What’s that old saying? “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. I guess that applies to the junk in our barn as well. I used HDR to capture these images. I usually take five frames per scene, and blend them in “Photomatix Pro”. I then re-import them back into “Lightroom” where I do all of my basic adjustments. I then export them to Photoshop where I use a couple of plugins and techniques to get my final image…kinda like when the “Colonel adds his special blend of herbs and spices”. I admire those photographers who can show up with a truckload of lights, and create a beautiful shot, but that’s not me. When I’m on location, I almost always use available light…HDR is a fantastic way to shoot my way and still capture all the detail in both the shadows and highlights. All I know, is my wife loved these shots, even though she hates all the junk in our barn.
