We’ve been working hard these last couple days and we have a day to ourselves before the rehearsal tonight at Casa Santo Domingo. I got up early and took a tuk-tuk to the Cero mirador for this view of Antigua. My driver reminded me of how dangerous this area can be at times but I didn’t see anyone. I set up for some HDR photography and waited as those clouds passed by volcano Agua in the background. I knew exactly the look I was going for, which certainly helps when setting out to do this. I wanted an old, antique look for the photo to go in Ashley and Carlo’s wedding album.
After shooting the overlook I hiked down and found the perfect, crumbling, faded, paint-splashed wall on the side of a shop that I wanted to layer into my shot. From there is was Photomatix Pro, PS4 and NIK that gave me the exact look I was shooting for.
Let me know what you think and I’d be happy to share my process for those that want a tutorial.
