Another of my picks from the Delph Woods shoot.
Oh by the way, I have another similar landscape photography shoot I am working on, where I trialled my new camera bag. I just want to mention it here, but will be writing in full about it next month.
All I want to say is that it is the Peak Design Everyday Backpack – and it is fantastic.
This was the last shoot with my big old bulky backpack, and the last shoot where I carried gear that I never ever use any more.
But back to the photo, and what I did to the image in Nik Silver Efex Pro, which is the plug-in to Lightroom I use to make my black and white landscape photography images.
Fine Art Process.
Well all the images in this series have been processed using this preset.
The green filter. Again.
Lens Falloff 1. Again.
Ah there might be some variety here.
Overall brightness I reduced to -23%
Dynamic Brightness I increased to 36%. I did push it further, but backed off.
In all seriousness, I am applying the same processing settings to each image as I want a consistent set of black and white images.
Some of the black and white edits don’t work that well, but happily this one does – I really like this version.
And that is the next image in the series happily in the bag. If you know what I mean, Ok not bag. Lightroom Catalogue.
I will definitely shut up there!
