Salton Sea

Salton Sea

Although I’ve been able to make some appealing images with my Zone VI 8×10 view camera, there were a couple shortcomings that began to bother me after about a year of use. First, because it’s made of wood, I always felt that it was a bit imprecise, and this goes against my nature. Next, since my 4×5 camera was made by Toyo, I couldn’t easily share lenses between the cameras unless I swapped out lensboards. Therefore, when a Toyo 810M view camera came up for sale, I jumped at the opportunity and purchased it.
.
Interestingly, I purchased this camera from Chris Jordan, an artist and photographer who is well known for several projects: “Midway”, “Intolerable Beauty”, and “In Katrina’s Wake”. I highly recommend you check out his work at www.chrisjordan.com

For this particular image, it was made at the Salton Sea in 2007 with a Toyo 810M view camera on Fuji Provia. Who says you can’t shoot directly into the sun, especially on transparency film?

Here’s another image made in Point Mugu State Park with a Zone VI 8×10 view camera on Provia. I’m not sure why I never scanned and printed this image until now. Like the two previous images, I feel that this B&W version is better.

I’ve always loved reflections in glass buildings. This one especially caught my eye due to the abstraction created between the building and it’s reflection. This image was photographed with a Minolta X-370 on Kodak Tri-X.

Most people who drive to Mammoth will recognize this old shed. It can be seen from Highway 395 just south of Crowley Lake and sits in the most beautiful setting.
