Lupins in Collinsvale, not far from Hobart, Tasmania. Lupins can be found wild in many parts of Tasmania. I spotted these one evening in mid-summer 2011-2012 on my way to Hobart.

    Really beautiful image.. Im a fellow medium format guru and just love seeing others producing nice images. Have a great xmas.!

  • Welcome Joshua. It is indeed good to have another medium format enthusiast on the site, especially one who captures images on transparency.

    This particular roll of Reala was probably the first roll of 120 neg I’ve used for over a year, like you, transparency, and Velvia in particular, is by far my favourite, also, but I needed some neg for my daughter’s school formal photos and this was the first frame of the roll…as I was driving into Hobart I spotted these lupins and, well, you have to grab your shots when you find them, right?

    As an RB67 user, you may like to check out the work of another member Jason Asher from Queensland in Australia. Jason was mainly a digital imaging photographer until recently (although he has made some wonderful 35 millimetre images on Velvia 50). However he acquired a Mamiya RB67 kit of his own earlier this year, and since making 6×7 Velvia captures has not looked back and is loving it too. Your esteemed host of the Medium and Large Format Film group Michelle Walsh is another owner and regular user of a spectacular red RB67 almost as gorgeous as her and regularly loads some transparency into it. One day I’ll get myself a 6×7 no doubt, but I have a major Rollei obsession happening so between those, a C220 TLR and the Hasselblad it’s 6×6 all the way for me for now.

    Thanks for the very kind comment; it’s an unexpected but welcome little Christmas present! Hope you have a memorable one yourself and that 2012 is filled with film. I’ve added you to my watchlist.
    Regards,

    I love the colours in this one Brett, and the magic softness of your DoF – perfect camera choice. Takes me back to a trip to Prince Edward Island in Canada a few years back – lupins don’t like the subtropics!

  • Hi Michelle,
    sorry about the late reply, somehow I missed it but thanks heaps mate. It’s not bad for neg is it? Can only wonder how it would have looked on Velvia…
    Cheers,

    Great colours Brett. Do you develop and scan and use a lab?

  • Thanks Matthew. I process my own black and white, C-41 is processed by a local lab and scanned by myself. I plan on doing my own E6 processing this year though, as it is getting harder to find places to do it, particularly at a reasonable price.
