This previous weekend, I was at Point Reyes shooting as part of a Hasselblad workshop where I was able to use the new H4D camera. This camera is literally a beast weighing 5 to 10 lbs, depending on the lens you have mounted, and accepts a variety of digital backs ranging from 40-60 MP. (fyi the camera costs more than my car.)
For one of our morning shoots, we had selected a point by Historic E Ranch where we could catch the sunlight hitting the coastal coves. After I had shot the sunrise, I was looking around to see what else I could photograph and noticed the nearby cows. I guess they had noticed me as well as this very curious and happy looking cow came up to investigate me. I stuck my camera through the fence boards and took the above shot of the cow just before she came up to lick my camera. Thankfully, she just got the lens hood and not lens element itself.
Although I had gone into the weekend looking to see how I could use the Hasselblad (or any medium format digital camera) for landscape photography, this cow shot turned out to be my favorite image from the weekend.
