I have been working on the “Transitions” project for about six months. This involved multiple trips to the Swiss alps, sometimes not getting much sleep (or no sleep), in order to capture the moment when the light was just right. One night I stayed in a repurposed ski gondola, perched on the side of a mountain in Brunni, Switzerland.

Leica S3, Summarit-S 70

Phase 1 of the project is complete. The images can be seen at this link

A book will be produced in 2022.

Jesse, your hard work, dedication and amazing ability to capture such images leave me without words. :)

The images are superb and render me almost breathless as I pour over them. Beautiful!

Thank you for sharing. The next time I grumble about getting out of bed at 3am to drive to our neighborhood lake two miles away for a pre-dawn photo session, I will bite my tongue and try to imagine what your Transitions project must have required of you. Wow.:):):)

This lemongrass plant, in a pot on my deck, was whipping around on a windy day. As an old studio photographer, I am used to working methodically, making just a few exposures after fussing over the scene for an hour or more. Not this time. Those blades of grass were moving so quickly that I could just see enough to know there were some beautiful shapes taking place within fractions of seconds. I shot about a dozen images. This one was 1/500 @ f8, Zeiss Sonnar Superachromat CFi 250mm, Phase One IQ-160 back on a Hasselblad 503CW.

The S3 is back from Germany! So instead of a cat, you're getting the roast chamber of an Ikawa Home fluid bed (AKA popcorn popper) roaster. Ok, this and popcorn poppers are both *examples* of fluid bed roasters. The heat comes from hot air rather than, say, from a hot drum, open flame, frying pan, or heat gun. (Don't laugh - the heat gun and dog food bowl coffee roasting is a venerable technique). Anyway, S120/2.5 Macro focused on the vents at the bottom of the roasting chamber.

So much better than a cat...

(I don't know why, but the phrase "from soup to nuts" popped into my head...)

I have to say that my wife loves Soup. A lot. A recent image of an uninterested Soup brought much happiness to our household. :D
