This is a personal blog about the things that I enjoy and inspire me. Most of the images in this blog are not my own. I have tried to reference sources the best I can. There are some photos of my own, including some of artwork that I've made.
I'm a born again student at 37, finishing my final term of a university undergraduate arts degree. I always aspire to do more, whatever that might be. Sometime in the future I may pursue a Master's degree in Landscape Architecture or Planning.
As it is world book day today, I thought I would do one more before and after of one of my favourite photographs that I have taken recently.
The key here was to bring back the detail in the pages. Minimizing the highlights and exposure, thus brought back the magic of the written word, especially the page caught by a gust of wind.
The sepia tone really rings well with the subject. However notice it is through the involvement of split toning. The highlights appear a sepia tone through a light orange colour, however the backgrounds and shadows have a cooler appearance thanks to a dark blue.
