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

>>3401813
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.

>>3402432
>it's all been done already
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.

Fuck me. Same thing happened when my grandmom died, greedy cousins parceled it out the first chance they got.

I know it's not your bread and butter but I think you should explore more stuff like

>>3402499
>>3402902
>>3402906 (although the lighting is bad here)

It looks great on LF. Obviously there's not enough abandoned stuff out on the plains to make this worthwhile but we got plenty of ghost towns up in the hills.

>>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.

>>3402921
Oh yeah I lived in Allentown for three months about 12 years ago. Quite the industrial wasteland.

>>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.

1-why in fuck havent you go back to photographing silos? i get it trees are pretty, but damn how can you be commited to drum scan a literal fucking tree. not even a burnt tree, a dumbshit tree.

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?
