The changeable weather conditions of late has provided a space for me to explore the coast in the early morning light and to I scoping for suitable subjects for some large format photography. In this instance it basically 5x4 colour using the old Linhof Technika IV or the Cambo 5x7 monorail.
I haven't really found much to work with, but this granite formation looking towards King Head and the wilderness lodge is one of the more promising possibilities that I have across.
I haven't been doing much large format photography along the coast for a while --only hand held medium format lately. Hence the specific scoping. Most of what I see in the morning ---eg., seaweed amongst granite rocks--is ephemeral, as it is usually gone by the next morning. It is either washed away by the sea or blow away by the wind.
Nor can I take the 5x4 or 5x7 out and hope that I come suitable seaweed to construct a still-life. It's only now and again that I find seaweed pods washed up on the shore.
It is best to use subjects like granite formation and just wait for an overcast early morning with little wind and soft morning light. The large format then highlights the tonality and colour in the granite.
