PRO 127 Emulation
Eliot Porter (1901-1990)
Mission: Emulate the work of American landscape and nature photographer Eliot Porter.
Considered by many to be the grandfather of color landscape and nature photography, Eliot Porter was among the first to successfully bridge the gap between photography as a fine art and its roots in science and technology. Porter drew inspiration from photographers Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, and Paul Strand. By taking their subjects and mimicking their compositions, Porter earned a remarkable solo exhibition in late 1938 at Stieglitz's renowned gallery An American Place. The show vaulted Porter into the ranks of the leading American photographers. Yet rather than rest on those accolades, Porter almost immediately began a sustained commitment to exploring the expressive potential of color.
Throughout his career Porter remained fascinated by the scientific and ecological underpinnings of his subjects. During the 1950s he set himself to such tasks as photographing new-born spiders or the life cycle of a mosquito. Lichen is reported to be one of his favorite subjects and he sought it out wherever he traveled. Porter explored new ways of presenting the natural world and his artistic and technical contributions to landscape and bird photography transformed these genres.
With regard to bird photography, Porter’s goal was to “raise bird photography above the level of reportage, to transform it into an art.” In an effort to achieve this goal he developed the first stop-action system for photographing birds. The powerful strobes and synchronized shutter release allowed him to capture the delicate details and movements of small, swift birds in sharp focus.
Porter’s work was, and still is, widely published and used as a powerful visual tool for nature conservation. This began in the early 1960s when Porter began making photographic books for the Sierra Club. This effort introduced the concept of the “coffee table” book and earned the Sierra Club an international reputation as a publisher of fine books.
Eliot Porter spent a lifetime capturing the boundless complexities of nature on film and made it look effortless. He once stated: "I believe that intricacy of detail and complexity of subject need not contradict harmony nor an inherent simplicity of the whole."”
“Sometimes you can tell a large story with a tiny subject.”
— Eliot Porter
“You learn to see by practice. It’s just like playing tennis, you get better the more you play. The more you look around at things, the more you see. The more you photograph, the more you realize what can be photographed and what can’t be photographed. You just have to keep doing it.”
— Eliot Porter
There was not one shot that really inspired, but more of the way he took the photos.
Often the shutter speeds were not extremely high, Often the wings were in a blur, but always the birds were in motion.
Often the light was not in the places we currently consider perfect (facing light, warm light) he used back and side lighting often.
he used strobes and triggers to get the motion,, OK I dont do strobes and triggers.
In the month I probably took over 5000 images of birds in many different settings. But going back and looking at his, most often they were landing shots. So I tossed the standard close ups of birds eating things, birds setting or playing in the water and the Eagles soaring.
What it seems he did was to take bird photos from the stationary to the flight and did it without the long lens, high speed shutters we have today.
Natural processed coffee drying
@ Finca Hartmann
There are 3 basic ways to process coffe:
1- Natural, dried with the fruit still on the bean
2- Honey, with some of the mucilage (fruit pulp) removed, and some still on the bean.
3- Washed, with all of the mucilage removed with water and machines.
A lot of African coffees are natural processed, but as you can see they are using the method in Panama as well, according to clients' desires. Like everything else with coffee, the "best" method of processing it is often a matter of opinion. Each method will result in a different flavour profile in the cup. So exactly the same bean, processed 3 different ways, will give you a different tasting coffee. In general, natural process might give you more of an earthy flavour, and honeys would impart a layer of sweetness, where natural washed should be the most clear. And different methods might bring different things out of different coffees.
