A Tribute to Arch Cheney, Photographer and Teacher. One Weekend, One Camera, One Lens
Early in 2104 I attended a photography class taught by Arch Cheney. My intent was to push my boundaries beyond my basic knowledge of my camera and photography. During the class, he showed a one year project where photographer Todd Gibstein shot the same area with only one camera and one lens. This idea never left my mind. I decided to take a weekend in the fall while visiting Velingrad, Bulgaria and follow this theme. October 18 and 19 saw weather which was, for the most part cooperative, for photography in the mountains. The camera is Nikon D300S, lens of choice was AF-S VR Micro-Nikko 105mm f/2.8. Day one was handheld only and day 2 I brought a tripod and used it for the majority of the shots. I am very fond of macro photography so the focus of this trip was the tiny worlds hidden in our large world. Please enjoy with the knowledge that it was with the coaching from Arch that this photo journey is possible.
