This shot was taken during the New Year's Eve in 2005. A friend of mine and I were skiing to a glacier on the western coast of Norway (Folgefonna). We didn't manage to reach the top-most cabin due to very strong wind (close to hurricane force) and low temperature (-15 deg C or thereabout). Luckily, we managed to reach a small cabin, 2 km or so, from the top-most cabin. We stayed at this cabin for one and a half day, waiting for the storm to pass. We were both afraid that the cabin could be blown away. Quite scary, actually. At sunset the second evening (about half past three, local time), the sun showed up for a short time. I jumped out of the sleeping bag, put the skiing booths on, and ran out. I managed to take a few pictures, standing in lee of the cabin. I remember that the shutter speed was low, possibly 1/10 to 1/15 sec. One picture was fine, the others were blurred. A few moments later, the sun was gone, and we were left with darkness and wind. The weather improved during the night, so the following morning we could ski to the top-most cabin.

Superb picture and color in film Helged.

I am curious to know the size of this picture in Mo and in TIFF or RAW-DNG.

How many bits did you use 16 bits or more ? 24 bits ?

When you increase bits you also increase the color palette exactly "color levels"

 

This is fantastic Henri, what a lovely scene.

 

 

And so is this Helge. Great to see you post here.

So Tahlay's got herself a Shen Hao as well as an M6 now, Eoin?  :D

 

The Delta 100 shows a lovely range of tones.

Far too many distractions of late (lots of PC & iMac problems) plus (shock-horror) a new digital toy to play with...  Did manage a brief outing last week with my Hasselblad 500C, 60mm Distagon and a roll of Fomapan 100.  Developed and scanned today, first result below, more to follow...

When you increase bits you also increase the color palette exactly "color levels"

 

 

I don't have the actual scan setup in front of me now, but as I recall I used 16 bit per channel, 4000 dpi resolution, yielding a tiff-file of about 500 Mb. The actual image information is obviously only a tiny bit of what indicated by the file size - but I do like film grain  ;) . And I only scan those captures that I like, so 500 Mb file size doesn't bother me too much... The beauty with such large files are that you can print large, or make crops, with very fine to outstanding results. For my eyes, at least...

 

The wet scanning procedure takes some time, so I only switch to wet scan in the cases when I am not satisfied with scans from Nikon Super CoolScan 9000 ED (due to film flatness problems, or if I want more punch to the colours, for instance). I have never tried drum scans, but the Nikon 9000 and Epson flatbed serve me well.

I balked at the price of mine, but, after shooting, I cannot believe I bought the best lens I have ever owned at such a low price. Magnificent cameras. :)

An analogue memory from the Faroe Islands.

 

This image may need some explanation... For quite some years I brought two Mamiya 7 bodies with me, one loaded with colour film and the other with infrared film. Mounted on a tripod, using the same lens and same lens settings - including sufficiently large dof for both visible and ir-light - two closely matching images are captured. The images are then (manually) stacked in photoshop, easier said than done, this one..., and after some blending and layer adjustments and similar exercises, a quasi-coloured infrared image emerge.

 

The end result vary from the most boring to more interesting. Personally I like this one, taken on one of the rare sunny summer days on the Faroe Islands (apologise for any Faroe readers, but a sunny day is not the rule in the midst of the northern North Atlantic). Personally, I like the mix of the dramatic sky (from the ir-capture), the greenish tint from grass moving in the wind (from the colour capture, obviously) and the characteristic Faroe sea/fjord/mountain landscape.

 

The procedure is interesting in that you hardly know what to end up with. The hit rate obviously increases after repeated error & trial, but it is still hard to know what the computer will bring forward.

 

But fun it is...

 

Mamiya 7 with 43mm. Fuji Provia 100 + Maco IR 820c w B+H 092-filter.

 

(And yes, you can of course follow a similar procedure with digital captures. But my preference is for film.)
