Until this moment I have posted only pictures of my last trip in Greece and Meteora. I make a short stop before continuing with the pictures of my last trip, posting this photo quite recently made last month at my girlfriend’s house. The photo is one single shot made not too distant from private houses, although there was a fairly light pollution with some clouds the stars were visible, nevertheless I had to do a lot of work in Photoshop to bring out the “best” from this image.
What I Do
I made this picture by just one shot, I wanted to see if I could bring out the stars and a subject at the same time, I was not much to think about exposure and the composition because in reality the main photo was another (i will post it). This inattention has cost me a lot…I counted around 18 levels of Photoshop between before and after. Having made just one shot was a mistake, I had the problem of “dose” exposure between the portions of the pictures was too dark and the too light ones. This time even luminance masks was not very usefull, the whole image was treated practically only with the filters and Camera Raw. Oh well obviously in the picture is me 🙂
