Portrait of a Watusi-Bull
The Ankole-Watusi is a breed of cattle originally native to Africa. Its large, distinctive horns  can reach up to 8 feet. I find this cattle very impressive. Therefore I decided for a black and white image to bring out all the details of the bull, so it stands out by itself.It is one of my rare black and white, where I am not a real master.

Tutorium: Bildbearbeitung für Einsteiger und Aufsteiger
Mein neues Tutorium richtet sich an Einsteiger in der Foto- und Bildbearbeitung.
www.frankbramkamp.de/bildbearbeitung-fur-einsteiger-und-aufsteiger
Wenn man erst gerade mit der Fotografie beginnt und anfängt sich für Fotobearbeitung zu interessieren stellt sich schnell die Frage: Was sind eigentlich die Unterschiede zwischen z.B. Photoshop und Lightroom? Wie finde ich raus was ich brauche? Und wieviel kostet das ganze? Hierzu soll meine Übersicht der einzelnen Programme einen kleinen Leitfaden zur Orientierung bieten.
Viel Spass beim Lesen:

Dahlie in Schwarz-Weiß
Eine Dahlie im etwas speziellen Schwarz/Weiß Stil. Hierdurch werden die feinen Strukturen der Blüten besonders betont. Die Bearbeitung erfolgte vor allem mit OnOneSoftware Perfect B&W und Perfect Effects. Darüber hinaus wurde die Blüte von ihrem ursprünglichem Hintergrund getrennt und auf einen schwarzen Hintergrund platziert, damit nichts von der einzelnen Blüte ablenkt und das Bild mehr den Charakter eines Stilllebens erhält. Wer mehr über meine Fotografie erfahren möchte ist herzlich eingeladen mein brandneues Interview mit dem Düsseldorfer Magazin für Kunst und Kultur zu lesen, auf: http://www.rhein-duesseldorf.de

Dahlia
I rarely post images of flowers and if so, it should have something special about it. Here I decided for a black and white version of a Dhalia. I mainly processed it in OnOne Perfect B&W and Perfect Effects. To separate it from its original background is still some work, but for the upper part of the flower the new "Focus Area" selection filer worked quite well.

Wonderful Mallorca
I took this image on the Spanish Island Mallorca. The north-west of the island is wonderful for hiking and to enjoy the nature. Here I gave the image a painterly look. I think it fits nicely to the scene. Older images, that do not have top quality, may turn into someting really nice this way. I still experiment with this software.

High-Key Architektur Fotografie
Statt einem Foto zeige ich heute einmal ein Tutorium von mir. Ich hoffe es ist für einige interessant. In diesem Tutorium zeige ich, wie man einen high-key Effekt für Architektur Fotos erzeugt. Ich erkläre was man bei der Aufnahme mit der Kamera beachten muss und wie man es weiter in Lightroom bearbeitet. Einfach und verständlich erklärt zum nachvollziehen und selber probieren, auf: www.frankbramkamp.de/tutorium-high-key-architektur-fotografie

Dahlia in Black and White
For this image of a Dhalia I decided for a black and white version, which gives more attention to the fine structures. Something more artistic.
I hope  you enjoy the unusual style for a flower.

The post-processing will be in Lightroom/Camera RAW. It is easy to follow for everyone so you can try it yourself. I hopy you find it useful to you. Find my tutorial here:

Ready to Race ?!
Here you see a before/after of one of my recent composites. It is a composite image of a race car. I took the garage at a railstation in Belgium, which is super modern. The race car is from Motorsports World in Cologne, Germany, that I visited last year. Here the Pen Tool used to work best to make the cutout. To get more details in the floor I used Topaz clarity, which gives me nice control over larger and finer tonality contrasts. For the final color grading I employed Alien Skin Exposure 5. Due to that, I also gave an interview with Alien Skin on compositing recently. You can also find a tutorial on my composites at: www.frankbramkamp.de   where you can also find the background for your own use.
