  1. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Before fully turning to his digital Phase One IQ4/Alpa XY/Rodenstock setup, Gursky did use a lot of Fuji Provia and transparency. I heard from a photographer who knows another photographer who...

  3. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    I'm simply asking out of genuine curiosity. I'm also asking because I'm hoping this might reveal Gursky's choice in film (especially his use in transparency) a little more.

    What current line of...
  4. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Any takers?

    If I wanted to take a 4x5 shot of the Rhine to scan and manipulate like Gursky did in his 1996 version (https://www.andreasgursky.com/en/works/1996/rhein-1, not the famous Rhine II...
  5. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Yeah, I did notice some Portra in there too. Where do you see the boxes of CDUII?

    Since you clearly have much more experience than I do, if I wanted to take a 4x5 shot of the Rhine to scan and...
  6. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Why does Gursky overwhelmingly prefer transparencies over negatives?

    While watching that documentary on Gursky ("Long Shot, Close Up") creating one of his photos (Hamm, Bergwerk Ost), I noticed...
  7. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    My girlfriend actually managed to answer my original question by finding this image on Instagram:

    194016

    This is a 2017/2018 photo of Gursky working on an image not yet released of an ocean...
  8. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Yes, of course. I'm very familiar with the economics concerning Gursky's works. He and his gallerists (Victoria Miro, Sprüth & Magers) decided to sell his works as if he's a painter/serious artist...
  9. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    I believe you, Greg, and Oren are right. Looks like the Sinar F2 5x7 model. Gursky was obviously fond of the 5x7 format, likely because it was a good compromise between a 4x5 (which he used often)...
  10. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Can anyone tell me what 5x7 camera model Gursky is using in this photo?

    193896

    I think this very camera might be the same one that he took his most famous pictures with.
  11. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Well, I've made the jump. I went ahead and bought the Sekonic L-778 Dual Spot meter for $150 from an avuncular elderly photographer in SoCal's Inland Empire. The meter looks fairly new and hasn't...
  12. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Does anyone recommend the Sekonic L-758dr, or is that just overkill?

    So far, as far as spot meters are concerned, I'm thinking of the Sekonic L-778, the Pentax Digital spot meter, and the Minolta...
  13. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I just received word back from them saying that they have no more spare parts in their stock anymore. :/
  14. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    So I found a Sekonic L-778 spot meter for sale for $150.

    Is this one that you guys would recommend? (I shoot color negative and transparency. I'm also planning to shoot a lot of night photography,...
  15. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    So I called Quality Light Metric in Hollywood to ask if they can get me the spare dials and perhaps calibrate the SinarSix. It turns out that they have no idea what my light meter even is and, that...
  16. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Thank you so, so much! Really appreciate this! 🙏
  17. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Yeah, I don't really want to give up on it, unless I absolutely have to.

    I found an instruction book at good old cameramanuals.org...
  18. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Wow, those Horseman meters look great! I just checked them out on eBay. Is there a good reason to get an averaging meter like this over, say, a spot meter? (I'm still learning about meters.)
  19. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Whoa! Thanks for the suggestion!!! �� I had no idea that LA had a dedicated light meter repair shop.

    I'll contact them tomorrow, for sure!
  20. Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I think the SinarSix/Gossen Light Meter (see photo) that I purchased either isn't working properly, or I truly have absolutely no idea how to use it. Because of this, I find myself relying on a light...
  21. Re: Best way to repair small light leak in bellows?

    Thanks to all for the suggestions!

    Has anyone had success with black silicone RTV sealant? Or black liquid electric tape?

    I only ask because I have both.
  22. Best way to repair small light leak in bellows?

    Hi all,

    So I'm noticing a very tiny light leak in my Linhof Technikardan 45 accordion bellows. It's very small, but noticeable if you shine a flashlight directly on top of it.

    The accordion...
  23. Re: Negative vs. Transparency - Pros and Cons | What's Your Favorite Type?

