4x5 Revisited _ Industrials 1

After submitting 12 images for the View Camera Australia Folio, it has caused me revisit all my 4x5 camera work. It has been a really interesting time and I feel re energised by the process and surprised myself by how much I have enjoyed looking at past work in detail. While I haven't changed things greatly, I guess my Photoshop skills have advanced over time, so there have been a number of refinement process. It is interesting that I recently remade / updated many of my PS actions and these have greatly sped up things. All the work I have been putting in to various luminosity masking in particular, has really paid off (I also purchased RAYA PRO, and while it is in the main, a repeat of many of my own actions, the layout and careful thought put into it by Jimmy McIntyre means it is a brilliant piece of kit, and really speeds things up)

I have decided to put up many of my 4x5 images, some well known and others that many viewers would be unaware of... maybe it is a sign of advancing age and trying to make things as organised as possible...


Starting with my 'INDUSTRIALS' ...

I was reminded recently about a quote by Confucious ... 'Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it'...

There are people who remain perplexed by my interest in industrial sites, but amongst other things, I have found beauty there, and hope my work is able to show that... so, in no particular order, here are some recent files...
