This photo is from a series from some of my crazy, extreme photo adventures I  had photographing Mountains "Alpinists " and rock climbers. This is Alpes mountain range which is called   "Le Massive du Mont Blanc", Haût Savoir region  In France.  And this place is a White valley ( La Vallee Blanche - Chamonix ) the most beautiful region You must visit. I was very brave enough to carry my Medium format two lenses/ meters/ and a Canon EOS and a 50mm, a lot of films No tripod/ It is crazy when I thi

Bonjour Henri,   I still prefer black and white film (I use almost no colour). The advantages of digital don’t mean much to me. Seeing instant results is not so useful, since what comes out of a camera is always far from a final result, and the final result requires time and thought.   Film also continues to improve. The quality of available film and developers is as good as it has ever been, and it is still as competent as digital sensors of equivalent size.   I also much prefer silver g

On a week-long stay at the Faroe Islands, I took the ferry from Torshavn (the 'capital') to the southernmost island, Suduroy, and looked up potential shooting locations on the island. This image was taken a little before the sun was setting in the ocean, with wind from the west (left). With the uplift of the humid air at the cliffs, fog and clouds drifted over the island. A quite typical situation for the islands; the ocean can be more or less cloud free, but the islands are generally covered in

This is spectacular. The best child portrait that I can remember seeing. I have yet to explore the dark art of printing. Is this entirely a result of the negative, or did some of this magic result from your skill at printing?

Thank you so much for your kind words. Most of the magic was already on the negative, I just tried to emphasise it. 

The negative looks more like this. All I did was (1) print brighter , (2) dodge the black part on the top right, bottom left and middle top and (3) use burning to bring back details on the main character. 

Thanks a lot for your kind words. I really encourage you to give printing a try, it has been and still is eye opening for me.

Kodak Vision3 200T Silbersalz35 - M6J - 5cm Fujinon 1.2

Those movie based emulsions are - for me - the successors of the Kodachrome - especially when developed not in C-41 but in their own chemicals - and I suppose that Silbersalz is doing such (I understand that the colour reproduction suffers with C-41). What is your impression of this film?

M4-P Summaron 35mm f/3.5 LTM Tri-X in Pyrocat

I had to look twice to check if this picture is color or not... It well conveys the mood.

I generally agree with your printing encouragement (will have to go back there myself sometime...) but this unmanipulated picture speaks even more to me.

Still life

IIIa, MS Optical 1.1/50 Sonnetar, TriX 1600

There’s a LTM version of the 50 Sonnetar? 
I owned the M mount version for a while, it has a lovely rendering, but a little fiddly to use. I miss it…

He did make a few. I have had it for three or so years, but have neglected using it. As you say, it is a bit fiddly. On the up-side, it is surprisingly small and light; I would not give up the size and weight for less fiddly manipulation.

Every once-in-a-while, I look up MS Optical on world's largest garage sale. I have not seen a 1.1 Sonnetar in quite a while; but I do see a 1.5 version of Sonnetar frequently, although never in LTM. I think I am going to keep it.

the shot was at 1.1.

Thanks,

 

Wayne

Hello Christoph,

I find this Tungsten film very versatile, very nice latitude and not too grainy in bright daylight. Smooth colors with ECN2 . Next I'll try 50D and 250D , grain should be different.

200T Vision3 (exposed at 100 iso)

 

 

Best, JM.

Very poetic, Wayne ! A nice collage of structures. Rhythm is the word.

Oh,  Mnutzer, you put the Weissenhof-Siedlung on my shortlist... so near and I've never been there.

That Pyrocat developer is really working well for you, Ken. Lovely picture.

Has that house pictured been in a movie about the Kennedys? It looks vaguely familiar.
