Out Of The Darkness

Out Of The Darkness

Title curtesy of Pantera’s Cowboys From Hell. Must give a RIP to Dimebag Darrell, the Pink Beard in the Sky. Start Googling now for your heavy metal history lesson.¬†The title also works for this post because it was shot in San Antonio, Texas and Pantera was from Dallas. Close enough. I shot a lot in San Antonio but it was done for HDR and as I have ventured forth into HDR photography I noticed some issues that I am still…

Monochromatic Nature

Monochromatic Nature

I said I was done with the flowers but I didn’t mention the leaves from Meadowlark Gardens. I always like my leaves in monochromatic because you always get details you never see in color. No tools were used in the conversion to monochrome, just done in Lightroom. Then ran through the usual Photoshop filters. Enjoy.

Escape To The Sky

Escape To The Sky

I like fire escapes. It’s just not something I grew up with. The same with tall buildings. If you live near DC nothing until recently was built above 10 stories or so. In Washington DC itself no building can be taller then the Capitol. So with that in mind, fire escapes were rare. So when I see them I gravitate towards them because they cast some cool shadows and add drama to the image (least in my mind). These two…

Neoclassical Architecture In Monochrome

Neoclassical Architecture In Monochrome

Still in my architecture mode. I had a series of neoclassical stuff and I felt it would look good in monochrome so I went with it. I am Macphun’s Tonality Pro to do the conversions to monochrome. I am impressed with Tonality Pro and may start using it more when I do my conversions. For inquiring minds, the last two days were shot in Baltimore over the weekend. Enjoy.

Baltimore in Monochrome

Baltimore in Monochrome

While still suffering from man flu I managed to do a large number of edits. In all likelihood my production over the next week will drop as I am traveling for work. Its difficult to find time to edit when on the road. Hopefully I will find time to shoot and play with my new Olympus 40-150mm 2.8 lens that I haven’t had an opportunity to play with yet. One night is a planned night shoot with a tripod weather…

Mulberry St.

Mulberry St.

I didn’t feel like doing anything much after writing my enema opus yesterday. Today I happily got my Olympus 40-150mm 2.8 lens in and stared at it in a mildly erotic way when it was mounted on my new Olympus EM1. It was glorious. Then I realized I needed to edit pictures which would distract me from the camera porn that I had assembled in front of me. I set it aside and produced the images below. I’ll be honest…

Winters Grasp

Winters Grasp

Seeing how it snowed again it seemed time to take some pictures. I stopped on the way to work in at a national park and snapped these images with my Sony RX100M3. The weather was grey and color was washed out at best. So I just did ¬†conversion to monochromatic and just let the tones take over the images. For those of you that are curious about the editing music, Lamb of God’s most excellent album Resolution. For those of…
