The article's subtitle says 'A Fun Adventure In Southern California With Charles Cramer'. It's actually Northern California, at least, Pigeon Point, Pebble Beach and Big Basin are all in NorCal. Maybe Pebble Beach (in Carmel) is the northern end of the Central Coast, but not the Pebble Beach in the series which is another beach on the San Mateo coast.

These series with Neil and Cramer are the justification for the paid subscription.

BTW I will be placing the series in the Video section of the website once we publish a few more of the videos.

These will be grouped into four sections:

  • Seeing & Shooting - with the four videos published today
  • History & Equipment - which will have a 'bio' and where we look at various pieces of equipment
  • Post Production Techniques - where Charlie explores some of the techniques he uses prior to printing
  • The Prints - this will really be the heart of the series in which we watch Charlie print various iterations of shots to get to a final print that is up to Cramer Standards!

Sorry, I was a bit directionally challenged.

Thanks for this.  It looked like a lot of fun!  I'll have to try that card technique for isolating a scene during previz.

It was great to see Charlie at work. In 2000, I spent three days with Charlie and Bill Atkinson at the Ansel Adams Studio in Yosemite. We spent most of the time talking about color theory, and Bill's stories about the pioneer days at Apple. Charlie was always very kind and patient, working with all of us to bring out the best print we could make. Although it was quite a surprise to see Charlie with a digital camera! I look forward to hopefully taking another class with him.

Congratulations on a great series of videos. They are very informative!

In the videos, Kevin referred to Charlie's love of shooting trees. Unlike other landscape photographers that go for the wide-angle, I tend to think of Charlie's landscapes as "intimate landscapes". While they may not be as jaw-dropping as some I've seen, I find the intimacy much more appealing.

I enjoyed these four videos and am very much looking forward to seeing the others when they are ready.  I find it pleasurable and informative  seeing excellent photographers out in the field - what equipment they use and how they use it, how they approach selecting and framing a subject, etc.

I got a kick out of seeing the framing card used by Charlie.  When I shot large format I often used a commercially made card that had a printed scale on a cloth measuring-type tape that showed the lens focal length (frame the subject and then note where the thumb fell on the measuring cloth tape, with thumb up near the eye, and you'd have your approx focal length for the shot; different scales for 4x5, 8x10, and even 5x7 with a different card due to the aspect ratio difference). It did help and save time and effort dealing with the cumbersome view camera set up.  I don't need it now, as I'm doing small format digital with just a couple of different focal length lenses, but there are times when it could come it handy.

As a bonus it would be cool to see (or just hear) Charlie play some piano pieces, being a music lover myself. Maybe as background music to part of a forthcoming video. Music to photograph and post-process by  :-)

These videos are great, thank you guys for doing them! That's the kind of content this site was missing after the original LLVJs' production stopped. Really looking forward to seeing more of these.

Really enjoyed the video and I'm looking forward to the next installments.  Charlie should consider adding the 120mm macro for his Pentax.

I gasped when I saw the location of the first film. Photography has always been this quiet meditative exercise that I usually do alone.  However, in the next few monthes I will take 21 screaming 9-12 year olds to the Pigeon Point Lighthouse for two nights to learn about the ocean!  It is the most wonderful aspect of my profession as a teacher to see my kids eye's light up coming from the mountains.  By the way Kevin and Chris you did an excellent job.  This photo from the same beach I took years ago using a Mamiya c220 and Velvia.
