I'm sure we have all spent hours removing the big obnoxious power lines from all of our wonderful landscape photos. They seem to creep in to a lot of shots -
Well.... I have been asked by a huge international consulting firm out of the Mid West, to photograph these huge transmission lines and poles. They have agreed to my terms and have even bumped the compensation handsomely !
So, between now and the 1st of April, I will be bumming around the Southern Utah deserts, in 4 wheel drives and ATV's, shooting transmission lines and poles in the middle of no where ! AND to top it off - They want "artistic" shots !
I am thrilled !
These are a few examples, that i am playing with. These were shot just across town. Trying to get a feel....
Anyone have any thoughts ? Any creative angles ? The biggest challenge will be the middle of the day shots, because there are hundreds of miles of line, its not like I can go out for a few hours in the morning and a few hours at dusk. Its the kind of shoot where i will be in the elements all day, climbing up and down the side of rocks and hills to gain the best observation points, sunup to sundown...and once it gets dark, I am thinking of using a 100,000 candle watt spot to shoot in the dark !
Ideas ??? Thoughts ???
