January Squares: Golden Light

This photo, shot with my iPhone, caught my eye because of the light:

ISO 200 f/2.2 4.15mm 1/33sec

When it came to the edit, I wanted to also accentuate the golden tones. It has the Luminar Look, Dripping in Gold added to it and a vignette:

January Squares: Plenty of Sunlight

Just to prove that the sun does come out in England because it is a bit hard to believe this is possible this morning, I have this photo in my archives:

ISO 25 f/2.2 4.15mm 1/4525 sec

For the edit in Luminar, I started with the crop. I’ve boosted the shadows and the luminance slider on green. Then I added a vignette:

January Squares: Grounded

I come across some interesting things while I am out walking. On this walk it was a small private airstrip:

ISO 250 f/11 24mm 1/1000 sec

These two small planes looked pretty much ready for flight. There were a few others with tarps and whatnot that looked like some prep would be needed before they took to the sky. It was a beautiful day and I really like the expanse of this original scene. I decided though to tell a different story with this particular edit:

ISO 25 f/2.2 4.15mm 1/506sec

Much more about just this one plane. The Luminar look applied to it is called Aerial Dramatic. Though when applied to this photo I think gave it a feeling of nostalgia and a hint of abandonment. I’d be curious to know if it struck you with that same feeling?

January Squares: Moonlight

One of the fun things about this January Squares challenge has been to the opportunity to edit photos in a different way and revisit files.  Today’s file is one that was shot in March of last year:

ISO 100 f/6.3 120mm 1/250 sec

Shot from my backyard with my Canon 80D and the longest lens I own which is a 70-200mm. I started by googling recommended camera settings and gave it a try. Not bad I thought. Here is the resulting square edit:

ISO 100 f/6.3 120mm 1/250 sec

There is the obvious crop and in Luminar I added the Natural look.

January Squares: Mislight

Mislight: To lead astray with a false light. Frankly, I felt like this trail marker fit that description:

ISO 25 f/2.2 4.15mm 1/33 sec

Wait, which way were we headed? Sometimes when I am editing in Luminar I pick looks to apply based on their name. For this one, I thought a look called “Road Tripper” was appropriate:

January Squares: Ampelmännchen

Or literally, little traffic light man:

ISO 25 f/2.2 4.2mm 1/422sec

I took several photos of these pedestrian traffic lights while in Berlin, just because they are different. For my square edit in Luminar, I added the Enigma look. On another layer, I boosted the green luminance and sky enhancer and added a vignette:
