Re: How to get the Jill Greenberg effect

I love what you are saying! You are dedicated and you will reach far more then 95% of the people in here. I have now seen your website, and you are pretty close. Some of the pictures was great. But i sont like the flat digitally expression. Buy a chep MF-camera and shoot film. Let yout local lab scan it for you.

Re: How to get the Jill Greenberg effect

Two days ago I made 80x60cm prints from 5dmkii - quality - delicious. This one (I've just posted) is from 350D + 85 1.8, so not for huge formats .

Find a cheap Mamiya RZpro or Hasselblad 500C/M but get some good 140-150mm optics for portraits. In one year you can reach far! I use many hours a day recearching and learning my self.

Re: How to get the Jill Greenberg effect

Can somebody please clarify why it is so important to use a top end camera like a Hasselblad?

I can name a few pro photographers who have stimulated significant debate on various forums who don't use such high end camera and still create images that no one can get anywhere near.

the work of these individuals is more down to lighting and post processing than the actual camera.

I think this is very much and individual choice. ANd its also up to the viewer to decide witch image is far superior to an other. Personaly i can say that i use the equipment i use beacuase it gives me what imn looking for. SO i switch between SLR/MF and LF for the assignment and purpose/expression in the picture. If High end equipment didnt matter, it wouldnt be made or bought.

Why isnt they driving a Moris Mini in F1, its a far cooler and nicer car.

Well despite the high end equipment you are using, after looking at the 'Saved for Web images' Timeactor has produced, compared to those produced by your goodself, I think Timeactors shot are much closer to the look of Greenberg.

In this respect my advice to Timeactor would be, forget the expensive camera, just carry on what you're doing, really good work!

This is just my 'individual choice'

Good luck in your future judgment.
