Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment
On The Beach
Our next Picture This! assignment is "On the Beach." While this might evoke images of fun in the sun and sand, we're looking more for images that speak to what happens at the water's edge, where tides wash up and reveal odd configurations (such as these rocks on Torrey Pines Beach north of San Diego, California) or, when looking toward the sea, crashing waves or clouds gathering on the horizon line that make for a powerful image. This photo was made with a Rolleiflex 6cm camera on Kodak Professional Tri-X film, then scanned using a Microtek ArtixScan M1 and worked in Photoshop for contrast correction and enhanced grain.
