Today Dave & I visited the Danbury Railroad Museum for their Railroad Days. We both love photographing trains, especially the older ones, and of course, rust and peeling paint! So this week’s Sunday Sampler is 3 textures from today’s shoot! Shades of blue – rust, scratches and flaking paint. The “scratched” image has some texture from Topaz Glow. And although we typically like even lighting when photographing textures, the Flaking Paint image shows that bright sun can create interesting shadows as well. Click here to grab this week’s textures.
Here is an HDR image from today as well – 3 bracketed shots processed in Photomatix Pro. I then took it into Photoshop and added Topaz Detail, masking it away from the sky so only the train and ground were affected.
New Gear from Think Tank Photo:
“Think Tank Photo to Release Complete Video Bag Line for ‘Run & Gun’ Assignments and Larger Video Productions
If you are a pro videographer who is tired of having to reassemble your video rigs between locations, Think Tank Photo has just released seven new professional video gear options. In addition to being lighter weight and more features than traditional hard cases, the Video Rig Rollers enable you to hit the ground running by leaving your camera rigs fully assembled between shoots. For traveling videographers, the Video Transport Rollers allow you to carry on the maximum amount of gear on the plane with you.
Finally, designed for everyday use, the three new Video Workhorse shoulder bags are your on-the-go toolbox for professional video. Don’t forget that with my special arrangement with Think Tank you receive a free accessory and free shipping with your orders of all of their gear.
