The Death Valley sunset bloom stands out for me.


Hi Rajan, thanks for checking it out. Phil Hawkins pointed out some oversaturation so I went back to the files in LR and made sure saturation was set to zero, and in some cases lowered contrast and brightness, and posted the revised set in a comment (FM will no longer let me edit the original post). The remaining colors are consistent with the bold look of Velvia film. I'd value your feedback if look at that second set, thanks!

Ross,

My preference is for the original. There is 'good' saturation and then there is molesting the saturation slider. Your image fell to the former lot. I had already assumed it to be the form of film that rendered colours boldly.

These are some breathtaking captures. Congratulations. I love how you deployed Velvia 50 in blue hour and golden hours shots, excellent execution.

Fantastic Ross. I bet you got plenty of wow's back then, when sharing prints was the only way to share photos!


@dakel Great comment, thank you! I still do love to show prints more than any other medium. Holding in your hand a gorgeous textured fine art matte paper from a 400-year old paper mill in France adds something special to me 😍

@mellice thank you for that positive feedback!
Looks like you are in Snohomish? I used to live in Lake Stevens.

Absolutely beautiful!

Boy do I miss shooting 4x5. Nothing like seeing those large Provia, Velvia and Velvia 100F transparencies on the light table. Plus the process of making a photograph was soothing. Every once in a while I go on Ebay and look at prices of lenses. I wish Quickloads still existed...

Hey y’all,

One of the gear forum threads has me going back through drum scans of my film era photography and has stirred up amazing memories and those delicious bittersweet feelings of nostalgia. I love the productivity and immediate feedback of digital, but at the same time I realize there was some magic for me shooting Fuji Velvia on 4x5 sheet film - not just the end result, but the entire process. So now I feel compelled to share some of those film shots, and hope you will enjoy these scenes. The film era will always hold a special place

These images show the great efforts you made to capture the visual impact of these gorgeous areas.

Several are spectacular! My favorites are the Death Valley Superbloom, the lava field, the foggy forest and the cascading creek.

Thank youI That might be my favorite also, there’s just something about the color, and I love aspen trunks.

Hey Ken, fellow large format shooter in the past! I want to get some of my 4x5 transparencies out and spread them on the big light table and relive that glory. It was therapeutic making the compositions, and good therapy again when viewing on a lightbox.

Man I am with you on wishing Quickloads were still around. I too have looked at used 4x5 cameras now & then, but without the ease of Quickloads I just don’t want to do it. Do you have a favorite camera when you have looked on eBay? I used several different wood and metal models over the years, but my favorite was the rugged and simple Toyo 45AX.
