Shabnam’s Secrets

Shabnam Khosrowshahi was one of the 2011 “Thanks for Sharing Awards” winners. She shared her editing workflow for her winning shot pictured below.

Here is what Shabnam had to say: “This particular image was taken in July at Toronto’s Music Garden. I used a Canon T1i with an EF 100 2.8L IS USM lens. First, I did some fade correction and played with the levels in Photoshop. Then I added Exposure to the mix. Most of my photos are touched by Exposure at some point. I used the KodaColor 1942-53 preset in the Color Fading category for this shot. I generally turn off grain and increase sharpening. I added a blue tone to soften this image up, but not much more was done.”

Take a look through some of Shabnam’s other work on Flickr or her website. Below are just a few that caught my eye.
