Nature In Monochrome375What is Nature in Monochrome about ? Quite simply it's about showing that nature can be photographed in Monochrome (Black and White) and be interesting and creative and fun.  This is a virtual photographic exhibition open for all Monochrome photographers who photograph nature.  The event is hosted by +Richard Pennells  Lets see your creative side :-) _*Here are rules of entry*_ (do read this before entering your photo)  You can submit *1* photograph of nature in black and white  It can be toned but no selective colour  The photograph must be your own photograph not a reshare of another person's photograph Any photograph I feel doesn't fit in with the guidelines will be removed from the gallery (there's more scroll down) Use your imagination and be creative. (whenever you can) Try and make your photograph unique Your nature photographs must not contain any people but animals, wildlife insects etc are okay.  Remember the emphasis is on nature, so your photograph reflect this in content. Buildings and Man-made structures or machinery should not feature heavily in your photographs as the focus should be more on the nature Think of the quality of the photograph you submit, choose wisely because this is your way of showcasing your photography.   _Optional requirements_   I encourage you write a description of your photograph in the comments and the reasons why you chose this particular subject, what interested you about it ?.  Naming the photograph could also be useful in engaging your viewers.  Also the other photographers I am sure would appreciate your words of encouragement and showing an interest so do browse the photographs submitted :-) and comment on their works By commenting on the photographers works you will motivate them.  Many of them put in a load of effort  Oh and try and submit what you think is your best work as you have a single entry The end time of the event is 23.00 hours on the calendar day I have entered, so  your entries must be submitted before then. Thanks :-)Nature In Monochrome2012-12-01 00:00:0093

Gorka Ortiz62,863I'd like to invite you all to this brand new Photography Contest. The rules are simple, you are kindly suggested to upload up to 3 pictures of your own. The pictures must show yourself in a reflection. No matter whether your reflection is shown through a mirror, a window, some water on the road or any surface that can reflect yourself. There is no need to be recognized in your picture, you can reflect any part of your body. Try to find funny surfaces or elements where you can be reflected and just have fun taking part! ;-) Who will be the winners? Ok, trying to be fair no matter how many followers, plusses or shares you have and also taking into account your kind suggestions,  I have decided to invite 2 or 3 photographers from my circles who I think they produce quality pictures to help me judge the best works. The contest will end the 4th of November this year 2012. I will create a circle of winners with the 10 best photographers in this contest and I will share it in my stream. (Sorry, I know is not much but is better than nothing I guess and there's nothing else I can offer! ;-)  ). Of course I am opened to any suggestion from you all to make the contest as fair as possible. ;-) Finally, the most important thing... have fun and enjoy taking your pictures and sharing them with us! ;-) Cheers!Photography Contest - My Reflection - By Gorka Ortiz.2012-10-04 19:00:00133  
Steve Johnson33,942... At least for this event. The idea here is a simple one; Rules serve a useful purpose but they should be questioned, broken and ignored on occasion. Post photographs that break at least one photography rule (maximum of 3 photograhs) and note which rule they break in the comments.  Here are some example rules that can be laid waste to: Composition The horizon a third from top or bottom Left/right mirror symmetry is to be avoided The odd number rule Rule of thirds Technical Use of on camera or undiffused flash Wideangle for portraits (fortunately this one is becoming a thing of the past) Editing Oversharpening Over-saturating (Just about over-anything really).  Other Shooting down at kids, pets or flowers. These are just a few examples off the top of my head -there are many, many more. If you can think of others please add them in the comments. One useful rule: This is all for fun so don't over think it :)Rules are for Fools2012-09-24 07:00:0034

ShroomshotSaturday672Enjoy the all of the photos of all the people in this circle full of photographers who have shared their awesome shroomshots with #shroomshotsaturday.  If you have shared in the last month and have not been included in this circle, please let one of our curators, +Patti Colston  +Michael Albrecht +Anders Stedtlund or +Sabeena LoBello  know and we will be sure to include you in the next shared circle.Want to be included in the next circle?  Simply share your  fungi photos with us, tag +ShroomshotSaturday  #shroomshotsaturday  and all of the above curatorsWe LOVE shroomshots, but due to the increasing popularity of this theme, please only 1 photo per week.  It is becoming difficult to acknowledge and reshare all of the fabulous submissions that pour in all week long and this way,  during the seasons where shrooms are scarce, you will still have some to share :)Thank you for understanding and happy Shroomshooting :)2013-11-10 21:59:1625713512

