Trip


Photobucket


My housemate wanted a head shot for a conference promotion so we traipsed round the house looking for even mediocre light.  There wasn't any.  So we did our best and went with the central shot above.  The rest of the images were junk (happening a lot lately, need to get my head straight with lighting and producing good images in-camera...), but I wanted to salvage something, and this triptych's the best of what we got.  It's a little dark, but overall for 10 minutes work in a low wattage energy-saver lit kitchen they came out ok I think.

Smokestacks outside Nottingham.  I got shouted at for taking these, apparently I was violating anti-terrorism laws; presumably I could have been scoping out potential targets?  These stacks are next to a busy public station, I took the second one from the platform.

Lightroom Experiments - testing out postproduction in Adobe Lightroom

All images are clickable for large sizes.

I'm not normally a fan of airbrushing imperfections (I like imperfections, and skin that looks like skin), but the original photo was junk, noisy, glitchy, badly lit.  I liked the composition so I decided to see what Lightroom could do as a standalone editor and tried to go for something soft and matte, almost painted.
