One of my favorite subjects to photograph are old barns. They offer so many opportunities to explore different styles! I frequently travel to Hiawassee Ga, a small town a couple of hours north of Atlanta, and just on the border with North Carolina. And every time I've been there, I pass this old barn. Well, I finally got a chance to stop and get some shots.
I knew from the get-go that it would be a small black and white project. I shot this in RAW, naturally, so I also had the option to keep it all in color. But once I got into the post processing, I couldn't resist the B&W. Since this is my very first barn project, I really didn't have a plan as to how I would shoot, such as angles, light vs shadow and so forth. So I just shot. As it was, I didn't come away with as many shots as I would have wanted. But then again, one can only present a few images of one specific subject before boring a viewer.
I found I really enjoyed this, but more importantly, I came away with many more ideas, not only for this particular barn, but for others I may come across. Next time, I'll have a more planned shoot.

Thanks for visiting and taking some time to read my photo blog. I'm by no means a "pro", nor do I have any interest in "going pro". I'm just another guy with a camera, or two, that's blessed to have a day job that allows me to enjoy photography purely for the fun of it.
My goal with this site is simply to share my passion, and to share what I find along the way. Thanks for looking.
