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.

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.


Wall Art and “Personal Work” (Three Photographs)

A Photo Editor, that is a person who hires photographers for commercial work was asked what they look at in a new photographer and one of those things mentioned was “personal work,” Work that is uninfluenced by creative direction of a magazine or advertising agency. Having been in photographic studios where the photographer was directed, I still think personal work and amateur photography is where the fun is even if you don’t make any money at it.

I may have shot this scene before but with the door open and with people in it. Just a lovely bit of scenery. I wanted to do it justice in both colour and black and white, though my preference is the black and white, given the detail and texture.

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.

Both taken in Montreal. Pulling out detail and using contrast has made these photos a bit gritty, reflecting how I remember the scene and neighbourhood. Once again hard to find straight lines for some shots like these.

P. S. Today is the start of the eighth year of this blog!

These are two photographs I could not resist putting up. While I am doing a lot more black and white photography, colour has its allure. Both of these were taken in Montreal; the one of the food truck during the set up for a street fair.
