Hi everyone and welcome to today’s post. This image, along with many more, was made this past weekend on a shooting excursion to the Lonaconing Silk Mill. The trip was arranged by Tony Sweet and a group of us including my WV shooting pal Mark Muse, made the trek to Lonaconing, Maryland to photograph the old mill. The mill closed down in 1957 and has been abandoned ever since. It is like a time machine inside. Virtually everything from machines, tools, spools, and equipment was left in place and intact. It is three floors of photographic fun. The lighting inside the mill is very diffused and in most cases required multiple exposures to capture the dynamic range of the light.
I found this little stool in the basement and framed it against the beautiful light of the large windows. The image is a blend of four separate exposures, each one processed in Lightroom, and then blended together with Lightroom Enfuse. Each exposure was made 1-stop apart. The resulting file included all the information necessary to capture the full range of light within the space. This was a fantastic shooting trip and I will be posting more images as I process the files.
Thanks for stopping by today.
