The Road; 2/22/11; 11:43pm ;Bannack, MT; Canon Rebel T2I; Manual; f 11; 1/320;

HDR edited through Dynamic Photo Using High contrast and adjusting vivid colors , brightness , luminosity , gama and color curves. I played with all the effect until I got my desired outcome. I tried not to add too much color to it so the sky would stay blue. Once I created a HDR I opened on Photoshop and bumped up the saturation, contrast adjusted the levels so some parts of the picture so some objects would appear more than others.

With all the effects applied, I added a quote and selected the fonts that would go well with the picture. Once the text was added I positioned and aligned the text to an area where it would be readable and would create a pattern. With all the elements I needed , I sized the photo to a posters size 36×24 and turned the PSD file to the Canvas man so he could do the work.

Taking the HDR shots was a fun experience. I first set my camera bracketing in order to change the exposure of every three shots I would take then I set my camera on a tripod and took 3 different shots. Once I had all the shots I opened all the HDR pictures on Dynamic Photo to combine all the exposure of every set of 3 pictures. Once all the sets was combined I toned the picture by playing with color, luminosity effects until I go the desired results.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bannack Macro abstract

Wood fence – Bannack , Montana – F 5.6; 1/800- Cannon EOS Rebel T2i

Wall paper – Bannack , Montana – F 4.5; 1/50- Cannon EOS Rebel T2i

To take these macro shots I positioned myself in a good angle where I could get a good composition. On the first shot I would focused on the front of the fence and had the background blurry. The second picture I took a very close shot of the wall paper in order to get all the texture. Once I opened them on Photoshop I blended them using color doge burn blending mode and adjusted the brightness and contrast of the picture

Wheel Bannack , Montana – F 4.0; 1/30- Cannon EOS Rebel T2i

Piano – Bannack , Montana – F 5.6; 1/60- Cannon EOS Rebel T2i

To make the foreground blurry on the first picture i tried to focus on the background of the picture instead of the foreground and so that why the foreground appears a little blurry. On the second shot i did the opposite, I focused on the foreground leaving the background blurry.

Christie Jump– Banack , Montana – F 10.0;1/125- Cannon EOS Rebel T2i

To create these shots I had the shutter speed of 6 to 8 seconds and while the shutter speed was running I had the person move in order to create a ghost or capture the action. In the beginning was hard to make the picture look the way I wanted them i asked the person to move 3  seconds after i had pushed the button down and the pictures came out great

 

 

 

Bannack Portraits

Jake– Banack , Montana – F 6.3; 1/15- Cannon EOS Rebel T2i

Christie– Banack , Montana – F 6.3; 1/125- Cannon EOS Rebel T2i

To take these portraits I tried to find good spots at Banack where I would have good lighting and where my subjects could pose however they want to. I set the camera on the tripod in order to have balance and take solid shots where I would not have any alignment problems.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fine art template

Posted: February 21, 2011 in Uncategorized

To create this fine art template I first created a new document on Photoshop with 18 in wide x12 in high @ 150 ppi. Then i created 5 rectangles using the free transform tool. to align my rectangles I aligned them by clicking on” Align Horizontal Center’ from there i opened the image and resized it to the documents size in order to fit on the 5 rectangles. The last step was to create a clipping mask so the image could be inserted to the document.
