Photo Lab 36 Document

I am playing with Prairie Jill and Miriam. We are working our way through Steve Sonheim’s photography book(Creative-Photography-Lab-Self-Expression-Mixed-Media), lab by lab.

Lab 36 is Document…choosing an activity or person and shadowing them for part of a day.

Not likely I thought, but then I realized I had done this when the tree company was cutting down our damaged poplar tree. So I hit the photo archives from June and put together a series of collages to tell the story. Steve suggested doing this lab in Black and White..but I liked the colour contrasts.

1. The arborist is climbing the tree with all his safety equipment and guide ropes:

2. Cutting off the branches as he climbed higher:

3. Topping the tree:

4. Final inspection by Stewie. A clean yard and a row of trees with a large gap…

An expensive, but interesting day!
