Golden Rectangle Panorama and Landscape Galleries

Reload Page in Frames Doug Craft Fine Art Home

Every landscape is a great example of an abstract field that is organized according to the laws of fractal geometry. They represent all the geometric themes associated with my work in a natural "there all the time" manner - which is one big reason why I love landscapes. I also think that it is difficult to capture the expansiveness of landscapes with standard frame images - the vistas we see with our eyes usually take in at least 140 of view.  I have also always loved the widescreen presentation in cinema, so it was natural for me to see landscapes in panorama perspective, and to use aspect ratios based on Golden Rectangles. These images of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming, and the California, Florida, and English coasts were taken using medium format and 35-mm film cameras using Fuji Provia 100F slide film, or a Nikon D-70 digital camera.  I used a Pentax 67 6x7 medium format camera with a 45-mm wide-angle lens for most of the square root of 5 panoramas, or a 105-mm "normal" lens for mosaic panoramas. All photographs were shot with aperture priority at f22 or maximum f-stop.  Panoramas are presented in three aspect ratios and other landscapes at the bottom are cropped to Golden Rectangles. All mosaic panoramas were created manually in Photoshop.  Prints of all images are available for sale at various sizes.  Enlargements greater than 21 cm (8.26") height, however, will lose some image sharpness.
