Alley in AM by Jim Hagan

August 2020 - Alley in AM

About the Image(s)

We were in Charleston three years ago and went for a morning walk. As we
passed an alley I liked the view of the backside of buildings - probably
built over a hundred years ago. The cloudy sky provided a wonderful
backdrop and some puddles from an overnight rain added even more interest.
The image was photographed hand held using my Sony infrared converted camera
with a 75mm lens at 1/4000, f 1.8 and ISO at 200. I should have used a
slower shutter speed and shot at perhaps f/8.0. The original image was
converted to mono using a Nik Silver Efex filter.

IR captures strong contrast even in soft visible light.   Posted: 08/01/2020 12:35:14

I love shots like this. Alleys always have interesting stuff going on anyway, but the puddles and sky really make this special. Excellent processing as well.   Posted: 08/09/2020 18:04:20