Rusty Ferguson5,790The Rusty Ball of Photographers Edition #2If  you were notified then you are included in this shared circle.In this circle, you will find some very good photographers and some amateurs too. Please support these photographers by sharing this circle.If you are a included in this circle, please reshare publically. It will help your work to be found by others if everyone or even many will do that.If you are not a photographer, please share to increase the chance that you will be included in another circle.I attempt to visit the profile of each person in this circle to confirm they are in fact sharing photos on G+.  There are a few people in here to help with the distribution of the circle, some special friends that work with me on G+.Do you want to be in my balls? LOL Okay my circles. I just couldn’t resist. I do things a little different. I’m not trying to have the biggest circle share on G+ if I do, that’s great but it is not my goal.I add people to engagement circles based on pluses, comments and reshares.  I also consider profile completion. If you do all four, then you’ll likely be shared four times a week on most weeks. However, I take a random sample of post so people can’t just engage once and hope to be included later. If you both comment and reshare and plus, then you get included in all three circles. If you’re profile is completed and you do one or more of the above, you’ll also be included in the circle that only folks with completely profiles get into.I know its not as simple as some make it but then that’s my style. I love comments and love to get to know you so hope you’ll comment when you have something to say about what I post. I can’t get to know you from a plus. I have also started a community for sharing your own photos. Joining it will also increase your chance of being included as I count that as engagement.

Back on January 31, I shot some Ilford Pan F with my Mamiya 645 and a 45 mm lens at Valley Forge National Park. I also shot some digital that day, which was posted elsewhere on Google+.

 I finally got around to having Ilford process the film and I downloaded their high resolution scans. At first glance I was not real happy with the scans' tonality, so this evening I cranked up my Epson Perfection V500 and re-scanned some of the images using Vuescan software. This was an educational experience.

In short, Ilford's scans are dramatically sharper than the Epson scans, and it was not too difficult to handle the tonality issues in Photoshop.

The Epson scan (3200 dpi) was roughly the same resolution as Epson's. It may be that a different film carrier might have made a difference by holding the film flatter and/or at a different height. Your mileage may vary.

Image 1: Ilford's scan, full frame. I made some exposure adjustments using the Topaz Adjust filter.

Image 2: The same Ilford scan, but cropped dramatically. In addition to adjusting the exposure, I used the Topaz Detail filter to bring out more texture in the masonry.

Image 3: Epson scan, cropped dramatically. I used the same two Topaz filters. Using Vuescan, I did a 4X multi-scan, which is the same thing I do with my Nikon 35mm scanner. On the Nikon, this does not materially affect sharpness, and it helps retain detail in contrasty lighting circumstances like this one. I was really surprised that this image came out so soft that I was afraid the Epson was not able to properly register all four scans. 

Image 4: Epson scan, cropped dramatically, same filters as above. So, being worried about the 4X scan, I did it again with a single scan. A bit better, but still nowhere close to the Epson. ___

The Perkiomen Creek is about a third of a mile down the path, which was cut in when they installed our development's sewers. People go back there all the time to fish, drink beer, or just get away from it all. Before Montgomery County (PA) put up the gate and it was overgrown, people would drive their cars in, get stuck, and have to be towed out.

Lately I had the occasion to compare a photograph scanned with three different scanners. 

I had some HP5+ film developed by Ilford at their lab in California.They supplied their highest resolution scan, which is 4492 x 6774 for full frame 35 mm film. They use Dropbox to supply these in jpeg format, so it is not necessary to wait for a CD to come through the mail. You can order these on a thumb drive, too.

I also scanned the same negative twice, once with my Nikon Super Coolscan 4000ED using the SA-21 film holder (up to six frames at a time), and once with my Epson V500 flatbed scanner using Epson's standard film holder (up to 2 strips of 6 frames at a time). For these, I used Vuescan software to create both jpegs and RAW files.

Lately I had the occasion to compare a photograph scanned with three different scanners. 

I had some HP5+ film developed by Ilford at their lab in California.They supplied their highest resolution scan, which is 4492 x 6774 for full frame 35 mm film. They use Dropbox to supply these in jpeg format, so it is not necessary to wait for a CD to come through the mail. You can order these on a thumb drive, too.

I also scanned the same negative twice, once with my Nikon Super Coolscan 4000ED using the SA-21 film holder (up to six frames at a time), and once with my Epson V500 flatbed scanner using Epson's standard film holder (up to 2 strips of 6 frames at a time). For these, I used Vuescan software to create both jpegs and RAW files.

