ShadowMask Part 2: Proof of concept 1

After cutting out the first gobo the plan was to test how well the overall concept worked in the studio environment using digital.

Conclusion:

The overall concept looks like it will work well with a little bit of tweaking especially with the light not associated with the gobo.

Still need to test using a “negative” gobo and then move onto a full scale test using large format film…

As I think about the overall project more and more I think it might end up being centered around “spirit animals” with each individual choosing which animal they most closely associate with.

More to come 🙂

Demi Half Frame Print

Finally got round to printing a shot from my old Canon Demi S (deceased)

With the 6×6 enlarger mask I made I can only print 3 frames at a time so I might have to experiment with a slightly larger mask and hope the enlarger handles it. Hopefully I can get up to 5 frames printed…

Lost Civilisation

After all the flooding a couple of weeks ago it is strange the things you find washed down streams…

Shooting From the Hip

I haven’t had much of a chance to go out shooting lately and to be perfectly honest I’m feeling a bit rusty.

Need to brush up on my distances by eye 🙂

Stump

Sea bleached tree stump at the mouth of the Wainuiomata river near the Bearing Head lighthouse.

Was out this way yesterday and finally walked to the lighthouse which was about a 3 hour return walk. We had the added bonus of 80-100 km/h wind and had to hold the hand of my smallest so she wouldn’t blow away. Quite an adventure 🙂

You can also see the lens aberration from the lens damage on the taking lens quite clearly in the top right of  the frame
