Sea Stacks in the Fog

Sea Stacks in the Fog

When you drive along  the west coast on US 1 you’ll find a great picture about every ten feet.

This was shot on Ektachrome E100g  slide film. It was scanned into Lightroom where it was rendered to monochrome via global desaturation.  The contrast and exposure were adjusted and the image was cropped slightly and a small amount of grain was added.

I’ve been asked if my images are for sale, most are, please ask.

Oragon Beach

Oregon Beach

The idea behind this image was to capture very simple lines with varying textures used in a traditional scene. The use of a sepia tone to make it reminiscent of an old postcard but have the composition of a modern image.

This image shot on a high speed negative film, that was processed to a positive image. It was scanned into Lightroom where it was cropped and toned sepia via a Lightroom preset.

Lone Cyrpus

Lone Cypress

This is the famous “Lone Cypress”  on the famous 17 mile drive, near Pebble Beach, California. I had to wait until the afternoon so I could silhouette the tree and get some specular highlights in the ocean.

This was originally shot on Ektachrome E100g slide film. It was then scanned into Lightroom where some minor adjustments were made and it as rendered to Black & White.

Fog Rolling in Along the Oregon Coast

Fog Rolling in Along the Oregon Coast

This image was captured from a high vantage point looking south along the Oregon Coast. The sky was a little stormy and a fog was rolling in, great atmosphere.

This was shot on Ektachrome e100g slide film and converted to Black & White via a Lightroom preset. Then contrast and exposure were adjusted and finally the image was cropped.

September 19, 2013…Day 157

This shot was taken along the Maine coast at dawn. The sun had risen just barely peeking over the horizon, only lighting the boat but not the water. The only light on the water is reflected from the boat. I have to admit luck played a big part in capturing this image. I timed it right but beyond my control are the tides the clouds and being able to place myself just right,

This picture was shot on Ektachrome slide film and scanned into Photoshop. It was retouched slightly and that was the only manipulation.

 

September 14, 2013….Day 152

The heavy grain makes the sky mimic the natural graininess (roughness) of the rocks and beach. The lighter sky and beach balance out the heaviness of the very dark water. That balance is accentuated by the white surf separating the ocean and land.

I would recommend to anyone to take a ride along the coastal highway especially from San Simian  north, if the chance ever presents itself.

This photo was shot on high speed film slightly underexposed and development was adjusted to accommodate the exposure modification. I used a highly active high acutance developer in order to produce a significant grain pattern and sharp edges. The negative was scanned into Lightroom and tweaked.

Portugal 1 small

This photo was taken along the coast Of Portugal. This is the most western point on Continental Europe. This image was made in the late afternoon giving me strong shadows. This allowed the texture of the rocks and water to give the scene three dimentionality.

This image was shot on Kodachrome 64 and scanned into Photoshop.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

July 15, 2013….Day 91

Today I’ll try something a little different. For 90 days I always posted a nude (some times posted with another picture). Today I’m only posting this seascape.

Boat at Dawn-1

This was originally shot on Ektachrome G100e slide film. This was scanned in to Photoshop. There was no manipulation other than a slight cropping.

This picture was shot along the Maine coast as the sun was just starting to rise above the horizon. The light hit the boat but the sun was at such a low angle that the water was not illuminated other than the reflection of the boat.
