Sunrise at Currumbin, QLD – Australia.
This was my very first shoot with the new medium format camera back in September – pretty exciting! However, I made the fatal mistake of trying to compose my images with the standard waist-level viewfinder (rather than the prism I had bought) for this shoot, and found I couldn’t see what I was composing 90% of the time due to the pre-dawn light (or lack thereof!). I think I had about a 1 degree angle in which I could actually see some image in the ground glass!
Because of this I didn’t hold very high hopes for my first shoot with medium format, but I was pleasantly surprised when I got the slides back to see that 4 of the 10 images I shot are actually quite nice. More to come soon!
Shot on Velvia 50 transparency film with a Mamiya RB67, 50mm C lens, B+W polariser and Lee filters.
