love urban photography. I don’t get out and shoot in urban settings as much as I’d like. Several years ago a friend and I went on a group “photo safari” to Adams Morgan in DC. I was so excited tonight when I looked through the next batch of June pics to find some to edit. Street shots!

Spoke – ProjectEdit365 – 15 June

I was definitely looking for lines and angles this day. I like the depth of field in the original (below), but in color it just doesn’t do anything. This edit was quick. I increased the clarity and contrast and then increased the shadows and blacks a bit to undo how dark things get when you increase contrast. I didn’t touch the grain because I like how grainy it looks.

I'm a photographer and homeschooler Dream = travel blogger. We move around every couple of years. That's fine, I love seeing different parts of our great country and the world. Great things: Jesus, traveling, photography, eating, sewing, scrapbooking, reading, shopping...not necessarily in that order.
