Treasures in Taber

October 30, 2011

I had the privilege to meet and shoot with photographer Pat Kavanagh “The Kav” ( yesterday. He was kind enough to offer to show me around Taber, Alberta and more specifically, some of his favourite locations for photographing old abandoned vehicles. He certainly has found the mother load in terms of old car and trucks. It was a long day for me (up at 3:30am and back home at 9:30pm) but I did find time today to have a quick look through the images I captured. There are lots of them and I’ll get to them in the coming weeks. In the mean time, here are two images that I pulled and processed with my “Grungy” Lightroom preset. These are not HDR images but single images processed only in Lightroom (radical use of Clarity, Vibrance and Recovery) with one push of a button. I have used this preset (to varying degrees) in many of my abandoned urban landscapes. It certainly has a look that seems to be suitable for things old and left behind. Thanks Pat for a great day and don’t worry, I won’t mention the running shoe incident to anyone 🙂
