Just a quick shout to anybody in the general vicinity of Southern California — A few of us are hanging out at Venice Beach on Saturday, October 25, 2008. We’ll meet up at 3PM near the “Sausage Kingdom“. We’ll stick around until sunset, then leave before it gets dark (and scary).
If you’re in the area, come hang out and shoot some photos with us. Nothing formal, just a couple hours of walking around and soaking up the atmosphere. If you’re planning on coming out and you don’t see us (or if you’re late), don’t hesitate to give me a call at 208-659-2901.
I found this beautiful lady in Venice Beach. She didn’t say much, but I think she was into me. Don’t let her distant stare fool you, she had quite the personality. Underneath of her “I’m sexy and I know it” facade, she’s screaming for attention. Because she is, after all… abused and ignored.
There you have it, straight out of the camera.
Minimal processing for white balance and exposure (using the “Auto” setting in ACR).
I used the technique from my “Redscale Process” described some weeks ago. After adjusting the curves, the blend mode was set to “color”.
Again, from the mentioned Photoshop technique. Opacity set to 20% and blend mode to “color”.
Added some contrast to make it a little more punchy. Blend mode was set to “luminosity” to preserve previous color adjustments.
Now if I could figure out how to create the same effect in ACR I’d be pretty clever.
