Hey guys!

My name's Ben, I go by @unanimus_photo on Instagram, and I'm pretty much just getting started in the editing game. For this project I went back to my hometown in Des Moines and found an awesome parking garage downtown. The day was harshly lit so I used that to my advantage and added a bunch of highlights to the image while contrasting them with dark shadows. Hope you guys like it.

Here you can see the bottom half of the image is already dark and contrasty.

I built an edit around the photo, straightening and cropping, accentuating those bright highlights with a dark contrasty, endless pit-like look to the bottom of the photo, and finally added some magenta hues and a fade to those blacks.

Finally we have the finished product. I brought those shadows down a little more and faded them, as well as darkening those highlights a little to give it a more suttle vibe.
