Photo of the Day
By the time this is posted I should be in the air. Today I am headed to Ocean City, Maryland for a week on the beach. This will be my second trip out to the Maryland coast so I know what to expect. I had a great time last year making pictures all over on the boardwalk. Now that I know the area a bit I hope that I can make some interesting pictures this year. I have some ideas to try, but of course on a vacation things can change at any minute. For some reason I really seem to like posting airport pictures on the day that I will be there. I guess that it keeps me making pictures in airports to pass the time.
I really wanted a nice picture during our short stay in Dallas. The only problem was that we would be in the airport the entire time. I decided to try and see what I could do in the terminal. I liked the idea of trying to blur the people moving along quickly as they do in airports. I had to stay very still for nearly a half second to get this look, but I think that it worked out.
This photo was processed in Silver Efex Pro after being exported from Lightroom 5. The lighting in the airports usually gives me fits so I lean towards black and white every time. Silver Efex Pro is a great way to get a great look with your black and whites. I find a preset look that I like, and then use the sliders to make it pop for me. I am glad that NIK lowered the price for the suite so that I could add it to my collection.
