Tall Places and Blue Skies

Tall Places and Blue Skies

Little more playing with the archives. Return trip through the Chicago archives of the stuff I never published. This mainly revolved around my inability to use Photoshop to much effect. A lot of what is now my normal workflow I didn’t know back then. Instead I would just crank the contrast and the blacks and go from there. Now I basically take what comes out of the camera and go from there. A lot of the contrast, along with light and shadows is all done between tone curves and dodging and burning. I’ll tweak it in Nik Tools, mainly a┬ápolarizing filter and pro contrast to do some color correction. Then a quick smart sharpen and unsharpen mask and done. Sounds like a lot, but trust me, its like 3 to 5 minutes of work and thats about it.

These images were all shot on a Panasonic LX7 which I realize did a fabulous job and part of my issues with it were me. However, the issues it did have drove me insane. I’m much happier with the Sony RX100M3 for the all-in-one high-end compact.

Enjoy

One thought on “Tall Places and Blue Skies

  1. The photos are well presented. I do like the older building amongst the modern ones. The clouds in the sky reflects the mood of the day.
