Her process begins with the capture, and she always shoots in the highest resolution available to her. This image was shot with a Mamiya RZ and 50mm lens on Kodak’s 160 VC medium-format film. (When she has access to a medium-format digital back, she shoots with that instead.) Venables sets up her tripod, then pivots the camera around the room, capturing everything from this vantage point to assemble into a mega-panorama. And she brackets, big time—not only for exposure, so she has access to as much highlight and shadow detail as possible, but she also brackets her focus so that all components, near to far, stay sharp.
