Construction





Construction subjects have always been a great favorite of mine.  This is the first time I can recall shooting the subject with a box camera.  I'm tempted to go back to the site with a long telephoto to get at the drama of the men working in the steel grid, but I thought the Ansco Panda handled the subject well given its limitations.

This is my first effort with CS2 Photoshop.  It offers a bit more control over tonal values and I think it produces a somewhat richer palette of gray tones than did PS7.

Welcome back. Sounds like your time away from the blog was restorative.

I think an advantage of a box camera at a construction site is that you have to be more in the thick of the action to get the shot, where a telephoto lets you be more a detached observer.
