This image is from this morning's test comparing the Hasselblad/Imacon 132c digital back to a new 39CFH back to see the difference between 22 and 39 megapixels. I'm doing a variety of food, architecture, people and whatever else I can in four test days. I like these bottles of Provencal Fancy Bread Dippers from Sassafras Enterprises; they're olive oil infused the natural essence of rosemary, garlic, chili pepper or basil.
Try saying that with your mouth full.
I have some ideas about photo illustrations of food in the underwater setting and started testing with a bottle of Red Truck wine. My neighbors, Herb and Jill, will be glad to see the bottle going to a good cause. We're about 8' underwater with the bottle on a grecian column looking up at the surface with the mansion/chateau in the background. Where are we going from here? Stay tuned.
Experimenting at dusk and checking some angles. It was raining hard enough to have the Hasselblad and digital back under an umbrella, but not hard enough to get the street glistening/reflective wet. For a production version, we would get a water truck since it would be unlikely to get a colored sky and rain on the same day. To get the picture I have in mind, must sometimes watch the weather for days or weeks. Impressive building.
A long-term personal project is photographing people mimicking people on painted walls.
The woman under the shower wall was behind the Scuba Shack dive shop in Cozumel, Mexico. Young Amy came from the hotel pool across the street and had a similar bikini (serendipity).
The surfer girl with the woody (station wagon) is on the street wall of the Corner 24 Surf Shop in Virginia Beach, VA (24th Street & Pacific Avenue). The live person is my assistant, Christina.
