The Final Walk

My final walk in WV before heading home.  I mixed it up a bit and did some color and some black and white along with my usual medium format crop.  You get too see my house mates for the last 4 days as well. The first image of the lantern was a challenge because the camera read the light incorrectly because of the screen behind it. So I had to underexpose the image on purpose to get the light correct on it. Real photography tip besides mashing the shutter button, light meters lie.

  1. Lots of great photos here. “Broken wheel” and “faded light” must be my favourites in this post!

    • You keep picking images I have shot so many times to finally get one right. 🙂 Like the bench they both drove me nuts and I shot them multiple times until I finally got one I liked. That lantern alone for that image was shot 6 or 7 times. I had to keep under-exposing it to get it right because the light meter was having fits with the screen behind it. I was too lazy to just bracket the camera. Easier to just change the shutter speed.

    • Most of that stuff is just on my parents property in West Virginia. They love to rummage through antique shops and they found lots of treasures. It wasn’t until I held a camera in my hands that I found sometime interesting about them. Strange how looking through a viewfinder gives a new perspective.
