Picture Perfect – (Boulevard)

About Project

My visit to inside the perimeter, otherwise known as ITP on a Saturday morning was eventful to the say the least. Although I am originally from Atlanta, which is a rarity, so much has changed over the past two years since moving to the burbs. It was a true pleasure and surprise to tour my hometown as if I were a visitor from another state. One of the places that I ventured was the corner of Boulevard and Edgewood near the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, Grady Memorial Hospital, Auburn Avenue Library, and some of the most eclectic venues in the Old Fourth Ward.

One of the latest venues I spotted with my camera was a church karaoke-themed bar, Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium. Although I didn’t venture into the establishment (it was too early and closed), I took pleasure in capturing its ambiance through the graffiti and wall murals on the building. I also enjoyed using a framing technique to highlight the artwork by using elements across the street from the venue.

In this portfolio example, you will also see the use of Lightroom presets that enhanced the color of the imagery and made an otherwise dull image more vibrant and alive.
