A note, these images look like digitally post-processed HDR, and though they are definitely digital, I only used methods that I could easily replicate in the traditional darkroom for the exposure. I primarily used the same digital negative at developed at different exposures and laid them over top of each other, showing only the part that I want. I used further burning and dodging techniques. I did do some extra color correction in Photoshop, though surprisingly little. All of these photos are quite dramatic, but these are the kinds of moments that are far in between and I always run to grab my camera to hope to capture it faithfully. I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below and if you are interested in a print of any of these, head over to my print order page.
Storm over barn
Harsh Clouds over Gravel
(yes this sky really was this dramatic in the morning)
