City Scenes with the Nik Analog Efex Pro

Rockefeller 4 sm

 

I was walking through Rockefeller Center a couple of weeks ago (pre tree lighting) and took some shots with this gorgeous late afternoon sun creating long dark shadows.  I also discovered that Nik came out with Analog Efex Pro which I somehow missed the announcement.  I just came across it when I was accessing my usual Color Efex Pro.  I really loved the look of the old slide film border.  Just seemed to fit the mood I was trying to create.  Check out his shadow in the glass revolving door.  Both images were taken with my Fuji x100s which is the best street camera out there.  Super sharp, quiet as a mouse and no one pays any attention to you since it is so small.

The image below was also shot in the area of Rockefeller Center with the Fuji x100s.  I have this thing about Psychic signs.  I ran this through Nik Silver Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro and the Analog Efex Pro.  The filter in the Analog Efex Pro was Toy Camera 7.  I love the way the sign is emphasized which is what I wanted but it just added a really fun dimension to it.  I’m all into experimenting with the pixels.  I feel that the Nik Analog Efex Pro just works so well with my Fuji cameras.  Both bring me right back to my black and white film days.

  1. I liked the first photo A LOT and I was initially confused because it looked like it was from another era. Mission accomplished! And the second photo? I thought the effect on the PSYCHIC sign was really cool; I too check out their signs.
