And once you have done the full edit on a new architectural photography image there is only one thing left to do - a black and white conversion using Nik Silver Efex Pro.
I like producing the black and white alternative.
Since the plug-in was made free I have added this to my workflow. I just open the image in Silver Efex Pro and go through the presets. I don’t do any more than that. I start with my favourite presets – every time I use one I add it to my favourites. So I am still going through all the presets but adding less and less. I now have 10 selected for quick but really good black and white conversions. If I want to do something a bit more with one of the black and white conversions then that is fine – this gives me a quick conversion which helps me decide if I like what I see, and if I want to do any more to an image.
Tomorrow I will be starting on Portfolio image number 4, which you can read about at www.rickmcevoyphotography.co.uk/blog, and I know what this will be. It is another architectural photograph taken in Dorset, for a commercial construction client.
Construction product photography to be precise.
Image 4 has been dropped, as it was not up to standard, and did not fit the style of the rest of my work.
It is interesting that the first four images in my Portfolio are all from 2016, showing how much the quality of my work has improved recently. It is the older images that are getting rejected! So that is good – it is nice to know that with all this hard work there is progression in the quality of y work.
Thanks for reading this post, I hope you enjoy the black and white architectural photography image on my post, and please come back to my website tomorrow for that funnily enough.
