Beneath the Pier on Film
Another of the three shots I made with film of the Santa Monica Pier when I was taking the photo workshop with Sam Abell.
I would have been very happy with shot, had I not got a better one in digital (here).
It is interesting to compare the two shots which are taken from the same spot with different lens lengths.
The extra width of the digital shot includes more pilings that frame the shot well.
The gull was a bonus, and is just what was needed to complete the shot. See below for a comparable digital shot without the gull.
This film camera (Olympus XA2) has a 35mm/f3.5 lens while the digital shot (Canon 5Dii) was made with a vintage Nikkor-N 24mm/f2.8 lens.
