Are You From the Sea or From the Mountain?

In some cases, we can't decide what image to capture. In my case, I can't choose between the sea and the mountains. If you are undecided like me and still don't know what you like better, this tipster is for you!

Often, when we walk through our favorite landscapes, we think that we’re taking photographs of the same stuff and the photographs will come out equal. To prevent thinking like this, there’s no better solution than ti accumulate pictures from vegetation and trees in the same reel and shooting again using the same reel in another scene, this time the chosen area was the sea.

The process is quite easy, in this case I used a c41 color reel, 200 asa and was converted in a redscale. The process, as many of you know, just consists of turning the reel and exposing the other part from this. Once the reel was prepared, the process consisted on taking photographs of the mountain, in this case at the Montseny — pictures of trees, leaves, vegatation and plants. When it was completed, the pictures revealed the beauty of the subjects.

I still don’t know if I like the sea or the mountain more. Which one do you like more?

    Too hard to pick! I grew up in the mountains but now live by the sea. Equally as spectacular to shoot. If I were forced to choose I'd pick mountains as that's where I do my favourite outdoors activities :)
