New Bag

One good thing this week is that I have a new camera bog, Lowepro Messenger Bag bought from +B and H. I had credit that needed use before the weekend and it just happen that my little old bag broke. I would have preferred to get a second lens, a zoom lens, but money is really really tight right now. Well at least I have a new bag for that new lens, once I can afford one.

Car Shows and Chewable Plastic Foods

It is February and winter is definitely here. It is time to wish for summer to get here, a time when there is car shows around every corner and plastic foods to bring the nostalgia out of us.

Please pass the plastic ketchup for my plastic hamburger.

1958 Chevy Apache

Photographed at last year’s Hartford Fair and in that good old classic green paint is this beautiful 1958 Chevy Apache truck.

Post-processing:
Starting with the Basic panel in Lightroom, I applied the settings: Exposure +0.40, Highlights -88, Shadows +61, Whites +31, Clarity +47, and Vibrance +19. Moving to Detail panel and change Sharpening Amount to 74 and in Effects, change Dehaze to +13. Now let’s move on to Photoshop…

In Photoshop, I used my favorite plugin, Color Efex Pro 4. In CEP4, I applied the following filters: Detail Extractor (Fine at 73% opacity), Bi-Color Filters (Violet/Pink No.2 at 48% opacity), Color Stylizer (Soft Sepia at 59% opacity), Graduated User Defined (Sky Blue), Graduated Neutral Density (Dark Skies at 0 rotation to darken the bottom of photo), Graduated User Defined (Strong Orange at 60 degree rotation), and Vignette: Lens (Off-center). Back into Photoshop, I used a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to burn some green parts of the truck. Next, I applied a Curves adjustment layer to do additional burning of the truck including the windshield to finish it off.

Right: The original photo I started with.

Feeling Royal

I bet the Denver Broncos and their fans are feeling like royalty today after Super Bowl win. Maybe they need to take a ride down main street in this 1938 Chrysler Royal.

Btw, I am probably the only person who doesn't tune in to watch the Super Bowl and all that is part of it. LOL

We don't have cable TV, so we miss a lot of stuff. And we aren't sad about it either!

OH! That's What That Button Is For!

If you are like me, you don't use your camera that much during the winter. For that reason, one might forget what that button on top of the camera is for. Oh btw, it helps to point the camera away from you when taking a picture. LOL! I was wondering what I was doing wrong.

Thank You To All!

Wow! It just caught my eye at the number of followers that I have here on G+. I was expecting it to go down or something with all the G+ changes going on, but I guess G+ isn't a ghost town yet. I do get a lot more interaction here than on Faceburger, I mean Facebook. And my Instagram is slow at getting followers but hoping it will pick up. If on Instagram, look me up: joefrazeeoh (https://www.instagram.com/joefrazeeoh/).

Profile page: 29,018
Before & After Collection: 70,672
From Down Here Collection: 40,420
Color versus Black&White Collection: 29,110
Extreme BW Collection: 29,021

Obviously the Before & After Collection seem to be the big hit. I am happy people are enjoying it, it takes some time to create those posts.

Once again, thank you to all!

I'm also off to a slow start on Instagram, but not that surprised. I'm going to try to post 5x/week for a while to see what happens.

As for G+, I find myself with mixed feelings about communities. On the one hand, they let me engage in two passions without annoying people who follow me for one of them with posts aimed at the other (landscapes and politics) On the other hand, I see very few posts from the general stream or even my old circles unless I make the effort to seek them out.

G+ has changed for me over the years, with some of the people I interacted daily with either leaving or cutting way back. I've been online long enough (from BBS days) to see connections come and go. The fun part is when someone from long ago crosses my path again.

Girl in the Window

Sorry for being behind in posting to this collection. With having three other collections, working on building my Instagram following, and been recovering from a cold, I just been getting behind.

So anyway, I leave you with this shot I took in Bellville, Ohio. What caught my eye is the worn condition of the building. Painting peeling on the door and siding but a pot of flowers to offset it with some beauty...kinda of.

