The Making of Images

The series of blurred colourful pictures of the "PROMENADE MOMENTS" was made using an Olympus OM-D EM5-II, with a tripod and remote cable control, at 1/6-1/10 sec at F22, focal length 60mm, ISO 200, no flash. The long exposure time and the high luminosity of the French Riviera resulted in highly overexposed pictures. To bring back the colours I used LIghtroom to increase blacks, shadows, vibrance while decreasing exposure, whites, contrast and clarity. All in all, I try to keep post-processing at a minimum and do not spend more than a few minutes for it on the pictures.

The pictures are not artificially composed or cut and recomposed - they are all natural candid non-posed photographs of people on the prom'.
