As a kid in my little hometown my best friend's family had an old chicken barn. We would rummage and explore as kids, but as an adult, I remembered this barn of old cars. I asked him if I could take my camera in and away I went.

Behind The Lens

Location
Growing up in a small northern Arizona town, I knew of a barn that belonged to the family of a friend. When photography became something I liked, I was visiting him and we went back to the old barn to see the cars.
Time
Late afternoon
Lighting
The lighting inside was dark with little light streaming in through the cracks of the exterior planks.
Equipment
My first DSLR was a canon rebel XT. I used the fender of another car to steady the shot.
Inspiration
I love old, rustic things. So it was natural to shoot this old car in the “as found” setting.
Editing
I rediscovered this photo in old files and processed it in Adobe Bridge and Photoshop CC. I tried to keep the natural color as much as possible but add a vintage touch to the processing.
In my camera bag
I generally now shoot with a canon 70D as my primary and a 30D as backup. I have since retired, but kept my XT for nostalgia.
Feedback
Allow the natural light to be the primary source. It can be tough depending on time of day and available light, but try to work angles that highlight the natural state.
