Cold Shot

So I processed this one to Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Cold Shot, and I was done with it before I’d listened to the song even once.  Seriously, I’m not kiddin’!  How is that possible, some may ask.  It’s possible because I shot this scene with the full intention of exposing this for the barn, and nothing else.  I was willing to let the white areas (except for the snow in the foreground) blow out if need be, but that was not an issue because the dynamic range of light (overcast morning) was not that wide, so one shot was plenty.  I love it when that happens, because it means less time processing and more time out shooting, and I’m all for that!!

So glad to see that the musical accompaniment is back. It’s been a while, and I missed it. Not only do your phenomenal images inspire me, Jacques, but your notes on the music you work by send me back to my own musical archives to listen to music that I have loved but neglected. Thank you.

Sweet shot… That DoF is incredible!

Thanks, fellas! And I’m glad to bring the music back to my posts, and I’ll have you digging through your music archive (or maybe buying more tunes) tomorrow as well!

A picture is nothing without a good tune!

They are one in the same…T-Wiz

Nice work Jacques!
