Just to keep my Blog topical and up to date here is a snap taken last week in Worthing called Shelter Man – Worthing. This is IR capture processed in Silver Efex Pro 2 via Lightroom and Photoshop. The 1600 ASA Film grain and Gold toning was done in SXPro 2. Its called gold toning because darkroom gold toner turned prints a fugitive blue.
I unfortunately reformatted the CF card before importing this folder of pictures in to Lightroom which was not wise. The pictures were recovered as JPG’s not raw files with free software called Photo Recovery.
It’s a very slow process, the software will find about 6 nr 8mp files per hour, so I left it to do its stuff over night.
Tuesday 10th Jan I will be judging my first camera club Black & White Print and DPI competition at Devizes Camera Club. I have been selecting national exhibitions for a while but I have not offered to judge club competitions before. So wish me luck.
