I shot this image of San Gabriel mountains from a Cessna 182 a few years ago, Shot it and forgot about it .
Sometime I return from a trip and just don’t have the time to handle all the images that are not work related, I try to do it, but now and then Some images escape me.
I revisited this image 2 days ago, and decided to develop it again.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 allows me more control than I had in earlier versions, It felt more organic now, a little more like how I would treat the image in the chemical dark room.
So from being obscured, this image is now one of my favorite images.
You can get prints and greeting cards of this image here.

When I first started shooting rock concerts, There was no Adobe Lightroom 5 to help me. I was used to shot T-max 3200 black & white, pushing it about 2-3 stops to get what I wanted in the darkroom, expressive rough shots, with grain you can shave with. I was and still try to get shots that show action (by sometime using slower shutter speeds) and enhancing the atmosphere by trying to predict where the lights are going to fall next and clicking the shutter when the lights hit where I want.
Today, shooting in chaotic (light wise) and dark environments is different, I do it by shooting RAW files at very high ISO, and developing them in Lightroom 5. Developing in Lightroom 5 allows more accurate white balance and broad color control. testing, correcting and printing the kind of images you can see below, “old school”, would take a very long time.
Here’s a selection of “Rain King” concert images I shot at the “Whiskey a GO-Go” on Sunset Blvd. last Saturday. “rain King” are, Ben Shafrir – Drums, Eli Sokolow – Guitar and Vocals and Yali Bitan – Bass and Vocals. These guys really know their stuff! You can listen to them using the player underneath the gallery. In their own words, they are an “L.A. based rock trio whose mission is to wake the universe from the coma of auto-tuned digital modernity and rekindle the flames lit by the ancient warriors of face melting, spine curving rock & roll.”
No “Photoshop” was used in the editing of these images.
In my travels to Israel I get to stay sometimes with the Fox family, Howard Fox is a good friend, an amazing painter and a very interesting guy, His lovely wife and two kids are making every stay a joy and yes, They have a dog and a picket fence.
I was going over some images today while checking Adobe Lightroom 4’s new development module and saw this picture, I shot it in Howard’s studio, So I gave it some love and added a little logo to it.
I’ve contemplated on writing a blog for a while now, the reasons are many, I may discuss them in later posts. this blog will mainly follow my photography and other things I’m involved or interested in. Please don’t hesitate to ask me any photography, Lightroom or Photoshop related questions you may have, your thoughts and comments are welcome.
