London fireworks night rooftopping – I knew all the fireworks were going to be outside of town but I still managed to forget my long 300mm lens.
Just got back from a great London night shoot with my new toy a Nikon D800, but had to stop shooting as my battery ran out. Was supposed to be 5 or 6 of us but I ended up shooting on my own. I only have one FX lens a 50mm prime.. so expect to see lots of 50mm shots during the next few weeks
Im used to doing these selective colour type effect the manual way in Photoshop where you just brush in by hand with layers. It’s very boring that way and tricky getting it right. While playing with OnOne Phototools 2.6 I came across this effect that I’d not seen before. It’s a little hit and miss as you need bold colours it can pick up easily but the skin/people option worked really well for this photo and so easy!
I generally spend a fair bit of time removing ghosting people from my photos but decided to go the otherway with this one. This is a nine exposure shot in London where it was very busy with people moving around.
