Now available! Architectural Photography Course by Jim Welninski
In this video, we’ll cover the essential concepts for editing an architectural photo from start to finish. We’ll begin with necessary tone adjustments and try different blending modes to take control of the shadows. Later in the video, I will show you creative ways to use the blur and vignette filters to give the photo more depth. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave them in the comments below, thanks!
In this introduction we’ll discuss important concepts for photographing architecture from a fine art perspective. There won’t be any editing in this video but you will get visual examples as I cover the different types of architectural photography. We’ll discuss all sorts of aspects of shooting architecture; from lines to gear to lighting and more.
Black & White tones are great for creating a beautiful seascape photo. A powerful tool in ON1 Photo RAW 2018 allows for greater control and creativity in your photo editing. Specifically, Luminosity Masks allow you to selectively edit and apply effects to just the tones you want. If it sounds complex it REALLY isn’t. In fact, this technique will help your photo editing workflow become faster and more efficient. This works particularly well when editing landscape photos (or seascapes such as this one), and is perfect for enhancing a boring sky.
There are a few different ways to add interest to a dull sky without having to completely replace the sky when it comes to photo editing. A quick and easy way is to use the tone enhancer in ON1 Photo RAW 2018. It’s one method that works extremely well. If you’ve ever had a photo where you have a great foreground and subject, but the sky just doesn’t quite make the cut this is perfect. Remember, it’s not always necessary to replace the entire sky.
It has truly been an honor to serve as your Guest Coach this past month. I am thankful beyond words to be a part of the ON1 community, where I am surrounded and encouraged by so many who find their passion in the art of photography. Thank you so very much for having me!
Now that we understand the grids, let’s talk about how to use them while processing a photograph. First, we’ll take a look at how to import them into Photo RAW. Then I’ll show you how to set up the lighting in your photo so it works with the grid. After that, we’ll walk through a photo in Photo RAW from start to finish. See you on the inside!
Hello ON1 Plus community and greetings from Chicago! Can we talk? Like many of you many of you, I was frustrated by the idea of composition for a long time. No matter how much I read or how deep I looked, I could never get an adequate explanation of how to do it right. “Place your subject off center and use leading lines” was about as deep as it went.
Hello ON1 Community and greetings from Chicago! I’m super excited to be here and to be able to share with you a lot of what I know about fine art architectural photography. I’ve been working in this genre for quite awhile and I’m going to help you avoid some of the mistakes that I made. Great architectural photography is about so much more than finding a cool building, taking some photos, and digging into Photo RAW. So, what are we going to be talking about?
Recently we sat down with Jim Welninski of Altered Space Photography, and newly minted ON1 Guru. His story is both fascinating and inspiring and we’re so excited to share it with you. Jim has always been an artist. From drawing, to video, and now photography, he considers himself an artist who uses a camera. You will simply love his unique and amazing imagery.
Who is Jim Welninski?
I’ve been an artist my entire life. I began drawing at a very early age and kept it up until I realized I wasn’t very good at it. Music became the center of my life, and that’s how it was for a very long time. I knocked around in a few bands and then went into the technical side of the business as a recording engineer around 1980.
