I think this is my second ever post on Francine's blog. I try hard to keep my nose out of here so that my more to the point and all too often lawyerly style doesn't contaminate Francine's more romantic and evocative prose. But I was drafted into it, so if this post is lacking, you know who to complain to.
As it happens, Francine is attending the Leaders in Design Conference this week in New York. Events are so tightly scheduled during this conference that we thought it might be best if Francine camped in town for the duration so she's staying with her dear college friend Michelle while I hold down the fort here in Connecticut.
Now to the meat of this post. Recently, both Francine and I have taken to trying to capture the play of light at different times of day. Fall light tends to be clean strong light that burns in low from just above the horizon. The durational effects of early morning Fall light come and go in mere minutes and the same scene photographed just two or three minutes apart can often yield quite a different image.
Here's a shot I took just this morning in our hallway:
Camera: iPhone 5s (High Dynamic Range mode)
Same as above, processed through NIK Software's
Color Effects Pro (Bleach Bypass) Filter
I really like both of the images, but the second processed file makes for a far more dramatic photograph.
Some images just work better in B&W, while others, like Francine's "Waking Up" image from this past Sunday's post, demand full color presentation to get its message across.
Hope you enjoyed my post....
