During a Stroll through Bodie

BodieDuring a recent stroll through Bodie I was, among other things, trying out a combo of Hipstamatic settings I hadn’t used before: the Hornbecker lens and Uchitel 20 film. The look reminds me of certain old family photos I have from the 1950s, which I like—but the identical stained white border on each image was too repetitive for use in a series, so I changed that in Photoshop. Localized contrast, brightness, and clarity adjustments made in Lightroom.

    This Hipstamatic combo is a great fit for Bodie. I think the first image is the most intriguing, however all are amazing and provide unique views from a place that has been photographed extensively. You might also consider the John S lens and Uchitel 20 film combo which I have used recently and believe would be Bodie worthy.

    Thanks, Rick. I’ll give that a try next time!

    I especially like the one with Parkman’s Washington portrait. It causes me to recognize that Bodie was once a thriving community inhabited by people very much like us, and to reflect on cultural change over time and how easy it is to lose what we take for granted.
