It's not my best, but it's certainly my favorite this week.



NEX 5N + Contax G 45 @ f/2 or 2.8

I very much like finding webs. They are fun to shoot. I'd have preferred to get the spider while it's legs were a bit more spread out but it was windy and I didn't have the patience for it. Luckily, the light was just perfect on the background. I need to downsize it and sharpen it. I think it'd make the web come out more.

edit:
What a difference sharpening and curves make!

I like the crop better but the bokeh has become slightly more distracting although I think it might add here not take away.

Very nice stuff in here, as always Makten brings some perfection to it all. Nothing left to its own devices.

I haven't produced anything astounding this past week, but I like this


Nikon D700
Zeiss distagon 2.8/21 ZF
1SO 800
1/750
F2.8
M-mode


I've been trying out the lens which is pretty new to me and I'm excited to put it to use as a street-lens as it is mostly used for sceneries otherwise (although granted, not exclusively). I haven't got there, but I'm patient.

This is a place in Stockholm I frequent often for photography (really the only place in Stockholm that is truly 'street'). It is not a 'candid' photo of the man selling lottery tickets per se, but a photo of him and the city.

Wow! Some really great captures here.

Here is one taken last week on a cruise in the Caribbean just south of Cuba. Taken with the 5D Mk2 and CYZ 80-200 f/4. Most likely at f/11 or f/16, ISO 200 and 1/2000 with minimal processing in LR4. I love sunsets - as there are no two alike. Out of 52 shots this is (I think) my favorite from that evening - as I like the way it captured the light beams radiating from around the sun.

This is very cool thread!
I finally got a chance to get out in some decent light here in Seattle and return to my alma mater at the University of Washington where the cherry trees are in full bloom in the liberal arts quadrangle. I went at mid-day which is always challenging for me to concentrate on finding decent shots with the large crowds of people there soaking up the sights and the sun. I decided to include some of the classical architecture in addition the typical views of the trees. I chose the monochrome treatment to put emphasis on the contrast in forms.
Taken hand-held with the Rokinon 14/2.8 on the Canon 5D2.

Thanks for looking/commenting,
JayT

Camera: Mamiya 7
Lens: 80mm f/4
Capture medium: Fuji Pro 160S

When I lived in a more cohesive city (NYC), there were streets full of image opportunities. In CA, we tend to drive almost everywhere, so to get the priceless moments you get in a city, you have to find the places where people cluster. For that, there's the beach. This kid thought he could outsmart the waves. Around sunset people tend to leave the beach, so I was fortunate I could just capture his movement, the context of the beach, and the color/light of dusk at the same time.

Good thread idea. Here's my contribution. I shot it this week (on Thursday) in Aarhus in Denmark at the opening of a cultural center (Godsbanan). It's from the rehearsal for the modern dance performance "Grums" by the LuLu Art Group which was shown at the opening on Friday. My significant other was the choreographer of the piece so I got to see the rehearsal.

From a photography point of view it was a challenge. Photographing dance is difficult as you don't really have any time to make complex compositions as the scene changes rapidly and when the performance is on
...Show more

I like it. I'd say the most difficult thing about shooting dance is finding one fraction of a second in a performance that conveys both the overall beauty of the dance and gives you a sense of drama. A fraction of a second too early or too late, and it's all flailing limbs and awkward transitional positions. But this was certainly the right moment to release the shutter. And the dress does help. I like the duo-tone as well and the choice of color, but it's such a good shot you could easily change the mood with just a different color choice.

That's fantastic. Great presence. I feel like I could step right into it.

Thanks for all the kind comments! This weeks shot is actually a couple of months old, but I haven't processed it until now.

I'm often out riding my bicycle in the suburbs of Stockholm, and that's one of the reasons I've ditched the D700. I need a small enough camera for my daily 20-40 km rides and the NEX gives me that. But I've also got the excellent medium format Voigtländer Bessa III 667, which even if it's a tad too large, can be brough anywhere with not much effort.

Anyhow, one day I ended up in a dark forrest where the ground was covered with solid ice and it was more difficult to walk than ride the bike (with metal knobbed winter/snow tyres on). I found a small swamp with all these nice patterns in the ice and I decided to give it a try.


5551 by Martin Hertsius, on Flickr


I underexposed one stop just to be able to stop down to f/8 and handhold the camera at 1/60 second. The shutter button on the Bessa is awful and you don't know when it's gonna click, because there is no mechanical resistance before the electronic shutter trips. So I was pretty lucky that the image came out perfectly sharp, considering that my stance was very unstable.
The film was Kodak Tmax 400 which fortunately is very tolerant to underexposure at normal development, and the latitude was good enough for a nice and crisp result. The negative was scanned (as a positive) with Epson V700 and I only used the blue channel when processing in Photoshop.

Thanks for looking.

I usually am not a fan of abstract nature but that one works Makten.

gurtch - how about some commentary? There's always flickr (or some of the image threads here) for impersonal contributions.

Martin, really schysst image, ice is almost metallic looking. I do really like your abstract shots as I fail to find these motifs myself (so you better let me come along some day :-). In this particular case with a swamp and all, I cant help wanting to know what colors where there.

Great stuff, Martin. I am normally a Tri-X fan, but your work has me thinking that I ought to give T-MAX a shot...
