Survivor – For this week’s assignment, my very first subject choice turned out to be the one I chose to submit for the class. After several different compositions and locations, this is the one I kept coming back to. Once again, it is proving time after time that familiarity with your environment is your friend. I had seen this tree many times. It is right near the lot where I park my car when I go biking. It has always stood out in my eyes because it is the only tree on that grassy field. For now, it has survived the effects of progress and has not been cut to make room for another sports field. Now, since this is an urban park, I had to be very careful to compose my photo such that I would eliminate power lines and other signs of civilization. I am loving the fact that I am paying more attention to things in my viewfinder before I make the photo. I walked around the tree and paid attention to the shadows I wanted and also the things I did not want in the photo. There is no cropping whatsoever in this photo. I used the Basic panel for black and white conversion and overall tone adjustments. I only used four localized masks to even out the skylight and bottom third of the photo. It helped that the sky was cloudless.

My birthday was this week and Hugo purchased a decanter for whiskey. It has beautiful cut glass and I placed this in front of some multi colored handled fabric.

Ricky says:

I took crumbled/wrinkled white tissue paper and placed it under a red lamp that sits on a wooden chest. I did a double exposure in-camera - both panned left and right. I had other images that were more smooth, but this still shows some wrinkles (which I like). I've done these double exposure panned "landscapes" before, but this was a first on a somewhat small scale. I like how the wood gives a sense of a flat field and the gentle mountain peaks under the fiery sky.
