Photography Archive Invasion Project – Week Ten

This is one of my favourite images for this project! Photoshop was never opened for this one, I only used Lightroom. The background was simply over exposed using the adjustment brush to make it completely white. I converted it to black and white in lightroom and bumped the clarity slider pretty high to get all of the detail.

This project allows me to take a mediocre image (at best) from my archive and try to edit it so it looks good. I plan on doing one image a week for now and see how things go. This project forces me to go through all of those old images in my archive and sharpens my editing skills.

I have tried to come up with an original personal project for some time now and believe this is the one for me. If you are a photographer reading this hopefully it inspires you to attempt an original personal project of your own.

Here is the criteria I am using for this project:

  1. The original image must not be from a client shoot
  2. The image must look ok, not great
  3. I only get 10 minutes to edit the image (In one program only)
