I took the day yesterday to do a personal shoot. We had a beautiful, but hot, day here in the Washington DC area. Some friends came together to help with the shoot. Shooting with a digital medium format, the Phase One IQ160, is pretty awesome. You can see in the image above, the incredible depth and detail of the subject and the clouds behind. The images were sucked in using Capture One software by Phase One and the black and white conversion above, for example, was created using Nik Software (Silver Efex Pro) within Capture One using easy to create custom process recipes.
Honestly, due to the ease of use of the camera system and its incredible quality, this shoot was pretty easy and I am very pleased with the results thus far. Just needed a few willing subjects, some volunteer assistant friends, an old trampoline, a couple of lights, and the IQ160.
