Aiming each week to release at least one brand new print, and at least one "extra treat." Here's this week's bonus.
Yet to Scale. 30"x7.5" fotoflot print
Robin in Lexington, with the 10D and 24mm lens, 1/500th at f/3.2 and ISO 200.
This was from the third day of our four-day shooting marathon in July of 2004. (Will tell that story soon when an exciting new result pops out from our first day's work.)
A draft of this one has been seen at OMP or in my dA webcam over the years, but it wasn't until last year that I finessed it into shape to be a 30" fotoflot print. (In particular, my earlier versions had color profile problems that were a hassle to bring up to date, from back when I knew enough to be dangerous.)
Honestly, I don't take this one too seriously. It feels more one-dimensional to me than I prefer my work, and the pixel clarity isn't there (in her face) for a truly sizable print.
The height is not merely a gimmick, though. There's so much wall filling the original shot that it required all this space to open up the composition. (It's four times taller than wide now, because even three times didn't do the job.) Otherwise, Robin looked all cramped within the limited headroom. And you can see from this print detail that cropping much of the wall is really a loss, compared to the expansive full version.
But anyway, I do like its new title, and hope it has a certain charm.
