Airbrushing Memories in Ocean City, Maryland
Last year while in Ocean City, Maryland I tried to focus on some of the smaller aspects of the resort town. On the first trip in 2012 I was trying to get all of the large landmarks that make Ocean City the town that it is. I still had a couple of those on my list, but I wanted to also dig into the details of a town like this. Custom printed t-shirt stands can be found all along the boardwalk. While my wife and step-daughter were picking out a shirt I was watching one being made. I decided to capture a small moment of this process.
Processing in Lightroom 5 With a Trey Ratcliff Preset
For this photo I wanted to do something different. It was just a snapshot so I wanted to use my processing to tell the story. For this photo I used a Trey Ratcliff preset called Dramatically Hairy Chippy. It gives photos a look that I really like. It is not for every photo, but it does have its place. After applying the preset I increased the highlights and blacks a bit. I also slightly increased the vibrance as the preset cranks both the saturation and vibrance way down. I wanted the colors on the shirts to pop a bit more. After those small adjustments the photos were ready to post to SmugMug.
Nikon Coolpix S9500 Review
This photo was made with my old Nikon Coolpix camera. Yesterday I wrote up a small review on the camera if you want to see my thoughts on it. You can read the full review here.
This image and all of my others on my website here are now 50% off until Labor Day. I thought that after the long winter that we endured a photo sale was in order.
