Gorgeous photos, OP!I'd love to get into large format, or even back into film in general. I just kept taking roll after roll of duds, so I figured I should go back to digital and improve my skills first.
Really gorgeous photos, anon. Do you do any cityscapes? Also, let me ask some boomer questions like what is your favorite thing about shooting large format and what are your least favorite things about it?
>>3975183Yea pretty much the same erosion creating these.This is another in a different location called Zone.It's all built up around it and I don't really like this one much.>>3975193Thank you man>>3975198>what is your favorite thing about shooting large format and what are your least favorite things about it?Thanks, good questions.Favorite thing is the complete control of the process, from planning to printing, going through every step myself.Also the constant learning experience and the suprise effect everytime I open up the tank.There are a lot of pros in this medium, but also some quite nasty drawbacks.Least favorite thing, eh, I guess the cost of film, mostly.Recently Kodak increased the prices of pretty much all its emulsions, including my dear Ektar.In my country, but more like in all Europe, we pay much more than a fellow American LF photographer.Also, changing film in the holders while on travel is pretty tiresome.I tend to bring my 4x5 even in difficult places, not just my Zion playground *cough*

Awesome thread lovely pics ignore the haters and keep posting
>>3975314>still can’t post a photo
>>3975164>pain and sufferingthese images look very organic, especially the first few landscapes. I'm a noob looking to buy my first kit, what aspects of your photography gear helped you achieve this? The colors seems very warm and analogue, and it feels as though I'm standing there looking at the landscapes.I'm about to buy into the M43 system, fwiw.
>>3975229How do you get the same colors without owning such an obtuse camera?
>>3975056>>3975057>>3975058Is shooting actual Ektar or Velvia the only way to take saturated images without getting Ken Rockwell levels of cringe?Also, can you give some general advice about subjects that look good with that kind of film? I bought a roll of Velvia to give it a try, but it's been in my fridge for a year because I'm so afraid to make a mess of it.
>>3975229I also shoot digital, not often though.I posted here a series about adriatic baths some years ago, hence this name.>>3975323Thanks!>>3975381>what aspects of your photography gear helped you achieve this?People really overestimate gear, man.Yes I have expensive equipment and yada yada, but I got this to make my life easier on the field.I don't think there is a single element that flipped the cards alone.It's just a lot of trial-and-error, both on the field and in the digital darkroom.You mention the warm feeling and that's interesting, that's part of understanding what makes a live scene visually compelling without telling your viewer "yea I totally slapped a filter on this".Luminance and color contrasts are pretty important to achieve a good result.Thunderstorm approaching over Val di Mello, rollei rpx 25
>>3975391>can you give some general advice about subjects that look good with that kind of film? I bought a roll of Velvia to give it a try, but it's been in my fridge for a year because I'm so afraid to make a mess of it.Slides like Velvia can burn your hands very quickly if you never used them before.Sure they look amazing on a light table when properly exposed, but they work best in specific conditions such as reflected light.I'm not a fan of slides, because most of my scenes don't fit. Velvia's DR is limited to maybe 6-7 stops and becomes messy in strong shadows making them basically impossible to recover with a flatbed.A spotmeter is mandatory with transparencies, unless you have a mirrorless or something.I love the flexibility of color negatives, you can do much more with it, but it comes at the cost of learning how to properly convert it into a decent image. I think this is what scares people off the most?There are some tools for conversion but I never trusted them, I scan the negatives as positives and work my way manually.So I'd say go with Velvia50 (rip) for reflected light and intimate scenes, Provia/Ektachrome for the same thing but also they have slightly more latitude so they work fine for dawns/sunsets, Ektar for punchy colors and compositions in direct sunlight but expose it at box speed, Portra for subtle tones and generally everything else. Portra 160 can look a lot like Ektar when exposed at box speed, but looks pretty good even when overexposed.Pic related is a 25 minutes exposure on portra 160 at box speed.

I must say I love your photos! In the spirit of not being a no photo I’m posting this 8x10 contact print. You might recognise the area, it’s close to your mountain photos. This was shot in June 2014. I distinctly remember using a yellow filter to make the flowers brighter. I wanted a layered effect on the hills leading up to the mountains. It is Ilford delta 100 at EI50 with n-2 development. Sadly I’ve lost the negative, so there’s no way of doing a digital remastered scan, which saddens me. Such is life[EXIF data available.

Some great photos ITT. I have a lot of respect for the large format users. However for my own snapshots 35mm film is plenty fine enough.

>>3975469Last one from Castelluccio di Norcia I just developed.I composed this with the 5:2 panoramic ratio in mind but it seems to work fullframe too. You be the judge.Poppies are always problematic with ektar because they tend to saturate the red channel very quick, so I switch to LAB colorspace for a few tricks.
>>3975503I don't know why nobody mentioned it before, dude, but you've everything severely overexposed for screens.

