Always more to come

2012, Photography

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.

  2. Whatever tools you use, you use well Wouter. The exact mix is interesting to read about but the best part is seeing what you do with them. I’m quite sure you could make great images with any camera and any mix of digital (or film) tools.

    1. Not the tools are the essence, but what you want to say with your photographs. For me that is the essence, Richard. The tools just helps me expressing myself more explicitly.

  3. Loved these photographs, especially through the frame. Lots to enjoy and think about in each of these. Hope you and your family are doing well. All the best. -Amin

  4. ‘Through the frame’ is a wonderful shot – lots to see and think about. Hope you and family are doing well. All the best, Amin
