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.


City in Black and White (Two Photographs)

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.

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 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 am very pleased with both of these shots, the details show in the staircases; the tonality shows the contrast between new and old. The slight tilt adds impact. It takes a while but when you can predict the final outcome, photography is a lot more fun.

Intimate urban landscape is not quite street photography or architecture, it‘s those quirky little things you see in the corners and down the alleys of the city. For me its a matter of seeing things in a way that is unique. I enjoy showing these to people who pass the same spot and never noticed.
