My confession is that this is not a new image. I took it a few months ago and found it again today while cataloging my pictures into groups ready for; back up, sorting for new portfolio and getting ready for a fresh crop of pictures for 2015. I had already converted the image to a 32bit HDR and the colours were all over the place, a lot of purples and green casts. That makes should have been expected with both cold and warm light clashing.
I edited the image mostly with the elliptical and local adjustment tools with the black and white toning added with a kodak 3200 ISO preset I have. I chose a very high speed film to emulate to have that punchy contrast but without the harsh grain.
Now to my question. I have been thinking about writing a series of posts about digital photo editing, mainly aimed at the beginner or those wanting a better understanding of either Photoshop/ Lightroom. My question is, would that interest you dear reader and if so would you prefer the posts to start with Lightroom or Photoshop? If there is no interest I will hold back writing them.
Also tomorrow (Saturday 3rd January) is #1day12pics on Instagram and Twitter where I and several other photobloggers take one photo roughly every hour. If you wish to join in just take a photo and share via instagram or twitter using the tag #1day12pics.
