WEBINAR: Medium Format for Fashion with Frank Doorhof

Frank Doorhof webinar

Join us November 20th for our latest and greatest live video webinar, sponsored by Mamiya Leaf and featuring Dutch photographer Frank Doorhof.

Frank will show how he works with a studio setup, explaining his workflow as he creates stunning, high contrast portraits on location. If you think your studio is too small, Frank will show you tricks that will allow you to maximize the possibilities of any location you work in.

Frank’s approach to teaching is according to his motto “Why fake it, when you can create it”. He strongly believes that if you master your light by really understanding what you’re doing you can be freed of the burden that is holding back a lot of photographers in their creativity. When you understand what light is doing you can manipulate it and start thinking about creating killer images instead of struggling to get the look you’re after.

During the webinar Frank will be working with the new Leaf Credo digital back and will also show you how this back has changed his approach in location shoots. Join in the chat room and ask Frank questions as he shoots live on set.

This will be a jam packed hour that will have you glued to the screen, this…. you just can’t miss.

Frank Doorhof on the Credo 60

DoorhofDutch photographer Frank Doorhof has just purchased a Leaf Cred0 60 as an upgrade from his Aptus-II 7. Known for his fashion, glamour and celebrity portraits, Doorhof also teaches photography workshops worldwide.

In a remarkably short time of owning his new Credo 60, Doorhof has published a detailed review of his new acquisition. Complete with specs and many sample photos, this is one of the first comprehensive reviews we’ve seen on any Credo model.

Beginning with an interesting comparison of current DSLRs versus medium format cameras, Doorhof explores depth-of-field, speed, and f-stop range. He stresses the quality of the detail he can pull from the Credo 60, and that the speed of one frame per second holds up during a fashion shoot.

Doorhof gives high marks to the Credo 60′s display. When his workshop was doing outdoor work in direct sunlight, one of his students had difficulty seeing the back of a Nikon display. In comparison, the Credo 60 delivered full detail at 80% brightness. He calls the Credo 60 display “amazing.”

He cites the USB3 support and batteries as other highlights. Here’s a quote from Doorhof’s conclusion:

I LOVE the new Credo 60, it’s a very “sexy” back with a great display and it’s FAST. The resolution is nice (and I can’t wait to do some real detailed shots with this back). Color and sharpness are amazing like I’m used from Leaf, the “roundness/3D” look is even better than with my old AptusII 7. USB3 is a really good addition seeing that Apple is dropping Firewire800 from their MacBookPro series.

Doorhof also rates the Leaf Credo 60 as a “better buy” over the Phase One IQ. He wraps up his review with a 100% crop from an earlier shot in the review. The detail is stunning.
