From the Field

I’ve just finished developing shots made with my Zero Image Pinhole during my stay at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in Amherst, Virginia.  I was able to develop the negatives using the coffee and vitamin C mix, Caffenol C, but didn’t have a scanner.  So these first looks at the negatives are worked up from digital shots on a light table–a way to keep up and running while on the road.

I used Fuji Acros 100 film and spot metered for the bright snow.  The radiating slats are partial angles of a wood sculpture that sits out in the field, across from the art studios here.  I shot them in late afternoon light and love the graphic effect but will see how they work up later in a scan.

One thought on “From the Field

  1. Such fabulous transformation of common images —wood slats of a sculpture—into personal vision: geometric, transcendant and haunting.

    Carol, I can always sense what’s going on in your work beyond the eye and into imagining. Thank you for the offerings on this site that share your spirit , and lift mine, with each visit………
