Weekly Black & White Square Photo

The Shed



This is a photo for which I was looking. On my client trips to Garrett Co. this past week, each time I was heading home, I would look for something to photograph. I was looking for older buildings, to create as a B&W image, and one day, coming back by way of Rock Lodge Road, I saw this shed sitting back in the woods. It was exactly what I wanted.

Yeah, I know what you are thinking, but it isn't; it is a shed.

I came back around, stopped, and photographed this from my vehicle. I used a DSLR and an 18 - 105mm lens, ISO was 400 shot at 1/80th of a sec @ f/5.6. In Photoshop Elements, I cropped the photo to a square image and then converted it to a B&W photo. I added a little contrast and burned in some areas and this is the final image.

Even though Garrett Co is the domain of some of my photography friends, I still consider it a part of my world. They cannot keep it all to themselves; it is too nice of a place not to share with the rest of us lower county people :-)

Yeah this, too, is a part of my world and you are welcome to it.
