Valve 16, Valve 17

Waterbury, Connecticut

Over the past couple of weeks I've been printing from my archive of digital captures made over the past several years. I decided I've been spending too much time with the on-screen presentations and not enough with real prints. Even the process of editing on-screen to select pictures for small proof prints is very different from editing to select pictures for this blog. I find that I'm marking pictures that I didn't select for the blog the first time around, like the one above, from February, 2012.

Studying the little prints might give me a better understanding of what I've been up to with this shooting. I'll use some of the pictures overlooked the first time around for posting here. One thing I notice is how hot and cold the shooting runs. There are months/years where there's a steady stream of successful pictures, but others where almost nothing is working, and others where the success rate is much higher than usual. Don't know what that actually means, but it's pretty interesting.

Snow on the Ground

Litchfield, Connecticut

At White's Memorial last week. A light dusting of snow during a bitter cold overnight.

From the MetroNorth

Westchester County, New York

I usually post very recent pictures here, but this is a little older one from last fall, made on the train to New York to teach a workshop at Penumbra. Over the past week I've been making a lot of small proof prints from my past three years of digital capture work, trying to get away from the trap of nothing but on-screen viewing and editing. This one somehow escaped my attention back in October and didn't make it to the blog, but I really liked it when I found it last week, so here it is, even if only on-screen.
