My Greenfield, Indiana Photography Studio!

I realized the other day that I hadn't taken or posted any images of our new place.  We moved in in May.  As I was standing in my neighbors yard at dusk with my tripod wondering if she was home, I thought about trying out an HDR image.  So I took three shots at three different exposures.  I tried to let Photshop put it together for me, but it didn't go so well.  I did it myself and think the result is kind of cool.

Here is our new home and home of Erica Salmon Photography Studio in Greenfield, IN.

FYI, I pumped up the green in the grass, but it still looks really brown.

During the many steps of creating my HDR image, using various masks and filters, I noticed this shot and thought it was pretty neat:

Here is the inside

This shot was taken at night, but I have some nice windows along two walls if I decide to use natural light.  My husband Jim build me a couple of PVC frames for my reflectors.  My room looked super big before we moved in, but I'm afraid I'm going to be looking for more space . . .

Jim really did a great job on these.  We have vaulted ceilings in this room so it was a challenge.  I felt like I had a real studio when I had my backdrops attached!  This is a great inexpensive system.
