Yosemite Falls Across the Meadow - 04-01-09
Yosemite Valley - California

April 1 - 2009 

I spent several days humping my RB67 system around Yosemite Valley on a wet year. In fact it was the last wet year before the current drought started.

While the kit was heavy, something in the 35-45lb range, the results are not like the toy pictures taken with these new fangled electric cameras.

At full resolution this image is a 30x40 and has incredible detail.

I have recently been using a digital zone system method that I have been cooking up and the results are definitely worth the effort.

I did this image some time ago and posted it without the zone system processing, it is here, if you compare the two you will see that I am really onto something in terms of making images in the digital domain that have rich tonalities.

This is a 121 megapixel image scanned from a frame of Kodak NC-160 color film and reprocessed into B&W.
