I know it’s Cinco de Mayo weekend and all… but if you could put your beer down long enough to view this on black it would be appreciated. It’s always interesting to me when I go back and view my old archives of images and see what I had previously that was “unprocessable” 6 years ago. When I shot this in 2008 I never imagined I would be able to eek out enough dynamic range or even make the light palatable enough to view it without causing a migraine. Years later with more capable software and a broadened skill set, the approach to this shot was simple and took all of 15min to process from start to finish. It’s only two exposures blended for dynamic range, some texture adjustments, a couple luminosity adjustments, and a significant amount of dodging and burning. If you are interested in how I go about creating my unique look in my images, I recently released a video about it. It’s for sale up on my site http://ift.tt/HjSx9r
You’ll also find info about workshops, processing instruction via Skype, prints, and an article about my hobby of collecting stained glass portraits of minor league baseball stars.
