About the Image(s)

I took this image in New Orleans 2 years ago during the French Quarter Festival. There were many street musicians, other performers and artists on hand.

Camera Canon 6D, Tamron 28-300mm lens at 170mm. ISO 400, 1/320 sec. at f/9. The image was taken in contrasting lighting, therefore in Lightroom I adjusted the lighting as much as I could with the sliders (Exposure, Highlights and Shadows), then I used the brush tool to darken the highlights and lighten up the shadows more than was possible with the sliders.

I love this image. I just feel it needed a touch more oomph so I went into photoshop and went to image-adjust-vibrance-saturation and increased the saturation just a small bit only on the subject.   Posted: 10/03/2021 11:40:04
