I visited an old friend today. The Red Barn, as I have come to name this place, is a location that I have photographed on many occasions and in all kinds of light. The morning light in the Spring and early part of the Summer is the most dramatic as the rising sun illuminates the south-east face of the barn, arguably and fortuitously, one of the more interesting sides to photograph. At this time of the year the owners allow the fields around the barn to go to seed and the clover and grasses grown to around waist height. The resulting textures create a very strong foreground element and I love how the barn seems to nestle into its footers as the grasses embrace it.
Thanks for stopping by today! RHC
TECHNICAL STUFF: FujiFilm GFX50S and a Fujinon GF23mm f4 R WR. The final file rendering is from 3 images, focus bracketed for increased DOF. These files are aligned and stacked in Photoshop to create the initial starting point. The Black and White conversion and subsequent processing work are accomplished using the Artisan Pro X B+W Panel developed by Joel Tjintjelaar.
