More from my Solo series – candids of strangers captured out and about with my point and shoot. All have passed through my Sagelight software program to a greater or lesser degree.
Chalk Formation and Night Duty were run through a filter to smooth the image, simplifying the shapes.
Right Angle had a painterly effect applied to it which I then adjusted to my own vision for the image, an impressionistic feel.
In Humpty Dumpty I adjusted the threshold of the background, flattening it to look like a painted backdrop.
Click Click was also smoothed a bit, influenced by Alex Colville’s work.
The others are just touched up to enhance a bit of detail or delete anything that to me detracts from the image. Cropping is important in each of them, trying to get the ‘right’ composition.
I also have a Couples series 🙂 – also candid captures of strangers.
