SURPRISE FROM THE PAST

So as most of you know I shoot medium format when I’m not shooting with my Nikon D4, and have mainly shot with a Mamiya RZ67 Pro IID. When I first got the camera, I would take it along on my travels. Recently while doing some spring cleaning I came across some old exposed 6×7 film shot back in 2013. What I found on these rolls were just amazing.

Here are a few of those captures.

MAYLIN – LIGHTING BREAKDOWN

I’ve received a few DM’s and messages about the photo I recently posted of Maylin, asking about me about my lighting settings and setup.

So here is its.

I used the window light as my main light – we shot around 10AM and the light that was coming through the window was strong but defused due to being a cloudy day. Room being a light colour helped a bit by bouncing the light back on the subject.

I used the Elinchrom ELB 400 head with Rotalux 100cm square softbox (internal defuser only) as my fill, it was placed at a 45 degree angle from the subject. The head was placed on the B channel and was set at a low power, not to overpower the ambient light from the window or the lamp.

The shot was taken with a 35mm lens with the camera set to ISO 160, it was then manually set to f3.5 aperture and 1/125 shutter speed. By placing the lens close to the lamp and making use of the depth of field at f3.5 the foreground lamp melted away leaving the out of focus bright orange affect you see in the image this was caused by fthe tungsten bulb in the lamp.

So there it is. See diagram below.
