Several weeks ago while cleaning out my Lightroom Libraries I came across an image from in front of the Elks. I liked it well enough to hang on to it and post it here. It was also nice enough to run a test print of and put it in my bin of loose prints. Glad I did that. It’s become a new favorite for clients in the gallery.
In addition to a “found” image from last year, I also just put a new print on Sunset Metallic just to see what it looked like. Probably 3 weeks ago the owner of the Frontier Gazette stopped in and asked me to help him with a problem. Jersey Lillie’s was running an ad in the publication, and he wasn’t a fan of the image to be used. The composition was good, but there was no contrast. It was a pretty flat image, especially in print. He asked if I could run up to the bar and put my own spin on a new image for their ad.
So I did.
And the image came out wonderfully. First, HDR’d the interior. Second, some fine tuning in Lightroom. Finally a conversion to an antiqued setting that matched with the publication. Oh, and a little touch up on the tone curve as well.
Friday I printed this piece on Sunset Metallic before the Artwalk. 16×24″. Shortly after it hit the loose bin it sold. Best part? The reactions to this image in print have been extremely positive. I’ve had several folks ask if I was going to shoot each of the bars on the Row and make a series. Something to ponder for sure……..
So, there you have it. The latest prints available from RL Charpentier Photography!
