Talke Photography has just signed a contract with Getty Images. Currently 6 photos have been chosen and possibly more to come. As a photographer, it is a great pleasure to have your photos noticed. This is why I have this blog Places 2 Explore! I will soon have to delete the entires that included these photos once they have been finalized with Getty…they soon will have exclusive rights. It is a nice addition to my portfolio! Hopefully one day these photos will be worldwide or make it to a magazine cover!?? Nice to dream. Any cool placements and I will keep you advised. There are millions of photos at Getty…it is still great to be included!
NIKON D300, Nikon 12-24, Topaz Adjust
Here is another shot from the Prague Castle – St. Vitus Cathedral. After the security guard told me no more tripod usage…I had to go hand held. I knew 5 exposures hand held in low light was not an option. So amazingly I took normal photos and not HDR! I could have tried a single raw filer HDR process, but since I purchased Topaz Adjust from Topaz Labs…I decided to give a try! Topaz Adjust is very cool. For those of you that want a one click HDR-like photo…Topaz Adjust is for you! It is a plug-in for $49.99. Very cool settings and you can have fun!
After your file is Topazzed (just made up a new word?)…you will be impressed. Just go to their site for a free trial. With this shot…I processed it in TA, then put it into Silver Efex Pro for B&W. For some reason, I am liking B&W more as it gives a nice contrast. The color version was nice as well! It may not meet Ansel Adams Zone System perfectly..but the range is not bad. Enjoy!
