WARREN CONNECTICUT = This summer we’ve been trying to get up here on Thursday evenings, so here we are on another summer Friday. The light was dull so today’s image is an interior of our construction project – adding a “grandchildren” wing. Not much apparent progress since the last time we shot this. Visually things slow down when the trades (electrical, plumbing and heating) do their jobs.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I was correcting a typo in the original version of the post for this day and for some reason lost it entirely. So here I go to reproduce it. A friend dropped by today in her lovely vintage Nash Metropolitan. Here it is.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I’m experimenting today with HDR – that is using software to combine multiple exposures to achieve expanded tonal range. I hate most HDR images. Many are found in Instagram and other online venues. They usually look badly over-cooked and artificial. My objective is to use this technique to save subtle highlight and shadow detail, and to amp up local contrast, but only slightly. The technique require combining multiple exposures so I’m starting today on a tripod – thus the somewhat academic look to the images. I’ll give hand-held a go tomorrow. Shooting with my Leica Monochrom and 21mm Super-Elmar lens.
