A Before & After Image

This is image is taken by another photographer from an online Photoshop completion which I enterd.

The top image is a RAW format image, which is basically an unprocessed image taken just as the camera recorded it with no enhancements or adjustments applied. Most digital cameras take images in a format known as JPG (by default) which are pre-processed automatically in the camera.  I myself always work with RAW files, as they give me the largest amount of data, and I can always revert back to the unprocessed original anytime.  This is probably why it’s known as a “Digital Negative”.

Both of these interpretations called upon quite a bit of Photoshop techniques and styles of my own to help improve upon this image.  So my two interpretations, color and black & white, are submitted here.

So which do you like best?

Central Oregon Photo Trip – May 2011

These images are just a partial representation of my recent photo trip a few days ago with my good friend Dr. Nick Carulli, a great photographer in his own right. We’ve been friends for close to 30 years now and have taken quite a few of these trips throughout the years. If you’ve ever watched American Pickers you’ll have a good idea of what our trips are like. The way these guys talk and interact with each other reminds me so much of us. Just like them we love old things, but instead of coming away with antiques we come away with images. 

Although we’ve traveled to Central Oregon many times before neither one of us have been to the Painted Hills area, so we decided to make that one of our destinations. This was a two day trip for us and we decided it was one of  the best ever. Everywhere we went subjects abounded and the lighting was just spectacular. Hope you enjoy what I’ve captured here.

A view camera and some Polaroid film – at least that’s the impression.
