After a week of teaching at the Coupeville Art Center on Whidbey Island Wa. one of my students and I went for a ride to explore more of the Island. This image is on the north end of the island near Deception Pass. Back light is a difficult situation especially if the foreground is deep green combined with with glowing underbrush in the background. With B+W film you can use a green filter which will lighten and separate the different shades of green. But the draw back here is you lose a couple stops of film speed. Here I used a mono pod that allowed me to shoot a couple stops slower on the shutter speed to make up the difference. Camera support is very useful in low light situations such as shooting under the canopy of the forest. A tripod would allow for much longer shutter speeds but when just strolling a mono pod is a lot easier to carry. enjoy pjc
The Studio 2004
What cha working on?
Yes the minions now much older. But the forecast remains the same.
A piece from a show that we worked together on. We worked and fantasized together on numerous shows, remember the plastic dog poop? Or the catapult of egg tempera paint.
Here from a June 2004 show is the post card Berta had me do a series of portraits to illustrate “My Own Voice” It was a great show. I am pretty sure I have a Berta portrait from almost all her shows. Someday I will print them all and perhaps we will have another show together? Berta, Kelly, Aaron enjoy your adventure. New London, and Norwich arts communities will miss you all. enjoy pjc
Photographic Art It’s time to go and create. One more image using a Roberta Sulls Painting in Background.
On the other side of these doors folks will be lining up in the cold to get into The Hygienic Gallery for their annual event that warms the soul of the New London area arts community. Put a piece of your work in the show? Come see my work and others all mediums. See the link for details.
I really liked the door and mosaic floor. Digital Image enjoy pjc
