Other various work (featured in tutorials etc)

While I'm on a roll, I figured I may as well post some more recent photography edited in Photo  ;)

 

Some of these you may recognise from the video tutorials:

Lone Purple by James Ritson, on Flickr

 

One of those nice surprises you get sometimes, I didn't think much of this photo until I started experimenting with blend modes - at which point it became very moody and striking.

Spinning Out by James Ritson, on Flickr

 

An abstract long-exposure shot of a spinning record. I was shooting some video for a personal project and decided to grab a few stills too.

Monsal Tunnel by James Ritson, on Flickr

 

A very wet day in Derbyshire, which kind of spoiled the view over Monsal Dale. There was this tunnel, however, which is really atmospheric with all the reflections from the damp areas.

Sugar Factory At Night by James Ritson, on Flickr

 

Shot at night, the initial image lacked impact until I brought in some brush work and blend modes - this resulted in the Creative Painting tutorial, where you can enhance colours in images with artificial lighting.

Robin Hood Hotel by James Ritson, on Flickr

 

A disused hotel building in Newark (Nottinghamshire), and I've brought some colour into the sign using brush work with blend modes (mainly Overlay, Reflect and Screen).

 

 

That's all for now - just wanted to share some work, hope you find it interesting!

Gorgeous work. The tunnel is my fave - I kept scrolling back to it. EVERYTHING in that shot works, if you know what I mean. Look at it again and be aware of how your eyes are drawn into and throughout the shot. Usually, non-Asian-language eyes do a "Z" motion on photos (or web pages) but the tunnel image forces a backwards "Z" (like a "5") on your eyes. Very cool!

 

Edit for explanation: non-Asian-language eyes is not meant as racist, simply refers to habits caused by left-to-right written language vs vertical written languages).
