Shooting An Old Charleston House

Here is a 4 AM project.

The logical thing to do at that hour is pack a bag, a little coffee, and head out for sunrise and early marsh shoots. Today, it was 74 (F) degrees all night, this afternoon around 100(F).

DxO Filmpack software has a few features I wanted to try so I’m staying right here. Most people use NIK SilverEfex for B&W work, I do too. However Filmpack is owned by the same company and has similar tools.

These are from a Charleston 1800’s planters home. The perfect place for B&W.

I guess these are the happy home owners from 200 years ago.

Skimmers, Straight Down The Middle

We spotted this pair of Black Skimmers coming full speed, down the middle, straight for us.

They will change course with no notice, not this time though.

A nice opportunity, and this time I didn’t lose focus.
