Brown Mountain Photography

Photography by Tim Hupp

This is named for the Brown Mountain in the southern section of the Shenandoah National Park.  I live at the base of Brown Mountain and I am the PATC volunteer overseer of the Brown Mountain Trail, a 5.3 mile trail leading from the Skyline Drive to the Big Run Portal.

My computer processing techniques:

Building adjustment - When you take a picture looking up at a building, the resulting picture makes it look like it narrows as it rises, or is leaning away from you.  This effect can be cancelled in processing: 


Harris Shutter Effect

This method takes three pictures of something moving, filters each of them different complementary colors, and recombines them so that stationary things look normal, but moving things are a swirl of colors:


               I                                      I                                    I
              V                                     V                                  V


                                                    I                         /


It works best when what is moving is white against a darker background.
