White Church

Fri Aug 4, 2017

This beautiful old church is located in the small town of carrollton, just west of Winona on Hwy. 45 not too far East of the Mississippi Delta. These old churches are great and really add character when they are located in a downtown area or on a square.

Heading to Natchez with my wife today for the weekend, so be looking for lots of photos from the area in the next few weeks.

Hay

Tue Jul 18, 2017

I got a lot of positive feedback after announcing that this site will be going away soon. To clear up any confusion, I am not giving up photography, nor am I going to stop taking photos in different areas of Mississippi. In fact my wife and I will be travelling to Natchez (For the first time ever) and plan to take lots of photos there. I will probably continue to post on my Mississippi in HDR Facebook page after October, but it will not be near as frequent. I am in the process of building a new web site at lifephotographyms.com where I will run a blog there and plan to post very frequently (possibly everyday) so be sure to follow my facebook page and my instagram page for LIFE photography to keep up to date with new photos of all different types and places.

This photo was taken in a field near Carollton in the late morning hours.

As I have mentioned before, I edit my photos in Adobe Lightroom, and in Lightroom you can load presets created by other people and you can also create your own presets and save them for later use. When I first started photo editing in LR I scoured the interwebs for free presets that I could play around with on my own photos and learn how they were created. Over time I started to develop my own presets, some based off of others that I found and more recently, others that I completely created on my own through lots of trial and error. Even more recently I created this black and white preset while working on portrait shots that I have taken and then realized that they might look pretty good on some of my landscape photos. Here is an example. I like to play around with black & white or more specifically monochrome edits (since this one is exactly black & white but a toned image) because they add so much drama to a photo and it's fun to see what you can get out of such a seemingly simple editing style.

This hay bale comes to you from Carroll County just across the Montgomery County line near Carrollton. A common scene in Mississippi.

Big Tree

Sat Jul 2, 2016

Here's a nice scene from Carroll County about a mile off of hwy. 45. Decided to take a backroad and see what was there and I found this field full of hay bails and this one big tree all alone by a fence. Very calm scene with overcast sky.

Episcopal Church - Carrollton

Sun Aug 30, 2015

This was a very interesting church building. When I was walking towards I actually thought it was a house. It has a nice wrought iron fence around it and the architecture looks like something from a small European village. Really really cool place.

Carrollton Presbyterian Church - Carrollton

Sun Aug 2, 2015

I loved this old church in downtown Carrollton on the square. I love to see these old places of worship kept up in downtown areas and squares. It adds to the charm of small towns. There was also an interesting Episcopal Church building right across the street that I will post a photo of in the future.

Green Field - Carroll County

Sun Jul 19, 2015

I took this photo pretty early in the morning. Unfortunately it was really cloudy but the sun was peeking through just enough to add some flare to the scene. The field was so green and beautiful though that it didn't matter much that the sun wasn't completely out. This was a fantastic area with lots of rolling hills and open fields. Couldn't take enough photos while I was there.

Hay Bale in Carroll County

Fri Jul 10, 2015

Last Friday I took advantage of my day off to ride through Montgomery and Carroll Counties. I ventured off the highway and found a huge farm with lots of open land so I kept stopping on the side of the road to get some shots. This is one of my favorites from those frequent stops. Lots of things to see on those Mississippi back roads.
