"Herreshoff 14"" was shot on July 10, 2015. I was in East Blue Hill, Maine to join a boat headed south. This was a rural boatyard.....iced over for up to 3 months a year. The boatyard's sheds stored these and other boats. Otherwise only seen in museums.
This shot was in a shed, no flash, just indoor lighting. Dirt floor, plastic liners to keep condensation limited.
Shot with Canon 7D and Tamron 24-70mm lens.
Details for interested photographers:
ISO 1600, lens at 24 mm (equivalent to 38mm in 35mm format).
f/4.5 with shutter at 1/40 sec, hand held and no flash.
Lightroom 6 effects: Careful balance of white/black points and high lights and shadows. Contrast adjustment to capture indoor highlights. Color enhancements, some split toning adjustment. Some local adjustments to bring up wood colors and grain.
