The postprocessing workflow for this image was split into two stages: I captured five bracketed exposures early in the morning while the station was empty, and used luminosity masks to achieve a balanced finish for the bright lights and the gritty texture along the platform. I then used separate four-second exposures for the first westbound Central Line train of the morning — one as it pulled into the platform, and another as it departed — and blended these together to produce the final image.
I couldn’t resist in playing around with this tunnel and this was the result, another to add to my ‘Conceptional Fabrication’ photo series, it is good fun.
I have done two versions of this, one in this monochrome feel and the other in a colour feel. Personally I prefer this one as it gives it a more sci-fi futuristic feel to the image but I might upload the other later on and let you see which you all prefer.
This is one tunnel I plan to revisit next time I am down in London which will hopefully be Open House London. As always I can’t wait for it and look forward to seeing what the Open House team have in store as the main events!
I am planning on doing a blog post maybe next month of some of the places I have visited in the last 5 Open Houses that I have done to help those make decisions on where to visit and photograph.
Would this be of interest to anyone?
Hope you are all having a great week so far and looking forward to tomorrow being Friday and all! 🙂
