Just an Old Truck
A few years ago, on a warm and humid August day, two of my friends and I explored some backroads of the Arkansas Ozarks from sunup to sundown. We photographed landscapes, old buildings, little waterfalls, wildflowers, and more.
It had been parked and left to the elements: there was a sapling tree growing between the bumper and the grill, and grass and wildflowers were growing up around the fenders.
We all made photos. I hurried and took my turn, but later wished I had not hurried so much. However, when I saw Mike’s version, I reconsidered, and opened the file in Lightroom, once again.
Careful cropping, rethinking some color adjustments, highlights, and shadows, and I had a photo that many people have complimented – and I like it, myself.
Tech Data, for those who want to know:
Sony Alpha 77, Sony DT 16-50 f/2.8, zoom set at 18mm, f/22, for 1 second, ISO 200, Manfrotto tripod, and Really Right Stuff ball head
One last note: This same day, after photographing the truck, we found and photographed this old barn as the sun was setting…
but that is a story for another time…
Until next time, wishing you great light and inspiration!
