Assignment: Diptych
Using images made this semester and not submitted for other editing projects, explore Profiles, Presets, Geometry, Masking (Select Subject, Select Sky, Brush,  Linear Gradient, Radial Gradient, ) and Healing on your images. Each image should have more than the basic light adjustments.

•You should use all the tools in LRM needed to make your images standout.
Crop, Healing, Profiles, Light, Color, Effects, Detail, Optics, Presets, and more.

When using LRM, remember to use versions. You can make multiple versions and choose one to submit as your final edit. I save versions as I work a file, so that I can step back if I make an edit I don’t like or I want to try it another way. Then I can evaluate the 2 edits and choose the one that works for my vision.

•Create an album Name the Album: Diptych - Add your name as Author
•Place the unedited version 1st and then the edited image next to the unedited image.

•Submit the 5 diptychs through Canvas as a LR URL. You will have 10 images in your album.
•In Canvas Comments add what edits you did to the images (Be specific) and why you think it worked for each image. Tell me what camera and lens you used as well. Remember I am Looking for advanced edits here

Color Profile - Modern 2 +adding some yellow for warmth- Basic Edits - Geometry to straighten the buildings at the sides.



This was shot with the LRM Camera Slow Shutter - I moved the camera for the look here. Falls into Abstraction.

LRM Camera - Professional - DNG,
Profile - Modern 2 - Basic edits - Healing - lots of Healing - Then went back and added Drama by pulling the blacks and shadows to darken the sidewalk and add darkness to the shadow.


This was Shot with the Sony A7III - 24-105mm.
I wanted to darken the sides and push the viewers eye to the walking figure.
-I went with a BW that had strong blacks and kept the highlight detail.
-Added linear gradients to darken the blacks on the right diagonal of the stairs and at the bottom left and top left street - 3 Linear Gradients.
-Then I used a radial gradient on the person a one that hit him and then all the way out to the drain cover - pretty bit.
-Next the brush to pull back more white detail on the wall behind the person. Its still bright but with detail. I pumped up the texture and clarity.
-Lastly with a small brush I pulled back the darkness at the feet and the covers on the cement. And pulled back some darkness on the light to the right on the stairs. This one took some work. I am drawn to the gritty feel here.