    Yes, of course I read about what you recommended for filters - pale salmon 2A to adjust for the cyanish tendencies, amber 81A for any blue overcast, and a stronger amber 81c for any deep blues at...
  24. Re: Negative vs. Transparency - Pros and Cons | What's Your Favorite Type?

    What should I know about Kodak Ektar 100? (It's the film I'm using for my 4x5 and medium format backs.)

    What I mean by that is, is it good for landscapes, night photography, and/or portraiture? Do...
  25. Re: Negative vs. Transparency - Pros and Cons | What's Your Favorite Type?

    ALL great advice!

    If I'm shooting Todd Hido-esque night shots with Kodak Ektar 100, what is the reciprocity failure of said film? How should I meter a street scene with just a few neon lights and...
  26. Negative vs. Transparency - Pros and Cons | What's Your Favorite Type?

    Being relatively new to LF photography, I've been extremely eager to experiment and play with different types of film. I appeal to you experts to point me in the right direction. Also, if you have...
  27. Re: Do you have any tips/techniques for Night Photography?

    Does anyone here have any recommendations for film for night shooting?

    I have 120 Kodak Ektar 100 for my medium format backs (6x12 and 6x17) and, again, Kodak Ektar 100 for my 4x5 holders.

    I'm...
  28. Re: How Large Can I Print a 4x5 Drum-Scanned Negative Before The Resolution Degrades?

    Joshua,

    Thanks for your input! I checked out your website, and I have to say, your work is fantastic. Your interior shots remind me of Candida Höfer's work.

    Did you use a medium format back...
  29. How Large Can I Print a 4x5 Drum-Scanned Negative Before The Resolution Degrades?

    For some of my fine art LF work, I'd like to print my drum-scanned or Hasselblad-Imacon Flextight-scanned 4x5 (100 ISO) negatives/transparencies to 6' x 8' in size.

    That said, in your experience...
  30. Re: Do you have any tips/techniques for Night Photography?

    Absolutely amazing!!! Your cameras look simply phenomenal! Have you ever tried using a medium format digital back for your Toyo VX23D or Cambo Wide DS?

    What I meant was what specific parts did you...
  31. Re: Do you have any tips/techniques for Night Photography?

    That's so funny. I had the Sony a7R and upgraded to the Sony a7R III and, like you, I much prefer the a7R. It's just a better design. Also, I have a Frankencamera of my own!
    Here's my Sony a7R III...
  32. How Do You Clean Your Lenses & Filters?

    1.) Do you guys have any suggestions or procedures for cleaning lenses and filters?

    2.) How dirty does a lens or filter have to get before you decide to start cleaning it?

    I'm currently using...
  33. Re: Do you have any tips/techniques for Night Photography?

    I don't mean to cross-pollinate with my other thread, but do any of you guys use UV filters to protect your lenses, or do you think it's a waste of money?
  34. Re: Do you have any tips/techniques for Night Photography?

    Thanks so much again for the extra advice!

    I also know and experience that zen aspect that you mentioned. There's something magical about the night that really wakes me up, which is probably why...
  35. Re: To use a UV-Haze Filter or not use a UV-Haze Filter, that is the question...

    Does anyone know if those B+W UV/Haze Nano filters will cause lens flares if I'm out doing night photography?

    I'm still not sure whether I should get these B+W UV/Haze filters for protecting my...

  38. Re: Do you have any tips/techniques for Night Photography?

    This is all terrific advice! Thank you much for writing this up. I really appreciate it.

  39. Do you have any tips/techniques for Night Photography?

    I'm going to attempt to do a little night photography with my Linhof Technikardan 45 later this week, shooting with Kodak Ektar 100 and Fuji Velvia 100/50

    I know about exposure and reciprocity...
  40. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Agreed.

    It seems like Gursky is willing to try new things, however conservative he may be. He's not as inventive as other artists and photographers; he admitted in an early interview that he was...
