A picture of The Shard, London. Another picture of this much photographed London landmark.
So I needed to do something different.
Time to venture into Photoshop. This image was captured at a shutter speed of 1/1600th of a second at F8, handheld, using an ISO of 200. Taken on my Canon 6D of course with Canon 24-105mm lens.
I really need to write some posts about my camera and accessories – they are rather important to me.
Back to the image. I wanted to produce something different. The building is the building. All that is left is the sky. Well I could do something to the building but I don’t want to.
So no it is as I said time to do some creative processing in Photoshop as you will be aware by now (hopefully) I use Photoshop mainly for cleaning up images, specifically
- removing debris, stones, litter, gravel
- removing unwanted
- fixing bare patches of turf
- removing chewing gum from school playgrounds
- removing smoke detectors
- removing builders debris
- cleaning up after the builders
- making good defects to plaster
- touching up decorations
All exciting stuff I know.
But for this post I am just going to introduce the tool that I used then move on, as I am going to spend a lot of time on this, and sky replacement, this winter.
Yes, I said winter.
Sorry. But we all know it is on its way.
I have my blog posts for August and September scheduled, and have lots of subjects backing up, but this winter I am going to focus my writing and the time associated with it on three things, all Photoshop things.
- Sky replacement
Yes, I used Path Blur to blur the sky. And I am going to experiment with this over the winter.
Back to the portfolio tomorrow. I feel like I am on the home straight with this which is good.
