I am picking up where I left off in my last post (Link to it here!). I wanted to show an example of results from capturing the same subject from different vantage points. I began by taking in the whole gestalt. Then I cropped in camera while moving into and around the subject to change my vantage points. I crept closer with my successive shots. While I have several other images from this session, these three were my favorites.
This subject is the John B. Roberts Dam on Juan Tabo NE. It is a compelling outdoor location with a purpose: is a flood water control structure. From what I have gleaned off the internet, it was used in the acclaimed TV series, Breaking Bad, as a pick-up /drop-off for drug deals. Or something of that ilk. I was not a viewer of the show, so I am mildly amused by the selection, too.
As a location. it offers several dozen large sculptural concrete blocks placed in a grid, along a steeply sloped, West facing hill. It receives the full East-West arc of the sun, with extreme hard light cradling it with shadows. I really enjoy viewing it, and would revisit the spot for a portrait session at another time. The grass and trees in front of it would probably look better, if included in photos, once they had greened up from some monsoon rain.
