No Color Within the Lines
Sometimes a color photograph depicts the scene but misses the story. The main subject may be lost in an array of clashing colors, or bright hues might obscure a subtle message or mask the somber tone of a setting. These photos were processed with templates I customized from an Adobe Lightroom plug-in called Analog Efex Pro. With this plug-in, a photographer can (supposedly): ” Recreate photos from a golden age of classic cameras, lenses and film effects.” All of the images started as full color photos that didn’t quite depict the mood of the moment. I leave it to the viewer to decide if the templates did their job. Most of these pictures were taken in Southern Appalachia, but I’ve included a few from elsewhere for contrast.
