Neodigital Art | Update 21
It poured with rain on Friday and when it stopped we took a few photographs, this one shows the effect of bad light and a suitable subject. This was a demolition site and the water adds to the effect. I also did a sepia version of this photograph, but the black and white seemed to work better. As usual, I used Windows Live photo gallery for the editing.
I chose sepia for this shot and the stark industrial landscape of the demolished factories contrasts against the church in silhouette. The trees add to the contrasting effect and the electricity pylons silhouette against the sky. It’s not pretty but unusual!
Giving a picture warmth
Over the road from the demolition site is this path leading to a canal, it looks intriguing and I like these railings in black and white. I added contrast to this photograph when I was editing and a little ‘warmth’. Adding ‘warmth’ adds reds, if you send the slider the other way it makes the picture ‘colder’ by adding blues.
I like photographing steps, they go away from us and appear narrower as they do; giving the picture depth without anything in the foreground. The railing too adds to the effect. These pictures aren’t too bad for a very wet and dull Friday, which shows that although we hope for good light, we can take some spooky pictures in bad weather; even though keeping rain off the lens of the camera can be challenging!
