It can be difficult to shoot a famous place/landmark because so many other people have already shot it. How can you make it different?
Well, one way is HDR. But another way is going old school. Come 2013 photography, old is the new new. This was shot using an old Minolta SLR with a 35mm lens on it onto Kodak Film. I processed the film myself, and then printed this in an actual darkroom. I used Ansel Adams zone printing (a lot of similarities to HDR) to produce this beautiful picture with an exceptional tonal range and crisp deep winter sunset shadows.
Yes, a real camera, real film, and a real darkroom…..crazy…I know.
