thanks, but unfortunately i'm not that worthy yet...

New toy

I've been enjoying shooting portraits lately and have a few ideas for projects I want to work on so I added to my medium format film collection this week. This fills the gap that my Pentax 67 and Mamiya RZ67 don't quite make the cut on. Welcome the new addition...












See if I can't find a beautiful muse this weekend to pose for me. I'm gonna go buy chemicals and a tank so I can process my own film. It's been about 15yrs since I last did that but I'm super excited about it. I'm so over digital when it comes to anything but commercial work.

Viva la film

Wow!

Stupid huge file size and strange workflow but the optics and rez is incredible! Many are shooting stills with it as well, (mostly studio).

Any prints yet Sheki? Did the smell of stop bath take you right back?

What "gap" are you filling with a 4x6 negative out of a Hassie that a 6x7 neg out of the Mamiya and/or Pentax won't provide?

Just bid on a new lens for the Hasselblad and was reminded of this post. Been back from a trip to Argentina for a couple months now and have a few images to share from Patagonia...
All shot with the Hassi using an 80mm lens (currently my only lens). Images are amazingly sharp and I'm really loving the film and scanner combo. I can get a much better range out of the film scanned than I could ever printing with an enlarger. I also have spent some time working with digital color prints and have learned to appreciate them... when done properly (they usually are not). A digital print is very archival with inks lasting 80+ years vs. a traditional C print which has a shelf life of about 5 years before the paper yellows and the colors shift (this is if kept out of strong ambient light).

Here are a few images from the trip..

John - you may have missed your calling as a photo analyst. The things you find in innocuous pictures are impressive. You would have kicked ass working for the CIA, DIA, NRO, or NASA. Maybe if you ever get tired of EE...
