I’m revisiting my archives, and sifting through the images from the past. I am doing this for my new portfolio/stock site, Billy Sauerland Photo.
I also recently have finally purchased Lightroom, and with this am learning some new editing procedures. I am also taking advantage of some presets that I have gotten from David duChemin via his latest book The Print and The Process. I have been a big fan of David’s for a long time. The first book I read of his was VisionMongers, and since then I have kept an eye on his site and what he is up to, for knowledge and inspiration.
Now the image above was captured while I was on a trip to Alaska, with my mother and niece. During this trip we had taken a tour of the Kenai Fjords National Park, with a local company Kenai Fjord Tours. During my recent archive diving I came across this image from that day on the water. Looking for an image that might benefit from one of the presets that I had downloaded I set to work on it. I settled on Venice Cool, then I tweaked some of the sliders a bit until I reached a point I was happy with then I exported it as a PSD then continued editing it in PhotoShop, to I had what you see above.
