When I stayed with Bob and Betty Sims in Boise last November, I photographed a piece of wood that came from the historic Minidoka War Relocation Center. Bob received it as a gift from a woman whose family obtained a barrack after the site was closed. This wood piece was left inside and now resides in his home office.
|This picture was made with 120 B&W film on my medium|
format camera. The wood piece In situ, or 'in position'
is located on the top of a bookcase. After the film was
processed, I made a print, then scanned
the print on a flatbed scanner.
|My Canon 5D, a 35mm digital camera, was used|
to photograph the wood piece on a black piece
of fabric. The light source was overhead and
creates flat and even lighting.
|The same camera and black fabric |
background was used in this picture. This
time the camera was placed on a tripod and I
used a long exposure and a small
flashlight to paint with light.
It would be a challenge to come up with 100 views, so here's just three views.
