HORIZONTALS + VERTICALS
This image was created early in my career and was shot using a 4x5 film Linhof and 210mm Schneider lens. The purpose of the shot was to both contextually show the house within the very isolated and rough environment and to demonstrate the nighttime lighting constraints residences have in turtle habitat areas. A daytime shot of the house from the same location yields very little detail as the structure disappears back into the thick landscape. Overall the shot took just on two hours to create. After initially setting up on a neighbouring residence’s floor framing I had to wait until the right moment to commit this shot to film. Digital capture practices of today may have allowed enough time to return back to site and capture additional frames but this was the only shot taken for that evening. This is one picture that tells a thousand words.
