Driving a truck this winter must be simply hell. Just in my cul-de-sac alone, the UPS truck can no longer just drive in and circle back out. He has to back in and deliver his packages from only one parked position. There just isn’t room for him to turn around or go anywhere else due to the piled high snowbanks.
So, today, I took a series of photos but the one with the big truck caught my eye. The sun was out, the sky was blue and white but it was midday and the sky and the snow seemed to be the same hue and exposures on the fly were crazy due to wide spectrum of light.
So, I decided to correct as best I could the exposure range and began with Nik Filters and tried a Topaz Impressions painting filter ( I love this new filter btw) and ultimately ended plugins with the Macphun Tonal Pro black and white filter.
The blue sky I decided to texture in at the end lightly with two different textures: one a tonal one and the second, a sky texture of similar ratio of white clouds and blue sky.
It’s not perfect but I showed some truck photo love in this harsh winter of 2015.
