About the challenge and how it works:
- This challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks OR taking 4 versions of an image at the time of shooting (eg. different settings, lens etc.).. and sharing them over the 4 weeks.
- We will all process / post edit (our own chosen image) and share a different version each week. Process it however you like… and tell us a bit about it. You don’t have to show the original image unless you’d like to.
- Try new things, experiment. Be as creative or subtle as you wish to be. All skill levels are welcome.
- Links to my blog are welcome.
This time around, my image is another ‘everyday’ image… something I’ve found within my own space.
I was sitting on the back porch as the sun was getting low and noticed the light and shadow moving over these lavender heads as they blew in the wind. The light was wonderful!
To achieve this look I worked in Lightroom, adjusting the highlights and shadows – I added a touch of red to the highlights and raised the exposure a few stops as my original was a little too dark… although I did like the mood in the original.. I also de-saturated the colours a little.
So this is my first effort for this image – choosing for this first week, a lighter softer feel. It’ll be interesting to see what I can do with this image.
Here is the original below..
Well that’s it from me for our first week – now over to you and your image:
Looking forward to seeing what we discover this coming month. I hope it’s a great one for us all.
