This was shot on Saturday afternoon during the Creating Dramatic Images workshop I ran with Craig this weekend. We'd spent the morning in the classroom, discussing a whole range of different topics, and then wandered down to the beach for a couple of hours in the afternoon to shoot some material to process during Sunday's session.
One of the topics we covered during the morning session was pre-visualisation, particularly in terms of how to create a more dramatic or striking image from a less than interesting original scene. For example, while the image I've posted today certainly isn't dramatic, the post-produced version is a definite improvement on the original: two small figures, lost in a rather drab landscape. With the addition of a few curves though –to focus the viewer's attention into the image, and to add some colour – the image has quite a bit more impact.
This weekend's workshop was sold out, but if you missed out we're running it again in August: take a look at this page for further details.
