Trees, Lakeside, Crater Lake. Black and white photograph

Trees, Lakeside, 1991. Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

The soft, luminous light in this composition of rocks and dead tree stumps at the edge of Crater Lake caught my attention. In order to preserve full shadow detail and avoid blocking of the highlights, I gave the negative (4x5 Tri-X film) substantial exposure and developed it Normal minus one. An unsharp mask was used when making the print, followed by a SCIM mask to bring life into the deep shadow areas. Using a Fog Mask, some local graying of the highlights on the rocks helps diminish any distracting bright areas and give the rocks a more eloquent tonal quality.
