Wanted to do something a little different this week that I have been thinking about for quite awhile. Still-life with a touch of the Renaissance.
I signed up for Joel Grimes Still Life Masterclass and really liked his approach to doing Still life photography. See www.joelgrimes.com. The basics to his technique is using a single Cross Lighting setup, similar to the Rembrandt Portrait Lighting style, and adding Textures, along with Blending options. These are my first attempt at using this technique. What do you think?
The A. Ravenal Jr. Bridge in Charleston, SC has had many impressive photographs taken over the years. I recently had the opportunity to take a quick drive over the bridge. Wish I could of stayed to photograph the entire bridge with better lighting. But, you take what you can when it presents itself. This is a Before shot taken through the windshield that I was able to take while driving across the bridge. Note: I was not driving, but in the passenger seat. The driver was hell bent on getting across, so this is a quick grab shot.
The After image was the result of processing in Lightroom, Photoshop, and an adjusted Serge Remeli B/W preset. Comment below if interested in the details of my processing workflow. I like to think this is a good example of a photograph taken in the harsh afternoon light and presented as a dramatic and artful image.
