Hudson Farm's Charity Hike of 2012

May 21, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

The 2012 Charity Hike at the Hudson Farm’s 3,800 acre property was a blast again year.  The private property is so nicely maintained and preserved.

I wanted to walk away with that “one photo” this year but the time of day for photography work was all wrong. 

It was going on 1pm and the event was winding down but that “High Noon” lighting that every photographer knows to avoid was present. 

Had to make my shot but the lighting was nothing special.  A thing to remember, a professional assignment photographer will have to adapt and overcome.  There is no coming back tomorrow. 

I decided to take a series of 9 bracketed images and merged them together to create this one final image.  It was the only way I was able to re-create that special lighting I needed in the post process.

 

In this image, I wanted to recreate that old historical look of the original farm.  Took advantage of the dwindling crowds and captured this image of the fire pit area when the crowds cleared out.  Antiqued it to look the part.

 

In the fall, it is a fun spot to a pheasant on the roadside for a picture. 

 

Most of my hawk pictures come from this area.  They are feeding on the stocked pheasants.   

 

Up the Road at Bear Pond I was able to find some migrating ducks last fall.
