Photographer's Note

Paulista impression

Shot on Avenida Paulista, the economic centre of Sampa. Although some say that the new economic heart is in the Pinheiros district now.

Maybe more a study of atmosphere and tones then anything else. Working on this one I remembered the feelings I had while walking the Paulista streets – mostly in sync and open to the intense multisensory flow of stimuli and be able to place them. And being thrilled by them. But sometimes also feeling vaguely disconnected, somehow lost and light as if coming from another planet. Something of this feeling is in this capture.

Due to holiday and travel I won’t be posting for a while.
Enjoy the spring my friends and take care!

The PCS4 work flow: I altered the saturation, contrast, curves and levels for the whole pic and some elements separately, using different layers, thot that it would gain in b/w so converted by using gradient mapping, USM-ed, added a frame and resized and enhanced the edges and did a gentle USM (0,3px, 78%) again on a 75 % transparent layer.
