JoDee and I visited Fort Popham in Phippsburg this past week. This old ruin is truly amazing to visit. The interior actually reminded me of the underground catacombs in Fresno, and I thought back to Tolkien’s underground dwarf kingdoms. I wanted to recreate an image I had in my head of a dungeon corridor, but since this wasn’t exactly an underground setting it was necessary to create a small illusion.
I set my camera on a tripod and deliberately underexposed the ambient light. Then I had JoDee take four separate shots while I walked to four different pillars and held a speedlight that the camera triggered wirelessly.
Photoshop was used to stitch all four images together via layering and removing my own presence with the clone stamp tool.
Exposure Data: ISO 100, f/22, 1”
