Barn I by Vlarg Barn I by Vlarg
This is an image of a barn that I passed all the time in my hometown. Every time I would make the drive from my house to Ball State University or back, I would see this barn. One day, the storm clouds were rolling in, but the rain hadn't come yet, so I jumped out of my car and started shooting. I want it to be stated for the record that I make no claims to be a photographer...I just very much enjoy taking pictures.

(Please forgive the digital noise, this image was taken at a fairly high ISO for my non-professional camera)

Camera Model: Minolta DiMAGE A2
ISO: 400
F-Stop: F7.1
Exposure time: 1/15 sec

This is a magnificent picture!
I love the striking contrast between the deep red barn and the white/blue sky,
and the texture of the sky looks awesome!

This shot, I think, mimics the sky the best-- the angle at which you shot the barn helps bring an ominous feeling. Its strange... I really like this series. I can't say Ive ever enjoyed a picture of a barn before. :)

Well! I'm flattered and happy that you're enjoying it. This one is my favorite too. It should be noted that the colors were pushed in photoshop, but to me, that's part of digital photography these days.

::Smiles:: Thank you...wow...finally, the noise is useful. The colors were pushed significantly, but certainly not beyond the imagination.

Awesome, I'm not sure if it says this anywhere, but I've transferred to Purdue so I pass your exit on the way home to the Richmond/Centerville area now. (or when I head back to Muncie to visit)

How do you like IUPUI anyway? I considered that before I went to BSU.

I really like IUPUI. It has a great Art School and New Media School. Right now I am in TCEM (which deals nothing with art) (It's a hotel major). I will finish TCEM in one semester and I will be going into New Media. I have a friend in it right now and she told me that they have some of the best teachers for it.
I think itís kind of cool that you are the first person on DA (except for my friends) that I have meet that lives near us. I checked out a lot of your gallery. I like your artwork and your pictures are cool. You must have a nice camera.

Thank you, appreciate your kind words. My camera is a Minolta DiMage A2, all in all, it's one of the best digitals that you can get until you get a true SLR digital. It's main competitor, the Fuji Finepix S7000 (and I guess the S20 these days) actually has significantly better color and sharpness, however, the Minolta has an anti-shake system that allows me to hand hold exposures from anywhere between 1/25 sec and a full second if I rest my elbows on a table. (as opposed to anything less than 1/30 being blurry)

It cost me around 800 when I got it, but I it's down to $659 now. I choose the anti-shake over the quality becauseI can take pictures with the A2 that I'd never even be able to take with the Fuji, and there's always photoshop. :P

Photoshop. True that.
You camera is cool and your pictures come out good. Was your ID picture taken with your camera and is your hair really that blue or is that the great Photoshop.

Yes, it was my camera. If you read up about it, it has pertinent info ragarding the settings and such. Now, was my hair really that blue? Yes and no. Under the noon sun outside, yes, very much so. In the room when it was taken, not as much. It was close, but I did push it a little. Not nearly as much as my eyes were pushed.
