Merewether Surfboard Club, Portraits, 2014.

These portraits are being made to celebrate the club’s 50th anniversary. It is hoped that all members will be photographed in time for the June, 2014 celebrations.

Surfing is inextricably linked to photography. With this series I have referenced both traditional silver based photography, originally made on glass or tin plates, as well as some of the contemporary instagram looks that pay homage to these authentic processes.

looking away...

I made two good pictures today. Actually, it's more accurate to say that I completed them today. I coaxed the light onto the sensor a few days ago but today I finished the pictures.  Just as I once messed around in the darkroom I now mess around in the Lightroom I just make sure to have plenty of information in the raw file so I can push the pixels around without damaging them.

This was a cloudy day with some soft rain in the distance. Very flat light and perfect for the kind of picture making that I really enjoy - it begins in the camera but comes to life on the monitor.

As Ansel Adams said:
'The negative is comparable to the composer's score and the print to its performance. Each performance differs in subtle ways.'
