This old dresser was photographed in northern New Mexico. I was drawn to it by the soft window light, but just couldn’t create the image I wanted while I was there. While this image was captured a couple of years ago, I was still drawn to something about it. I decided to give it a chance and worked the image in LightRoom and Photoshop. With powerful tools for changing perspective, creating mood, adding light and textures, I transformed the image into something much closer to what I had in mind. Great fun to work, gratifying to see the result. What do you think? Here are the Before and After versions.
On the night of April 14th / April 15th we were treated to a full Lunar Eclipse. I knew there would be thousands of photographers out there capturing their version of this spectacular event. I decided I’d try something a bit different.
This is was done completely in camera. The only computer post processing that was done was a small crop from the bottom and adding my copyright © to the image.
The star (Spica I’m told) really added to the overall composition and impact of the image. Hope you enjoy my take on this event.
