Straight out of camera. Developed with Olympus Viewer for distortion control and preservation of that "Olympus look", but this was shot in black and white right off the bat, not a conversion. Could have increased the contrast a little and let the highlight overblown a little for dramatic effect, but decided it's fine the way it is.
The original out-of-the-camera version was too flat looking, despite the subject is anything but flat..., so I increased contrast level to show the light and shadow. Ironically, the original was shot in B&W just for that very reason. Maybe next time I should shoot it with a film with ultra low dynamic range (Fuji Velvia 50?) instead of digital.
Just slightly different from 16a. Changed the position from where I was shooting from so there is no obstruction from above to block the view. The eye shape is still the main point here (like most of the shots from the series). Converted into B&W but no other post-process.
This was the original vision. Shot #24b just to be safe. The concept of this version is to leave a lot of white space to have that empty feeling. Lighthouse is kind of shy in the corner. Converted into B&W, otherwise, no process.
This shot gave me a lot of problems. I was shooting for that curve created by the stairs. Apparently I can't use AF because it'll just focus on the lit part. I couldn't use a tripod either..., so it's a little bit challenging. I shot many of them. This one turns out to be the closest to what I wanted to do.
I liked how the window light just glowed in the nearly pitch dark recess, so I took this photo to show the light. The face of the arch was pitch dark and the wall on the right is pretty much Zone 1 (nearly pitch dark). If it wasn't very overcast that day, the window light would easily overblown in the final photo. Fortunately I brought my tripod with me so after some adjustment (I found it's best shooting around about a little more than 2 feet off ground) here it is. The dirt on the window, if I am not mistaken, is actually red colored "green algae." There are plenty of them growing on Fort Point's walls. Post-processed to reproduce faithful color to my naked eyes.
