I did this the other day, on Day 17, but this time, I have tried to transform the images so they are all very different. I have the original as it was taken. The only thing changed is how dark or light it is.
This house isn’t new to my blog, I posted it back in June in a post called Away Again. It was taken while I was riding on the back of the motorbike. I would really like to go back and take some photos of it again, when the light is better, and when I have time to actually stop. I love old houses like this. There is something strange about how quickly a house begins to decay after the occupants leave.
I have done some colour burning with this one. I love how dead grass gets some colour when you do this. There is a lot of contrast. Though I’m not sure this technique would work for everything.
Now in black and white. I don’t know, I think I like the second image better. I like the weird colours. I do think both 2 and 3 are better than the first. What would have made this image even better would have been a cloudy sky, and the sun shining on the house. Maybe I will get some images like that next time I go.
I am actually going to Shepparton tomorrow, but won’t be anywhere near this. The state finals for BMX racing are on there tomorrow, and I am going up there to photograph them for Cycling Victoria. Looking forward to doing that. I quite enjoy photographing BMX. If it finishes early enough I might even have time to go out to the old house for some more photos. Maybe.
