    I am so happy to announce we have published an article by Alain Briot.  His article Creating Artistic Photographs – Variation On RAW File explores how you can change the look of images using a RAW processor. We’re happy to have Alain with us and you can expect to see his work here on a regular basis.  Thanks, Alain!

    Alain, I’ve read many of your articles over the years but I’ve found none as interesting as this one. Food for thought, indeed.

    Very interesting and inspiring article. One thing I would like to know though is a hint on the technique used.  Was it achieved in raw converter (CO etc.) or in “photoshop”?

    I thought the idea of using three colors as bands across the image is an effective technique to paint in depth into the image. The original is flat so this works. The technique, I am sure is pretty easy to achieve in either Lightroom or Photoshop, using gradients with very soft overlapping edges and Color Fill with a suitable Blend Mode for Ps.

    Hi Dave,

    The color changes were done in Photoshop.  I thought I mentioned it in the essay but I may have left it out.  Eventually it is not about how I made the color changes but why, so that’s the reason I did not go into processing.  I wanted to focus on the artistic aspect rather than the technical.

    Thank you everyone for your positive comments.  I very much appreciate it.  I look forward to publishing many more essays on PhotoPXL!  We are off to a good start!

    Hi Alain

    Thanks for the reply, I will read the article again as I am sure I missed a lot on the first reading.
