Misunderstood – Isle of Skye, Scotland. Medium format black and white photograph taken with Bronica ETRSI behind the Old Man of Storr
‘Misunderstood’- Isle of Skye, Scotland
This shot was taken on the climb down from a full morning around the back of ‘The Old Man of Storr’ on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. The route we came down was not the usual route which was nice because it presented a few more un-seen compositions like this one. We tried our best to make it down in deep snow which at times was a few feet deep in snowdrifts.
I noticed the light started to hit this rock face behind me and although the path was probably only a foot wide (with a substantial drop off the edge) I just had to set up quickly to capture the scene. I used my Bronica ETRSI medium format film camera and added a red filter in front of the lens to increase contrast and help ‘punch’ those clouds. The result is a beautiful black and white image showing just how jugged the landscape is on the Isle of Skye from a difficult to access viewpoint that is rarely seen.
Film: Fuji Acros 100
Camera: 1980’s Bronica ETRSI with 50mm with red filter.
Exposure: 15th sec at F16.
Location: Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye, Scotland
Print options: I offer two options for my art work to be displayed on walls. Fine Art Giclée Print or a Handmade UV Protected Canvas.
- Fine Art Giclée Print | I use an experienced specialist printer in Yorkshire to print and inspect every print before it leaves his family print workshop. The paper used is Hahnemühle 308gsm Photo Rag, a fine art smooth 100% cotton white paper. Hahnemühle Photo Rag® is one of the world’s most popular papers and the valued all-rounder for high-quality FineArt inkjet printing. The white cotton artist’s paper, with its characteristic, wonderfully soft feel, boasts a lightly defined felt structure, lending each artwork a three-dimensional appearance and impressive pictorial depth.
- Handmade Canvas | I use the same experienced printer for my canvasses. Hand built in his family workshop using 38mm (gallery standard) FSC approved UK pine frames. Using Canon’s award winning imagePROGRAF printers and LUCIA EX 8-colour ink, ensuring high quality colours and resolution prints on 340gsm 100% cotton canvas. The canvas is also UV resistant laminate for ease of gentle cleaning.
- Please note that all prints will have a blank ‘white bleed edge’ around the photo to help with mounting and framing. Canvasses have wrap around edges with no white borders and all ‘part inch’ canvas sizes e.g 21.7 inch will be rounded to the nearest even number inch size e.g 21.7 up to 22 Inch. All canvasses also come with a hanging kit.
- 3 to 5 working days.
Important note: The Graham Binns digital signature watermark will not be on the final product unless requested in the instructions.
