Down The Road with my #ProjectDSCS30

I thought it was time to re-visit my #ProjectDSCS30 that I introduced in this post a couple months ago.  As a reminder, this is a small personal project where I am capturing images with what is now considered an ancient camera, a Sony DSC-S30.  This is a 1 megapixel camera that while it does not have any real manual control, it surprisingly enough does allow me to shoot in TIFF mode.

This image was from a recent work trip down to Oregon where I made a side trip to the Columbia River Gorge to do a little shooting.  My recently posted Horsetail Falls image was from that same trip.  I processed this image in Lightroom and Perfect Black & White from OnOne Software. I thought that the title “Down The Road” seemed fitting for this image.

The purpose of this little project is not to create amazing art with a real cheap, very old camera, but simply to illustrate that you can make interesting images with any camera you have in your hands, it really shouldn’t be about the gear, but with your eye and your ability to get the most out of the gear that you do have.  I hope you enjoy this image as well as the future submissions to this project.

    That’s a great shot. I really like this series. Perhaps I’ve been too quick to get rid of my old gear.

[…] Down The Road with my #ProjectDSCS30 – Scott Wood shows us all how it’s the photographer that’s important, not the actual tools.  This is a terrific photo that Scott processes in black-and-white to bring all the drama out, and the incredible vanishing point from the ribbon of road here tops it all off just wonderfully.
