New Work:  Creative Close-ups of Prospect Flowers

New Work: Creative Close-ups of Prospect Flowers

September 09, 2011

 Spent some time just shooting for myself this summer.  Spent two rolls of film just shooting flowers and other things around the yard between my house and my neighbors'!  Finally got around to editing some of it and here's the result.  The film was cross-processed, E-6 to C-41.  I've been enjoying experimenting with cross-processing film this year, and have definitely been happy as well as disappointed with some results.  For those of you who don't know, cross-processing is developing a roll of color film in the opposite film chemistry it's intended for, i.e.  developing slide film (E-6) in color negative chemistry (C-41).  It can result in a lot of cool color shifts and contrasty images but is highly unpredictable.  Either way, here's some of the images I ended up with, enjoy!

Some days I just don't feel like swimming.  Some days I don't feel like shooting with a 7lb telephoto setup on the beach.  Those days are perfectly suited for drone shots, should the wind be accommodating enough.  

I've only had a couple drone flights this winter, one during a sunny but cold morning at the beach, and a second during a slightly windier day at Point Judith lighthouse. It's always a refreshing perspective!

If you talk to anyway wave hunting lately, most everyone is pretty annoyed with this season's swell.  We usually expect big nor'easter storms to roll thru in the winter months, generating big waves and heavy offshore winds.  Last season we were totally spoiled with head to overhead 6-8'+ days regularly occurring once a week.  This season has been a little different, but perhaps that's a good thing to get me more accustomed to swimming in cold conditions.

I haven't been in the water for sunset in a while.  But the opportunity finally presented itself a couple weeks ago.  The sky was clear for once, there was a bump of swell in the water but apparently no one really deemed it worthwhile because the lineup was empty.  Fellow photographer friend Gus Potter grabbed his board instead of a camera, and the two of us hopped in with only half an hour or so before sunset to catch a few with the one other soul already in the water.  

It was a little windy and wonky, and certainly cold, but it was one of my favorite sessions this month.  You just can't beat that dusky light!
