Adding a frame


A powder paint effect of the River Derwent at Cockermouth in Cumbria.

Camera: Canon EOS 70D
Lens: Canon EF-S24mm f/2.8 STM
F/Number: f/7.1
ISO: 100

Focal Distance: 24 mm
Shutter Speed: 1/640 sec
Software: Adobe Lightroom Classic and Photoshop
Photographer: Bren Ryan


First of all, when I started processing this image, I knew I wanted black and white. Then by accident I clicked on an Infrared Preset I downloaded years ago. And I loved how it made the white building just pop.

Anyway, just by chance, I wondered what the image would look like in a frame! So, I went to the Print module in Lightroom Classic, created some margins around the image and then set the page background to black. I didn’t want to have the image within a mount so this was the easier way of doing things.

I like the contrast between the dark frame and the white building. Normally, I am not one for infrared photography, but I’m glad I made my little accident and clicked on the wrong Preset.
