Isaac Newton said, “Light, NOT Objects, is the Source of Color!” The impact of fine art photos can range from dull to dramatic.Our portfolios are designed to show Enchanting Light. Many images are incorporated under the theme Creating Fine Art Magic – CFAM!
In the Four Corners, sw United States, Magic’s impact is best at dawn or dusk, after storms, and at other special times. CFAM has many photos in each portfolio. Taken over 5 years, images have been re-done using the latest raw processing techniques. We start in Lightroom, as our catalog and global tone mapping software. We create HDR images using Nik’s HDR Efex Pro. Photoshop is our trusted workhorse for finalizing maximum impact!
Local tone mapping is accomplished thru masking, blend modes, and color changes using the HSL (Hue, Saturation, and Luminance) panel.
