now thats kind of what i thought, but would some on be bothered, i thought i had found THE MF look.

If anyone accomplishes the MF look, it's this guy. Have a look through his various galleries and you will see some great looking images:

It's the combination of MF AND film that makes this work distinctive. The BW film has high DR as well as great highlight roll off and treatment. MF format also creates that very shallow DOF look.

Nick had said at one time that he only uses two lenses when traveling for these shoots.

yes i am a big fan of his work really inspiring . a true master of his craft .

"Of course, the (tiresome) cynics amongst you will say, well, you could have just added in the clouds afterwards. Yep, you’re right, I could have. But really, how disappointing. And I always find - and you will hear me say this repeatedly - if you are patient enough, what nature eventually gives you is way better and more surprising than what you might have manufactured in Photoshop. So I stick with Nature."
