Doors From Evans School

I like shooting doors through doors and windows, etc.  And I think I’m going to post this on Thursday Doors Too.

Alternate 5-Frames: Walker Ranch

So here we go.  I’ve decided to re-publish my Emulsive Articles here, after my submission that will post for Halloween disappeared into the ether of the internet.  I explained my position and recommendations on the subject here. All re-publishings will be marked as “Alternate”.

5 Frames of T-Max 400, Exposed @ ISO 200 (6X7 120 Format) by Kathleen Johnson

Last July I spent an afternoon at a special Photographer’s Open House at the Walker Ranch Homestead, a part of the Boulder County Parks and Open Spaces. Located in the Front Range Foothills above Boulder, Colorado, it is a popular hiking area, but the Homestead site is only open to the public a few times per year.

I took my favorite Mamiya 7 with the Mamiya f/4.5 43 mm lens. Some of these images have been cropped. I exposed the film @ ISO 200 with additional compensation for my yellow filter.

An overcast and windy day, so the outdoors photos were so-so. But I fell in love with the Homestead Attic living space. So I present the exterior and we move upstairs.

 

The view through the window was exposed @ f/8 1/60s; Cradle exposed @ f/4.5 4s; Nightstand exposed @ f/4.5 2s; Bed and Chairs with window exposed @ f/8 1s. Of course, all using a tripod and cable release. One neat feature of the Mamiya 7 is that you have a maximum timed exposure up to 4 seconds before you have to use the Bulb setting and time it yourself.

Revisiting Doors Open Denver

It’s Doors Open Denver Weekend, sponsored by the Denver Architecture Foundation……And I’ll be very busy making new images.  One Event that I’ve particularly enjoyed is their Daniels and Fisher Tower Open House.  We have attended it twice……

A Different Perspective on Pinholes

Inspired by an Article “Handheld”  I’ve finally tried out the pinhole in motion technique:

If you look at the ‘Diana Pinhole Box‘ it seems to be suggesting this approach, or at least a less traditional take on pinholes.  So I will continue to experiments………

Putting More of my work out there……
