January 11, 2010 Not a Photography Project
This fun car, a 1974 Triumph TR6, has been waiting for 15 years under a tarp in the garage. Restoration has been planned as a retirement project. In the beginning of 2010 I decided it was too fine a toy to leave there any longer. The pictured task involves removing the wood dash which will be replaced with a nifty new one with a deep satiny finish. Whether anything electrical in the car will work again remains to be seen.
Photography is not forgotten, though. This event must be documented. So I set my Nikon D300 on a tripod and used a remote to fire off five exposures in quick succession. The aperture was fixed at f/11 and the shutter speed varied by one stop between exposures. The five images were then combined in Photomatix to create a high dynamic range image (HDR) image, capturing detail from highlights to shadows.
