Well, on this historic day I wish I had something more profound to write. I don’t, so here’s a link to the video I produced, demonstrating how the images this week were made.
ANNOUNCING THE WINNERS of the print contest: I want to send out a big THANK YOU to all of you who continue to be present here at E X P E R I E N C E. For those who did comment on the Print Contest Images, I put your name in a bowl and drew two winners: Kevin Hawkins and Megan Uhan. Please choose an image from the blog galleries and send me an email with your mailing information.
Today’s post is a departure from the slap zoom and in camera multiple exposure technique I presented on Wednesday. With this image I DID do an in camera multiple exposure on a north shore fern and then flipped it horizontally and vertically, essentially creating 4 panels from 1 image.
Technical: Canon 1Ds Mark II, 24-70mm, Singh Ray Vari ND filter, 10 second shutter.
Canon IN CAMERA Multiple Exposure Method: Since Canon does not provide a multiple exposure feature, I figured out a way to trick it. During the exposure and during the MOVEMENT of the camera I cover the lens with a piece of black foam core. This minimizes blurring, allowing me to capture cleaner moments between movements of the camera.
This is the last of my north shore series from Summer 2008. On Wednesday I’ll be posting a transition image that will lead to another set of strange, weird and provocative images based on landscapes. Until then, please leave a comment (with email address) and become eligible for a print of YOUR choosing (with my approval:)) from my entire collection of images.
Technical Information: Canon 1Ds Mark II, 16 – 35mm, Singh Ray Vari ND filter to slow the shutter, Singh Ray 2 stop Reverse Neutral Density for the sky. f/16 2 sec. shutter speed.
Location: On my stomach, in the sand with elbows in the water 50 yards from the mouth of the Brule River, South Shore of Lake Superior in Wisconsin.
Which do you prefer and WHY (and of course you can say “I prefer neither of them”). Extra points given for creativity!
