This week I wanted to share a black and white image that I’ve just processed.
I shot the original image back in 2011 using a Canon 5D MKII with 17-40 L series lens. I had the camera mounted on a tripod with a 2 stop ND Grad positioned on the sky. The exposure was 0.5” at ISO50 and f/16.0.
The colour image doesn’t look like much at all. I would even say that it looks very dull which is probably why I’ve ignored it until now. In fact, the only reason I decided to process it was because I needed an image for my latest YouTube video.
When I started the processing, I didn’t expect to achieve this result. And even though I only used this to demonstrate three techniques in the video using Nik Silver Efex Pro. I do like what they achieved.
I wonder how more unfound gems I have lurking on my hard drive.
If you want to watch this video (it’s only around 7 minutes) you can find it on YouTube at https://youtu.be/vHzT2XiDS0E. And don’t forget to subscribe if you like it. I have another video planned for next week working with the Nik Collection on a colour landscape.
I hope you like the image, video and have a great weekend.
