This weeks challenge #186 is ‘Low Light’. In black and white light is key for tones in the picture. It needs body (black) but soft greys give it atmosphere. Here I used the darker tones for the main objects of the photo, the couple playing cards, while having a drink and a bite. But all these signs in the background about what to do in Kathmandu add to the atmosphere of the photo.
About the B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish. Some of them are partly retouched but most do have scratches, dust and stains.
Shot with Nikon F90 on Kodak TriX, scanned from film and edited using Snapseed and Marksta
