Thank you

Behind The Lens

Location
This was a part of restored gas station on old Route 66 on Commerce Oklahoma. It stands as a non working tribute to days gone by.
Time
This I think is best shot in bright afternoon sun. Bringing out the suttle tones of the patena.
Lighting
As I stated before the lighting should be bright. The meriad of tones is lost in subdued light.
Equipment
This was shot with a Canon T6s and a 18-135mm usm .
Inspiration
I love the old mechanical things especially when they are in their untouched condition. This one just begged for a picture.
Editing
Very little post work on this, First off I very rarely crop, in 99% of my photos they are as I shot them. I darkend the exposure slightly to bring out the tones
In my camera bag
Since this shot I have switched to a Fuji xt-2. With an 18-135 xf, a 12mm f2 and a 35mm f1.8 as prime. Better exposure control over mirror cameras plus I love Fuji glass.
Feedback
There's always something to capture, no matter where you are. The simplest things can be a wonderful creation we just have to stop and look. Now retired I was a professional photographer for 20yrs, I knew what my shots were going to look like before I hit the shutter. You just have to "see"
