Death Valley 2017: Day 4

Here is my video journal from day four of my winter trip to Death Valley. This was one of those days that I won't forget for a very long time.

Shattered | After my Ebony camera was destroyed on the morning of Day 4, the main canyon was still very windy. I drove to Titus canyon so I could expose some film to help me feel productive. I chose some low hanging fruit -- in this case, a rock wall with some very interesting patterns. I am still learning how to best use the Ritter 8x10 camera, so I needed to find an easy subject. I think the subject and title are very fitting given what happened earlier that morning. ( Fuji Velvia 50 | Ritter 8x10 camera | Fujinon 300C lens | Several second exposure @ f/45 )

Death Valley 2017: Day 3

Here is my video journal from day three of my winter trip to Death Valley.

Last Words | This is the photo I shot on Provia 100 with my 150mm wide angle lens on the evening of Day 3. The title comes from the fact that my camera was destroyed overnight. If a photo is worth a thousand words, these might be the last words spoken by my Ebony RW810.  ( Provia 100F | Nikkor 150mm SW | Lee 3 stop hard edge grad filter | Ebony RW810 | 1 second @ f/45)
