Always more to come

Silhouettes

For good a week I have been trying some Adobe Lightroom and Nik Silver Efex Pro presets developed by Don Springer, aka Streetshooter, and Olivier Duong. These presets are designed to give your photographs a hard and gritty look. These photographs were done with one of the Silver Efex Pro presets with a bit less grain and some dodging and burning. I intend to write more extensively about these presets in another blog post soon and try to give you some insight in some of my (ir)rational reasoning that I have in my photography, post processing, workflow, personal ethics and decisions that lead up to this. These decisions might have lead to things that work for me, but might not work for others or sound completely illogical based on common knowledge and proven technology.
