LETS TALK PHOTOGRAPHY
FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY - BASICS OF DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY
TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY - EQUIPMENT - PHOTOGRAPHY SOFTWARE
It was suggested that I do a follow-up on how I created the "Foreboding"-Black Vulture image, as shown on the previous blog entry Before going into any detail, I am currently learning a new software program (Screen Flow 2, by Telestream) on videoing the process. So, until I feel comfortable about showing you an actual edit on video, I'll just present a brief narrative of the creative process at this time.
The original was taken on a very overcast day. The vulture had just taken off from his perch on top of the pole and flew straight towards me. Olympus E-M1 MarkII, Lumix 100-300 f/4-5.6 lens. ISO 200, 300mm, 1/640 sec @f7.1. Processed in Adobe Lightroom Classic and Luminar 4.2. Lightroom was used for all the basic adjustments to include Gradient and Radial adjustments, along with the dodge and burning brush. Luminar was used for Sky replacement with minimal enhanced AI adjustments.
Learning Screen Flow has been a bit more complicated then I originally thought, or maybe it's just me making it more complicated. Regardless, I will get the hang of it and hopefully have it posted shortly.
In the meantime, if you have any interest in the "Artistic" side of photography, here's a link to a short tutorial by Matt Kloskowski on Brushes in Adobe Photoshop for your entertainment. Click Here
It's hard to believe that more than 3 years have passed by since posting to this blog. A lot has happened since then and now that we are under this Corona Virus restrictions I find I have time on my hands, so, this is a good time to resurrect the blog.
I will try to post a couple of times a week and will be updating the portfolio with more current images. Also, I will open the comments section for you to comment, ask questions about software or how I processed an image, post links to interesting photography related subjects that I come across, etc.
