Title: Photography Showcase 3 per week limit
Post by: chunky on April 15, 2018, 06:10:31 pm
Hey all don't know if anyone would be interested in a thread of this nature, but I find myself without a decent trip report or reason to share photos quite often so thought a thread for us who like to show off may be just the thing......with a weekly limit for TOR ;)

To kick off bumped in to MatthewJC who was leading a group around Cwmorthin at the weekend and he asked to let him know how the shot came out. Here you go Matt

That is a cracking shot. I work in there myself a couple of times a week and never get tired of taking pictures of Cwm, but that is the best view of that chamber I've seen. Lovely picture.
One from me of the same MatthewJC in the same mine last week.

Craven had a cracking club meet down Lancaster Hole last weekend. Several trips were made by its members with everyone having a great time.
I cannot take credit for this superbly lit photo of 'Bob's Boss'  in the upper series as this was taken by CPC member Simon Parker.

However, great thread to start Mark...Most of my photo's are just snaps that try and capture the spirit of a club meet..however, if by accident I come up with something half decent, I'll continue the thread.

Nice Tommy,

looking forward to seeing more. Let me know if you get a micro 4/3 would be interested to hear how you get on with it. Sure is lighter than hauling a dslr around. Will have a play with mine over the coming weeks, been great as a video camera but haven't played with it for photo's yet.

Cheers Mark, a photo-mate has set me on to looking at Fujis as their current crop are very nice, I'm very impressed with some of his high-ISO shots - you'd never know compared to a G11!

A couple from Saturday, SUSS had an excellent training weekend staying at the TSG with NUCC and ICCC.
There were plenty of people on good long SRT trips, surveying, bolting and rigging, and more...

Here's one of a little visited bit of Ogof Craig a Ffynnon. Focus could have been better but I found this place intriguing as you could really get a feel for how the nature of the chamber had changed over large periods of time as you noticed small details such as fresh calcite deposition over muddied formations.

Sorry, I got interrupted and had to abandon my computer. I was going to continue that we didn't leave the poor thing down there, but a member of our party, who happened to be a vet, rigged up a makeshift harness and we pulled her (the sheep, not the vet) out, and off it trotted, happy as Larry. Oddly enough, as we were organizing things, another party came along and pitched in; it also included a vet, and, indeed, our party included a shepherd – so the poor thing was in good hands.

At the request of Pegasus, here are a couple from a trip into OFD1 at the weekend, the first is by The Column at the end of Column Passage and the second is from the other side of the duck that leads to The Eagle's Nest.
Unfortunately, there was a fair amount of camera shake, so I think I may need to return with a tripod.

I'm not mega happy with this image but it was the best of the shoot and my first time shooting underground. I think I missed focus probably should have used a higher f-stop and lower shutter speed.

In the future, I may try and get the subjects to use all their lights and reduce mine in an effort to get more dynamic lighting.

The Miao Room is the largest known cave chamber by volume in the world.
It is a part of the Gebihe cave system, located in Ziyun Getu He National Park.
The chamber  was discovered by a French expedition 1989.
This year a British led expedition returned to complete the 3D scanning begun in 2013 to create the most accurate detail model of the chamber to date.
For an idea of scale the stalagmite is measured at 148 feet tall and the bulb holder at the back of the shot is around 150m away from the camera.

Some little bits of feedback from what I've found. Feel free to ignore me!

two ways to get the most out of that speedlite:
1) increase your ISO - the D7200 could go up to ISO 1600 or 3200 with little or no signs of noise (with proper exposure). This gains you 2 or 3 stops of light, meaning you can stop down the aperture for the same exposure to f/6.3 or f/9 (numbers might be slightly off). This will give you significantly better depth of field.

2) move the speedlite off camera for more directional lighting. Strobist blog is a decent read for those starting to use the flash off camera. This of course involves more faff - and is probably the main source of cave photographers bad reputation for slowing trips down!

If the main source of light in the photo is the speed light, changing the shutter speed shouldn't change much to either the exposure or clarity of the shot. The speed light flashes at a tiny fraction of a second (1/10,000 ish usually) and provided it is the main/only source of light it will freeze the subject.

Really like the framing of the photo, a nice caving shot, so don't take this as criticism at all!

Thanks josh that’s really helpful a few other people have said to me about using off camera flash so I think a radio trigger may be on the wish list.

I find the noise is noticeable if I pixel peep at higher ISO’s but maybe I should just get over that. I come from a landscape background where ISO 100 is the norm. Plus that lenses sweet spot is F5.6.

Title: Re: Photography Showcase 3 per week limit
Post by: Fulk on October 31, 2018, 11:02:08 pm
Hi, BE, isn't HC 110 a B & W developer? So – colour neg in B & W developer sounds a bit nutty? Still, the end result looks OK!

(What's wrong with good old-fashioned digital?  ;D)

(Wezzit? – Calf Holes?)
Title: Re: Photography Showcase 3 per week limit
Post by: TheBitterEnd on November 03, 2018, 05:21:55 pm
Yes it is a B&W developer and yes, calf holes. Being a hip and trendy hipster  ;)  I've got back into shooting film and thought I'd have a go somewhere easy to see how it went however I must have got something trapped in the seal of the pelicase on the way out because when I got home there was a bit of water in it. The old Pentax ME Super was wet and on winding back the film it was fairly obvious that the water had got inside. The main priority was saving the camera and fortunately I got that dried out and it seems to be working (haven't had a film through it since though) but given that the film was wet and likely to stick together in the can I was pondering what to do with it since I don't have C41 chemicals; someone suggested that it was possible to process C41 in B&W dev so with nothing to loose I thought I'd give it a go.

The result looks grainy but I suspect that is mainly because the colour neg is orange and very low contrast  so I had to push it a lot in the scanner to get something out of it.

One from the weekend. Pant Mawr Pot

Love the colour it’s nice to see some caving images that are more than just brown and white.

I thought I would post one of the photographs that I took while in OFD with the help from Bill Nix and Mark Burkey, the photograph is of Will trying not to fall in a particularly deep section of the stream way. Jake.

A nice trip into Easegill to photograph Arson Shaft with Northern Pennine Club, somewhere I've wanted to photograph for a while. Its a really fine pitch just off the main passage, well worth a visit.

That is an absolutely stunning picture Gary! And looks a great bit of cave too.

If you don't mind, I'd be very tempted to get that printed for my kitchen wall.

Thanks Pete and you're very welcome to (thanks for asking). You can get the high res version from Flickr which should be good enough to print. It actually works well rotated 90 degrees right too if you want a portrait version.

Martel Chamber, found at the end of the Hanke Canal in Škocjan Caves is Europes largest cave chamber.
Here a view from the sump end of the chamber.

4 cavers use several high powered strobes and flash bulbs to illuminate this shot.

unfortunately you don't get a full appreciation in low resolution. For full resolution version check out my Flickr version here:

Snapped this quickly as the caver emerged from Sump 1 in Swildon's. Quite lucky to catch this moment as the water pours out of the helmet.

I wouldn't be at all surprised to find that the chamber in Torca del Carlista, N. Spain, is a fair bit bigger.

I've just returned home after a fantastic weekend filming a documentary with Shropshire Scouts Caving Team. This is some of the team in the incredibly beautifully decorated Gnome Passage, Ogof Ffynnon Ddu. The illumination was provided by 3 Fenix FD65 3800 lumen torches.

A few from the weekend of my beginners, Amy and Grant.

Swildons Hole was very splashy and great for photos.

These guys had a great time. They've done plenty of cave diving but so far managed to avoid the "dry" aspect of the sport. They are super excited now about going caving in France in between their diving days.
