BLUE HOUR ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND PROCESSING

On Tuesday, 10/25/16, BCA Photo Group's own Edmund Prescottano gave an informative presentation on Blue Hour Architectural Photography to an interested crowd of about 25 members (and one guest). This was part of our regular Technical Series. He talked about choosing subjects, when and how to get the shot on site, and post-processing in Lightroom and Photoshop to arrive at the final image. Edmund had taken a course on this topic taught by Keitaro Yoshioka at NESOP (New England School of Photography). 

Edmund opened the talk with a slideshow of some of his work. Check it out here: (position your cursor within the window and scroll down to view the images)

He then gave his Powerpoint presentation:

And here are a couple of his before and after shots. The 'before' is what he captured in camera, and the 'after' is the result of his Lightroom and Photoshop processing. During the presentation Edmund demonstrated his process from beginning to end on several images.
