About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Again, so well done. I haven’t tried selective color yet. You do it justice, I think.

      Thank you! SEP2 doesn’t always get restored colours exactly right, but for me that adds to it, it makes the resulting images look a little weird, which I like. With restored colour, less is often more, ie restraint is the thing often – and I think I mentioned the technique of setting up a SEP2 Control Point to restore colour, and then moving the point around on the image, seeing what it throws up here and there, in terms of both colours and tones. A 🙂
