Quick self Intro

Postby bernardlanguillier » Tue 20 Jan 2009 00:18

Dear all,

Very pleased to join you folks on this forum.

My name is Bernard Languillier, I am a Tokyo based part time photographer initially from Belgium. Landscape is my main thing, but being mostly an amateur I basically shoot whatever I feel like shooting when the mood comes.

Some of my work can be seen at:

http://www.light-of-earths.com (for the "official" stuff)
http://www.flickr.com/photos/bernardlanguillier/ (for the more casual stuff)

Panoramic shooting has been a key center of interest and experiement for me for a few years now. I am targetting both very high resolution for large prints, but also various aspect ratios. I work currently with a RRS spherical pano head and do most of my stitching with either PTgui Pro of Autopano pro. The following set contains some of these panoramix images:

I have been shooting various cameras in the past years (including a H1 and Mamiya ZD) but now mostly shoot Nikon with a D3x and D3. I still own an Ebony 45SU 4x5 camera and a few Schneider lenses, but I rarely use them these days because of the price of film and the annoyance of scanning on the Imacon. Still, this is clearly what I find to be the best fun!

Thanks a lot for the kind invitation Stany.

Cheers,
Bernard

Welcome to the forum!

I'm pretty familiar with your ebony/imacon set up, do you think the stitched d3x images give you as good a print? I've got lots of prints at about 1metre on the long dimension from velvia and even when you are a foot away or less you are still picking out more fine detail.

Anyway, sorry for hijacking your thread, I really liked a lot of the snow pictures I saw on flickr recently and wanted to say hello.

Thanks a lot for the kind words.

There is no hijacking, this intro is just an excuse to start discussing. :) I have not been able to print anything from the D3x yet because of a printer issue that will last at least another month. Based on what I see on screen though, my current assessement is that a 3x3 stitch (9 images) from a D3x executed with flawless technique should be clearly better than Imacon scanned Provia 100F.

How about a 2x2 stitch? Hard one, I would probably still give a slight edge to 4x5 in pure detail. The D3x does of course win hands down in DR compared to slide film.

Cheers,
Bernard
