The new software I got for doing videos is really fun to play with and one of things I have been enjoying is recording the screen when I am processing an image. I did a long recording where I talked out loud what I was thinking and what I did to the image. If you want to view that there are instructions at the end.
This is how the image looked when I started working on it. I love this building, it is very grand, though it is one of those buildings that the insides were taken out so they could rebuild it. I don’t know how much of the interior remained, I suspect it is just the facade and the foyer. Though, the foyer is pretty amazing, I love going in there and just looking. It is quite breathtaking.
Then the image ended up looking like this.
Not a lot of difference, but I did try to get rid of the people that were in the foreground a bit. I like the lighting in it, and I like comparing the before with the after, it is quite nice to see how an image can be transformed. I think the first image was more a snap of the outside, whereas this one looks more in keeping with how they want people to view the building. Elegant perhaps.
Here is the video I did of it.
That is the sped up version. The long version goes for just over 30 minutes. If you would like to see the full version so you can see what I did, then you will need to press the buy now button and pay the $3. Then I will add your YouTube name or email address to the video and you will have access to it. Please think of this as a way of helping to support me so I can continue doing this for you.
