A couple of weeks ago, I was out on a shoot when I spotted this old shack. I have a fascination with old buildings in general, but dilapidated shacks seemed to have a photographic appeal. I especially like them in a sepia format as that gives the picture a dated and historical look. Today I wanted to share some of those steps starting with the original capture.
From the original, I cropped the frame to have the final product focused on the shack in the center of the picture….
So, we now have the shack more prominent in the photo, but all of the electrical lines distract from the main goal…old rustic look….
With the electrical lines removed, the look speaks more rural, but I think I want to crop one last time to pull the shack in better….
So with my final crop done, I like the framing of the shack and now turn the print into a sepia tone print…
The final print looks like a picture taken years ago of an old ranch house abandoned in a very rural area. When in reality, the original picture was just taken two weeks ago and the abandoned farm-house sits a few blocks off a major freeway in a high growth area near Phoenix.
