Scary Man, NIK

Copyright Joe DiMaggio

I had an opportunity to do a story on Scary Man.  This is an environmental portrait that was originally done on Kodachrome 64 which I recently converted to a digital file.  As you all know, I am not a Photoshop maven and I do believe less is more.  The new term is a “worked” photograph.  This is minimalistic NIK.

I finally got the NIK programs installed and decided to play with one digital scan.  That was at 8:30 in the evening. By 3:30 in the morning I had tested all of the software and was starting to bleed from my eyes. While bleeding I had a huge smile on my face.  I was like 14 all over again – my first day in a darkroom. These programs are absolutely awesome. They are simple, straight forward and easy to use and even an idiot like me can make them work.  I don’t impress easy but I’m impressed.
