Plaubel Makina 67 with Fuji Velvia 100

 Three images from a recent visit to Plastiras Lake, GREECE. Shot with a Plaubel Makina 67 and Fujifilm Velvia 100.
 I had to convert the third image to black and white, since colors were all messed up.
Velvia is a very tricky film to shoot, dynamic range is very limited (four to five stops), and you really have to nail exposure to get good images. Shooting with a rangefinder camera like the Makina 67, is  difficult to use effectively Graduated ND filters, since you don’t actually see the effect in the viewfinder. I have marked some positions with white dots in my LEE fiters , but it still is a difficult process. For landscapes I used to employ a Mamiya 645 Pro TL, which is a SLR camera, very easy to work with filters, but I don’t own this camera anymore, and shooting landscapes with my 35mm film cameras cannot produce the quality of medium format film.

Enjoy the images!
