Did it ever happen to you that you took a shot in camera but visualized something totally different with your eye? Have you ever wondered how to turn a seemingly ‘ordinary’ image into a cinematic scene?

In this third article of the Lightroom Editing Series, we’ll turn a mundane scene of a New York yellow taxi into a cinematic-style piece of art. The picture itself was shot using a Fuji X-Pro1, 35mm f/1.4 lens at 1/125 sec @ f/1.4, ISO 400.

Photo Essay : New York Flashbulb Street Photography

New York City
Bike at night

Some may call it agressive, in the face, street photography, but when you’re in a city that is equally aggressive in using its lights to shine its nightscape, I think “flashbulb street photography” is well suited for the nightscapes of NYC. Obviously, a flash and slow shutter speed are necessary to achieve that look, but a detailed article on how to achieve this effect is coming soon (in fact, it is already scheduled for posting). Keep tuned to Photograph IO via Facebook and Twitter for the latest details!
