The Work Bench

This is image is featured in my current show at the Art Ark, called 'Shadow and Light', I made the image last year in the work shop of my uncle's place in Metchosin on Vancouver Island. The metal chunks and bolts was on his work bench which I thought would make an interesting image, I played around and moved a few of the metal chunks around, just so they would catch the light nicely, the light for the image came from a window off to one side. I also played around with the composition for a bit till I found something that pleased me which is what you see here. I made the image with my 4 x 5 view camera, on a tripod of course with the 120mm lens, ( Tri-x film ) . The print at the gallery is 16 x 20 inches in size and the bolts and metal pieces look quite a bit bigger than they really are.
