We shot this at night, after dark. The subject, an author, wanted an early morning, sunlit, casual, friendly and inviting look.

I literally had about 3 mins to shoot this as she was checking out of a resort and before she got in a cab for the airport. So, the plan went bye-bye and I grabbed what I could in the time available. One light and a prayer...

Please feel free to critique any and all of my photos so I can get get better.

These were shot with a D300, then heavily post processed. All were first converted to B&W then colorized with Corel Painter, along with other assorted tricks and mischief with PS and Topaz
Main camera left 8" Fresnel (strobe), fill (in the wrong place due to space) even further camera left 8' octabox, hair/kickers 2- 5' strip boxes high camera right and directly behind subject

@ David Labota above.

Wow! That is an amazing image from a compact camera. No blown highlights in the windows, nice tonal gradation, I seriously thought this was medium format film when I first saw it..

Based on the very misleading title of this thread, I was going to post some 16mm and Minox but I think I'm in the wrong place. Do we really need another digital photography thread? Are there not thousands of places on the internet to see that stuff?

I'd say you're very welcome to post your film-based small format shots. And I for one do like that there are two or three places where digital pictures can be posted on here. It gives me some insight into how the LF photographers here work on smaller formats. Besides, if anything non-LF can be posted here, then that could be a point of debate as well as there are thousands of places online where these things could be posted and yet, the smaller format threads are quite popular. I'm sure I'm not alone in saying I enjoy them.

Now back on-topic, I'd suggest.This was shot about a decade ago. On film...

If we're talking about digital, too, which I didn't realize, here's
another. This was actually a test shot for a 4x5 shoot, but I
preferred this one from all of them. Nikon D300, micro-Nikkor:

Yes, you're in the wrong place if you want to complain about someone posting "everything else" in an "everything else" forum. Perhaps you thought you were at APUG?

I used a polarizer on this and I think I lost a lot of great highlights because of it. I would not use a polarizer next time, just to see if I got a nicer sheen on her coat.

Here's something a bit different. Paper negative selfies. Pre-flashed grade 2 RC paper cut to ~65mm x 35mm size, taped to pressure plate of old Minolta X700, set to aperture priority mode, ISO 25 with +2 stops exposure compensation dialed in, for effective ISO of 6. Lens set to f/4, camera determines the shutter speed, which was around 2 seconds. Developed in dilute paper developer, taped to inside wall of 2-reel stainless tank, rotary processed on its side using about 85ml of chemistry.

I appreciate the supportive comments. Thanks! Janice helped me move some stuff into the studio, and she was kind enough to let me take some shots sans makeup. It's a small room, but it's such a relief to have a dedicated space. It's in an art gallery (http://www.sharefineart.com/). They have a number of small rooms upstairs that artists can rent. Mine is about 17 feet long and 12 foot wide on the big end, with a 10 foot ceiling. The camera end narrows to 7.5 feet. The walls are light gray. I painted the background wall with a couple of shades of gray using the Woolie, a faux finishing tool.

While I used digital today, the plan is to move to my recently acquired Fuji GX680; and the long term goal is to get my Century No. 9 8x10 studio camera up-and-running. I've seen some very good work here with xray film, and using that would make 8x10 portraiture affordable for me.

Yeah, I should have brought out the shoes a bit more; is that what you mean?

We had an unexpected audience and I think she was going commando...
Maybe I should PS that?

I do like the tension of the balls, but I do not like the arrangement, and possibly the chosen colors.

Yes, more leg and shoes. My eyes kept flashing off her to those balls. Maybe just the Eight ball closer to pocket? It's like a unanswered question in that position. As she is, with averted eyes, but a lot of skin showing.

Don,

This collection of photos by your father are excellent. As a former government military historian, I recommend doing a Google search of Army history organizations. They might be very interested in a establishing and archiving a permanent collection of prints in your father's name. Of course, they would prefer the originals. Either way, his photos would be available for use by researchers--and also available for viewing by his and your descendents.

Thanks Keith, I really hadnt thought that far ahead. I've been in possession of the negs for twenty five years and just getting around to scanning them.

I've done exactly what you've suggested with my documentary work. I worked an arrangement with a museum that is taking possession of about 100,000 of my negatives documenting obscure practices of Appalachian culture over the past sixty years. They've established a special collection for educational study.

Great idea, thanks.

Thanks Peter; No soft focus on my visit to England; I traveled light. Everything I needed for 4 days in my backpack that fit the size/weight requirements for carryon luggage. It was a snow squal when I left Maine, and we had 8 inches of fresh snow upon my return. It has since mostly melted. I'll have to find other things besides snow to photograph soon.

Corran; Family photos are tough and that is good. I am a sucker for the tessar background too.

jp
14-Apr-2015, 13:37
The computer is in the park in it's original building, but is managed/staffed separately for some reason. Apparently there's some drama around that and all the money coming in for improvements, but the people there were as sweet and pleasant and down to earth as could be, and I think I managed to capture some of that humbleness and down to earthness in my photo.

Corran
14-Apr-2015, 13:51
I agree, and I would be fascinated with the computer. Old computer stuff is quite interesting - I was taught how to do basic programming with punch cards in a gifted class in elementary school (of course I remember nothing of it now). My grandfather was an electrical engineer for the air force and then freelance so I would see old tube electronics all the time in his shop and would play with old parts and such.

