Reignite (Fuji GX617)

    Newer Older

    Currumbin Sunrise, Gold Coast, QLD

    I've been a bit quiet lately on the photo front... That doesn't mean I haven't been trolling around on flickr admiring the new work of other photographers. In this case, Tim Wrate's latest upload grabbed my attention and really got me inspired to post something -- in this case, from the archives.

    The 6x17 medium format world seems to be exploding recently, with a bucket load of interest throughout the interwebs it seems. Certainly is a fantastic format, and considering I'm not sure how much longer I'll have this loaner GX617, it really does make me want to go out and shoot it as much as I can :)

    I'm just happy to have been able to have shot in this infamous format and have some lovely 120 transparencies to show for it.

    Anyway, I know this shot looks really dark....it was pretty dark to begin with unfortunately, so it suffers a bit in the shadow detail. It's begging for a rescan on an Imacon or drum, which might be able to suck some more detail out -- any recommendations? Seems there's nothing here in Brisbane (or when there is, grossly overpriced).

    Shot Details:
    Fuji GX617 w/ 105mm Fujinon Lens
    Singh-Ray 4-stop Reverse GND Filter
    Lee 2-stop Soft GND Filter
    Fuji Velvia 100 film

    Anyway, hope you enjoy :)

    Cheers, Bernie

      Beautiful image Bernie - the thing that astounds me about the velvia slide film is the rendition of colour, and the vibrancy of the colour. Something that is very difficult to get in digital.

      Thanks for the shout out too!!!

      Tremendous photo. Excellent use of the GND filters. And, obviously, insanely awesome colors. Loving that film.
