Coastal Splendor/Shooting Photo Collages

Tide pools, coves, caves. Great idea for kayak trip from Pt. Arena lighthouse south the Pt. Arena pier — gonna do sometime.

   Again, I’m frustrated by the narrowness of the screen. I’m going to print out 4×5’s when I get home, mount on board (and bring to Louie). The first stitched-together series of stills I ever saw was on the wall of Robert Frank’s home on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Black and whites. Then I discovered the photo collages of David Hockney and bought his book Cameraworks. Such an eye-opener.

   I prefer to shoot with a 50mm or so lens setting, it’s pretty much the way I see the world (as opposed to wider angled lenses, which distort things), then paste them together. (When shooting a building, I keep backing up and adjusting the zoom until it looks through the lens the way appears to my eye.)

    This scene is very similar to parts of the Jurassic coast in Dorset, UK
