If ever I’ve had a dream equally frightening as those with paranormal textures, it would be a fiasco at work. It happened this way.
The photographs that follow are from March of 2016, almost two years ago now. One can probably see that the images are that of a hibiscus flower, manipulated.
None of it would’ve been possible however without the inspiration of Tuba Korhan. I became aware of her work while musing over the once free Snap magazine app, courtesy of the producers of the same camera app. The images here are all but a flattering attempt. If you have the time, click on her name above to check her work. Apparently, she has a Flickr account, and by the looks of it, she went all out with the app and now I can’t figure out how she produces her images. Spectacular!
I myself forgot.

If it weren’t for the flower he mistook for food, the snapshot would’ve come out blurry as well, just like the rest of them. Flower saved the day!
Post-processing included a judicious straightening of the image because my tripod has its own notion of how a horizontal line should be. Classic chrome has a tendency to cool an image, and it turned out that it was just too bluish. So I warmed up the highlights a bit using a Color Balance adjustment layer and employing mask effected through Apply Image. I also lifted up the shadows on Zac’s face a tad bit. Then the usual sharpening and vignette.
Classic Chrome, XF35mm F2, Fujifilm XT2I shot Heisy using Classic Chrome film simulation that came with my camera. My original intention was for the two of them to be in this photo, but Zac just could not stay put. So, into the garage he went! I took a few shots really, but I prefer this over the rest. Kind of have to not go crazy with loading a lot of pictures here coz before I’d know it, I’ll run out of allotted space. I have planned to photograph other things, landscapes, seascapes, street, stills, maybe.
For now, it’s all about them dogs — dogscapes — test shots, getting to know the camera better while creating memories.
On the post-processing side, the usual … Photoshop: Curves, Vibrance, a little bit of sharpening, then created a fake vignette.
