"Glendonfest Fall 2016" was shot on November 5 to 6, 2016. I was visiting a rural music festival located on a mid-nineteenth century farm of 22 acres near Glendon, NC; my second visit to this event and site. Music was staged on the front porch of the vintage home with pastures on both sides. This is Emily Stewart of 'Magpie Thief'
This was shot around 2 p.m EDT facing east onto the porch.
Early in the day, the shade on the porch produced a soft modified light. Her partner was
Matty Sheets....see gallery.
Shot with Canon 7D and Tamron 24-70mm lens.
Details for interested photographers:
ISO 250, lens at 24 mm (equivalent to 38mm in 35mm format).
f/5.6 with shutter at 1/50 sec and hand held.
Lightroom 6 effects: Careful balance of white/black points and high lights and shadows. Contrast adjustment to acquire hair highlight. Color enhancements, some split toning adjustment but otherwise required little more.
