Anti-Scheimpflug Contents Page Graphic

Page 3 of every edition of a motorcycle magazine I shot for was a special shot relating to the main feature on the cover and in the middle of the book but a little abstracted.. Essentially it was a -right-hand opener' to catch the eye of those who pick it up off the rack in the newsagents and flick ...

Re: A gully to the Brindabellas

yes it's the GD3WH, a lot less compact than your lefoto (and the arca Swiss cube, which I'd have loved! Thanks for the helpful advice, John. Much appreciated. But just to clarify, I have the Leofoto G2, which is quite small. Also incredibly good. But the camera I am waiting on has a round rail so I...

A Couple Of Model Shots

It was back in about 1987. The architect client had insisted that I take out extra Insurance cover for them to bring this detailed model of the proposed development of a project known as 400 George Street to the studio. It was, in fact, a project that started at number 400 George Street and in fact ...

Re: A gully to the Brindabellas

Wow John, I hope you had parking up top close to your vantage point. It looks quite a climb. Either that or that, like Leni Riefenstahl, you had a troupe of Nubian porters to shoulder that hefty Horseman L and its ancillary paraphernalia. Having made the effort to get there it presents a view full o...

Re: Ferns after Fire

Ha, ha, ha! It just goes to show with these forum posts, Maris: you have to read to the end. I saw this pic and immediately that of the visual dialogue — or was it a debate — between Harry Callahan and his tutor Ansel Adams. Lo and behold, you make mention of the great Harry and make. my day. Thanks...

Re: Plan View Of Landscaped Courtyard

Fast forward to after the Berlin wall came down and another trip to Germany I found that she was inundated with work for the rebuilding of many places in and around Berlin. Fabulous yarn Mick, I have an ex-pat Pommy mate living in Berlin for years (former assistant to Bailey donkey's years ago and ...

Re: Plan View Of Landscaped Courtyard

Well spotted Maris, It was a totally unintentional inversion, I assure you. Also laterally reversed. It was so long ago and memory failed me. And bloody E-6 emulsion side is not all that matte. Corrected now. The vent stack from the underground car park was the primary give away when I delved into i...

Re: Nothofagus and Richea

I go along with your summation there Mark. I'm keenly following the line of reasoning because I'm about to start shooting colour neg myself for the first time to compare with XP 2. I feel more secure trusting a dip and dunk at a commercial lab given that I have to function by remote control.

Re: Plan View Of Landscaped Courtyard

Thanks Mark, The viewpoint was requested and the 35mm lens was the only one available that could achieve it. Keeping in mind that a plan view is business as usual for designers and architects. It is shot with the 6x12 back to isolate the relevant content. Viewing the full 4x5 screen meant that the l...

Re: An Unusual Window

Thanks Maris,

We're all engaged in finding the cosmos in the chaos but the task is made all the easier when architects and designers leave a trail of crumbs to follow.
