Morning, /p/

It's time for me to post the beginnings of some new images that I've been working on over the last few months. Still thinking out the direction and building a theme, at this point I'm letting myself photograph whatever I feel works but something is definitely starting to come through.

Almost all of these are quite local to where I live, which might be viewed by many as a cow town that doesn't have any scenery. It's definitely rewarding in a special way to create images close to home. Anyway, here's some of the images.

Trying to use a rather similar color palette, though not exactly the same in all the images. All of these are on Portra 160, as can be seen in the borders.

The landscape around me is changing rapidly with population growth and a ridiculous real estate boom, I would expect that most of this stuff will be gone or surrounded by suburban homes in a decade or two. I can't believe the amount of history and buildings I've seen torn down and replaced in the last few years.

Thanks there's many more to come! I have quite a few to post, and a good bit to scan yet. I shot nearly every day in January and February, already spent well over 100 sheets of Portra this year. Of course, many days I repeat one composition over and over - up to three or four days in a row until I get the light that I wanted. Some days I get lucky on the first try.

This site had a ton of cool opportunities, and it actually surprised me that they were building new silos. Not very often do I see more of this stuff going up.

I lived in the prairies for five years. Although I missed my home, there is a stark beauty to big sky country that you have done well capturing here.

Absolutely, the prairie is all about the skies. It's part of an image that will never look the same twice, and it morphs and moves about in just a few moments. On top of that, any object on the prairie really stands out.

These types of skies happen all the time out here.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, get published dude. There are so many people out there who would love to have this all stuff in print, and honestly it seems like you’re prolific enough to put out regular zines or something.

Saw your stuff in Intrepid btw and it was easily the best in there.

I think the tires and active farming equipment in this one says something more than the others!

Are you familiar with John Sanderson? He did something similar.

How do you access these locations? Do you just walk along the side of the road? Do you ride with someone else who drops you off? Do you pull off to the side of the road? Do you ask farmers for permission?

Selling prints is mostly what I do, but it's face to face as no one wants to buy that stuff online. Now for this series I'm still not sure what I'm actually going to do with the images, but I'm so deep in the creating stage that it doesn't matter that much right now. Glad you saw that Intrepid Zine, love what those guys are doing.

>>3463871
I'm actually not sure I've seen his work before. Sounds somewhat familiar, too bad his website is as slow as molasses for me.

>>3463895
It's definitely important to respect private property, depending on how the local community is. This region has been growing in population at such a rate that farmers heads are spinning and they are rather uptight about people on their land. The majority of this stuff is not far off the road at all. If you see someone they are usually polite, and I'll wave or ask if it's ok if I spend a few minutes there. But don't go just walking into a field, it's rude and someone will come out with a gun.

It's farmland so it's easy to find a place to pull over and just stay near the road. The stuff near railways is just walking around on foot in the old parts of these small towns. They are always empty, particularly at sunrise and sunset.

>>3463920
About 320 megapixels from a 4x5 sheet, of course a lot of that resolution is just actual film grain. I'll dig up a crop later on.

What kind of paper are you printing on? I bought a printer this year. It has given my photography a new dimension. The print is how an image is supposed to be viewed... Currently I'm printing on the canson baryta prestige. It's hella expensive for A2, but it's so damned nice.

I'm using Red River baryta (probably manufactured at the same facility) and it looks amazing. I really love the life that comes out of a baryta print, and when you get it into some direct light it really glows.

Indeed, it's great for black and white as well. I can imagine your images looking great in print. Especially the Portra stuff.
>>
Bravo, OP. Extraordinary work.
>>
Alex, I'm gonna say this in this nicest possible way, I mean no offense--

But, have you ever thought about making the leap from picturesque to art? I know your landscape photos pay the bills and I already know you are better than 99% of shit landscape photographer for using LF and film and using them WELL--but most of your photos are just simply visual candy. You have the technical chops, but I haven't seen anything really interesting from you in the realm of 'art'. Just my two cents, like I said no offense meant, if it's something you're not interested in, it's still totally commendable.
>>
Pretty sure this thread just convinced me to pick up a 5pack of portra 160 next time I stock up
>>
>>3463957
To add on, I guess I can be a little more helpful.

