Since I already have the scanner warmed up, here are some more early shots with the Pentax 645, some okay, some not-so-okay. Laughing

I could go look up the settings, but I'm lazy today. Shocked Cropped quite a few to get extraneous elements out of the scene.

I guess they might be better as a larger size image post, but I'm just speeding them through the scanner at 600dpi.

These are all Velvia transparencies. The transparencies look a lot better than what you see here.

All three are great shots, but that #2, the color and clarity is fantastic!
The backlit lighting on the blades of the broad leaves with the shadows
really adds to this as well. Great lighting!

Good ol' Velvia 50, which is STILL one of the outstanding films of the century.

It was you to see the subject and to frame the picture, that is what counts!

Thank you. That was also one of my earliest shots, and was with the Pentax 45/2.8 lens. The last image was also with the 45.

I guess they always do, there is a kinda magic in watching them on the light table. Projected on the wall is a another story.Wink

I do have a medium format projector, and you are right...on the wall the transparencies are truly nice.

On the light box, the colors really come forth. I will probably project them on a wall today sometime. Cool
