Shooting Windows

IMG_9670-Edit

The collaboration with Melinda Green Harvey continues. Her co-post for today can be found here .

The shadow in the photo above is Melinda’s and was cast while she was taking the photo below at Jordan River. Jordan River is a very small place beside the road from Victoria to Port Renfrew on the south west edge of Vancouver Island.

Beside the highway are some old buildings from a logging operation that was based here. I have photographed these buildings before and knew that Melinda would like them too. We poked around more than I had done before, and found a derelict house that was open, and you will see photos from inside it tomorrow.

I don’t know if the builder was anticipating flooding but foundations rising to the window sills seems a bit excessive. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. After all they provide nice grain for Melinda’s shadow.

  1. This is turning out to be a great idea – two quite different approaches and both valid and worth viewing. Evidence that we all see differently. Wish I had a buddy over here to experiment with this idea.

    • Hi Andy. I think it might be about the same distance from Lubbock to the UK as it is to British Columbia so perhaps your wish will be answered (ok, I just looked, 7+hrs flying time to me, 12+hrs flying time to you) so quite a difference.

      Maybe you could try other variations from a distance, like sharing a raw file with someone and both of you processing it in your own ways to see how the image gets interpreted. I was thinking it might be fun to do something like that with a small group of photographers to see how the same electronic data are interpreted.

      • Your suggestion has I know been done on-line before with some HDR brackets, but I don’t think it has been done with a single RAW Image. It’s an interesting idea…

      • I’ve seen thos hdr bracket exchanges a while back now. Perhaps that is where the idea came from.

        I’d be game to try even though my post processing skills are a bit rudimentary. And I bet there are others that would like to as well.

        Melinda and I just discovered it takes quite a bit of time just agreeing on the process and organising the details and sharing shortlinks before publication and so on. Probably did not help that we crammed more than a week of posts into an afternoon. Or tried to.
