Whoa! The smoky eruption that’s beyond foam… So much energy Ben. I can feel my monitor rumbling and vibrating. Want to cover my ears. And the palette’s channeled the landscape masters of the 18th century as they lugged their huge canvases along the American frontier.
The exposure on this one was a bit more difficult than the others because the foam was so white. In the end I had to undercrank the f stop 4 stops, reviewing and rephotographing the shot many times. Once I have the exposure right, I continue to take many more shots of the same thing, to increase my chances of capturing the x factor- in this case the curling wisps of foam. Reality is a bit “greyer” than this- I’ve cross processed it a bit, because this is conceptual how I remember creeks as a child building dams in the creek, and it gives it that 19th century painter’s palette, reminicient of visits to the art gallery.
The speed is 1/8 sec to get this specific textural effect……but the speed of the exposure needs to be adjusted by trial and error at the start because its related to the water flow speed. Don’t try this with film: I took 700 shots during this excursion.
Very nice capture
