About Alex Iacob Photography

For me photography is the only objective way of depicting what life is and not what we think, feel, hear, read or believe it is and to detach a moment from the lapse of time. The more of these immortalized precious moments called pictures we can add to our album before we close it, the more we made of it.

This stream should be viewed with Safari browser (Mac) and not with Mozilla Firefox. As much as I like that browser, their colour profiles are crap!
Constructive criticism is more than welcome :-)

For those, like me, sometimes wondering, what a certain picture could have been taken with, here the weapons of choice:


Hasselblad 503CW

Carl Zeiss Distagon CF 4/50mm T* FLE
Carl Zeiss Planar CF 2,8/80mm T*
Carl Zeiss Sonnar CF 4/180mm T*

Extension Tubes:
16mm, 32mm and 56mm

Rolleilflex 2.8F (Franke&Heidecke) TLR Carl Zeiss Planar 2,8/80


Gossen Starlite2
Gossen Variosix F2


Epson Perfection v750 Pro
Silverfast Ai (lots of options, but quite annoying, especially for slides) /VueScan (not very helpful) / Epson Scan (easy to use and gets the job done)
+MF holders with ANR glass from betterscanning.com


Nikon D80 (DX- 23.6 x 15.8 mm CCD, [1.5 x FOV crop] sensor)

Nikkor AF 50 f1.4D
Sigma 10-20mm, f4.0-5.6
Tamron 17-50mm, f2.8

It does make a difference to use at least a monopod, like this:
Benro Monopod MC-66 Carbon
-or if you have the time and patience, do it properly with a tripod like this:
Benro Travel Angel Tripod C-068
Benro KS- 0 Ball Head (both very light and not bulky)

Filters I sometimes use:
Hoya Circ-Pol 67 Pro1Digital
Hoya Circ-Pol 67 Slim wide angle
Hoya ND 8 HMC filter

Briefing Room: Photoshop CS4
