Lookup Szn

Hey wassup guys! I'm Brandon Watson (@brandonxwatson on ig) and I'm from Buffalo, New York. This is my edit for this class' project.

RAW IMAGE:

I shot this image in downtown Buffalo while wandering around for something to catch my eye. I'm a fan of look ups, so I decided to capture a few shots of this hotel just for test shots.

PROGRESSION 1:

I always edit in LR and to start off I played around with the tint and temp before I decided on a vsco filter to use. I wanted the shot to feel a bit warmer since the weather was pretty nice that day.

PROGRESSION 2:

Next, I wanted the gold and red in the photo to pop so I lowered my highlights to get the sky to look more blue. I also wanted to show the bit of a cloud that was over the building, the little details count for me. I also added some clarity and contrast, by this point I was close to being satisfied with where my edit would go.

FINAL IMAGE:

For my final image, I played around with the colors to get the detail in the building, I almost wish the sun wasn't being blocked by the hotel, but for what I was given I am very happy with how everything turned out. This shot reminds me of a comic book, like Daredevil or Spiderman. I feel like a villian would be somewhere plotting in here or something lol.
