LomoChrome Purple, Sea 2020
The Salish Sea is my favorite place… okay yeah that’s a general statement, but some of the most vivid memories of my youth are of exploring every corner of every island. I love the landscapes, the sea, the rocky shores, the massive rocks breaking through the tall yellow grass, the madrone trees… on and on and on. My roll of Lomography’s LomoChrome Purple was full of so many great shots that I decided to split it into two categories “land” and “sea”. While I was expecting the lush green in the forests to be pretty spectacular, the color shifts at the sea were just as wonderful. The deep blue green of the water shifted to this brilliant turquoise while much of the vegetation turned pink or purple. An added benefit of this landscape is that it’s full of rocks and sun-bleached driftwood that totally washes out in this film. The large beached jellyfish with pops of red really came out striking. The shot of the Turn Point light station really has a nice range of colors as well. I shot all this on my Nikon F100, and much of it I shot at apertures of f8 and at times going all the way up to F22 in order to get as much of the scene in focus as possible, and knowing I’d want to do this I decided to shoot the film at it’s highest ISO rating of 400. In one picture you’ll see me holding a small jellyfish, ordinarily you should never touch them because you will kill them, but this one was beached and already dead, it made for a really interesting picture.
