When The Photographer Isn’t

We entered Glacier Bay early in the morning under heavy clouds. Add the motion of the ship and I was faced with several challenges that I wasn’t prepared for. A number of what I thought were interesting shots wound up looking pretty sad on the LCD screen. I kept shooting thinking that I might be able to make corrections in Lightroom but a good image proved to be elusive.

So I fell back on a technique I’ve used to make an uninteresting photo look a little more interesting by emulating an artistic painting look. I’ve posted some of these efforts in the past and have written about it in the following posts, linked¬†here¬†and here.

Other examples are here and here.

In the two photos above I used the Oil Paint filter in Photoshop CS6, the BuzSim filter in Topaz Simplify 3, and Glamour Glow in NIK Color EFEX Pro 4.
