A 365 Day Project

Day 48/365: Paterson Former Union Shed

Established in 1911, this is the Former Union Shed in Paterson. In amongst quaint little homes it sits desolate & deserted. You can’t go inside, but it’s full of stuff. I’m sure there would be some treasures to photograph in there, especially if what’s outside is any indication (watch this space!). The verandah timbers are leaning, the roof is rusting, and gutters are not coping. I will follow this with some close ups of some of the details of the shed, and the treasure I found down the side!

  1. Beautiful picture of the old union hall. Forgive my ignorance, but I’d like to know more about your comment regarding three exposures. What did you do exactly? Thank you!

    • No problem. This is an HDR image (High dynamic range). I took 3 exposures of the shed, one normal exposure as per the camera settings and then bracketed that with one underexposed and one overexposed. Then I have merged these exposures together into one, which gives a closer depiction of what the eye can actually see, with details in the shadows and nothing blown out. I hope that makes sense.
