A Photo a day in Naples: Exterior of the Old Collier Golf Club
So of course I had every hope of posting a photo a day. But due to lots of things work being one of them I have already missed that. I was recently asked to shoot this photo of the Old Collier Golf Club in Naples Florida. I was asked to shoot the club house for their annual Christmas card. I leapt at the chance. I knew exactly what I wanted to do. So I made several exposures, all at iso 100 at f.8. The shutter speed was kind of arbitrary, I shot it at different speeds to bring out various details from one shot to another. I did also use supplemental lighting in the form of 3 hot lights and two cars head lights. In the version the wanted for their card I added stars. The whole shot is a mash up of about 15 layers in photoshop and about 10 photos. I did the stars using a photoshop brush I found online. I added a bunch and then went in and erased a bunch to make them more random. Lstly if you look in the top windows on the roof you will notice the left and right one are the same. The trees on the left one, as you are looking at, blocked the view so to add cemetery I took the one from the right and added it and rebuilt the trees. The total time to make the exposures was about an hour and for some reason, the weather was hot and humid, which in Florida really is not a surprise. It also made it a little hard to get in the mood for the holidays. I hope you like it.
