I’m in a bit of a gloomy mood today, not only for yesterday’s depressing World Cup loss of Team Germany, that was well deserved and does not leave much room for any hope of going very far in this tournament.
I had this post on my launchpad for quite some time now. Trying to look at New York City in a very different way, I took a creative approach in post-processing. After monochrome conversion of my Olympus RAW files in Lightroom Classic CC, I played with selective blurring and darkening to create this moody series about some ironing NYC sites. To see them all continue after the jump….
As written many times on this blog, the work in the digital darkroom for me is an essential part of my photography. I need this creative playground to help clear my mind in an almost meditative way from the pressure of the job that pays the bill.
I had doing this kind of post-processing on my mind for quite some time. Let me know what you think of this series in the comments, I would really appreciate feedback.
Wish you a great week!
