Sentinel Dome Jeffrey Pine

Sentinel Dome Jeffrey Pine

This is the Jeffrey Pine located at the top of Sentinel Dome in Yosemite National Park – it was most notably photographed by Ansel Adams many years ago before it died and began to slowly break down. This is possibly my favorite spot in all of Yosemite, and one of only a couple spots I made a return trip to see again. The dome itself is, I think, the highest point along the valley rim, short of Half Dome itself, and a beautiful spot to take everything in. Add the fact that it seems to get hit with the most amazing colors in the seconds before sunset and you’ve got a pretty special place.

The light on my return trip to July wasn’t quite as remarkable as it had been last October on my first visit to the park, but it was still very nice. I really wanted to try my luck up there again because as much as I love shooting with my Nikon D40 I really wish I could do some real enlargements from it that really aren’t feasible.

So… I got a new camera and went back up there. After much pondering my options I decided that a small incremental change in digital camera resolutions wasn’t really what I was interested in – I opted to go for a large format camera instead. So after much ado about scanning, I can finally share with you my first scanned shot taken with my Tachihara 4x5 (film, old-school) camera. I opted for large format because if you really want to resolve a lot of detail it’s tough to beat going from a sensor area of ~.75 square inches, to 20 square inches for capturing detail. To then get the absolute most out of the shot I then sent it to Calypso Inc. to have a 400Mb drum scan done to generate a ~75MP 16bit image. What you’re seeing here is a significantly downsized version of that film scan.

I’ve begun by shooting Fuji Provia 100F film. I constantly struggle with digital when it comes to setting white balance and getting everything to look just as I saw it – I tend to be as literal as I can be. But it’s always subjective and I still feel like there’s a pseudo-responsibility for photography to be fairly literal and genuine. I chose Provia because it has a nicely saturated palette that’s doesn’t seem to be out of control either – I still haven’t developed any Fuji Velvia myself (though I’m working slowly through a roll of 35mm velvia), I am concerned I’ll find it too saturated for my taste (probably not true in practice). It also has a very fine grain which is nice for the high-res scan. When opening up the scan in photoshop to make some final adjustments on, it’s invaluable to me to have the color slide in-hand to reference at the same time.

I shot this using a 210mm Caltar lens that I picked up really cheap used. I used a moderate amount of front tilt to bring the focal plane downward and keep the tree and foreground as sharp as possible, but didn’t stop down excessively as I wanted the distant background to be somewhat defocused. I converted the colorspace specifically for printing before I created this file for uploading, so naturally the colors appear off a little, but you get the idea.

It took me about a month to get the slide developed and more than a month after that to get it scanned, so the instant-gratification of shooting digital is definitely missed, but so far I’m liking the results of shooting large format. I have a ton of new learning to do though too. If anyone’s interested in taking up large format I strongly recommend giving it a try – it’s really very fun.
