Here’s an example of my fine art photography work I shot this past spring. It’s a photograph of the Electric Fan barn quilt on Highway 240 in Howard County, Missouri near Fayette. Barn owner Martha Holman selected the Electric Fan motif because it resembled one her mother’s favorite quilts. Quilter Donna Sue Groves started the barn quilt movement in 2001 in Adams County, Ohio as a way to honor her mother and her Appalachian roots. You can now find barn quilts in 40 states and Canada too. Missouri has a Barn Quilt program called the Boonslick’s Patchwork of Roadside Quilts, developed by the Missouri Arts Council. Check this map for a list of barn quilt locations in the State of Missouri, http://barnquiltinfo.com/map-MO.html.
The photograph was taken with a Sony ILCE-7RM3 camera with a Canon TS-E24mm f/3.5L II lens at ƒ/14.0 with a 25-second exposure at ISO 50. I also used an 11stop NiSi neutral density filter for cloud movement. The processing was done with Adobe Lightroom CC.
