What a moment to be on a ‘Best Of’ list……….Film Photography Blogs that You Should Follow.….. That’s a Real Win, and non-distracting. I’m on the list, so I don’t have to keep trying to BE on the list. And I made the list for Blogging Here, not on someone else’s site.
I’ll take that as a sign that Untangling myself from needless social media distraction is right direction.
I was recently Challenged by @scottsphoto1218 to post 7 images, B&W, No explanations and no people. Similar to the 7 Day Challenge on Facebook in January. Try Challenging Your Photo Friends…
Mine have a common theme, although that is not required. Can You Guess the Theme?
Vacation Contest Submissions. There is still time if you are interested,
Check it out Here.
Here are my submissions for the Moab Photo symposium Wrap-up Book:
Counter Clockwise, beginning in the Upper Left:
- 2007, Arches National Park
- 2011, Cisco Ghost Town (Near Moab)
- 2017, Buck Canyon, Canyonlands National Park
And my ‘action’ portrait, From Courthouse Wash, Arches National Park.
I’ll post and update when the book comes out…………..
Two perspectives on the same scene: one with T-Max 400, the other Digital Infrared:
I’m showing my final choice first:
I went through several steps. The Full Frame image is in the upper left, and proceeding clockwise through my steps. First removing some of the excess sky but keeping both trees and the curves; then removing the secondary tree to make a tighter composition; still not liking the sky; removing the sky from the single tree, but cutting out too much of the curve. Finally, settling on the cropped version I liked, deciding that I wanted more of the of the road, which had attracted me in the first place.
Then I took a second look and decided that maybe Crop #3 had some redeeming qualities. Hmmmmmmm………
Background: I’ve been experimenting with Infrared Films. Those that survive, that is. After much frustration, and seeing my husband’s success with the digital infrared conversion (Nikon-1 mirrorless camera) I opted to have a camera converted to full spectrum for my Christmas Present. Infrared Images are the only digital B&W I will post on this site. ot a judgement, just my preference. Film Experiments and Discussion Posted Here.
It’s a matter of Perspective
Moab: Green River Overlook, Canyonlands
I hadn’t meant to be away so long. Gosh, 6 months. The Personal Vision Workshop turned into a bit of a bust. But I have decided to get this space organized and post only my best images here. So this will be come my ‘Fine Art’ Page, in contrast to my photo diary begun so long ago. I’ll try to post only my best B&W here.
