Salt

On ongoing project at the first rest point whilst bellows are replaced. It concerns salt basins in Morocco, satisfying some of my main thoughts on projects; ones that allow repeat visits, provide a compositional puzzle and also appear to be something fresh or new in aesthetic value. 180mm lens mostly f22-32. T-Max 100. Scanned with a V800. Also the images were taken during strong daylight sunlight hours which usually is a no go but the location and use of B&W allows this possibility.

I like these kind of images and the fact that you had very strong hard lighting and heat must have been challenging and I think you have pulled this off very nice. What was your choice of developer for the T-Max Darren.

Nice set. I find it's important to work that way it brings coherence to work, rather than a series of random images.

Thanks Ian, that's partly one limitation of social media in that single images thrive. For me, that single image means little unless I can access a surrounding set as it reinforces the photographer's vision. I would also place a large emphasis on composition which for me is another definer. Again in the social media domain, often colours, lighting and subject all generate appeal at the expense of composition.
