Airport 2010

I'll admit it - I'm really not one for post-processing (or even processing) my images. Or at least I wasn't. I'd had this philosophical block, around making my images stay as they were, letting the picture I took tell its own story. But then I started cropping, and there was no way back.

Post-processing tools have become so much easier to use recently, with all sorts of effects built into smartphone camera applications, and you've seen me starting to play with some of the tools on my iPhone that process images then and there. I've been having a lot of fun with these tools, and I really do think I should start learning how to use Lightroom and Photoshop more.

Anyway, here's one that didn't come out quite the way I thought it would. Taken using Camera+, it's a digital zoom of an A340-600 in the Putney skies, passed through Camera+'s pseudo-tiltshift processing routines. The result is grainy and posterised, but y'know, I really do like it. There's some sort of 1970's paperback cover feel to the image: a newspaper black and white image screen printed onto a bright turquoise backdrop.

I send everything through Lightroom, and recommend it. It's not only a good way to catalog and keyword, but provides all the post-processing you might want. (Cropping, exposure and white balance adjustment, sharpening, etc.) Photoshop is only worthwhile if you want a behemoth for things like compositing, or putting type onto photos, and things like that.
