I like photographs where there are likeness, not only in a direct way but also in different conjugations. You know that I’m stingy with words…so a picture is worth a thousand words….so please see the following examples 🙂 In this pictures the likeness & similarities are clear: I insert some highlightsto indicate what captured my attention.
A little optimization of the Classic Chrome preset of Lightroom: just a little change on Clarity, Saturation and Tone Curve. At the end of the post the link to download the template. To install in Lightroom: right-click (win) or ctrl-click (Imac) on user presets and then choose import.
One of the way to learn how to take a good shot is the following: look for a very bad, ugly, nasty, unsightly, foul, unpleasant place ( in your home too , or in another place ) and try to make it beautiful🙂 In every place there is a hidden nice, lovely, little side…it’s a very good exercise of composition to find it.
I found in my garden some flowers…Ok, they are not very unpleasant..but I think that they are quite meaningless. So I tried to “transform” the picture in a “pictorial” photo, in a “sort of” painting.
More contrast, more light and a lot of color saturation ( and a little crop )…Now they are very beautiful flowers 🙂
