Androgynous emo -- before & after

Androgynous emo -- before & after

Sometimes I spend quite a bit of time stuffing around with street art photos, so out of interest I thought to post a before and after comparison so you can judge whether it's worthwhile. On the left is a photo straight out of the camera and on the right is the picture after I'm done processing it (or butchering it, depending on your point of view). They may not be the best examples but you can get the idea.

Of course the artwork itself is meant to be the main focus. My aim in processing is to try and highlight or enhance the artwork (or frequently only a portion of a larger artwork), but also provide some context. That's why I like to maintain or enhance the textures like the bricks and wall features because, for me, that makes it more interesting. It's also possible to go the other way and make it look like a cartoon or a painting on a plain flat surface, but I reckon that loses some of the character that's provided by the rough surfaces, textures and pipes.

I realise some people will prefer the unadulterated version, and that's fine. If you're the artist of the subject matter and you don't like what I've done to it then I apologise but, well, that's the way it goes. I believe art it open to interpretation and that probably applies to street art more than most. I certainly do appreciate the colourful works around town and I try and credit the actual artist(s) where I'm able to, and I'm happy to be informed where I've been neglectful or erroneous.

Why I shoot in the RAW

Sculpture by Vince Vozzo - "new man"

This is not a comparison between using a polariser and not using one, but more to show the advantage of using the RAW format in digital SLRs (and advanced digicams) when it comes to recovering highlights.

The left photo is what I could expect to occur if I had outputted straight form the camera as a jpg and the right is the output of a RAW image processed in DXO Optics 5.3. (Photoshop does a great job too as well as others)

RAW images need manipulation and massaging but they do have more scope for editing and getting the best out of the camera.
A RAW image does take up a lot more hard drive space and also means more work, so it isn't for everyone.

Yes, you can manipulate and fix JPG images but there is more scope for fixing in a RAW image. I am a lazy post editing person and prefer to get it as good as possible in-camera rather than spend time photoshopping.

and yes, I neglected to fix the horizon in this photo.

Canon PowerShot S100 2MP Digital ELPH Camera Kit w/ 2x Optical Zoom

Canon's latest crowning achievement, the PowerShot S100, packs a high-quality digital camera into the tiny, elegant body of Canon's Digital Elph series. With this item, Canon becomes the first to produce such a small digital camera with high resolution. The super-popular Elph APS cameras were favored because users could slip them into shirt pockets and take them anywhere. Now the digital camera has truly come of age with this ultraportable model.
The PowerShot S100 uses the same durable stainless-steel case as the traditional Elph series cameras. It offers 2-megapixel resolution for high-quality photos and prints up to 8 by 10 inches. Canon provides the PowerShot S100 with a high-resolution, low-distortion, all-glass aspherical 2x zoom lens (and a 4x digital zoom as well). The 1.5-inch LCD monitor displays most camera settings with easy-to-understand icons and minimal text. The PowerShot S100 features a 0.37-inch CCD that creates full color or black-and-white images up to 1,600 x 1,200 pixels (it also offers a 640 x 480 pixel image size). The built-in flash uses a light guide and does not need a fresnel lens or a large reflector, making the camera even more compact.
The PowerShot S100 stores images on an 8 MB CompactFlash card. Adobe PhotoDeluxe and PhotoStitch control image management, editing, compositing, and printing, while ZoomBrowser EX or ImageBrowser produce self-running screen slide shows, automatic e-mail preparation, and auto layout. The camera uses a high-speed plug-and-play USB interface, plus it has NTSC-out so you can view your photos on your TV. It's fully compatible with both Mac and PC platforms.
