My Image for MM19


For this weeks Monochrome Madness on my main blog I thought I might try doing an image of a 100 year old shearing shed that I was allowed to take some photos of recently.  It was a great place to take some photos, and of course it is still being used, so it had all the gear still there.


It was great to get this opportunity and a shed like this is perfect for doing monochrome images with.  Though I thought I would do something a little different as well.  I am trialing some software so I can do some video presentations.  I am working my way through this, so the first video I have done is a little rough.  Still not sure what I am doing.

I have done a small video of how I processed this image.  I have sped it up so it goes really fast, but gives you an idea. I have also put some music to it, so if you are somewhere public, you might want to turn the sound down or off.

Shearing Shed Process for MM19

Hopefully it works and you can see it.  I would really like to be able to do more of these.  I think it is a fun way to show how I work.  The software is quite expensive, so I have to get the money together to get it, so if you enjoy what I do and would like help out, there will be a donate button at the bottom of this post.  It would be lovely if you could help me get the money together to buy this software.

If you haven’t seen Monochrome Madness Week 19 and all the entries, then you will have to wait until tomorrow, but they will all be posted over there.

Please remember, if you have enjoyed this post or learned something new, then please consider supporting me and helping me to continue helping you by making a small donation.

  1. What a great video! I love how you showed your techniques. Thank you for sharing them with us. I love seeing the visual like this rather than reading how to do it. Nicely done!

    1. I know, it really is Jackie, though I think it has been changed a bit, there is some machinery back further where they first did the shearing. Quite amazing though. I really want to go back with a tripod.
      Thank you.
