Transformation I
"Stepping Sand" by Baber Afzal

Since I have received some queries on how my images look unedited, I decided to make an album dedicated to such photos to show the amount of effort that has gone into creating such images. smile emoticon 

The Left image is totally untouched while the right is after focus and exposure blending 2 images together. 

Total time taken to create the image? 
12 Hours

A lot of time is spent in bringing out the right tones but most importantly to create more light in the image since in reality due to the haze, the sun's light is not strong enough. 

The other reason why it takes a long time is because every time I come back to my image, I find it a bit off and then I have to make some adjustments again. That takes the most time in order to achieve the right tones and colour. 

At the end, one has to be satisfied with the result by making sure it is exactly how you perceived it when you took the shot. Pre-visualisation is the key to success.

Stepping Sand - Photography by +Baber Afzal  www.baberafzal.com Here is another perspective I shot on the same day when I went out shooting with Daniel. This time I came across one interesting dune which had a step on it instead of a complete smooth slope downward. The texture on it is what really attracted me to it. The reason for me to choose such a perspective is because I wanted to highlight the step that existed on this sand dune along with the curves that complement it as well. - Baber Afzal

Look Above

500px: https://500px.com/photo/109903671/look-above-by-baber-afzal

This image was taken during a photowalk in San Francisco in the year 2013. Julia Anna Gospodarou was the one leading the walk along with Nathan Wirth and I was blessed to be a part of it too. Many other amazing photographer friends were a part of it as well whom I got to know at that time!

The following image is a composite of 2 images. The long exposure sky is a separate image merged into this image taken in San Francisco. Thought it was about time I worked on it.

The Arabian Sunset

500px:
https://500px.com/photo/110866085/the-arabian-sunset-by-baber-afzal

I am processing this image after 5 years. I took this in 2010 from the Index tower and you could tell that there were fewer buildings back then too compared to now.
I feel blessed to be one of the first ones to be able to shoot from this perspective as well before this rooftop got raped in the years to come. smile emoticon

There was a lot of haze that day but am glad I could pull out as much detail from this image.
