These were shot mid day, a tough time for light in this cemetery. Most photographs will have glaring bright spots, and deep shaded areas.
For me the hardest to develop is the tall, light colored, grass all around everything. In the sun it takes on a ‘crinkly’ look. It’s worse in black and white.
I try to use a longer telephoto lens here because it makes my life easier. This is a messy place, and I’m not all that comfortable walking and climbing over ‘everybody’ here. The trade off is all the glass in the telephoto helps the crinkle.
Oh yeah, the Spanish Moss can be like Christmas Tree Tinsel before I process the RAW files.
This group of photographs were shot with a Tamron 18-400 mm lens. It’s a decent lens, especially in the middle range. There is no other lens that can allow you to shoot almost macro like closeups of little creepy critters and then turn your head to catch an Osprey go by.
