Apocalypse - before after post production.

Published February 9th, 2013

Again and again I want to prove that sometimes (or maybe most of the times, in my humble opinion) Photoshop or any other software helps you to create some great mood. Here is the London cityscape taken from St. Pauls' church; taken around Christmas time when London was so grey and rainy, no colours or proper light.

Before and After

Published November 11th, 2012

Someone asked me to show the original colours of this amazing architecture in Toronto; as you see colours are not very attractive, however, the shapes and lines are absolutely amazing, that's why I had to make it more interesting and add few filters while I was doing my post production work.

SInce I am in Europe I revisited small village cinema in Ochkhamuri Republic of Georgia, unfortunately the building is even more damaged, has several holes on the roof and half of the floor is broken; after bagging the owner I finally got permission to take some more pictures, but was told to be very careful since the owner was scared that I might hurt myself.

Before After

Published May 23rd, 2012

I am continuing posting before after compositions to prove over and over sometimes post production does excellent work.

Let me know what you think.

Handheld two exposures processed in Photomatix Pro, noise reduced in Topaz DeNoise 5, B & W and selective colour achieved in Silver Efex Pro 2, zoom effect added in Topaz Lens Effect and completed work in Photoshop CS5.

Someone asked me earlier- "how you can achieve colour separation in silver efec pro 2? Here is the short explanation - first of all, when I take three exposures (RAW) using my DSLR camera I process them on photomatix Pro and always trying to choose realistic post production of the image. Photomatix does almost 60% of the job, then I bring tone mapped file to photoshop CS5 where I use plug inns -Topaz DeNoise (most my pictures are handheld and I have to increase ISO to get better results and Topaz DeNoise does absolutely amazing job), in CS5 will play with contrast and curves, don't worry about the rest of the image, pay ...
