Experiments in Black and White

I have been playing with converting to Black and White and using luminosity masking to enhance the images. I have been using Gradients map adjustment layers with additional stops and masks to enhance the conversions. Then luminosity masks created using the ADP Pro V3 panel to enhance different tonal areas.

Photoshop – image tidy and object removal

I have recently been watching tutorials by PHLEARN at phlearn.com . The latest series was ‘How to Remove Anything in Photoshop’ as part of my continued practice at Repair and Restoration of images old and new.

To practice what I had seen I decided to clean up an image I took on a recent visit to the Walker Gallery in Liverpool. Can you spot the changes?

RSPB Leighton Moss iPhone Digiscoping Trial

Bootstrap 4 and Backlight Pangolin

Both my main Photography website and my Nature and Wildlife website have  now been re-configured to use Bootstrap 4 (beta3) and Backlight Pangolin for image galleries See theturninggate.net

I have also subtly changed the design of my Photography website to distinguish it from my Nature and Wildlife site. Both have been given a new colour scheme especially the image galleries.
