All but the rock triptych was shot on Hp5+ pushed to 1600. The rock series is Pan F. Developed in D-76 at stock times, shot with a Hasselblad 500c and 80mm F/2.8 C.

Connor,

Some fantastic candids from the boat! Wow, not easy to be stealthy with a Hassy, but you done well. My favorite is the fifth one, the sleeping dad with the bored daughter.

Oh, good call. I'll edit the post. Thanks.

As far as candids go, its both easy and not. The WLF makes it incredibly easy to just glance down and compose. But oh my god. The mirror slap is the loudest, most aggressive THWAP I have ever heard. The shot I really wanted was in the forward lounge. The Olympics was playing and it was pretty quiet, but there was a boy asleep on his Dad's shoulder standing right next to me. I had it framed, in focus, and it was so good. I just couldn't press the shutter, as the whole boat probably would have heard it. I turned for a moment and decided to just shoot it, but he was already walking away. I was really bummed.

Connor,

I know the feeling, but sometimes you just have to grit your teeth and hit the shutter. Remember that you will never see these people ever again, so who cares what they think of you.

He who hesitates, loses.

Connor, I like these. the only one that bothers me is the center rock picture....too much of the OOF section. :smile:
True, I kind of agree. But I wanted some variation in composition, rather than three centered pictures of rocks. Maybe a bad choice, I don't know.

Great series Connor. I love the last guy sawin' logs. But I really like the 'Rock Triptych', very creative.:smile:
Thanks!

Exactly. I should have hit it, I regret it now. I always do.

The rocks ... well, rock! I watched a kid of 12 or 13 one time, in Cardiff by the Sea, balancing rocks like this. I asked him why he was doing it, and he shrugged like kids that age do, and said his older brother showed it how to do it, so he guessed it was in his blood.

Cool!

I don't mind the large area of foreground that is out of focus in the center piece. It provides the structure with some scale. A lot of scale!

I like the other triptych too. The 'point - counterpoint - point again' theme is well stated.
