Photoshoot With Cari On The Farm Using New Phase One 75-150 Leaf Shutter

webCF003770

I recently ventured into West Virginia to do a personal (fun) shoot on a horse farm. Just an opportunity to mess around for a couple of hours on a beautiful day. Most of the shots were done with one or two lights, combined with ambient light. You can really see the dynamic range of the Phase One camera in the sky, and that new 75-150 leaf shutter I’ve been using is SHARP.

My lovely DC / Maryland / Virginia-based model was Cari Funkhouser: https://www.facebook.com/cari.funkhouser?fref=ts

Love the natural depth in this. The beauty of medium format and long focal length. click to see larger

  1. Great shots, Doug. Love the images of her in the red shirt!

    I had the opportunity to shoot with a Phase One for a client last week, and the dynamic range is incredible. I can see wanting to use that camera for all of my shoots.

  2. Hi,i was wondering how you took the 1st shot.did you under expose the sky then brought it back to post processing? How about metering settings?spot or evaluative?thank you!

    1. didnt underexpose the sky. just used powerful light to bring down the ambient. Shot didnt require much in post production to give this dramatic effect. metering? ha! I used my brain. Years of knowing my gear and how it performs in different lighting environments. I can usually guess what my exposure should be

  3. Douglas,
    what do you mean “just used powerful light to bring down the ambient.” ? Can you explain in detail. Trying to understand…. Thanks.

    Also, I’m a retired High School teacher that is now running a photography business fulltime (been doing it for about 15 years part time). Just got a Phase one back older model P+ series. What would you recommend for me to learn the ins and outs of the Phase one system? Any advice would help.

    1. When you use a powerful strobe like a 1k, you have to close down your aperture or your subject will be too bright, right? So when you close down, your subject will hopefully reach proper exposure but as you do that, everything not hit by the strobe (the ambient) will also get darker. That’s why a lot of my shots have moody backgrounds
