About a year ago I took part in photo-meeting where we photographed very interesting fireshow, being done while suspended dozens of meters above the ground. I couldn’t get my eyes away from it and do decent settings. Another problem was It was freezing and event lasted only so long, so I couldn’t play enough with settings to get them “right” so I hoped I’d be able to recover something from RAWs.
Below is one image from many with performer spinning burning steel wool. I wanted to somehow show both - the colour of sparks, the intensity and city nightscape in the background.
I have this image, but I don’t know where to start. Or end. I wanted to follow as much as I could the process with linear rgb in darktable but I don’t think I’m heading in right direction. OOC JPEG was very dark:
I really want to see what’s possible to get from the image, especially in darktable and all the new tools in 3.0
