Old Friends, Paul Mc Keown
My wife and daughter-in-law were walking down the beach in San
Clemente, Ca. They looked like they had been on a long trek, and
were deep in conversation, not having seen one another for several
months. The tire tracks made a good leading line.
Paul used his Canon Elan 7E and Tokina 19-35mm to capture this
image on Fuji Sensia 100. It was scanned using an HP S20 scanner
whereupon it was converted to BW, levels were adjusted and a
border was added.
Donna Eaton, Lily & Rosie
This is Lily & Rosie, my two cats. They were both adopted from
my vet's office which takes in orphaned kittens. Although they are
not related, when they were small they cuddled & comforted
each other a lot. Now that they are 6 months of age their time is
spent rough housing and they seldom cuddle. I happened to catch
them one day in a rare moment of true friendship. I ran to get the
camera and was surprised they were still there when I returned. I
love this photo because it shows how much they are attached to
each other even though they don't like to admit it much
Donna's camera was a Canon PowerShot S50. Levels were adjusted
and the image was slightly sharpened in PhotoShop.
Corrie Zacharias, Buddies
I had been photographing inside the barn, and when I went outside,
I saw these two in the window. No time to change film!
Corrie was shooting with a Nikon F4s and Nikon 105mm f/2.8
using Kodak T-MAX P3200 black and white film. The
resulting image was scanned using a Nikon Coolscan IV.
Photoshop work included spotting, dodging and burning.
