Photography Collection: Fall 2013 by fox-orian Photography Collection: Fall 2013 by fox-orian
A collection of photos from earlier this fall I took on the day my good friend Derek Scearce visited from down south, and we walked around the Kendall/MIT areas and south Boston.

All shot in RAW, edited in Lightroom. Sony A77 and 16-50 2.8

Enjoy!

I love how your photography speaks volumes of the way you approach your own artwork, as well. From
the perspective to the color adjustment, it just adds so much to your artistic value. :)

Oh, and I'm looking forward to getting ahead with the Skillshare videos and eventually my project.
Can't be happy enough to learn from you, Sensei. :)

This be another reason why I keep photographing shit that doesn't have my family or friends ruining the image with their desperate attempt to gain attention.

And a nice camera isn't far out of reach! You can take photos like this with simpler interchangeable lens cameras like the Sony NEX-3N. I highly recommend that camera!

I genuinely thought this was your background artwork at first glance. That says a lot about your artwork AND photography skills. You are awesome.

One of my favourite things to see is how one's environment influences their art. That's why I always love it when you post photos. The connection is very obvious in your case. The first one totally looks painted by you.
I really enjoy the train tracks here. It's a small almost natural space in an otherwise very manicured environment. I know the fence is there because train tracks, but I like to imagine it's because people are starting to think natural vegetation and soil are scary. You know, all dystopian future-like.

I think I've said it before, but I absolutely dig how your visual aesthetic shine through in both your drawn art and your photo work. Sometimes I can't even distinguish between what's a painting or a photo (and vice versa) at first glance.
Then again, I'm a sucker for urban photography so I'm always excited to see your stuff. Keep it up!

Would you be able to make a tutorial on how you edited to first picture, that texture is often used in anime and I was really curious how they did that :3

95% of that photo is proper timing. The natural light that was spilling into the station that day was so intense, so perfect, I had to take a photo. Actually it wasn't just one photo, it was like 12. This was the best one of the lot.

The other 5% of that shot was color correction, (to introduce some blue into the shadows,) and a graded warm filter from the top to introduce the feeling of a warm glow, and that was about it.

The key to that photo, like most of my recent photography, is shooting with RAW and turning the contrast down to next to zero so you get a nice, neutral, high dynamic range image.

you know i spent a good 4 minutes on each of these debating on if they were photos or digital paintings. Most of them i had decided flat out were. And then I read the description and I am blown away. Tell your friend that he is freaking amazing at what he does. These are all breathtaking. They are so beautiful and perfect that I assumed they had to be paintings.

Thanks very much! But... tell my friend he's good at what he does? Not sure if you misunderstood, but all of these photos are mine! I took them and did all the post processing :) That one portrait is a photo I took of my friend Derek Scearce, he didn't take them.

Thanks still, though!

Great photo's. Could you tell some more about how they were edited?

 

I was wondering because something felt very strange about them. Then I realized the sky as well as the landscape are both very visible and there's a discrepancy between these in brightness (especially for the 2nd-5th photo's). It looks very cool, but I can't look at them too much after noticing the difference ^^;

These are all RAW photos, meaning I can pull an insane amount more detail out of every facet of them than traditional JPEG's. I shift around all sliders of these photos to somewhat extremes. One of the biggest tricks is that every one of these photos has their contrast slider turned all the way down to the lowest (or near the lowest.) This increases dynamic range and makes higher contrast elements such as the sky and the ground closer together. Increasing the blue-channel saturation makes the sky more vivid and deeper, as opposed to lighter / overexposed. Next, I separate the Red, Blue, and Green channels in hue to make all of the colors in the photo very differentiated. Colors get pushed to further primaries (all elements in the photos become more starkly red, green, or blue.) And lastly, to re-inrtroduce a bit of harmony, I warm the scene up in temperature and make the tint a tad magenta.

I clearly don't have your skills, but I walked down to where #4 reminded me of; it is similar in that a train track goes under a structure, but it ends about there. Toying around with Darktable (linux) to try and duplicate your method - obviously a little ways to go to get the method down. Don't worry, I'm all about seeing if Darktable can do it simply out of interest; not planning on trying to duplicate your style.
