Thad Aman : Your Community

Canon 20d
35mm L lens
ISO: 100
shutter: 1/8000s

Retouch: a whole lot > levels, hue and saturation, dodge and burn, stamp, lots of masking, slight blurring, unsharp mask, repeat all of the above a time or two depending on needs, more masking and editing, break for some coffee, work on levels again, etc, etc, etc. Thank you photoshop!!!

For those who don’t know me, I’ve been working for a local utilities company as a freelance graphic artist for the last 9 years. Earlier this week, I was given the opportunity to go out and photograph some Transmission lines for work. Got an early start, but by the time this photo was taken it was about high noon and the sun was bright and the sky hazy (see below: me thanking photoshop). Photographing a transmission line for a “beauty” shot isn’t the easiest thing I’ve ever done, but came across these lines just outside Raleigh and thought it wasn’t going to get any better than this as the weather was becoming uncooperative. A N Y W A Y ,  these power lines represent the community I’ve been apart of for the last 9 years. ie; my community.

  1. nice save! like how the lines and the grass intersect. everything draws you to your subject. you should shoot a bunch more. sell them to every power company in US. and call yourslf Johnny Watts.

  2. woooow. love what you’ve done with the place. if the photo doesn’t turn out how you think it should/could, make it.

  3. The work definitely paid off. I’m amazed at how the clouds really came to life!
