Here is my fourth and last entry for this months One Four Challenge. It was difficult trying to come up with something that didn’t mimic or go off any of the previous edits. This week I had to have a different mind set and was thinking of how to make this photo look more low key. I don’t think I quite got the effect I had in mind but it was difficult trying to make a low key effect with this photo. I ended up doing some basic edits in LR such as the cropping and using the graduated filter to darken up the corners on the left of the frame. I then exported it to Analog Efex Pro 2 from the Google Nik collection. After clicking on what seemed like a few hundred different presets I found something that came close to what I liked so then I fine tuned it a bit and came up with this. I will say it’s not my favorite edit out of the group but it does seem to have a bit of appeal to it. Now off to decide which photo to do for next month.
For reference I have also included the original RAW and previous weeks photos below.
