for more sky.

>>3422298
Felt like it would be fun. No real reason.

>>3422322
I think that the film is a great starting point. I really like the colors of the slides as they are so it's just a matter of retaining them while taking care of any nasty color casts that it might have. And the drum scanner really helps pull the tones out of the slides, the scans really look just like the actual film and it's wonderful.
>>
>>3422755
Have you looked into the new Phase One trichromatic backs? I think that's the route to go if they ever stop producing LF sheets.
>>
>>3422322
>Clearly digital sensors are capable of the color and dynamic range that you are able to get in these digital files.
sorry to sidetrack, but this is quite an inaccurate leap of logic
what a monitor can display is very independent of the render capability of a digital sensor
>>
>>3422829
>what a monitor can display is very independent of the render capability of a digital sensor
right but in order for it to be displayed it had to have been recorded digitally
>>
>>3422863
you don't seem to get it
to begin with you aren't using a scanner that takes 5 mins to capture a backlit image the size of your palm, to photograh a snowy mountain
but i'll stoo since this looks borderline bait
