I spent a couple of days exploring southern Oregon this weekend. Getting out has made me realize that Medford kind of sucks. I can’t think of any good places to shoot in town. Luckily, the surrounding areas are really peaceful and beautiful.
This photo was taken out at the newly restored McKee Covered Bridge in the Applegate Valley. If you’ve never been to the Applegate, it’s a nice, rural area, with wineries and farms. Definitely a relaxing place to spend the weekend.
We got to the bridge at noon, which equals crappy light. The problem with letting someone else show you around to take photos is they don’t understand quality of light, unless they’re an experienced photographer too. Outside of the bridge, the dynamic range of light was way too much for HDR apps, so I decided the only good shots were going to be taken inside the bridge.
This was shot with ProHDRX, using my iPro super wide angle lens. I edited the photo in Snapseed. Nothing fancy.
