High Contrast Dramatic Mono Conversion

I received (from Mark via email) a nice video tutorial on the workflow and editing that can be used to create moody and melodramatic monochromes well suited to architectural and urban photography.

Clcik here to watch the tutorial

Tools used by Mark in this video:
* RAW conversion software,(Pixmantec’s Rawshooter Essentials 2006)
* High Dynamic Range imaging software (DynamicPhoto HDR)
* Photoshop CS3
Also, the pictures were made with Canon 350D Digital SLR with Canon EFS 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM lens + sky filter (mainly for protection) + hood to cut down stray light. Look at the pictures.
Mark’s work is also exhibited at Masa Fine Art Galllery, Royal William Yard.
Thank you Mark for this brilliant tutorial and magnificent photos!


Mark about the world in he’s photography:
“The back streets and the docks, this is where people have lived and worked through Plymouth’s history. Once these have been razed and redeveloped, part of the our heritage will be gone.
The pretty places and views will be recorded, but to many people this is the real Plymouth, and deserves to be remembered. My aim is to show things as people may not see them, to give a different viewpoint. I like secret spaces, lost spaces, which are in the middle of communities but which people just pass by and don’t really notice.”

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
