Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, Jul 8, 2020.

  1. You are invited to upload one or more of your landscape photos and, if you’d like, to accompany your image with some commentary: challenges you faced in making the image? your intent for the image? settings? post-processing decisions? why you did what you did? the place and time? or an aspect you’d like feedback on? And please feel free to ask questions of others who have posted images or to join the discussion. If you don’t feel like using words, that’s OK too—unaccompanied images (or unaccompanied words, for that matter) are also very much welcomed. As for the technicalities, the usual forum guidelines apply: files < 1 MB; image size <1000 px maximum dimension.

    From a canoe trip on the Desolation Canyon-Gray Canyon section of the Green River in Utah. I was using an inexpensive waterproof point-and-shoot on this trip, which turned out to be wise—it didn’t survive the fierce sandstorm we encountered near the end of the trip even though it remained in its case during the entire storm. Blowing sand doesn't appear to adhere to the norms of Newtonian physics.

  2. I like the result Leslie. What kind of camera?

  3. Leslie, that P&S did a fine job, but you did the real work.

  5. This was back before I made the leap to digital, and I no longer have the cameras. It was probably an Olympus Stylus--actually water-resistant instead of waterproof. I think it was only good to a couple of meters; as a kayaker, if I went deeper than that I was in serious trouble anyway. But at that time I also had what was probably a little Fujifilm waterproof camera (I carried two cameras to get around the how-to-change-film-in-the-middle-of-a-river problem). In either case, I was using Fuji Superia 400 film. My current digital waterproof P&S camera is a Fujifilm FinePix XP70. I haven't used it much yet, but so far I've been happy with it. My all-time-favorite waterproof was my Nikonos V--a camera that has the serious potential for luring me back to film...

  8. In keeping with point & shoots, in the predigital days I used Kodak one-time use underwater cameras that were actually ok (with 3x5 machine prints) if you stayed relatively close to the surface. This is from one of them, the scanning certainly doesn't help. Maybe it's sentimental, but I kind of like the feel of it. After I got into diving, I considered a Nikonos or an underwater camera housing for the Nikomat FTn that I was using at the time, but never got that far. ScannedImage1xr.jpg

  13. Jon, this image reminds me of some images by a Miami Beach, Florida photographer; they were shot in the late 60s & early 70s. Well done!
