I have photographed these trucks more times than I can count but, this time, I challenged myself to create different compositions by going there with just one camera body and one lens: a Nikon D90 converted to 650nm infrared and a LensBaby Composer Pro with Sweet 35 Optic.
But I consoled myself with the knowledge that this was a positive, a sign I was out of my comfort zone and that, therefore, I was learning something new.
For each image, I tried to pick a particular area in the image to place the very limited in-focus spot of the LensBaby (the “E. P. Martin, Lumber” inscription on the door of the first truck; the “_ORD” name plate on the second, including the missing “F”).
I found this worked quite well when the subject of the image was just one truck and there was clear lettering to focus on. It worked less well, though, when there were two trucks in the composition, as in the third image.
