Boat in the Predawn Light

I’ve shot this boat before as it sat opposite the sunset. I posted that about two months ago. I have several conditions I’d like to shoot this subject under. Today’s shot was just before dawn under light fog conditions.

Today I was able to shoot under some very heavey fog conditions at our local state park. It was chilly, but the air was considerably dry, so my lenses didn't fog. I was very fortunate.

Camera - Minolta Maxxum 9000
Film - Kodak Tri-X
Shutter Speed - 1/6
Aperture Setting - f-22 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 170-500mm zoom lens @ 500mm
Polarizer Filter
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer

This has the charming grainy look of an antique print about it in that pre-dawn foggy light. Interesting how different this b&w looks from your summer color shot of Aug 1 and it is nice to go back and take the same subject at different times.

This is something I need to explore more - studying the same subject under different conditions. Love the heavy grain here, plus the more narrow dynamic range and b/w is reminiscent of what our own eyes can see in this low light.

Excellent shot, Micki. I like this idea of exploring a subject under different conditions.

It looks like a really old photo! Also, this vessel doesn't look very seaworthy! :-)

I would say it came out very neat!!!



In regards to my post LOL and your comments LOL ( yes I really giggle that much when I'm typing LOL)

MY boys use to be the same way with boxes LOL I still remember the refrigerator box we turned in to a play house for them with swinging doors and windows LOL

Don't tell any one but when my little nephew is over they get right back in to the swing of playing with boxes LOL Just they now can say they are doing it for him LOL

The expression of photography through film medium comes through string in this image more than most of your images that I have viewed Micki. It's a good choice by you to stay with that medium as it compliments you and your expression.
The image gives me the impression of a maritime war image taken by naval reconnaissance teams.

This one gives the feeling to be a very ancient image! Nice shot!

It does have a wartime movie feel. I like the deep toning and old look it has. Good idea to explore the same subject under varied conditions. Nice one!

Beautiful effect...almost like newspaper print. Is it seaworthy? (or lakeworthy even)

Now this is a B&W that I really REALLY like Micki. I thought it might have been from your Holga for a moment. It has that feel to it.

Did you take this when you were just a kid back in 1915 :-) I really like the result whichever century it was shot in.

Awesome shot. I've been thinking about trying to do some fog shots as well, but I need to find some good things around here to shoot IN the fog!
