Debbie must have been thinking along the lines of Sassy when she sent me this historical photo of Majors Stadium in Greenville, Texas. What a difference it makes to show this photo in black and white opposed to color. I do think it is better represented in black and white and I like the fact that Debbie has included the historical marker.
In shooting anything like a sign which needs to be read, my personal suggestion would be to take several photos of the sign, “squaring up” your camera to the sign in order to get the letters as sharp as possible and to get the sign aligned as closely as possible which can also be corrected with photoshop or an editing program. With a bit of rotation and cropping and by increasing the contrast and by sharpening just a bit, I think it makes for a bit of a better photo. When we do our historical shoot, we will also be working on shooting the sign.
Thanks Debbie for your great submission and helping to prepare us for an upcoming shoot!