Corran & JP, great photos. I agree on the Tessar. They're a sleeper. I bought into the Rollei 2.8F for a long time & then sold it for a super angulon xl. Eventually I missed the Rollei & bought an old Rolleiflex T & had it tuned up by Harry. I've become totally enamored of the tessar. It really is a lens of character. The Super Ikonta, as you demonstrate C, is also in a class by itself. Beautiful images, both!

Corran
18-Apr-2015, 22:39
Thanks Greg!

I continue to be enamored by my Leica M9's skin tones lately. I've been using it more for commercial work after having calibrated the rangefinder which I knocked out of alignment the first day I owned it. Anyway, here's a photo from today as the wind was blowing in a storm using the M9 with a Nikkor 8.5cm f/1.5 and SB-800 flash:

This was shot with the Minolta Dynax 7 (which always accompanies my digital Sony cameras when on assignment), and the Minolta 85mm/f1.4, on Kodak Duplicating Slide film that must have been 20 years old.

I must say I am having trouble getting sharp 35mm scans from my Epson V700 and I may have oversharpened this one in Photoshop, although Flickr tends to apply some sharpening too. No post-processing apart from sharpening and a very slight color correction.

Theo, the V700 isn't ideal for 35mm film; for best results, the coolscans and like scanners made for 35mm strips are better.

The first is the same hard lighting used for the dslr picture, and the second is with a softer main light.

Interesting change in era. Which does she prefer?

What lens?

Peter De Smidt
28-Jul-2015, 09:36
The lens is a Fuji GX680 190SF, with the first picture at f/22 and the second at f/11. The main light in the first one was a 11.5" Speedotron reflector with grid, and in the second case it was a 48" Octobox.

I'm not sure why, but the images look softer on screen in Firefox than they do in PS. It's odd, because I'm hosting them on my Dropbox account, and so there shouldn't be additional compression or resizing.

I've been taking expensive DSLRs in shoulder deep or neck deep water a lot this week, and it's turned out successful. I haven't soaked a camera and have gotten a few nice photos. For this, I kept my camera out of the rain while posing / setting up by keeping a kayak next to me with my pelican case in the seat. When it was time to shoot, I brought out the camera, gunned it on continuous-high, and put it back before it got many drops on it. This is with my D600 and sigma 50/hsm.

With LF I try to get not just a pretty picture, but a mood or feeling of some sort. I think this photos shows that sort of relaxation and appreciation of a gentle shower on a warm summer day.

Thank you for the kind comments. (Lauren likes them as well.) I'm definitely at the "beginning" stage of portrait photography. Lauren, who just turned 17, wanted me to do her Senior Portraits. These two are from the studio.

In both cases the camera was a D600 with a 135mm AIS manual focus Nikkor lens @ f/8.5. The main light was a 48" Fotodiox Octobox on a boom with a Speedotron 102 head. That's all that was used for the second picture. For the first picture, the one where she was leaning against the wall, we also used a round reflector bellow and in front of her, along with two Photogenic monolights with grids, one at each side. Both were pointed at her hair and the wall.

I used Lightroom for raw processing. I made a custom color profile for the reclining photo, but I preferred "camera neutral" for the other photos. The retouching was pretty straight forward, with some cloning, healing and work on frequency separated layers.

I wanted to shoot some film, but we ran out of time, as we did some outside shots as well.

Bbbbut Ken Rockwell says Nikon's colors are off and you need a Fujifilm camera to get proper skin tones! (Nothing against Fuji. I own both an X100s and a D300)

Thanks. Sometimes I feel like my photographic style is a bit too firmly anchored in the 1960s, though, and I'm not sure how to break out.

Roger is a well-known violist, and a very expressive person, so I had a good model. I shoot a lot of musicians, and they're easy models because they know how to look good and don't mind being the center of attention. In front of a camera they easily click into performing mode.

Bored with the movie the wife picked out, so, I converted one of my earliest digital captures, from about 2006 or so, shot with the Olympus UZI. Over edited for sure, but I like to think I've gotten better over the last 9 or so years.

I opened my front door and this crew was right there! I asked permission from all and all nodded, I know most speak English well. Then I gave the Facebook page they would be posted on, which is called 'Friends of the Bloomingdale Trail'.
It was 'the' moment and I shot with what I had, a new iPod 6. Shot as in camera pano and cropped vertically. I really like this camera.

Chrism, you seem to have a real good connection/communication going with all these hospital people! Bunch of people putting up nice portraits in this thread and the LF portraits this month!

After lights out last night, I heard some noise in the girls room. I peaked in and my older daughter was reading to the younger one. I went and grabbed the nearest camera which was my wife's D50 with 50/1.8d. A quick guestimate in exposure compensation and lightbulb-white balance setting and I got what I wanted for a candid. I snuck into the room and took a couple photos, which the girls completely ignore because they are used to being photographed and they were quite involved in the book. The blue color is from blue/green walls and some cooler white-balanced LED christmas lights that are sometimes used for low illimunation.

JP, sometimes chance hands us better opportunities than we can deliberately set up. Thanks for posting an example of making the most of such a chance.
