As you may have seen on my website (skipsmithphotography.com), I have tried several different paths with my photography, exploring a variety of techniques and ways of looking. A very accomplished photographer, Mark Vercammen, shared some of his in camera sequences that I found fascinating. They certainly got me to look at things differently and led to some different work.
I hand hold the camera so the photos are not in perfect alignment and overlap or gaps between frames are common. Spaces between frames were left as they were. Final prints are made digitally because they are large. For example Multnomah Falls is a single print 5 feet tall. Mail Boxes was printed the same way but the individual frames can also be mounted on blocks and the piece is presented as a heptatych.
For those that like technical details, the photos here were made using old half 35 mm frame cameras. I used Ilford 3200 film and Rodinal developer to emphasize grain. “Long Things / Tall Things” could easily be assembled in Photoshop, however, I feel a much greater sense of artistic accomplishment by doing it Mark’s way.
