The Spooky Old Building of Edisto Island: Making the Photo

I recently had the great pleasure of visiting Edisto Beach, SC for a week. Regrettably I didn’t have very much time for photography but I did spend one evening exploring and stumbled across this most-groovy old building on the side of a road. The building looks to be an old shop or house long since abandoned. What caught my eye was the harsh lighting courtesy of the streetlamp above and to the right. To my eye the scene had a cinema noir feel to it. The video below outlines the process I used to create the final image in Adobe Lightroom. 

In this edition of Making the Photo I show you behind the scenes edits I use to convert a flat RAW file from the Leica M Monochrom Typ 246 into a cinematic gem with lots of drama all in Adobe Lightroom Classic CC.

Making the Photo is a series describing the methods I use to create, edit, and print photographs.