I think you aren't delving deeply into what draws you to these subjects. You mention it is near where you live--good, do what you know. But what is the work saying? It it romanticizing the rural past of these areas? Many of the structures seem dilapidated, but the pink light tries to make give them esteem. It it for nostalgia, is it a comparative study (a la Bernd and Hilla Becher), or something else? You've seemed to move beyond the grand picturesque of nature to include these "ugly" human structures? Why? You mention people purchasing prints, are they drawn to the grain elevator ones as well? What do they like about them enough to purchase and look at over and over (presuming they see similar views in the regular life as well). This is where I think again of childhood, nostalgia, etc--for a rural America, "a simpler time", etc?

I know 4chan is anti fine-art world, and I am too to an extant, but I think critiques are a healthy thing, maybe you could visit a critique group. Obviously not everything they say is going to be helpful ("where's the class/gender/race critique?", etc), but it is useful for examining your work more deeply. Because honestly, I can only see surface level views with this body of work (I know it is preliminary and again, I don't mean any offense.)

Hope this helps...

I certainly see what you mean, but I do feel that this sort of project is a big departure from my normal and sellable "eye candy" shots. It's important to branch out and I trying to create something more personal to me, then eventually I hope that connection can spread to the viewer as well.

Currently this series is far too new to give it labels. I strongly believe that sometimes you just need to create while ideas are forming, if you spend a ton of time planning what the message will be it's possible that you'll never get to the creation stage. That said, it's a careful balance as there's no point to just taking a ton of photos with no meaning.

As it stands now, this started off as a bit of a nostalgia thing. I can't believe the pace at which my local landscape is changing. It's one of the fastest growing regions in the country, which makes this type of photography far different than doing something similar in the American rust belt where things are stagnant and sad. Here there is a sense of urgency, I really never know when a building that has stood for a century will be torn down - it happens all the time. Change is part of the human progress, but it will be interesting to compare these images to what it will look like in 20 years. Local character will vanish as modern strip malls and cloned houses that look just like the rest of America pop up.

I certainly agree

>I can't believe the pace at which my local landscape is changing. It's one of the fastest growing regions in the country, which makes this type of photography far different than doing something similar in the American rust belt where things are stagnant and sad.
where are these photos taken at?

Its an interesting angle. To me, a lot of these structures DO look like the whole of rural America, so much so that the place it hard to pin down. I understand the nostalgia, but it seem curious to me to romanticize heavy machinery, something traditionally thought of as ugly. With the photograph of the farmhouse >>3463846 I can see the angle of "old ways left behind". Could be interesting to document these spaces over time and the urban sprawl slowly taking over. Anyways, like you said, it doesn't matter too much at this stage what the "concept" is, but it's just something to keep in mind, I guess. Picturesque photographers often stop at "It's beautiful, so its good", often leaving things wanting.

Check out Arnd Dewald's photos of the urban development in Shanghai, pretty interesting:

I'm working on these mostly in the Front Range of Colorado. I like where your head is at and certainly appreciate the conversation and thoughts. There's plenty of landscape photographers who just shoot for pretty, and while the work is marketable (which honestly surprises me that it still is), it doesn't really add anything whatsoever to the growth of photography as a concept.

Interesting set you linked. Surprisingly enough, there's a ton of people doing almost that exact same thing in Shanghai. I even had a guy send me some 4x5s for drum scanning that he shot that were of the same concept. That idea is actually getting worn out which is why I've been working without any direct inspiration for these.

I also have a few that I've done at night or twilight. While some of these might not fit in all that well, it's still be fun to experiment. Getting out so often to shoot means that I've been looking at stuff a bit differently.

