Jim Friesen - Photography

Return to My Blog

I have written before about Japanese woodblock prints and have occasionally tried to mimic the look, with limited success. I was playing with effects from all three of my photo processing apps, Photoshop, Lightroom and Nik, when a rather ordinary shot started to take on aspects of those prints. The snow on the mountain (behind the mountain behind the tanker) reminded me of Hokusai's 36 Views of Fuji


English Bay may be my version of Mount Fuji. I'm going to go back in my library of English Bay photos (I have hundreds, if not thousands). Maybe I can find 36 that might work.
