    My grandfather was a barber and I recall his little apartment had a barber’s chair in it. Fond memories.

    Beautiful and complete photo. I appreciate how you bring out every color so vividly yet not losing the photo’s realistic value. It is a story told in a photographic capture, which I enjoy immensely! I would be interested to learn about what camera/lens/settings you used as well as editing techniques.

      Thank you. Now as to the camera settings – Camera is a Sony A7R II, the lens is a 24-240 sony lens. this was a 5 shot HDR bracket at 30 mm, f8, iso 100, aperture priority – starting at -3, -2, -1, 0, +1, combined in Lightroom using Photo merge – HDR. By combining this in Lightroom, I maintain the details as it results in a raw image. I can then do the balance of my processing is in Lightroom to render it with all the detail outside as well as inside and keep it realistic looking.

    There are so many nice textures in here.

  5. Lovely sharp image bringing out the detail, age and colour so well. Thank you for the details of the camera settings and editing. I have not tried HDR yet. One to put in the things to try book. There is so much to learn!

    • Sue Karski says:

      Thank you Trudie. HDR is much easier now that Lightroom has the photo merge function. Before other software gave you only a flattened tif or jpg and you didn’t have the full range of the image.

  6. A step back in time! Love looking at all the old things!