>That idea is actually getting worn out which is why I've been working without any direct inspiration for these.
yeah, I can definitely see that. That is the pitfall of being so connected these days (though humans are always similarly influenced by those around you): we all consume the same things, and therefore are all inspired by the same things, so it follows what we create will be similar. Some of the projects (all of the projects) I'm personally working on "have been done before", and sometimes I get discouraged, but I just remember "it's not who did it first, its who does it best". Its helpful to remember

Anyways cheers, I look forward to following your work and seeing it develop

Absolutely. At some point I find it rather discouraging to spend a lot of time looking at other portfolios. I know, people always want to know "who my biggest inspiration" was for everything - but honestly I'd rather just go create something without spending all day looking at people for inspiration. And hey, that way you won't really know if you end up doing something that's practically a copy of someone else's work.

>>3464443
Hey Jared, I hope everything is going well out your way. Glad you've been enjoying the series. It's somewhat like the rust-belt stuff you guys have out your way, but way less industrial with a wildly different landscape.

>>3464473
Thanks. Never seen that one, I'll have to check it out.

Here's some glow during a snowstorm. Makes a special sort of light at night.

>>3463799
This one is one of my favorites, just because I'm sucker for power poles, and the way you used them to frame that structure to keep in line with your theme. The winding road is also a great touch.

>>3463811

These definitely have an air of scenes you take for granted. I can imagine myself seeing this stuff every day, wanting to shoot it but thinking I'll go back another day, only to kick myself when the structures get torn down.

>>3464509
Bretty nice.

I'm not sure I'd lump these squarely with New Topographics. After all, Photographs of a Man Altered Landscape was technically a showing of specific works from specific photographers, not truly a genre. I only hesitate to stick them there because I feel like that limits the scope, message or potential too much. I like that you're just shooting "from the heart" at the moment, as that's basically all I ever do myself.

You hit the nail on the head here. I've driven and biked by too many scenes that have now vanished and I've kicked myself in the butt too many times for not shooting then when they were around. Really taking action now and it's been a lot of fun.

The winter scene you quoted had a touch of fog in the air that was lingering and quickly dissipating.

I get you're keeping a particular palette going...but I wonder if this series would be stronger with more diverse conditions. Storm season is right around the corner and some of these scenes would be so sick with black clouds and supercell vibes
>>
>>3463967
I think I can understand that since this is a series in the very beginning stages and is a departure from your usual work, these photos aren't supposed to especially significant. If you keep working at it for a long time, maybe these photos can be used in the "final work", but maybe in conjunction with different photos that shed light on what seem to be, right now, very ordinary and simple photos. To me right now, it's somewhat reminiscent of the Bechers.

But I also think that it might be worth it to explore these spots more deeply and find those little details that really speak to the change that is happening. These photos just feel too far removed from their contexts, so they end up feeling too much like the same thing. Really, there isn't much that suggests change other than the occasional presence of modern technology. I'm a fan of subtlety but most of these are maybe vaguely suggestive of change.

>>3463799
This to me is strongest because of the powerlines. Besides their obvious status as symbols of development, they have a style which adds a dark twist to the image's mood.

>>3463804
The closed door and relatively clean grounds suggest a long period of inactivity, or light use, like it's almost "too quiet". But maybe that's just how it normally is and there is no reason for it to be otherwise? I don't know, but it makes me curious.

>>3463805
The crossing here is also suggestive of new development. It's very neat and modernized.

>>3463846
I really love the quietude of this one, and also the abandoned house being suggestive of the possible fate of the farm buildings. But it does feel over done.

At this point no options (such as storm light) are excluded.

>>3464711
I appreciate the feedback. Not entirely sure yet if change will indeed be the theme, and change itself may take years to document. I'm ok with that too.

Spending a lot more time driving around the prairie this winter has meant I've been able to see a lot of really incredible mornings, particularly a lot with hoarfrost. Some of these next ones are just things I've seen while wandering around.

Glad to hear you're enjoying these. That's one of the big reasons I use large format, a lot of the differences are subtle.

Again, thanks for the feedback.

Here's another unrelated recent image from a frosty morning. I have about 8 more sheets that I just developed yesterday and want to scan, but I wasn't able to find time to get the drum scanner going today as I have to leave for three weeks of art shows in the morning. There's a couple more on the laptop that I'll invert on the road.

>>3463846
Fits very well again, maybe also due to grass resulting in a varying pattern of glow or highlights in the foreground.

