WIRR 2021, March Week 4

Scroll down to content

A few days after the storm, I wandered the back yard with my camera, shooting snow covered branches. On this particular shot, the depth of field was limited, with some branches solid and others ghostly and dreamlike. This became my favorite image of the week

Branches

Fujifilm X-T2, Fujinon XF 18-55 f/2.8-4 R LM OIS at 55 mm, f/4.5 at 1/1400, ISO 200

Digital Darkroom. There was no question that this would be anything but black and white, so a conversion was where I started. I increased contrast and clarity to darken the branches and lighten the snowy background. I finished by boosting exposure almost two stops, restoring the background to the proper shade of white (the whites fooled the exposure meter, and it was underexposed in-camera).

WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh. This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
