Mono Lake

Behind the scenes setup of my Toyo 4×5 view camera for the Mono Lake photograph that I showed on January 3rd. As you can see here, there are clouds and contrails in the sky that are also reflected in the water. In my final image, I didn’t want any of this detail, so I used a Lee Filters Big Stopper 10-stop ND filter and exposed Kodak Tri-X for 30 minutes to effectively make them disappear. The water was practically glass smooth, but the long exposure ensured that it would remain that way on the final image. Camera setup is on a Gitzo GT4552GTS tripod with a Manfrotto 405 pan-tilt head and Really Right Stuff quick-release plate. @leefilters @kodak @kodakprofilmbiz @gitzoinspires @manfrottoimaginemore @reallyrightstuff
