Post-Processing a Light-Painted Picture


 After viewing my grandsons images that he took the other night at the Stone Barn, I picked one to use as a new image. My grandson was using a Nikon D300s, with a Tokina 10-17 mm lens set at 10 mm on a tripod that was placed on the ground.  His settings were 30 seconds, ISO 3200, f/4.5. It is a picture of me at my camera looking at the picture I took on my back screen on my camera.











 After importing the picture into Lightroom, the only development that I did was to crop the picture.

My steps for post-processing was to: 1st export the picture from Lightroom into Photoshop C C 2014
.

2nd step was to reduce the noise, which I did using Topaz  DeNoise



3rd step was to run an action that I obtained for free from Serge Ramilli.


Here is the action and information on how you can obtain it.
