The Diptych above shares a story from my first trip to Big Bear, California. The photos show the scene of the uncommon upstairs room in the cabin and its high-pitched ceilings, and the view of the towering trees outside. I developed the photo in Lightroom to emphasize the muted tones to reflect the mood of the cabin and the snow covered woods. The simplicity of the photos shows the harmonious and serene feelings of seeing snowfall for the first time. I paired these photos because it were the two photos of the series that I felt really displayed my memories of the trip as a whole.
The following Triptych is a high-contrast black and white series, flowing from one filled frame to another. I felt that developing the photos in black and white gave the series flow and harmony for what could have otherwise been a very busy triptych. It shows the coming and going of finally reaching the mountain top, to see an assemblage of many others who travelled to enjoy the snowfall as well.
