Processing DNG’s from the Ricoh Gr is nothing but a pleasure. These images were processed in Pixelmator (aka Mac Photoshop) and then brought back to Lightroom to add some grain from the VSCO Film tool kit and add a 3/4 burn vignette. These dng’s are very malleable and lend themselves to great black and white conversions. I want to note that I’m just scratching the surface and I’m sure we’ll be able to tweak these even more with a lot variety for everyone’s palette.
Step in Pixelmator or Photoshop
- Desaturate the image
- Adjusted Levels
- Added a tonal curve
Exposure ― f/2.8, 1/500 sec, ISO 160
Stay tuned. I documented an entire birthday party and I have to process those files tomorrow.
