I spent yesterday afternoon doing a one-on-one workshop with Daniel, a keen photographer, wanting to learn a bit more about creating interesting photographs even when the Dubai weather does not cooperate. We had a quick half an hour general chat about what he was looking to achieve with his photography and then walked around Dubai Marina, looking for interesting bits and pieces to shoot.
While looking for stuff to shoot, I remembered taking some close-up photos of The Address hotel with my iPhone and I wanted to see if I could replicate these with my bigger camera. I came up with the shot below, with which I’m fairly happy. The post-processing was very simple with one curve used for contrast and the black and white conversation done with a high contrast red filter.