I guess I'm missing contrast especially. Maybe when no element gives indication of fog or haze. Maybe when the foregrounds don't show stronger shadows and lights compared to their respective background
>>
Hey Alex, what time of day were these taken? Like, how many minutes before sunrise? Do you use some sun position calculator or do you just stand in the same spot for half an hour until you eyeball it’s the right conditions?
>>
>>3467806
It's not an exact time before sunrise or after sunset, but more so that I just shoot when the skies have these delightful colors. Every morning seems to be a bit different depending on what atmospheric conditions are going on to the east, but generally it seems to be somewhere from about 15 minutes before sunrise up until actual sunrise time.

There's really no need for any position calculators. All of the county roads in my area run exact north south and east west. You can notice that the east sides of buildings start to glow well before sunrise, about 45 minutes if the eastern horizon is clear. So long as one face of the building is glowing like that it will usually make for interesting light, and this gives me a huge arc in the directions that I can photograph during sunrise. I can be looking in any direction from SSW to NNW and have the pleasant pink skies, glowing buildings, and even the earth's shadow rather often. I have not been shooting even slightly towards the sun for any of these as I like the soft light that happens in the other direction.

>>3466121
Sounds like you prefer a more solid contrast punch, which I could see being the preference for many people. I'm generally using the film base as a black point for these, which makes for very roomy shadows in the actual image. Probably not everyone's taste.
>>
>>3463796

>>3467854
Thanks for the detailed reply mate. I'm getting a Bronica and wanted to shoot the cookie cutter communal housing area where I live on Portra, and I'll try to go for the same delicate colors you're doing. I hoped for a mathematical answer, like "when the sun is exactly 4 degrees under the horizon", but I guess I'll just do it with the tried and true method of being there and waiting for the right conditions.

from your two posts you dont seem to know what path youre expecting alex to go. you want his stuff to look like youre heros stuff, but why? why you want that, as they are these pics talk to him, maybe not to you, but why should they. you want them to be more pretentious, to narrate you something, to align with whatever trendy shit is out there right now in "fine art". god forbid someone just listens to himself when making pics and not the MOMA aproved trends.

with all that, i think his stuff needs more teeth and maybe risk, but that might need a different person taking the pics.

His compositions are good, but you guys really underestimate or simply seem not to account the importance of the drum scanning here. Scan these with a "standard" V800 and you won't be as much as impressed, especially given the fact they are negatives. What he is doing is scanning them full-frame and setting the black point on the film border, giving him the perfect starting point when inverting. From there, 90% of the work is done. This is something you can't do with prosumer flatbed scanners, to begin with. Even if scanning fullframe by laying the film right onto the flatbed and somehow avoiding newton rings or use ANR glass with wet mounting, you are light years behind what his Tango can achieve. All of this is coming from personal experience. (I shoot LF too)
The most common misconception, from my point of view and tests, is that a drum scan is only useful/needed when printing and going large with it. It is not. If you take a good flatbed scan at, say, 2400 or 3200dpi and then a drum scan (especially from a Heidelberg, ICG, Dainippon or equivalent high end machinery), then you resize them without sharpening to 1000px on the longest side like you do here, you will notice a serious difference. Not only in tonality and color transition, but in actual perceived sharpness. Even when applying the most elaborate and proper sharpening to the full resolution flatbed scan and resizing down, you won't get the same definition you eyes can spot.
Over the years I noticed that when dealing with such high resolution scans and the need to create smaller versions for the web, my eyes are more pleased if the resampling used is Bicubic Smoother. Sounds counterintuitive, but it actually renders a more natural imagine without losing perceived sharpness.
>>
Lovely photos, man. Is that pink hue just how your skies are a lot of the time or have you pushed them that way digitally?
>>

Bicubic sharpener is from the age when you were downsamping from 2000 to 500 at a side. It gives harsh, overshapened look on very large resolutions. Even if you like sharp images, you'll get better results by just sharpening the smaller file again.