The particular image involved was shot on a cold, overcast day, which is pretty much all we've had around here since Christmas. The Ilford scans were really sharp, corner to corner, but they were also very dark. They looked about two stops underexposed, and there was no contrast worth talking about. I had to do a lot of work in Photoshop to get a decent image, and even then I was not really happy. 

As it happens, this was the first roll I shot with my Nikon FM2 after getting it back from the shop, so I was not entirely certain the shutter speeds were what they were supposed to be. I was using the Nikon's internal meter and an app on my phone to set the exposure, and they were giving me pretty different answers. My usual authoritative tie-breaker, my Luna Pro, had dead batteries and so was unavailable. So, there were a lot of potentially negative factors that could have been involved. Maybe they really were badly underexposed?

So I looked at the negatives on my light table. By eye, the exposures looked fine. They seemed to pop better than the onscreen images. So I turned on the Nikon, cranked up Vuescan, and scanned the first strip of six images. After looking at those onscreen, I scanned the rest of the roll. Then, because my Epson V500 was sitting at my left elbow, I scanned the entire roll with it, too.

The Results:

Sharpness: #1 Ilford, #2 Nikon, #3 Epson

Ilford's scans were the sharpest, corner to corner. Generally speaking, even if you are looking at the grain pattern (if the grain is not sharp, the scan is not sharp enough), it is really hard to see the difference between the Ilford scan and the Nikon -- until you get out into the edges. Ilford's scans show essentially no falloff in sharpness. Nikon's scans often lose it for the last 5-10% (1-3 mm) on either side. Perhaps something in my scanner is not perfectly aligned on that axis, but I believe this to be more of a film-flatness issue. This is a real problem when I am scanning 40+ year old, poorly stored film with a lot of curl. I often have to resort to Nikon's FH-3 film holder, which can be time consuming because it limits me to one frame at a time. The Nikon hardly ever has a problem with newly processed modern films. Epson, on the other hand, is far worse because their cheap plastic film holders are really big time Crapola! and cannot hold anything flat if it is not inclined to be so. There are aftermarket film holders that I am told improve this situation greatly.

Tonal Range: #1 Nikon, #2 Ilford, #3 Epson

I have no idea what software Ilford uses to scan film. What I do know is that I routinely get better looking scans with my Nikon than Ilford can provide. I was really surprised by how much difference there was even from the jPegs. All of a sudden there was shadow detail and bright skies were not blown out. If I processed from the Raw files, even more was possible. The Epson files were passable, in that they were more appropriately exposed than Ilford's, but the Epson files looked comparatively muddy (probably because they were not as sharp) and required more work in post.

Summary

For the time being, I will continue to have Ilford process my  new work and make their hi-resolution scans. This is as much a function of my having a non-photographic full-time job as anything else. For now, anything that saves me time is usually worth funding. 

If I want to display or print something, I will probably re-scan it with my Nikon. 

When I bought my Epson, I thought it was the bees knees. And, for what it is, it does work well. However...

My original intent was to scan old family pictures to post on my family's genealogy website. And then someone noticed some pictures that lead to a gallery exhibition and suddenly I was shooting again and making big prints and the Epson was no longer good enough. You really do need a superior scan to make a gallery-quality print. If the image is going to be displayed only 3-5 inches on a side, the difference between 150 dpi and 4,000 dpi is irrelevant and bit depth becomes far less important. If it is a 20" print, all of that matters a lot.

So, here is my current workflow:

For newly shot film, Ilford does the processing and sends me their high resolution scans via Dropbox. Anything that I really like, I rescan in RAW with my Nikon using Vuescan. I do all my post processing in Photoshop with a variety of Topaz filters. 

For old stuff where the original negative still exists and is in reasonable condition, I scan that rather than an old print. If it is 35 mm, that happens on the Nikon. If it is any other format, or if all I have is a print, it happens on the Epson with Vuescan. I do not have or shoot enough larger format film to justify a professional quality tool. I do have my eye on getting the higher-end Epson that can do 4x5 without having to stitch together multiple scans. 

The attached photo was scanned by the Nikon. It is a Schuylkill Canal lock and lockmaster house, adjacent to the Schuylkill River, in Mont Clare, PA. I used Topaz's Adjust and Clarity filters to bring out more detail in the ice. 

As usual, your mileage may vary.___

There is a lot of chatter around this group about using long expired film or getting usable images from film shot years ago found in used cameras picked up at flea markets and such. A few weeks ago I was digging around in my basement, and I found a roll of 35mm color film that had apparently been shot and never processed. The basement is dry, and the temperature never strays from 70 degrees F more than 2-3 degrees one way or the other. Not ideal storage conditions, but it is not like it was buried under the barn floor.

