I’m so pleased to be part of Leanne Cole’s (http://leannecolephotography.com/) Black and White Challenge on Tuesdays. Thank you, Leanne, for coordinating this! I’m not sure hers is up quite yet….I think I usually end up posting this first. I’ve sent her the link to include with her own image, so hopefully it will be up soon!
Today’s post shows a building in San Francisco that I originally took around Christmas time. First, I converted this image three different times in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 (neutral, high key and low key) and layered them in Photoshop. Next, I masked them to expose and hide what I wanted and then burned/dodged here and there to hopefully create a pleasing image. (Thank you to Mabry Campbell http://mabrycampbell.com/ for giving me this B&W processing suggestion back when I created my “Trees in the Fog” image.) I’ve gotta say…Leanne & Mabry, you two ROCK!
