    Mark what kind of filter did you use to make the sky stand out so much? I’m curious cuz on Black and White film (what I use) the sky tends to come across as white.

  2. I love that I found your work at the UBP’10 and I get these beautiful images in my RSS reader. I’m not a photographer by any stretch of the imagination but I love well composed images that evoke inner calm.

    Thank you!

    I use a digital SLR and the process them to black and white in Photoshop. But if you put an orange filter on the lens this will darken the blue in the sky and keep the details of the clouds. If your shooting color film you could use a polarizing filter and be able to select how dark you want the sky and reduce or remove reflections.

    I’ll go into more detail on this in the first Viewfinder article on Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by.