This picture of my wife and daughter is the best image on the roll. Most of them are discolored to the point where I would not be able to identify the people or the place had I not been there. My daughter appears to be about four years old, so my guess is this was shot in the summer of 1994, give or take a year.

The film has not come back from the lab yet, and I did not write it down before I sent it out, but this was probably 100 ISO Kodacolor Gold.___

It was a cold, dreary day. I do not normally go out n this weather, but I had just gotten my Leica M4 back and I really wanted to try it out.

Valley Forge National Park, very close to the Washington Memorial Chapel.

This was shot with my Mamiya 645, 45mm, Kodak Ektar. I did the same shot with my Nikon S9500, and this is starkly better when I look at it in high magnification on the screen or print.

This evening I got a call telling me that my three photographs of Alex Haley, Julian Bond, and Dick Gregory will be included in the upcoming exhibit, "Our Greatness, Our Struggle," at Indigo Bleu Design & Culture Center in Philadelphia. There will be a reception on February 22. More information later.

My copy arrived today. Henri Cartier-Bresson's "The Decisive Moment" was published in 1952 and never went to a second printing. I have been looking for a copy that I could afford for decades. This is probably the best I can do.

This, too, was shot from the same spot. This is as telephoto as the Nikon S9500 can do. This is uncropped, with the exception of taking a bit off the top and bottom to achieve 2x3 aspect ratio.

This was shot from the same spot as the previous image in this album. The lens on this Nikon S9500 goes from very wide to very telephoto. It is very difficult to hold it steady at the extreme telephoto end without being able to lean it against your forehead as if it had a viewfinder.

I have been to Valley Forge twice this month to shoot film. While there, I shot some digital images just so I would have something to show right away.

I was digging through old stuff to find pictures of snow to send to my daughter, who has been sending me pictures of herself and her friends on the beach in Costa Rica. She is there for the Peace Corps, and where she is stationed is not a resort by any means, but the beach is only an hour or so bus ride away.

Anyway, I shot this in December 1976. I know that, because the first picture on that roll is the first picture I ever took of Susan, whom I married in 1979.

This was shot with a 24mm lens on a Canon FTb, angled down somewhat to get the horizon up near the top of the frame. There was considerable distortion; the telephone pole in the upper right was canted over about 40 degrees to the right. Using Photoshop as a digital tilt/swing, I corrected the perspective. And now you know how a rectangular image became a square.

It seemed like a good day to post a frozen landscape. This is the Tulpehocken Creek, taken from the Blue Marsh Bridge. All of this has been under 40-50 feet of water since 1977 in Blue Marsh Lake.

Canon FTb, 24mm, Tri-X, HC-110

This image of Dick Gregory is the third photograph I am submitting to the upcoming "Our Greatness, Our Struggle" group exhibit, which will be shown at the Indigo Bleu Design & Culture Center at 3911 Lancaster Avenue, Philadelphia, PA, beginning February 22, 2015. 

Originally famous as a stand-up comedian, by 1971 when I shot this, Gregory had moved on to speaking far more seriously about race and politics in general. This was at a reception following his speaking at Allegheny College.

This is the second image I will be submitting to the "Black Struggle" show. I took this picture of Julian Bond sitting, having a smoke with some students after speaking at Allegheny College, Meadville, PA, in 1970. I expect he quit smoking long ago.

Cable TV had recently come to Meadville, and one of the students did a half hour weekly show on what was happening at the college. He used a lot of my photographs (not this one) that I shot on Panatomic X, specially processed as positive transparencies. That was actually less hassle than making prints and setting up a special camera to show them. The microphone on the end of a tripod leg was his.

The other day I received an invitation to submit artwork for a Philadelphia exhibition celebrating the Black Struggle. Being an old white guy I do not really have much that is appropriate, but I do have a few things. This picture is Alex Haley, who wrote "The Autobiography of Malcolm X." I shot this in 1970 when he was touring college campuses giving a lecture that turned into "Roots," which eventually made him famous when it was turned into a hugely successful 1977 miniseries and book.

Pentax Spotmatic, 50mm f/1.4, Tri-X, HC-110. This is a new scan done on my Nikon Super Coolscan 4000ED, and is dramatically sharper than my original scan done on my Epson V500. Post processing was done in Photoshop using the Topaz BW Effects filter.