>>3975505I'm on a calibrated monitor but I get your point.I often play on the right edge because that's my style but it may be a tad too much for some.Sometimes it's too bright for me too so I go back and start the editing process all over again from the negative, or just lower a curve on luminosity blending if I think that does the trick.That's why you see "v2/v3/v4" and so on in filenames.If I got it right, I think you should see the color version of pic related well balanced.Composition is nothing to brag about but it's a good example of an image with both shadows and strong highlights.

I'm proficient in shooting manual on DSLR and have a sense of how to expose for 35, but for distant subjects like these I'd only be able to guess. I understand zone and the triangle, and have used old school light meters before, but am curious about how you come to a conclusion about how to shoot.

>>3980083Sorry to breat it too you, but large format is film from 4x5 and upwards. Your photos are small format.

Is is possible to get similar photos from just bracketing and stitching photos from a digital camera?I mean I get the whole film thing, digital isn't a replacement for film, etc, but I feel like with an 85mm lens, tripod and lightroom you can probably get 90% there right?

>>3980154Big rez isn't why the only reason to shoot lf. The level of control you have over tilt and shift is amazingIve started doing cityscapes and cars on lf and I'll post some soon. Really want to do some portraits though

Damn, I wasn't expecting this thread to be still here. Happy new year guys.I don't really have new images right now, but I'll be developing more color soon from my most recent trip.>>3980061>Any advice on gear to start in LF?Get cheap stuff if you are not 100% sure you will commit long-term to the process. LF can be simple but it is not for everyone, as in it takes patience and it's often cumbersome (holders prep, setup, fiddling etc).Will you shoot architecture or in studio? Look for used monorails, they are heavier and bulky but allow for extended movements. Hiking/adventure landscape LF? Get a folding camera such as Intrepid (cheapest camera to buy new). I use a Chamonix F2 now but some of these were taken on a Intrepid mk3. The Chamonix is on another level, but it also costs 5 times more. They do the same thing tho.About lenses, there is basically nothing new so you will always buy used. Depending on what you want to shoot, you can start with something between 90 and 150mm. Refer to this for further research: https://www.largeformatphotography.info/lenses/LF4x5in.htmlFilm, start with black and white, Foma 100 is amongst the cheapest film for LF. You don't have to sell a kidney every time you mess it up. Move to color only when you know exactly what you are doing and how to process it, and if you like it ofc.
>>3980061>how do you meter for these images?I use a Pentax digital spotmeter. Prices skyrocketed for this thing (what didn't?) and are absolutely batshit insane right now, but it's a pretty nice, accurate and fast instrument.Long story short, I calculate a median value after metering the brighest and the darkest area.In more detail, I take a look at the scene and evaluate it at first sight (more or less bright, dark or soft shadows, clear separation of highlights and shadows, where I want the viewer's eye to be led, and so on), then I take in consideration what film I'm shooting (negative film has much better DR than slide film), then I start sampling the scene with the spotmeter.I try to expose for the subject of the photo and don't get too far from the EVs of the brighest and darkest spots.>>3975167This was simple, clear sky in full daylight, 25A filter, exposed for the brighest areas minus 1EV.Shadows were not important, they were darkened in post.>>3975168The median value here was the given by the lighest spots of the sand in the foreground.Brighest point was the reflected light on the waves on the left, darkest one was the right side of the rock.>>3975171Very flat scene here, it was a foggy day, you could easily shoot this with velvia 50.I wanted to enhance subject separation so I exposed for the brighest areas of the pyramids, leaving the rest to towards the shadows.>>3975156This one, for instance, is more difficult than the others above.I exposed for the snow on the peaks hit by sunlight, and just did that value minus 1EV.
Can anyone recommend some good Instagram accounts for this?

Getting 2 8x10 ilford delta 100 drumscans back on monday or tuesday. Excited to look at the level of detail, but I fear my compositions are as good as the photos posted ITT
>>3982839>>3982842>>3982844I think the landscape photos are okay, but I think the large format really comes into its own in the linked photos. I wonder why. The telephoto impression with a yet large image crop makes perhaps a part of it, somehow I think a foreground object with yet much detail in the environment does the most for me. But I can't put my finger on it.
So I got my drum scans back today. These are some quick edits, I know I'll be going back to them. I'm not very satisfied with the compositions, but it is what it is. I think the contrast on both are a little wonky. Been a long time since I've worked with scans

>>3982844why LF looks so realistic like so good like i bet theres digital medium format cameras that can resolve more, or you could stitch 1000 DSLR shots, but none gives you the actual fucking glossy texture of the car, you can even feel it in the fingertips, what the shit is this
okay you basketball americans this is it. ill unearth my lf camera and bring back some pictures, hope you like them you fools

>>3985842>>3987183Not op but theyre my photos, thanks guys, appreciate it
>>3986925Because you mostly see large format pictures from people who have a fairly good grasp of photography. Give a bunch of nice LF-cameras and film to random poeple or random photogs and rhe results will not be like that. Trust me, I know.
>>3975440You can make a new negative from the contact print. Then you can reproduce the print again. I have done this with good results.
>>3986925Digi medium format does not resolve more than LF film and that is a fact.

