My Editing Process and Tribe Archipelago Interview
A couple of weeks ago, Tribe Archipelago reached out to me to take part in an interview for their blog. I was asked to answer a few questions and submit ten images to compliment the piece.
I have been using their presets (primarily the Wolf Pack and Raven Pack sets) as a base for my images for a couple of years now. I have other presents loaded into my Lightroom, including some of my own creation, but I always find myself coming back to thiers.
I lieu of the interview going live on their blog today, I thought it might be nice to share some before and afters of some of the shots I included in the piece.
All the photos in this blog have been shot with my Canon 6D and Sigma ART 35mm 1.4 lens. I only have the one lens at the moment, which pushes me to really make the most out of my own positioning in relation to the subject matter.
I’m a strong believer in using as little as possible as I think you tend to learn more about composition and other photography fundamentals that way.
I have established a bit more a defined style for myself these days where I tend to favour warm tones and dark shadows to add a sense of drama to my images. I only ever use the presets as a starting point and then tweak various things to evoke the right tone and emotion.
That being said, having a starting point to work from can be really helpful.
