Street Preacher on State Street in Chicago's Loop (1987-05-01 0001_01)
01 May 1987
Chicago, Illinois (Loop/Downtown)
The photo was taken with a Pentax MX camera and a Sigma 600mm / f:8 mirror lens. I used Fujichrome 100 color transparency film at an exposure of 1/125th of a second at f:8.
Editing was done with Luminar Flex. First I used the Erase tool to get rid of some dust spots on the original. Then I used the Develop filter to increase the contrast, shadows and clarity while reducing the highlights, whites and blacks. Next I added the Accent AI and Polarizing filters and used the Tone filter to increase the SmartTone. Then I added the Structure and Denoise filters. Lastly I used Dodge & Burn to darken his face and hair which were very washed out in the original.
