Ian, I really like it!! Does that gentleman's book outline the technique, or does it display his photos?

It displays his (fantastic) photos. The technique is simple - set camera aperture to smallest (16,22), iso to lowest (100,200) and shutter to Bulb then just shoot and don't hold the camera too steady!

Or do what he does and use a plastic lensed Holga and slow b/w film but at a pound a shot it's too expensive to be experimental and you need to shoot quite a bit to get decent ones.

Oh, and shoot based on how things feel rather than how they look. That's tricky but is the best way I can explain it.

Incidentally it also works for Antoine d'Agata of Magnum but he does it in colour generally and as he's blind in one eye and myopic in the other it may be how he sees the world anyway. Who knows?

Ronny, one more picture of those sunny swedish winter days and I'll jump on a ferry!
More seriously, I prefer this shot over the already very good first one.

Back Story to the photo below is this: It comes from a walk through the 5th Arond. in Paris in 2011 at the end of a long day walking about that utterly magical city. Light was rapidly failing and I had long since begun to lose whatever technique I had for capturing pictures of stunning Parisienne's. My wife and I had just turned the corner past this Bistro and my camera was at rest when I saw this gorgeous woman, so I of course sought to take her picture w/o regard to whatever the settings were on it. This is what came up Not at all what Ian has shown, but I still like it.

I'd avoid his second book (Fiction) as it's too loosely structured. His first (End Time City) is out of print unfortunately. Half Life is just superb.

Very cool dog. Nice sot.

I'd like to see how he holds up in the snow though!

I don't know. Higgs is SOOOOO FAST. I suspect he could hop in and out of Jed's mouth b/4 he had a chance to bite down.

You should see him and Rocky play. Higgs darts in and out at Rocky before Rocky know what hit him

The last one is intriguing me, the more I look at it the better I like it. Whats making the OOF points at the bottom, cool effect.

I thought it was a spoon too at first. I like the shot with the 85mm.

Chin - thank you for the guitar shots. Yes, of course, a straight shift - I didn't think about that - that's the basic function. I was thinking stitching multiple shifted shots - saves having a pano head (where there's a foreground element).

I really like the 45PCE . I had thought the 24 PCE would be too wide but Phillippe is really turning me. God help me - I'm going to have to sell everything I can lay my hands on.

These are outstanding Ray! I love the first one and the second one. Very well processed to boot.

I sometimes think about selling my 80-200mm and then I use it. It well good be the sharpest of the MF zooms. It's no wonder that it's listed as a professional lens.

when Leighton's right, he's right.

Scott these are wonderful. Don't know how far away you were - but they are so crisp - especially that last one.

Monty, "Higgs loves the snow" is a really lovely photograph!

Ben, thanks! I also thought the mussel with seaweed looks like a spoon ;-)
The shift-mechanism of the newer PC-lenses works great for quick panos (much better than the old 28PC).
On my D700/D3s I can get a 7200by2800-pixel pano in a few seconds, or a 5700x4200 stitch from vertical shots.

Some time ago there was talk of using the filters built into the 16/3.5 AI and what happens when you accidentally use them.
Here's an example. You can salvage the shot, but it's hard and you never quite get back to the color you wanted.
