In continuation of yesterday’s post, the second image I had pre-visualized was a barn nestled among some dark trees with a figure in some vintage clothing standing in the foreground. I wanted to light the figure for some added effect. Driving in a nearby town I notice this barn or shack, so my wife and I decided to check it out. It was close to what I was wanting to capture. My wife put on this vintage coat and trudged through the slush to the shack. I in the mean while took a few test shots to check out the light and composition. I had not worn proper boots and was wearing a pair of slip ons. In the rush to get out and shoot, as luck would have it, as I carried the light stand and soft box to the shack I realized I was ankle-deep in slush and freezing water. Next my pocket wizards decided they would limit their range so I had to get closer than I wanted as all I had taken with me was the 35 – 100 mm on my GH4. To get the full shot I would have to take two images and stitch them. The final image is composed of two images stitched in Photoshop and then textured.
