Photographer Johnathan Taylor of Cloud 9 Leeds uses the Cambo Wide RS5005, Leaf Credo 40 and Rodenstock 32TS lens for high quality architectural and landscape work.
Jonathan arranged a shoot with Harewood House so that we could create a test report to show the quality of the new Mamiya Leaf Credo 80 digital back when using a technical camera and tilt swing lens.
We were joined by Richard Kilpatrick who will create the report in more detail, this will be published in a professional photographic journal soon.
Harewood House in Yorkshire is one of the treasure houses of England and home to the Count & Countess of Harewood.
Built by York architect John Carr, with interiors by Robert Adam and furniture by Thomas Chippendale, set in ‘Capability’ Brown’s finest landscape, Harewood is the ideal location to test the quality of the new Cambo Wide RS5005 and Leaf Credo 80.
Equipment used; Cambo Wide RS5005, Mamiya Leaf Credo 80, Rodenstock 32TS and Schneider 43TS lenses. We chose not to use any flash or fill in light, we had enough natural light spilling in which was shaded by the blinds, producing a more natural look.
We captured the Chippendale Diana Cabinet with the Schneider 43TS lens and stitched two images with a total pixel size 10311 x 10083 producing a 297.4Mb file.
The State Bed was captured using the Rodenstock 32TS lens and stitched two images with a total pixel size 10144 x 11207 producing a 325.3Mb file.
As we were in the Gallery we also took the opportunity to capture the magnificent ceiling painted by Biagio Rebecca, covering an area of 76 feet long and 24 feet wide.
Jonathan captured the ceiling in sections by simply moving the tripod and stitching the images together to create an image with the total pixel size of 28451 x 8286 producing a 674.5Mb file.
