Fujifilm UK just updated my ‘Through my Eyes’ portfolio at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.649284405098929.1073741847.385689698125069&type=1 – please take a look and share if you can.
This is Reid Anderson of the jazz trio The Bad Plus tuning up at the sound checks for a concert at the Turner Sims Concert Hall in Southampton. I wanted to create the feel of the jazz clubs of the 60′s so I took the image into SilverEfex Pro2 and applied a standard filtration to it to achieve this effect. The original was from the Fuji X-Pro1 using the 35mm lens at 3,200iso. I hope you think it works!
I had the greatest of pleasures recently of photographing English jazz vocalist Ian Shaw at the Turner Sims Concert Hall. I had photographed Ian a couple of years ago, but this time I was able to spend a little time chatting, and what a very pleasant guy he is. I hope he likes his photos:
All images were taken on the X-Pro1 using the 35mm f1.4 lens at 3,200iso, and then processed through Lightroom 4.4 and Silver Efex Pro 2.
Two new images that I hope you will like. They are, of course, totally different and yet they both show the power of the monochrome image in my opinion. I used the Fuji X-Pro1 and the 35mm lens (=50mm) to shoot the raw files, and then processed through Lightroom 4.4 and SilverEfex Pro2 for the black and white conversion.
I am working gradually on a series of urban landscapes, and this is another from that series – don’t worry, there are not 8,394 of them, that is just my reference number! This was taken through a hole in a safety fence around the site using my X-Pro1, and then processed using the new Lightroom 5 Beta (which I love). I darkened the sky down using neutral density filtration within Lightroom. The site is right in the centre of Southampton where a department store has been demolished to make way for urban regeneration.
