I promised a tutorial of one of my images. Kirsten Weiss commented on my last post and I picked her proposal and thought to make a tutorial on Otherside -image. I will try to make a tutorial on my photo Purple Haze also, but at the moment I don't know when it will be available.
So lets get started.
These kind of night shots are not possible if there is no fog. For this photo, I searched for a perspective to hide the streetlights which are in background to make it look more ethereal. After finding a spot I shot this with settings: ISO 100, f2.8 13 sec. If you want to make these kind of adjustments you should take the picture in RAW -file format.
The original file looked like this:
I merged the layers and added a Hue&Saturation adjustment layer and reduced the saturation with -12. I also edited the saturation for yellow with +5.
Added Vignetting with the Brush tool (with black and opacity 10%) in different layer with Multiply -blending mode. In the image Layer 4.
This is when I felt like the image was ready to be published.
Hope you like it and thanks for viewing.
Here is the final image.
