Canning River woodlands mist Perth hand printed 16×20 inch baryta based silver gelatin print -sold.
Canning River woodlands mist Perth Western Australia. The open woodland track near the Greenfield Street bridge follows the banks of the Canning River. In the cooler months the mist gathers in the open fields and becomes dense around the river. On this morning there was a slight breeze and you could see the mist gathering. Standing beneath some flooded gums I pointed my camera back towards Greenfield Bridge, framing an old tree in the foreground. If I remember correctly I used a 300mm lens on my 4×5 field camera. Film was HP5 and the exposure was 10 seconds. I had forgotten to bring my watch so I had to count to 10 to time the exposure. Just to make sure I made a second back up exposure at 1 second using a wider aperture. The first exposure was the better as it had greater depth of field and was a good density. About hand made silver prints.
