Small Creatures Such as We
Small Creatures Such as We

"For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love." Contact -1985 This shot (taken in the middle of New Mexico, on Route 66) took a couple hours to get right. It is a composite shot. One is a very high iso shot to allow for a faster shutter speed of the two of us on top of the rv to reduce the blur from movement. The other is a long shutter speed to capture the moving traffic and the dim stars. Capturing 1 image a minute we caught a glimpse of a shooting star as well.

This image is at Hidden Lake in Montana. The trails to the lake were blocked off due to grizzly sightings. But nothing ventured, nothing gained. So we went around the warning tape enjoyed a few waterfall showers to cool off and begin capturing a few shots. This image in particular is 57 shots stitched into a single image. I used this method for various reasons. For one it allows a very unique view combining the focal lengths of a longer lens with a the field of view of a wide angle lens

I wanted to get a more unique perspective than the hundreds of shots taken each day so we launched our kayak out and braved the salinity! Once we made our way out to the other side of the towers I had to find stability for not only the kayak but a place to drop a tripod down into the water (sometimes down further than 4 feet to find a small amount of limestone). What ensued was a chain of human limbs, kayak oars, tripod and camera delicately balancing within the waves and wind of Mono Lake.

This set of images came from a simple idea of combining landscapes with a faceless subject. Sometimes landscape photos alone don't grab you the way they do when you stand on a mountain and see them for yourself. These shots are more about taking a step back and viewing the moments spent by a subject enjoying a landscape. Including this character in a landscape gives a very real connection for the viewer to enjoy the landscape.
