Hi Ernest you inspired me to take this low tide triptych 

Kodak Ektar 100

 

Awesome contrast of texture and the nuance of color put us on notice that even the commonplace has a sense of mystery.

Cheers, Rog

Waiting for more.

thanks, here's another attempt but the sky washed out    Agfa APX 400

Frankly, your minimalist aesthetic creates a sense of mystery; what's beyond the wall? The antenna towers. What's on this side of wall? The solitary tree. Surveillance. Paranoia. What's the audio track on this? Heavy equipment, earth movers? I know, the circus gets a little crazy, but without a little crazy, what's the point?

I can only envisage a constant high pitched tinnitus like electrical hum, pretty grim eh :)

The Ferrari cars at that exhibition where definitely not for sale. As much as I like the style of these cars, I couldn't afford one than as I can't afford one now. My private goal remains to buy a Porsche, though 😎 

perfect goal!!!😉

One of my new interests is "commercial voyeurism."  This is a dry run with Ektar.  There is tons of detail and you can see some of the people very clearly in the offices and what they are doing.  The Ektar was just too slow, though, and many of the people were removed due to the motion.  Despite the long exposure (2 minutes +) it was surprising to see so many people in good sharpness at their desks.  Slaves they are!!!  I am thinking that I should aim for the early onset of the sunset when there is still a bit more outside light and slide film with good reciprocity failure tolerance, like Provia 100F, so that I can expose for the highlights and get a much faster exposure.

More to come... :)

Financial District, NYC

Ektar 6x17

180mm Schneider APO Symmar

Technorama 617siii

I would expose at 1/15 f/2 for extar.   The offices would come in perfect exposure and the outside would come dark, close to if not back, creating a lattice effect overlaid on the office. Try one like that, I think you would like the result.

 Thanks for the tip, Steve.  My lens only opens up to f5.6.  And in any event even that would be too open as I would get soft edges.  I really need to stop down to at least f16 to get good sharpness from edge to edge.  I think the use of the Provia would, with its compressed latitude, darken the shadows almost completely while allowing for a bit more shutter speed.  I will keep trying...

I know the 400 iso speeds in my head and adjust from there .... indoors bright light is generally 1/60 f/2 so going to 100 ISO with f/16 for sharpness is just a matter of math ... you will obviously still need a tripod and to be concerned about reciprocity ... in the end the point is that what's interesting is what's in the building not the architecture so expose for what's inside ..... BTW I read that Kodak begins beta testing 120 Ektachrome in July, perhaps by year end??????????????  :-)!!!!!!

I think you have a marketing opportunity, Klaus: black T-shirt with yellow letters--FILM IS OUR CANVAS!

Thank you Rog; if I hit it lucky, remind me of transferring the cash-back. And a free T-shirt !  Yellow on black seems the only possible combination --it sprang to my imagination immediately. Why is that? 

Was offline a couple of days due to a seminar I had to attend-and  a minor problem some Jaguar-driver had with my car on the autobahn on my way home... So I had to catch up with the thread and just went through the last 10 days --you produced outstanding works again. It´s really amazing. The blue box (es) and the moments hinges  unhinges are just from my favorite color palette..

 Certainly a flair for the cinematic, and I just love what you do with the background.

EeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeUHeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

The tinnitus theme song of the circus in my head. Maybe this is a marketing opportunity if you think about bundling an MP3 with your photographs.  Very artistic.  Come to think about it, Katrien De Blauwer released her Stills book bundled with a soundtrack on vinyl by Danny Clay.  She is a collage artist but the critics call her a photographer without a camera  and compare her minimal style to Antonioni.
