Every Day An Adventure

Barn visible off of Longmeadow Road on the parcel south of The Good Shepherd Ministries, Jan. 2, 2010.

As I feel I should, I’m picking up the pace on shooting, in general, and getting out in the surrounding rural landscape, in particular, and following up with greater involvement in tonal iteration and in computer-generated illustration.

I’ve fiddled with the above in color too:

My photographs have a sound architecture and Nikon-driven veracity as regards the representation of the real.  However, one wants to push at the interior seams of the digital envelope, punching up the impact on the way and, sigh, struggling to avoid just that touch too much of magenta.

First Day 2010 – Leitersburg Vicinity

I’ll have to return and check the street signs, but this is certainly farmland at dusk in the Leitersburg vicinity north of Hagerstown, Maryland (Jan. 1, 2010).

Taken at about the same time but in the opposite direction, there are some enjoyable ways of going about a “day into night” transition with a digital file.  So done. 

Among resolutions this year is that to delve more deeply into Photoshop-based retouching and illustration.
