This is from Fonthill, Henry Mercer’s dream home. It is a very tight space overlooking a spacious room. A balcony if you will, with a railing that I’m leaning against. There is a large window just off to the right, illuminating the edges of the books and floor. This is what I wanted to bring out in my processing, the light. Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2.0 is truly an amazing tool for this type of work. That said, I also love B&W Effects from Topaz and created the alternate faded color version below. Neither is better than the other, just different. Let me know if its time to do a video tutorial on Silver Efex Pro? This image might be a good choice for that. And remember to check out the discount page for discounts on the software I use.
Would love a video on how you made these images. I assume you use a wide-angle lens, Tripod. Max f stop. ISO 100. Focused 1/3 into the image using manuel focus.
Yes Charlie, I used a tripod and f/22 focusing 1/3 of the way into the scene. I was a 16mm on a full frame camera. ISO200 I think…
JB , I have both software, but the sliders sometimes frustrate me. I vote yes on a tutorial.
Oh the picture, I like the B/W.
Sliders on which John?
On the Silver Efex.
Brightness, contrast and structure are pretty straight forward, but highlights and midtones, I just leave them be.
WONDERFUL image and authentic to the place. Hope I got some that look half that good! Think my preference is the color one that shows off all the faded colors of the old book bindings.
I looked real hard and couldn’t find any, yet my mind is convinced I see cobwebs.
Yes please on the video