>>3987183>>3987185>>3987509>>3987513i believe its something related to the ability to detect and render humidity and water in general. digital tends to suck this aspect out, thats why it renders so moodless. foveon can render water proper somewhat, thats why it looks sometimes so uncannily like film.i have no proof of this but i believe it with my soul :-)~~~
>>3987509Can you go more into detail here? perhaps put a sample film picture of what you're trying to describe? I think you may be onto something.
>>3987624>>3987173That is a 1:1 crop from a drunscanned negative. It’s 320mpx.
>>3987624https://petapixel.com/2020/03/19/8x10-film-vs-150mp-digital-can-150-megapixels-compete/This comparison is with Fuji Velvia, which according to my research is actually less sharp than some negative films. The bottleneck with LF is the lens resolving power itself, because it’s difficult to make a lens with full coverage of the negative that has high resolving power, so there is a wide variance of sharpness in available LF lenses. This is why I also think that 4x5 ultimate resolution is comparable to 8x10 despite being a 1/4 of the area.[EXIF data available.

>>3987629>>3987674I meant the humidity and rendering bits, not the IQ aspect.6x9 and 35mm still have some of that magic don't they?
>>3987676Besides resolution, water is fluid which is sort of the exact opposite of a pixel. film, which is a random assortment of silver halide grains suspended in gelatin, is capable of more organic imagery by nature of being more organic itself. LF film is probably as close as you can get to representing how your eye functions.
>>3981801>>3981803I shoot around this spot a lot. It has some cool compositions in it.

Damn, my heart is so moved. Shoutouts to everyone here.
I haven't been into photography for like 12 years. I used to shoot a lot of 4x5 and 8x10. I know nothing about digital cameras today but can digital cameras these days match the resolution of 8x10 100ISO film? I used to make prints from 8x10 that were 24x36 and the details were tack sharp when you stuck your eye 3 inches from the print. People making digital prints would always say how you could get that from the digital cameras back then but then I'd look at their prints and it was clear they knew nothing about what they were talking about. Are there digital cameras that have this resolution now?Shooting large format is so nice because each shot is so expensive that you have to spend a huge amount of time thinking about what you are actually going to take a picture of. Works out to benefit you in the end.
>>3990563duh, should have read the post a couple up. So large format is still the king when it comes to fine art prints. I had this teacher back in artschool (Nick Nixon) and he would do street photography with a 16x20 and make contact prints with that. The prints were unreal. I'd try to copy him and found out because the people you are taking pictures of don't actually know when the shot is going to be taken because you use the cable release, this would innately make their visage really natural, you wouldn't have to try to get them to look genuine like what can happen with smaller cameras.
I'm looking at prices for 8x10 film now and it's interesting that it's still the same price as 15 years ago. ($2 per black and white, $10 per color)
>>3990563LF is still unprecedented in terms of large prints. Even gfx100 can only capture 12k pixels on the long edge, which is only a 40" print on the long edge at 300 ppi. I normally scan my 4x5 at 4800 ppi, which gives me 80" on the long edge at 300 ppi. I think Ektar 100 is the highest resolution film on the market. Slide films have lower grain, but very soft when enlarged to a high degree. Obviously anything LF is gonna beat at basically any digital camera when printing at anything reasonable (30-40" on the long side).The main reason I like LF is the process, I leads me to take better images since I consider things more. Additionally, LF slides are something to see irl. The color is unlike anything I've ever seen from.[EXIF data available.

>>3990697Hmmmmm sammiches, yumm
>>3990697yea the process was just as much of an advantage as the huge resolution makes you actually care about every shot
>>3990697Imagine spending hours setting up, composing, developing and printing a photograph of a sandwich with hair on it.
>>3990762The hair is on the slide when it was scanned. >>3990743I ate it shortly afterwards
>>3990697As good as this pic looks, why didnt you do more front tilt? Isnt that one of pros when working with lf?
>>3990697$10 snap if you devd yourself. Twice if you didn't.
>>3990823front tilt is the shit that makes everything look like a scale model the only movements on LF cameras that really do something useful are the ability to shift the front plane up and down so you can make verticle things actually look verticle when using wide lenses instead of having them bowed out or slightly askew
>>3990907I can tell you have never used one
>>3986949lolCont. of >>3985842Reply to >>3986939Well, you just use what you have and it makes a difference how the picture is generally captured. With a smaller image format but constant field of view, the image wouldn't look like this right away. You'd have to use a lens with a wider angle and wider aperture and adjust the ISO or exposure time and would still suffer in image details.The camera position and the differences between angle of view and field of view can be neglected.>>3982839Do you recall the focal length? Also, what's your exact image format?
>>3991402Obviously 6x12 120That lens seems very nice. Very sharp and smooth oof.
>>3991402It's a fuji 80mm f8. My other lens is a 180mm f5.6 and I have never felt the need to get anything more. Cam is intrepid mk 4.Large format is lots of fun. I love my 6x12 back
>>3990823Yes, there is a slight amount of tilt. . I considered the ingredients of the sandwich to be the main subject, and made them all in focus.[EXIF data available.
