[Motion Étude #1] Plage en blanc et noir

Front Page!! Highest position: 5 on Thursday, June 11, 2009


I spent four wonderful days with my friends. Many many positive thoughts and feelings, it went all great!

I felt really good. I've had the opportunity of shooting a big number of portraits, thanx to my pretty models!


Things are getting better and better, I feel stronger, I got an assignment as official photographer for an exclusive party on June 16th... Moreover, work is keeping my head busy, and there's plenty of partying going on!

Just feeling a little tired!


The shot

When I saw these low clouds, moving water I just couldn't resist and got some nice captures.

(stay tuned for my first experiments with my 10 stops ND)


The Processing




- Converted to black and white using a b&w layer

- Created 2 Overlay layers to adjust light

- Used color balance tool to improve tints

- Raised contrast a little to make the white more punchy

- Added Noise

- Resized

- NO Sharpening this time

- Framing and signature.


Take a look at it, LARGE on Black :

@ You all

Comments, faves and critiques are always welcomed!


I need, as always, honest feedback on this one, especially because it's an 'Étude' on motion. First 'real' attempt on that.
