I am running a bit late to post for the Imagecraft Bootcamp last week’s challenge.
Mitch gave us a tough challenge. In his words: ..this post is all about shooting from the dark side of a subject… the shadowed side… the side opposite from the light source… the side that we are specifically cautioned against shooting from by camera manuals (or at least we used to be). This is also known as contre-jour and backlit photography.
Well, I used a photo that it was stored as rejected at my LightRoom catalogue. I shot it last summer, right after the sunrise.
I followed Mitch’s wise guidance, curious to see what the results would be.
Here is the original photo.
Here is the post processed photo in color. I adjusted it first (auto tone; lens correction; sharening; color correction; graduated filter; radial filter) before cropping.
I converted it to Black and White.
The featured image is the black & white version, after I applied an antique filter using Silver Efex Pro2.
