Behind The Scenes

Behind the scenes collage of my previous image. This shows the steps I take from negative to drum scan to final image to print. This print is 16″ x 22″, but can easily print larger, because it was scanned at 4000dpi. However, I feel that the image speaks better and becomes more intimate at a smaller size.

This image was shot with a Contax 645 medium format camera.

Descanso Gardens

Descanso Gardens is a botanical garden located in La Canada Flintridge, a suburb of Los Angeles. It has quite a variety of plants, but they host the largest collection of camellia trees in North America that are approximately 70-80 years old. Additionally, the garden has a large selection of oak trees and is a wonderful place to visit.
.
From a photographic standpoint, there are many interesting opportunities. A simple walk along one of the many trails reveals great studies of light. This image is one that I quite liked and was shot with a Contax 645 medium format camera.

Culver City, California

These trees are located in my neighborhood, and I’ve always liked their shape on their own but more so as a perch for the crows. They just beckoned me to take their photograph.
.
To get this perspective, I had to lay on the sidewalk, which was covered in bird poop. Furthermore, I had no less than three people stop and ask me if I was okay. One person in particular was a friend, @psandqs, who was out for an evening run. He didn’t know it was me on the ground when he approached, so we had a good laugh after the fact.
