Doorways (Two Photographs)

Doorways can often be interesting subjects and I certainly took a lot of them in Montreal. Luminar has enabled me to get quite a bit of detail out of the photographs with its masks and neutral density filters to get just the look I wanted.

Both of these were taken in Montreal – the first is the new university library and the second some houses in the Plateau District. With Luminar most of the features of the black and white processing software Tonality CK are there. The excellent presets have been recreated and are free for download. Black and White conversion is not difficult but you do need to think about contrast and colour filters to get just the right range of tones and Luminar has those tools.

Most modern software apart from Lightroom and Photoshop, automatically apply too much colour saturation for my taste. Though I suspect this is because that is what the majority of photographers want. You just have to pull back the sliders to avoid this. I have tried these flowers with a bit more saturation to see how it goes. By the way, a photograph to be processed in black and white will benefit from a bit more contrast and saturation.

This week all the photographs have been processed with Photolemeur and Luminar. The scenes here are HDR in Photoshop and adjusted with the above software. To some degree I think Skylum took a step back when it concentrated its efforts on Luminar rather than the separate apps of the Creative Kit. But in reality things move on. More comments as the week goes on.


A Floral Arrangement (Two Photographs)

I took these in a wild garden, the flowers are not curated or gardened. The bouquet is natural. I liked how the flowers were positioned as well as the lighting, just a touch macabre in black and white.

 


Nature (Two Photographs)

I called this set nature but it was the processing that interested me; higher contrast, more detail, a bit abstract. Not every experiment works or has the impact I would wish, but at the very least they help my thinking for future ideas.

Taken like the previous posts this week in Montreal. This time just a bit off “The Main” (St. Laurent Boulevard) but in the same neighbourhood, one very much in flux and increasingly popular. I keep saying I will do another part of Montreal, but this area is like a magnet.
