Preserved in Time

This is from the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI and is an old cobbler/shoe maker shop. It’s pretty cool how they’ve been able to preserve everything.

In order to minimize the reflection I stuck my lens against the glass and took the picture. The shop is actually lifesize but I got down low because I wanted to pull in some texture off of the floor.

  1. This is an absolutely fascinating image, what I have seen of HDR has been quite horrible in the often exaggerated effect which I find visually offensive, this image and some of your others make me thing that I should investigate HDR but I wonder how it would work with black and white film? You have increased the browns – makes it look more like the tonality of a painting.

    • Stephen – that is an amazing compliment and I appreciate it greatly! I try very hard to not ‘overdue’ the HDR thing because like you I’ve seen ALOT of very bad HDR on the Internet that gives the technique a bad name. The most important thing I try to do is to make an image look the way that I remember seeing it while I was there.

      From what I’ve seen (others do since I don’t do much B&W) black and white HDR can actually look very good.

      Thank you again for your compliment.
