I’m guessing that if you are reading this, you can relate to what I am going to say. It’s a busy time of year. For me recently that has meant I have fewer opportunities to take pictures and edit them. Like everyone else, I do the best I can. I take pictures as often as possible, which is what led to this photo.
I took this a few nights ago at a local park. I just happened to be there for another event, and had my camera with me. My thought was to do a bracketed exposure, but I didn’t set my camera correctly, and so I just had a single image. In Aperture I created two other versions of this photo and changed the exposure value on them. So then I had three photos each with a different exposure value, -1, 0, and 1. Then I put the three into Photomatix to make an HDR image. Of the different versions, I liked a color version best. So I exported that back into Aperture. Then I changed my mind. About the color that is. I converted the image into sepia and the result is what you see above.