Those things took years to find out. Meeting the people is mostly done through outdoor art shows, of which I am participating in one this week and next week in Oklahoma City then Dallas. Pricing is a calculation based off of my cost, times a factor to reach wholesale, then multiplied by another factor to reach retail value. There is also heavy weight put on the price of the image itself and less on the presentation (framing, etc) of the image.

Glad you guys are enjoying these, appreciate it.

Yeah you'll start to see how it happens once you get out there an experiment. Chances are that wherever you live will have different atmospheric conditions as well that should result in a unique color palette.

>>3468661
Nah, I'm an anti-social /p/ poster. People scare me. Just kidding, but honestly people haven't interested me much as far as photography goes so far.

>>3468745
Thanks, anon.

Drum scans definitely help explore the nearly infinite tones available in color negative film. Though I always felt that the silly Epson Scan software did a decent job at converting negs if you played with it a tad. I think the years I spent with that basic software and the results in provided were a good starting point in learning where I wanted to see the colors go once the film was drum scanned.

We get insane sunrises and sunsets here. In fact I would say that for the majority of these, Portra has actually made them look less colorful than they did to the eye.

have a bump for your great thread alex <3

This is what I still don’t understand about LF. I get that movements are useful for combatting the ridiculous DOF, but what is it about them that actually creates unique perspective effects? How is rise or swing different to tilting the camera up in terms of what you can achieve? I’m putting together a 4x5 kit and really want to understand this.

Nice, OP

Thank you based anon for explaining this to me, I understand it now though it still seems like sorcery that it works. So if you shifted your front standard downwards you would exaggerate keystoning and make things look pointier?

I’d love to see a side-by-side comparison of the same frame with the geometrical effects of different movements.
>>
>>3463967
I agree. This is the first set the subset of which I wouldn't be surprised to see in a gallery in NYC or somewhere, whereas the previous ones were more of a gallery in a NP visitor's center. Technically perfect but somehow lacking a connection to reality.

Back home after three weeks on the road, ready to get some more scanning and shooting done in the coming weeks. Here's another one.

>alex is an attention whore
Why, because he posts his work and isn't ashamed or hindered aka overly-humble in any way?

This crabs-in-a-bucket shit anon has going on is real cancer lately.

Alex doesn't respond to cancerous trolls, dummy

>anyone who stands out by posting in their own thread with a consistent body of work is an attention whore
So I see it now. The real reason people bitch about IG is the simple fact that people both to interact and put a name and face to their work on there, unlike this shithole.
>>
>>3480495
calm down Alex

Alex do you have anymore dawn shots?
And which do you prefer, dawn or dusk?
From my limited understanding: their cycles both go from blue to golden, but I feel like the magenta/golden colors of dusk are more intense, while dawn is primarily about blue. Maybe the emotional state in late afternoon influences my perception somehow.

Maybe you overthink things because you're an autistic cringelord.

He could be right, though. It can be a good thing to question the way emotions and light play with eachother, and how they influence photographs.

I try to go off the sunrise colors that I remember, but with negative film there's no great way to get an exact inversion so I invert the colors manually. Most of these have less color saturation than the actual sunrise did because it's Portra.

>>3480625
I'm definitely out shooting more often in the morning, I love getting up in the wee hours of the morning and accomplishing something before the sun is even up. That and we tend to get better sunrises than sunsets here as there are often clear skies to the east over the distant plains but clouds moving in over the mountains to my west. The mountains create afternoon convection which often results in sunsets being blocked out. However, when a sunset does happen it's usually pretty awesome!

I think sunrises are a bit more magenta, where sunsets seem to be more warm hued and almost red/orange. That can vary greatly by location as well, but you can figure that sunrise has lower air temperature and higher humidity which I'm sure plays a factor in how sunlight is refracted.

As far as an emotion connection, that's probably personal for everyone. I love the mornings and have much more energy at that time of day.

Here's another new one, but this is actually sunset light.

One more question: having used both velvia and portra for dawn/dusk, how would you compare them (like how the colors shift differently, how contrast affects the moods of your images)? And which do you prefer, setting aside portra's convenience of exposure?
>>
>>3480630

Either way, can we see a portrait from your camera sometime Alex senpai? Or even an urban landscape! I want to see what you do in other genres.
