Preparing a set of Images to use in a Photo Essay
A few years ago I was in Oslo, Norway, and I took lots of photos when I was there. There was one set of images that I really liked from that trip, but I never really used them. Recently when looking back over some old photographs, I realised that this particular sequence of shots would make a good photo essay, so I set about preparing them, and I decided to make a video of the process.
The images are stored as Jpegs in my overall main archive library which I manage using the software Mylio. I only had the finished Jpegs though, and I couldn’t get access to the original raw files. However, there was still plenty to work with. The images needed a few tweaks, including some changes to the white balance. The goal was to create a sequence that matched, so that it looked consistent and part of the same shoot. I discuss all this in the video, as well as how to export and upload them to my Photo Blog.
I have posted the final photo essay over on my Photo Journal blog. The photos themselves and the trip were from a few years ago now, and this set of images was shot using a Canon 5D Mark II (which I no longer have). I really loved that trip and you can see my original blog post on it here.
