Yesterday afternoon me a few other people ventured into Newcastle for a little excursion and for once I got a few pictures I’m quite pleased with – it’s amazing what a few tweaks in Photoshop can do to a photo! I was trying to experiment with light and shadow a bit but as I discovered trying to do this in a hurry is not so easy – it would have been nice to take a bit more time over it.
Img 1. Probably my favorite photo of the day – I tried to purposefully place the sun behind the subjects head to create the sharp silhouette and capture the shadows created by the window on the floor.
Img 2. Here I wanted to capture the shadows and reflections going across the chairs and wall in the empty gallery. It didn’t really work but I like the low-level angle of it.
Img 3. I had to mess around with this one quite a bit and sacrificed some of the foreground detail to enhance the amazing sun-rays coming though the clouds. In the high-res version you can see birds flying around just above the bridge which look quite good.
Overall I took about 50 pics – the above are my ‘serious’ ones, I’ll post a few more ‘lighter’ photos tomorrow if I get time! More of the same (in a higher resolution) can be found in the photo gallery – please tell me what you think of them 🙂
