The Bounty Hunter

Tefnut Spirals

The delightful  Tefnut Spirals, shot in her crypt one sunday afternoon..

I’d only popped over to do a few quick snaps of her in a t-shirt to promote her boyfriend’s band. Funny how things work out, eh?

A quick mono edit of the lovely Layla, shot at Eyebox Studio in Bristol this evening.

Expect to see a lot more of this young lady very soon!

 

Oops, rookie mistake!

I had a quick trip out yesterday to take a few snaps with my friend Phil.  I’d suggested a quick trip down to the Severn bridge as there’s generally something pleasing to be had there.  I’ve been a bit under the weather for a few days and I clearly wasn’t firing on all cylinders as when I got home I realised that horror of horrors, I’d been shooting with me camera on medium size, highly compressed jpegs..  Oops, how embarassing, especially as I’m always preaching the benefit of shooting in RAW mode..  It just so happened that last week I’d shot a weekend event where I was only taking snaps that I didn’t expect to ecit, so of course I was happy shooting in jpeg.  First time ever..

Still, it seems I just about got away with it – click the header image above and let me know if you agree :-)

 

 

Mono Conversions

The example below show how much more effective a simple image can be with a monochrome conversion.

Hopefully by the wonders of modern science you should be able to move your mouse over the image below (grab and drag the little handle) and see a before/after example of the original image with nothing done to it (other than a slight crop), and then the ‘after’ image with a little TLC applied. What’s been done? Actually on this one not that much.

  • Cloned out the plastic bag
  • Converted to mono
  • Localised exposure adjustments to bring up some shadow detail

Move the slider to the left to reveal the ‘before’ image..
