RAW Swap Results 02. contaxtwo turned in a soft and bright treatment to this shot of rusty tracks. I blackened the shadows and amped up the color of the weeds. Interesting results!
This is one part a RAW file swap that aurum-design photographer Kenneth has put together. I didn’t realize this until I was editing Ken’s photo to my liking, but I have always favored the dreamy, film quality along the lines of Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides. Cliche? Maybe, but I’ve loved that movie since it first came out on VHS. Yep, VHS. Kenneth went for a darker, contrasted version.
Phenomenal idea, Kenneth! I love the different perspective and how it totally changes the mood of the scene.
Check out Kenneth’s tumblr for amazing photographs of Milwaukee that leave me dumbfounded.
