Beneath an Ancient Sky by WayneBenedet Beneath an Ancient Sky by WayneBenedet
I am leaving on a trip to southern Saskatchewan tomorrow. I am hoping for some good opportunities in the badlands, but we shall see. I will catch up with comments in a week.

Do you ever use any filters Wayne?
Reply

WayneBenedet Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012
Always. A polarizing filter is standard for my work

Forgive me Wayne, I know nothing about photography. I've applied different textures and colors to my photos for experimental reasons. Sepia tones, etc. My skills are elementary at best; therefore I do not understand what is accepted or used by professionals.:hug:

Oh my... I probably should have checked that with you before I responded. It is I who should apologize. (I was also working on an iPod at the time, it is not great for good explanations and I tend to be too brief because of the limitations, please accept mt apology)

I don't use a lot of out of camera filters, because I prefer the old ways of filtering in camera. It is just a preference, in some ways what you are doing is far easier and gives greater control. I do though use a polarizing filter on all of my images and I shoot is RAW which means each image has to be hand processed. The polarizing filter gives better sky effects by eliminating scattered light, and it tends to intensify colours. I tend to underexpose just a bit to make sure that detail in the clouds is retained. But this poses processing problems because often the shadows are are quite dark and need to be lightened. There is one exception, and that is B&W. I always shoot in colour and if I want B&W or sepia I use a program to do that. My reason is that once the camera makes a B&W image, I can no longer get the colour back. The way I do it, allows me to have both, colour and B&W if I want them.

If you are interested in the process I use, there are a number of articles posted in my gallery under my ID section. You can take and use what ever you choose.

What an architectural beauty. It must have been a thing of pride (as well as wealth & purpose) when it was 1st constructed.

Amazing storm clouds overhead that add to the overall atmosphere of this photo.

What a cool Barn.

Did you do much processing? The colors/vibrancy is really punchy and interesting (I mean this in a positive way).

I teach processing at the college level I also use a polarizing filter and under expose which makes for better saturated negs

they tell me you can't get lost is Saskatchewan because no matter where you are you can see Regina. However, I am a bit vertically challenged so I may have to stand on the truck :D. As for sasquatch... it might just be too open.
