    Discussing a Nuri Bilge Ceylon photograph

    http://www.nuribilgeceylan.com/turke...ope4.php?sid=4

    I can't think of anything to say about these except that they are absolutely magnificant!
    His prints are 48" wide inkjets. They are obviously made with something other than the usual view camera on a tripod. Does anyone know anything about his technique?

    Well, the silence about these has certainly been deafening.

    hi bill

    over on the large format forum
    there was a thread about this ..
    it seems that he uses a d** seitz 6x17 camera
    and does some sort of d**/technique - "dragan style" ...

    now that THAT is out of the way.
    i enjoyed his portraits a lot. one doesn't think of
    panoramic format for portraits, but it works really well ..

    Regardless of the medium I have enjoyed the images and am glad Bill brought them to my attention.

    I wonder if these may actually be still frames from his Cinemascope camera? Perhaps that would explain the title. You could easily make HUGE prints from the 70mm negative.
    Incidentally, I ordered the DVD of his last film, (about a photographer in Istanbul), but haven't screened it yet.

    According to the fellas here: http://theonlinephotographer.blogspo...o-heck-is.html

    He would be using a normal DSLR with a wideangle lens, and then would simply crop.

    As for the image discussion, I'd say that their Brueghel aspect is fantastic, but the digital manipulation is infelicitous in many instances.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    On the LF Forum, consensus was that he used a swing-lens panoramic camera. Nobody seems to really know.
