I shot this image of Tracey and Ben in 2012 on the Mamiya Pro 645 (120 Medium Format) camera with Kodak Portra 160 and scanned the print and tweaked in PSE10.
As usual, I rated the ISO at – 2/3 stops under (i.e. 160 down to 100) for slight over exposure for details in the shadows and to make the image glow.
I will be uploading it to One Vision Imaging and having it framed in simple black with a white border.

I tried a new combination using a Mamiya 645 Pro and 80mm lens, shooting on Kodak T-Max, developed in Ilford DD-X.
I wanted to create a high contract image and waited 20 minutes for the sun to come out behind the clouds.
This shot of Buddha and the flowers was taken on my F80 (35mm) with HP5. It’s turned out OK, as a direct comparison to medium format.
My conclusion is that 120 medium format is very interesting and has a good look and can produce really sharp shots. But this is the second time I have developed a roll and noticed it’s very under exposed, even though I set the ISO at 250, and not 400. This should give it 2/3 more over exposure, to lock in the details. But the roll was flat. May be I need to use an external light meter?
All shots printed on Ilford paper and scanned and tweaked.
