Here are a few shots from a road trip that Cyndie and I took an Anderson Center resident photographer, Norbert Marklin, for a spin around a favorite haunt of ours – Pierce County, WI; more specifically the Esdaile area.
Professional photographer, Norbert Marklin, was fortunate to be accepted into the Anderson Center’s residency program for the month of May. This program is the largest of its kind in the Upper Midwest. Since the Anderson Center opened in 1995, more than 700 artists, writers, and scholars from over 43 states and 35 foreign countries have participated in the program. Norbert’s residency proposal was to capture more of the history of Red Wing and its surrounding communities by researching surviving structures and places at the Goodhue County Historical Society.

Here are some shots of subjects other than barns and other rustic things…well, somewhat anyway. We did visit an abandoned farmstead and the views through the windows caught my eye easily; exposing the scene correctly was another matter. Shooting through the mid-day harsh light with clear blue skies can be challenging. I can’t say enough about the wonderful post-processing tools we have available to us today. Sometimes I like to click buttons just to see how far you can take something. It doesn’t always work and sometimes you just can’t save the image, but at least you know what kind of photo-magic you can wield if necessary.
