52 Rolls Week 21:52

This Week wrapping up my trip to the Moab Photo Symposium.  We stayed an extra day to wander through bot Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.  I highly recommend Canyonlands if you are passing through the area.  Often a bit less crowded than Arches, because its a longer drive to get into the heart of the Park.

The Famous and oft photographed ‘Balanced Rock’ from Arches National Park.  Sometimes you do have to make those iconic images for yourself.  Then it can become yours……  Above, T-MAX 400 with a lot of contrast added.  I also repeated some of the shots with my remaining SFX-200.  A couple of comparisons below:

Above: T-MAX 400 with a lot of contrast added.  Below:  SFX-200 has a more ‘natural’ range of contrast.  I was using two different cameras, hence the different perspectives.  Above with 50 mm lens and Below with 45 mm lens.

And a final contrast of perspectives as we say farewell to Canyonlands:

Both SFX-200.  Just a matter of whether landscape or portrait view works best for you.

As you can tell I’m in a phase where I’m experimenting a lot.  That was my plan for the Workshop, and continuing through the summer.  Follow More Infrared Experimentation at my Blog.

Tech Info:  T-MAX 400 with dark orange filter (50 mm lens) & SFX-200 with IR 695 filter (42 mm lens). Both Mamiya 7 cameras.  T-Max developed at home (by KellyBlackDog aka my husband) and scanned with our Epson V700; SFX-200 developed and scanned by Old School Photo Lab.

  1. The first shot, the one taken with the Tmax turned out well. As I recall it was a pretty contrasty day and the exposure is nicely balanced between the clouds and the rock.
