Week 1 of 52 week photo challenge

January 11, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I've issued a 52 week challenge to myself. My favorite shot of the week will appear on this page. The image may be exceptional or it may require additional work. The purpose for my selection for this blog is to enable me to reflect in writing on the ways in which the photographs contribute to an interesting body of work, or not.

This week's photo is Woodsy Chair, New Years Day 2020. It was shot with a Vermeer pinhole camera f/170 using Kodak Porta 160, 17.6 secs. I used a small tripod, 9 inches tall, that I had recently acquired at a camera show.

In order to take the shot, I had to lay on the ground and position the equipment on a small slope of muddy earth. (Later when I was home the muddy clothes and sneaks were tossed in the clothes bin for later cleaning, but I was content with my work for the first day of the new year.)

In particular, I am pleased with the incredible depth of field and enjoy looking at the interplay of the greens and red, and how they mix with the earth colors. It was an overcast afternoon and the redwood trees contributed to the subdued lighting of the day, and out of the quiet gray, this red chair jumped into view.
