Looking back and finding a picture to edit.

Waterton Lakes National Park

Standing on a bluff overlooking the National Park that is called Waterton Lakes. I shot this one in colour and thought Gee I think this one would look absolutely stunning in black and white. So off I went I spent a fair amount of time changing it to black and white. And what I mean by that is, I don't just turn it into grayscale and call it done. I spend a fair amount of time dealing with grey levels, dodging and burning and getting everything just so. That is to my vision at the very least.

 

As I said a while back, I am trying to make little, short blogs about images that I have created so you can get a better idea of what I do. This image is an example of one of the many images that I put aside and mulled over for many weeks or months. To be quite honest with you I photographed this image in March of 2019 and I have visited this image repeatedly about 8 or 10 times to finally get it to where it is right now. There is a colour version, but I'm not as impressed with it as I am with the black and white.

So here's the information, the image is shot with a Canon 5DSr with a EF70-200mm F4L [176mm} at F11 and 1/160 sec, it is comprised of four images shot at portrait. the image was edited in Lightroom for its most basic steps, then brought into nick silver effects for its black and white conversion. I'm not quite convinced that it's worthy of a print but that's still up for debate.

 

So, I'll be doing one of these photograph explanations at least every week and I might do the occasional blog for a larger generic issue. I'm always up for anybody who's got questions on how I achieve something or how do I photograph this or how do I photograph that I'm more than happy to help you. Always can send messages and you can always make a comment I will do my best to respond to these comments but understand that every single one is screened. For some reason some oriental companies decide that my website is the perfect location to hawk their wares. I think this has something to do with the extremely large number of images that I have stolen in that region. This is the reality of a modern landscape photographer, I guess.

 

Signing off in the typical method that I have chosen to choose,

Shut up and shoot and remember to print it!

Cheers
