Dramatic Weather, Dramatic Photograph

One of the days we were in the Tetons, it came a pretty good storm on us.  I had even heard reports of significant hail in the area.  Luckily, while it was storming we were resting at the hotel, however afterwards we went right out to shoot in hopes of getting images of some awesome clouds or dramatic light.

The old saying "Dramatic weather makes dramatic photos" was true here indeed.  I immediately could see some amazing black and white images being produced just from seeing the clouds the storm left us with.  While we were shooting different scenes, I told my group to keep black and white in mind for sure, because that would even be more dramatic!

One scene we photographed under these clouds was the famous barn on Mormon Row.  This is usually a great sunrise spot, but once I saw the clouds, I knew that's where we should check first for some dramatic shots.

ISO 100, 45mm, F/11 @ 1/200th second

This image was made using my Sony A7R, Sony LA-EA4 Adapter and Tamron 24-70mm Lens.  Of course I used my Vanguard Alta Pro 283CT Tripod and BBH-200 Ballhead as a solid foundation, too.  I then processed the image in Lightroom and Nik Silver Efex Software.
