I got a new (used) DSLR this week, and I’m quite pleased to be working with it. However, I’m polishing up an older gem from the vault instead of posting something new. I’ve got a pretty good backlog, so a new image will have to really pop for me to push something out of that queue.
I screwed up some of these panoramas when I was there on the cliff, including from the non-infrared camera. Some of them were pretty good, but didn’t really get enough of the ocean, which seems important to the total energy. But I think this one came through quite well, and it does what I like in a photo: it not only conveys the energy of the place, but it transforms the two dimensional space of the photo into an energetic experience of its own.
I’ve got some exciting stuff going on in photography right now. Getting to know a new and better printer, a big Epson pigment ink beast. Also trying some new beautiful papers. And working on an ambitious piece, which it’s probably better to wait and see on. Hopefully I can pull it off.
Looking for something else entirely, I happened upon this image, which is an altogether different time and place and latitude from the trellis window girl in the last post. But also a child in an interesting space, with a trellis roof above, open to sky. This will definitely do for now!
I started looking through raw images in my Lightroom catalog the other evening, and this image jumped out at me. I decided to try opening the RAW file in Photoshop to see what was what. Then I decided to search for the file and see if I already had a non-raw version of it. I found one, and the modified date was exactly one year ago! I guess this date just sort of feels like this here in northern New England.
