    Per Volquartz Eastern Sierra Workshop Report

    I banged together a page of photographs and some text about Per's October Eastern Sierra Workshop that happened Oct. 23 - 27. About a 5 minute read with photos. You know the drill. Tell me what you liked or didn't. I may go back in and edit some of the similar shots of Lee Vining creek. A study of different styles from different lenses / formats but perhaps too similar to each other.

    To me, the "Chest Through Window, Bodie" and "Shadow on Granite" seem perhaps to be the 2 strongest.

    Thanks for the followup Jim. I really enjoyed the images (even if they weren't in color ).

    Jim,

    I like the 135 EWA Wolly. I like seeing the trees in the background and the Cooke seemed to give a bit of flare or glare in the image there.

    Definitely one of the nicest places in the world.

    Matt

    Hey Jim!!

    What is very interesting for me is the shot of the desk, which is outlined by the reflection of the buildings and their 'roofline', what is the most interesting part for me about the shot is the old, dusty bottle, sitting on the desk, with its neck broken off, I wonder who last drank from it, and how long it's been sitting there.

    Of all your shoots, and the cameras/lenses you've used, and the effects you've gotten, in the direction your photography has taken you, what about it has made the biggest impression on you, has it been one thing, or a number of things?

    What is the most satisfying thing about shooting the subject matter you've shot, and the way you shot it?

    Ciao

    Yipes! Good questions and no short answers. Of everything I shot on that trip, I wanted to see a good shot of Wilbur. I did 2 and then questioned my sanity. Did I just double expose the first sheet?? Am I that stupid? Well, yes. I then did a 3rd just in case. That's the one I presented. It could be better, but it gets the job done. The rest of the stuff, well, it's tired, isn't it. There's just so much excellent, superb really, scenic stuff that I get half hearted about making more. Mine wouldn't be better and likely not even as good as the rest that's getting made by the bajillions every day. That's why I walked around Bodie with a Pinkham lens. Maybe, just maybe. The shot you picked is the best of the others. It has real potential. I'm drawn to the 3 things done on Wednesday with the antique Conley lens also. That day I was by myself and I didn't do anything until finally in the afternoon I began to see a bit.

    Someone could write a thesis on your first question. The short answer is that some photographs have the power to mesmerize us. And it doesn't have very much or perhaps anything to do with line pairs per mm. I'm just messing around with a whole lot of stuff trying to find out where that power is at. Sometimes I get close, mostly I waste film. Lucky for me the payment is in the journey.
