This process, although simplistic was applied to all of the photographs which have been selected for exhibition and book presentation; the principle works extremely effectively at creating an escapism, a new location.
The intention was to complete as much of the work as possible, in camera. Therefore ensuring the settings, exposure, lighting, etc is a close to final as possible was intrinsic to remove the requirements of lengthy post-production in Adobe Photoshop.
The photograph process includes:
- Initially opening the images in camera raw to adjust any settings in a non-destructive manner.
- Remove Chromatic Aberration.
- Enable Profile Corrections – to ensure any lens distortion is corrected.
- Open the photographs into photoshop as Smart Objects; for quick linking to and editing of the saved camera raw settings.
- Open the images in Photoshop.
- Changing the blend mode to overlay.
- Save the photograph file in the appropriate format.
Below are a few examples of this process.
