I rarely have time to do series of images. This is mainly due to the fact that editing takes considerable amount of time. With me having some time off I went ahead and completed a series I have had in mind for some time, all the architectural shots I have taken over the course the last year or so and publish them in cohesive sets.
I broke up all the images into what I consider sets of similar characteristics. This set I am calling details. It’s more about the finer points within the architecture. Some of it is subjective. It is my interpretation of the style and I do not pretend to be an architect by any stretch of the imagination.
For those of you that read regularly and aren’t into pictures of buildings have hope. I will intersperse the series with normal landscape and travel photos I normally do. I am cognizant that this is mostly personal interest to me.
I’m not going into editing details. The series was shot on 5 different cameras. I have used a Canon S100, Sony RX100III, Sony A7R, Nikon D810, and Olympus EM1. The images were shot in Thailand, Panama, and the United States, specifically Chicago. I could have jammed more in but I thought that was enough.
Hope you enjoy.
This one is from the archives and I published it before. You can see the original here. I was in my HDR everything phase and it showed. The image was crap.
I was digging around for some other images for Instagram to publish there and I came across this one again. With me traveling to Florida where I took this image I might as well republish it. This time I did not HDR it to death in some attempt to prove I could merge 7 images together regardless of the outcome.
Editing wise the first thing I did was color correct the image. The colors are accurate where the original was a muddy mess. I did the usual curves adjustments and then local dodging and burning as needed. Just ignore the part where I maybe dodged a wee bit too much around the man. I’ll blame that on me not calibrating my monitor until after the image was done. Too
Finally home after 6 glorious (not) nights in a hotel 15 minutes from my apartment. So close yet so far away. It’s good to be back on my own editing rig. While I had use of a 23″ monitor it was a pain to use. So the first thing I did after dumping my luggage was hook up my laptop again.
This is an older photo I found while looking for some other images. No idea why I never published it. Who knows what was going through my mind but its a very cool image. I really wanted the wood to pop and stand out from all the green in the leaves around the fallen tree.
Editing I did the usual but added a luminosity mask to sharpen things up and make the greens a bit brighter forcing the attention (least in my opinion) to the fallen tree. Did some sharpening to make that stand out and I’m happy.
Another round of flower photos! I would write about them more but I honestly don’t remember them much as I edited them all last week to have everything ready for posting. I did this so that when I returned from Costa Rica I didn’t have to rush an edit job.
I’ll return to more normal editing tomorrow now that I am home on my larger screens and usual editing tools.
