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!

I've been wanting to shoot more portraits lately, but in combination with the surf community that I've been so involved with the past year.  My good friend, Kevin Tanner, behind Soudnings Surf Co creates some gorgeous handcrafted boards.  He does all his own shaping, resin work, and glassing, and I wanted to photograph some beautiful boards to highlight his craftsmanship as well as portraits of my friends who ride them.  I decided to do board portraits.

A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather.  And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall!  On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.

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!
