Make or Take that photo your client wants…

Posted by Mike on April 6, 2009

In this case you have to make a photo. The real look of this warehouse type office building is not that great. The pavement is poor, and power lines are everywhere…

So you make a better photo from 10 exposures over 90 minutes of when the sun was going down. Post included layering and masking and color manipulating into one pretty good one.

nw kidney center kent, wa

In response to a request/comment here are the layers used to make the above picture:

_MG_0994

_MG_0994b

_MG_0994c

_MG_0994d

_MG_0994e

In exposure one you can’t really tell but the bushes are lit up with car headlights.

There is aproximately 45 minutes between 1st and last exposures.
