Week 27: Forest at Swan Lake

I spent a week in Montana the middle of June at a B&W Photography/Printing workshop hosted at the Photographer’s Formulary, and led by Nathan McCreery. We focused on shooting and printing B&W film.

We had gotten up just after sunrise to shoot at a nearby location called Swan Lake. After winding through a maze of barely one lane roads, we arrived at the lake, covered in mist. It was a magical morning.

Once the mist had burned off, I took my camera and trekked down a disused train through lush forest and found this scene.


The photograph was made with my B&J 4×5 press camera, 150 mm lens, Ilford Delta Pro 100 film, developed in Ilford DD-X developer and scanned on an Epson V700 flatbed scanner.
