I'm only new to this photography thing, I currently have a Canon 70D. I tried to look this up myself, ask, and ask elsewhere but haven't had an answer yet. Wondering if someone would be able to explain how Liam Wong gets his photos looking like this. Is it a mixture of both a lot of pre/post production, where would be a good place to start?
- How does he get the 'Neon Lights' effect in the image, but keep the blacks so black. Also, keeping the detail on all the signs quite nice.
- How does he not blow out the light/contrast?
- What lens/settings would you think he used?
- Is this more post-production, and if so would it be a mixture of Photoshop and Lightroom?
I've been playing around with the camera with Christmas lights during the holidays and don't seem to be able to capture such colour. As I said, I'm very new to this and want to try and recreate this effect with little knowledge. I am slowly learning how most images are done, but am at a loss with these images, haha. I'm more looking at what he does pre-production, but obviously any information would be great. Thanks all.
