The Eye of Photography – L’Oeil de la Photographie

Book reader (San Clemente Beach) 2021 copyright Douglas Stockdale - Always a wonderful way to start the morning when you find that you are being featured in a (virtual) photo magazine, which in my case, is The Eye of Photography (L'Oeil de la Photographie) published in France, for my series of book readers observed reading...

Quiet & Contemplation

I have not posted very much since the clouds and rain rolled into Southern California as I have been experimenting a lot with solar printing and Cyanotype printing. For me at the moment, cloudy days exclude the ability to do some 'quality' solar printing. For the Cyanotype printing, I had hoped to avoid the need... Continue Reading →

Watercolor over Cyanotype – Yellow

One of the aspects of alternative photography when using Cyanotypes is the potential for layering on additional colors using a Gum Bichromate contact printing process. This requires multiple digital negatives, getting these negatives into exact registration when printing each color (and if you don't: Opps!), a lot more chemistry and coating paper in conjunction with...

SoCal Coastal June Gloom

San Clemente pier copyright 2022 Douglas Stockdale – In Southern California we are transitioning from Gray-May to June-Gloom, a time when we have very overcast coastal conditions. Usually a big surprise for those who are visiting from someplace other than Southern California for their big vacation trip after the kids get out of school. Hint: it... Continue Reading →

Blue wave forming for ’22

Anthropogenic Crisis No 6829 (Warming Water) copyright 2022 Douglas Stockdale – Convention wisdom is that with the pending printing and subsequent printing by Singular Images Press of my new artist book that I should be promoting the pre-publication sale to help pay for it. Especially with my trip to San Diego tomorrow for Medium Photo Festival. Like I said,... Continue Reading →

Happy Earth Day!

Anthropogenic Crisis No. 092228 (Warming Water) copyright 2022 Douglas Stockdale – While working on my book review of Rita Leistner's Forest For The Trees, in line with my the realization of the mighty pen as a potential climate change 'influencer', I also need to post my own best wishes for a wonderful and effective Earth Day. Each day we can... Continue Reading →

Subtle Climate Changes

Anthropogenic Crisis No. 130333 (Warming Water) copyright 2022 Douglas Stockdale - One of the aspects of an adverse Climate Change, as it is occurring now, is that what's changing day to day is so subtle as to really not being recognizable. Unless something really dramatic occurs. An example is where I live in Southern California; if I were... Continue Reading →

Anthropogenic Crisis – The Last Iceberg

Anthropogenic Crisis No. 1511 (The Last Iceberg) copyright 2014/2022 Douglas Stockdale – I really enjoy how a project/series can continue to evolve. It is now appearing that Anthropogenic Crisis is morphing into a much larger project and is no longer just a series. I think of a smaller body of work, especially in the early stages of...

San Clemente – Surf-side; take two

San Clemente, Surf-side, copyright Douglas Stockdale 2017 Another take on the San Clemente surfing photograph that I just posted. I had provided myself with an interesting idea about placing more focus on the surfer by eliminating the other surfers in the background. Actually it was pretty easy with the cloning tool on a Duplicate adjustment layer. Done.... Continue Reading →
