Photo for the Week – 39 – Monochrome Fine Art

Canary Wharf

The topic this week is Monochrome Fine Art.  Monochrome fine art is just one of the things that I want to get into.  The above photograph is of Canary Wharf.  I have also processed two other photos, which I posted to Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week – Something New Photography Challenge.

Llandudno Sea Front


So for your submission, this week, join me on the fine art photography challenge.  Fine art is generally darkened images, showing a glimmer of light to the building or subject.

  1. […] Stackables ‘Tintype‘ formula: Old, scratchy, blurry – this formula works great if there’s something of interest in the centre, even if the original image is slightly out-of-focus as in my ‘monk walking towards a lit doorway’ shot. Although all formulas are adjustable, Tintype is very complex, and I couldn’t find a way to shift the primary focus over to this off-centre lion other than to change the radius of the ‘Tilt-Shift’ to include more of the image.These metal stairs in a Dublin museum uses the Tintype formula with the ‘Decay’ overlay removed to make it moodier. Winter Blues is like a faded ‘colour’ tintype, old-looking with soft blue tones. I’m rather fond of this look but not sure where I would use it. A cherub with the blues…Single-lane detour on the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland, run through the formula ‘Sands of Time‘, a gritty formula that only works once in a while. I find that the Sands of Time formula causes one side to be too dark and the other too light.On this stone circle in Ireland I adjusted the formula heavily in Photoshop, lightening the dark side and darkening the light side.The Spooky formula is too dark for many images, but when it works I like the way it conjures up cobwebs on a dark night. This old Mobulette is one of those rare images that worked with almost every formula I tried. (Ten different formulas applied to this image.)More of Ryan Photography’s Photo for the Week: Monochrome Fine Art. […]
