Looking Out Across the Rockies From Mt. Evans

Every year I make the journey to Mt. Evans (about an hour’s drive from my house) at least a couple of time. I wander around in the crisp air, it can be in the 90’s on the front range but you’ll want a light jacket in the mountains. The views are incredible

This image was shot on a slow speed film and developed in a staining developer. The scaned and post processed in Lightroom.

Abandoned Stone Building

This image of an old stone structure was taken on the Island of Burray one of Scotland’s Orkney Island (they lay just off the northern coast). The image was taken with a wide angle lens on high speed Black & White film and developed in a standard developer.

While Walking Around Edinburgh

I don’t usually post figure studies but I was so impressed with Scotland I decided to post some images that I took.

I recently returned from a trip to northern Scotland. Edinburgh was my last stop on the way home. I was wandering around the old part of the city and saw what I though was potentially an interesting image.

I used Lightroom to fix the image. There was over 10 stops difference between the sky and the building on the right. The buildings in the background were almost black. And of course make the image Black & White.

Standing With Her Legs Crossed

I used a moderately slow shutter to give the image a little softness (as opposed to creating a blur indicating motion).

This is an analog image taken with a high speed Black & White film. It was developed in very dilute highly active developer.

Two lights were used, one was placed on either side of the frame about even with the model.

The contrast and exposure was adjusted and the image was cropped using Lightroom.

View from My Room

I spent the last two weeks in Scotland (this image was on the Isle of Skye)  roaming around taking pictures…It was nice to get out of the studio. This is the view from my room at the B&B in the the first morning of my stay.

This is a digital image that I converted to Black & White via Lightroom where it was cropped and the contrast adjusted.

Looking Left

Looking Left

I was using this lighting to show a muscular model but still keep the image of the model elegant.

Two lights were used, one was placed on either side of the frame. Both light were slightly in front of the model. This was done to create an image that is almost 3D.

This is a digital image processed in Lightroom. The contrast and exposure were adjusted and the image was cropped and rendered to a Black & White via a Lightroom’s Black & White sliders.

Hands on Turso

Hands on Turso

This abstract was done with low key lighting in order to evoke a mood the way a minor key does in music. A considerable amount of grain was added to mimic grain in older film stocks to further create a mood.

One light was used, it was placed to the left of the frame.

This is a digital image processed in Lightroom. The contrast and exposure were adjusted and the image was cropped and rendered to Black & White via a Lightroom preset.

End of the Line, Borius Pass

End of the Line, Boreas Pass, Como, Colorado

On Boreas Pass there is a stretch of about 100 yards of railroad track. This leads me to ask why didn’t remove all of it.

The tracks stop in the middle of nowhere. It creates interest with a visual question, and the question would be different for different people.

This was shot on color slide film developed normally. The slide was scanned into Lightroom where it was rendered to Black & White via Lightroom’s Black & White sliders. Some adjustments were made to contrast and exposure. The image was also cropped slightly.
