Cityscape Photography | The Bean Chicago
Cityscape Photography | The Bean Chicago – Cloud Gate, otherwise known as “The Bean” is one of Chicago’s most iconic art attractions. Located in the famous Millennium Park, it’s a must-see for photographers visiting the city. The best time to photograph Cloud Gate is in the morning before the hundreds of daily visitors arrive. I wanted to capture it from a different viewpoint so I moved around to the side of the art exhibit and composed the shot so that the bean looked more like an orb. The moody morning clouds and low light paired perfectly with my Film Lightroom presets. See the full resolution image here.
Post Processing & Camera Settings.
To process this image, I used the Presetpro Creative Flow Lightroom Presets, Profiles, and Brushes (I used film emulation presets to complete the look). Next, I imported the image into Photoshop to do a little sharpening.
