Pinned toot

I'd like to share some photos of my holidays in Sitges, a town in Catalonia (Spain). I shot more than 200 photos in 2 days! So I expect to select 5 or 6 and share them with you :)

To start, this photo of in Sitges' seaport

Okay so I did end up processing the raw even though I said I couldn't be bothered: pixelfed.nz/p/swansinflight/45

Obviously it looks more processed, but got close to the look I was trying for.

I actually think I might like the unprocessed original more, with the contrast between the sky and the warm light in the barn. πŸ€”

My daughter Sara is an extremely talented photographer, and one thing I've learned from her is that sometimes you just have to take a photograph on its own terms. In that spirit πŸ™‚ :

How do you do, fellow πŸ“· kids?

This is my first post on photog.social, although I am not really new to the federated web. I have also been taking pictures for a while now.

A thing I did last summer was chasing monarch butterflies. They liked milkweeds and zinnias in our yard. I shared my excitement on this thread:

mastodon.social/@sajith/100421

I have started seeing them again this year! I think I will start a thread here this time.

I intend to post pictures of other things too.

Anyone know of a way to get to export the same image at two different resolutions, at the same time? I'm hoping someones made a plugin for it, so I don't have to.

Chatted with @Vyllibh and @54ward about some BW photos earlier and it made me wanted post a couple of mine.

@54ward @Rinkhals whether one should pay attention to such tool depends on what you want to achieve. Do you aim for a good photo from a technically point of view or an artistic one. In case you don't know him, there is a guy on Youtube making great videos on the artistic aspect of photography.
A video you might be interested in may be this on youtu.be/6gLEGl4klyE
I'm not sure though if it's the one I was thinking of. Internet here is horrible so I can't properly check.

Dunno about this one. Feels like it's missing something
Clues anyone?

@54ward @Vyllibh One of my favourite tools in Dark table is the tone Module. In the top right of the module it has an eye dropper and you can use that to find out where on the graph your subject lies. Then you can make sure your subject is properly exposed for the image you want, and you can change the tones of the area to make sure the eye is drawn to the subject.

@54ward @Vyllibh No, don't ignore them. They are definitely a great tool. The question becomes what kind of image you want. If you want everything exposed properly then that's a great way of doing it. If you want to draw the eye to the subject of your image then you may have to over or under expose certain areas. While yes, keeping the whole image properly exposed can be a great way to edit, there could also be a case made for why you might want to over or underexpose certain areas.

@54ward BW lends itself really well you contrast and textures. Have you considered increasing the contrast and seeing if you can make the man stand out a bit more?

@54ward nice shot! I really like the mans reflection in the puddle.

I played a bit around with the curves adjustment and sharpened it an tiny bit.
What do you think?
