Neodigital Art | Victoriana
Neodigital Art is about taking images and editing them to create something artistic. Today, I’m taking images that you might associate with the Victorian era and trying to do some interesting edits. I’ve started with a narrow boat on the canal. I cropped the image a lot, so the subject dominates the picture.
My second photo was taken a little farther down the canal and is of a pump house. I have edited this a lot to give it a Victorian look.
I’m still getting used to my new camera. The pump house was too dark and this side of the canal was too light. The editing brought out the brick work on the pump house.
After over a year of dark skies and not enough light. I had more than enough on Sunday and different problems. This shot was at a different angle and so less light hitting the lens. You can see the design of the building better now and the craftsmanship that went into it. It’s build of red brick and blue brick.
You can just see the arched windows in this shot and how bad the state of the building is. It seems a shame to let part of our history die like this.
You can see how bright the sun was in this picture. I can make the picture darker, but then the pump house is too dark.
The sun was in a better position for this shot, but it’s still very bright. In retrospect I think the aperture of the camera should be narrow for depth of field and make the image less bright.
The weather is still nice and the sun is very bright. I’m going to try to take some shots with both cameras, the Fuji and the Nikon to do some comparisons. The Fuji is a bridge camera that take at 5 M pixels and the images are 72 dpi. The Nikon D3200 by comparison is nearly 25 M pixels and the images are 400 dpi. For these pictures, there isn’t much to choose between each camera. When it comes to taking pictures of people, which I don’t do often, the Nikon wins easily. Maybe, I’ll appreciate the Nikon more when I photograph the carnival on Saturday!
