A couple of barns for you today. Yes I know I said I would not be posting for a couple of days but I got a chance to get out yesterday on my lunch break for about 25 minutes. I came across this barn, which I liked and so I captured this image.
Not a lot of angle options with this barn. I did like the way the windmill framed up against the scene so I made a couple of images and continued looking. With only 25 minutes I didn’t expect to find much.
I’ve shot this barn before but I’m not sure I ever posted it. I came across this barn on the way to Green Island. I like the large stone foundation and the finish of the wood.
I’m taking an on-line lesson entitled “Crush The Composition.” The main point of the lesson is when shooting a particular subject one should try many different points of view, such as try to shoot wide, shoot tall, shoot low. In other words shoot lots and lots of pictures to get the one that really expresses the vision you originally had in your mind and the reason you decided to take the image in the first place.
The problem with barns is that they are usually on private property and I’m not always inclined to go up to the farm-house and ask for permission to photograph their barn. Perhaps I should and while there I could ask about the history of the structure. Now there’s a thought.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your Wednesday and be careful.
