dwightsworkshop1I am telling you that I could spend days in this place.  An old Chevrolet Dealership built in the 30’s.  The gentleman that owns the building is collecting everything.  This trip I photographed areas and multiple subjects.  This particular shot just reeked Black and White.  An incredible place.  Keep in touch.  Lots more to come!  I am fitting in the blogs between work sessions.  This blog  is being published as I am sitting at Gate 8 in Reno Nevada looking forward to an evening with my beautiful bride and family!

oldandwornoutselfportraitNow the FAT jokes are going to start.  Being the TEAM player that I am my conscience forced me to submit a Self Portrait.  What better than to have an old worn out man photographed amongst a bunch of old worn out fuel dispensers.  Inside this huge old car dealership is a monstrous collection of dispensers and everything else under the sun.  Including a 30’s toilet.  This exposure required the max that HDR can provide.  A full nine stops from “hot to cold” or “black to white” .   The starting exposure as 1.7 under.  How did I shoot a nine exposure HDR and still be in the photo.  Only the photo gods and Dwight will know for sure.  By the way, thanks to Dwight and Teresa for the great adventure and discussion.  Wonderful people doing a wonderful “work”.  Stay tuned the contents of Dwights shop is incredible.  Like I said yesterday – A photographers fun house!

Many times I have photographed this bird.  The Great Blue Heron.  Big, beautiful and difficult to photograph.  It’s a game of who see’s who first.  This was a location near the Tetons in very early spring.  Advantage Jim.  The only landing area was the only thawed pool in the area.  I camped motionless waiting for the landing.  The first few were touch and goes.  A fun afternoon in sub zero weather.
