Thanks for the link.
Excellent! My class will be watching this tomorrow!
Beautiful video—thanks for posting the link.
Incidentally, what's the camera?
Thank you 'el wacho'.
I watched the video... Now Valerie can't make me watch it again tomarrow in class..... Yea meee.... LOL
Thanks very much for posting this. I'm quite a fan of his work, and this is the only video I've seen of him in action. Very interesting.
There is another video titled, Half Light, which can be bought on eBay. it is only about 10 min. long.
Thanks so much to the OP for posting this video. I have lacked any sort of inspiration since my divorce and this was just what I needed. I love Michael Kenna's work.
Thank you for posting this. While watching him photographing the tree on Kussharo Lake and hearing the birds in the background, I was reminded of the following Japanese Haiku :
The sky darkens
and the sound of a gull
is faintly white.
Thanks again for sharing this.
Very very nice. Thanks for posting this link, i will without doubt watch this several times.
you all should type "michael kenna" on youtube. you will find the half light doco and an interview.
very enjoyable. As much as I like his work, I am a touch frustrated by the constraints of the relatively narrow style, but certainly admire his dedication and deserved success. I would love to visit and think those snowy rolling hills would be the perfect antidote to Kabul. There I am dreaming again...
This question has been asked probably a thousand times, but how on earth does he get those tones in his prints? selective toning? I think the man is probably one of the most talented printers out there.
I agree -- I liked the video a lot but it would have been a lot more interesting (for us Apuggers anyway) to follow him into the darkroom.
Short, sweet and very beautiful, thank you for posting.
Much of this seems to be related to the actual moment of capture. Many, but not all, of his photographs seem to have been taken either in foggy winter, foggy early morning or even full night time conditions. Probably when we are all still fully asleep, and maybe shouldn't be
But it still was extremely nice to see the difference between the actual conditions as displayed in the video of for example that bay filled with small drifting ice fragments and the rock formation on the left, and the final print he made of it.
Excellent video and thanks for sharing.
I think I've watched this no fewer than 7 times so far. It's incredibly absorbing, and really insightful into a master's way of seeing and thinking. And, the filmmaker's work is wonderful as well. Thanks, wacko, for calling attention to this.
no worries jobo!
oops, my bad. Sorry! el wacho (I'm tankful to be jobo, I guess)
Thanks, I love his work, but this is the first time I've seen him in person, I didn't even know that he's a Brit.
I got fascinated with his prints, looking at them in the gallery he shows at here in Portland. I did a bunch of research trying to find out how he gets the subtle color shifts. I have found references that he made with his early work doing a light toning in both Sepia and Selenium.
if your serious about finding out his technique in the darkroom you should read the interviews ( all of them ) on his website. for example, he says that he rarely deviates from tri-x in d76 1:1 11min. happy hunting!
I'll be looking at this again . thanks
found some of his photos online...
