|Wind-driven Flotsam. 5x7 view camera, |
pre-flashed Kenthene VC paper negative,
f/5.6 for 2 seconds through yellow filter,
180mm componon-S enlarger lens.
Today has been warm but very breezy. An ideal day to photograph the crud on the the surface of the pond as it blows around.
I dusted off the 5x7 camera; partly for fun and partly so that I could tilt the plane of focus to just touch the surface of the water. With a paper negative, the 2 second exposure needed was ideal to get the floatsam to leave nice 'trails' in the image as it swirled around.
At least the floating crud is food for the tadpoles I suppose.
