Technical Camera Images

One more from my ongoing Crawford Lake project. The first tranche of pictures from this project are here: https://www.robdeloephotography.com/Works/Experiments-in-Engagement/Crawford-Lake

Most of the images in this set are meant to be broadly "understandable", which means fairly straightforward documentary-style. However, I needed to weave in at least one image that isn't so literal. And here it is.

Mamiya N 65mm f/4 @f/5.6 on Arca-Swiss F-Universalis with GFX 100S. Tilt put the plane of focus over the surface of the water. The fish was very obliging and swam into the picture just when the clouds were where I liked them, and the drops of water falling off the overhanging trees made some nice circles.

Very nice - largemouth bass, I think.

What is the silver swirl just below the fish?

Very interesting - the bubble is in the centre of the circular wave that was also created by the fortuitous drip.

It has a twin on the other side of the fish.

Hey Rob, I've been really enjoying your Crawford Lake series. Your eye for detail brings out the hidden beauty of this place, and your photos tell such a rich story. I love how you blend the visual appeal with the fascinating history and science behind the lake. Those abstract shots are particularly stunning - they seem to capture the lake's mysterious layers perfectly.

Thanks Warren. Coming from you, that's high praise!

I would not do well with the kind of photography where you travel long distances to get one chance at something. I need lots of opportunities to get to know a place in different light and weather conditions, to explore nooks and crannies, and to think. This site is 30 minutes by car, which makes it easy to go lots of times. My first trip out to this site left me deflated because it didn't seem to offer much. But I've done this enough now to know that I just need to slow down, come back, and let the place reveal itself to me (which is a fancy way of saying, "Walk less and look more"). Almost all the images I used in those galleries are from the trips after the first one.

Unfortunately, once I'm no longer doing this for work, it will be much harder in sites like this. Because I'm doing this through work, I was able to get a research permit that lets me go off trail. I could only get that permit thanks to my relationship with the people from the organization, but also because I have the university's $5 million commercial general liability insurance policy behind me (a requirement for a research permit). Once I'm just a retired dude, I'll have to stay on the path, so to speak, and that's not where most of the interesting things are!

Earlier this week I traveled to NYC for work. I arrived a day early for some sightseeing. This cityscape captures midtown Manhattan, featuring Hudson Yards. The light was changing rapidly, so I took multiple shots. In this one, the balance between the reflective light on the buildings and the city's illumination seems just right.