Lightroom Basic: 1933 Dodge

Photographed back in 2014 at the Annual Goodguys PPG National in Columbus, Ohio is this classic 1933 Dodge that makes you think of gangsters. Very well preserved and bullet holes I could find. But anyway, we are sticking once again to Adobe Lightroom CC for all our post-processing for this before & after.

Post-processing:
After cropping the photo to my liking, of course I started in the Basic panel. In the Basic panel, I applied the following settings: Temp at 6,581 (to warm up the photo), Exposure -0.70, Highlights -77, Shadows +79, Whites +38, Blacks -7, Clarity +54, Vibrance +19, and Saturation -20. These settings help give the photo a faux HDR as well as open up the shadows. Now moving on to Tone Curve, to open the shadows even more, I changed the Darks slider to +35. Next comes the Color panel, there I changed the Aqua Luminance to -51 to darken the details of the building, and changed Blue Saturation to +7 and Blue Luminance to -29 to dark the blue in the car. To warm the photo a little more, under Split Toning, I applied the following settings: Highlights Hue 20, Highlights Saturation 10, Shadows Hue 24 and Shadows Saturation 9. Moving to Details panel, I changed Sharpening Amount to 76 and under Effects, changed Dehaze to +29.

Now with the basic adjustments out of the way, it is time to do the final touch ups using the Radial filter and the Adjustment Brush. Starting with the Radial filter, I set the filter to darken the outside of the filter (negative Exposure and Black) and place the circle around the car so as to give the photo a vignette around the subject. A second radial filter was applied to blur (negative Sharpening) to soft the focus. Moving onto the Adjustment Brush, I used to the brush to burn (darken) the windshield, headlights, front fenders, front bumper and as well as the ground near the car. Also, I used the brush to sharpen (clarity) the headlights, hubcaps, and front fenders to finish off the post-processing.

Left: The final post-processed photo.
Right: The original photo I started with.

Story

Amateur Photographer, Post-Processing, Prepress, & Whatever
Introduction
I work in prepress for a small printshop in Central Ohio using Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe Acrobat. 

Photography is my main hobby for now and I enjoy photographing classic cars, historic old buildings, landscape, and whatever catches my eye. Software I use for my photography post-processing include Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, OnOne Software's Perfect Photo Suite, Nik Software's Color Efex Pro and Silver Efex Pro. Also, I am a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP).

Please checkout more of my photography and purchase prints from my SmugMug page.

Also, I have a few photos on my NAPP Portfolio page.

RULES Pertaining to my Photos:
Rule No.1
If you like to share my photos here on G+, there are three ways. First is the share button on bottom of the post (under the photo). Second is the Link to Post option in the Options Menu in the upper right corner (this is great if you want to share the post outside of G+ or email it to someone). And third, you can click on the Share in the photo viewer or whatever it is called when you go to view the photo in a larger view. The reason I ask that you use these options is so that people can see who's photo it is and where the original is located.

Rule No.2
I have no problem if you download any of my photos here on G+ to use as a desktop background on your computer, iPhone, Android phone, iPad, or Android Tablet. All I ask is that you don't go download crazy, but it does bring a smile to my face knowing that people like my photos enough that they want to see it on their desktop everyday.

Rule No.3
When it comes to prints like a picture on the wall, I do have photos on my SmugMug (http://jfphoto65.smugmug.com/) that you can purchase. But I do not have a problem if you print one out on that little printer you bought from Walmart and put in a little cheap frame also bought from Walmart as the photos here are not top high resolution for top quality printing. And again don't go print crazy, I would prefer you buy prints from through my SmugMug page and the money would go towards someone, that being me, who makes little for working at a small printshop.

Rule No.4
To wrap up, all I am asking is that you do not claim that my photos are yours or post them, print them, or share them in a way that would give others the idea that the photo is your property or that you took the photo. Keep in mind that I have the original RAW files and the original processed files. Also, I prefer you do not make a profit on my photos, you know, sell them, make prints and sell them on street corners, etc. Since I put the work into the photo, I should be the one making a profit, it's that simple. Let me state that I am into the photography not to get rich (but it wouldn't hurt), but as a creative outlet or hobby for me.

My favorite subjects to photograph:
-cars (especially classic ones)
-buildings (especially old ones)
-cityscape/townscape
-some landscape
