I might be wrong but I think it’s more difficult to sell a photograph as a piece of wall art on it’s merit of just being a photograph. Do you understand what I mean? I guess for me, I would be more inclined to buy a more painterly type of wall art than a photograph. I don’t know why. I guess this is why I utilize Topaz Simplify as often as I do.
After incorporating Topaz Simplify into my workflow in recent months I think it is even taking the place of my use of tone-mapping in my workflow. Now don’t get me wrong I still tone map but the dynamic range I get out of my 5D allows me to blend less frequently. Something I relish, as I spend less time in front of the computer and more time doing other things.
How has your workflow changed over the last few years? Are you using the same software? Have you come closer to perfecting the use of it. Do you utilize software less? I love to hear how your processing has evolved….
Processed in Topaz Simplify, BuzSim preset and set the simplify slider to .15 followed by clarity and a slight vignette in Lightroom.
