  1. It’s really interesting that the mask itself has a political meaning. Symbol of protest and symbol of freedom.
    Another form of visual communication to show your political views and to share your views amongst the protestors.
    I would definitely be excited to see these masks on the future history textbook.

    • I completely agree, In the past few years there have been mass protest globally from the Arab spring to the recent mass protest in Brazil and Tahrir square in Egypt. Throughout these protest you could find numerous Guy Fawke Mask in the crowds.

      • Hi husseinyussuf and thanks for the compliment 🙂

        Usually the RAW photos I take are not what I expect them to be. So I take a lot of time in to post processing, using a lot of plugins and softwares.

        But here are the usual steps I take to process the images.

        1. For most times I use a tripod to compose a frame and take 3 photos in different exposures. From light to dark ( -2, 0, +2 ) in order to capture the details in the bright areas and in the shadow areas.

        2. Then I would merge these 3 images into one HDR image using ” Photomatix Pro “. This software will calculate each pixels from several images with different exposures, choosing the best colours and brightness for the area. As far as I know this software is the best when it comes to HDR processing.

        3. When the HDR image is processed, I would edit the photo in Adobe Lightroom to retouch the colours and contrast. I really like the way this software handles highlights and shadows, whites and blacks in the image as well as the control over hue & saturation for every colour.

        4. When it’s done, for the final touch I would edit the image in photoshop. In this process I would try to fix the details and try to reduce the noise on the image.

        These are the main steps that I usually take to produce an image but there still is a lot of stuff I should learn and know to improve.

        Yet, I do not have a youtube account, but since it might be the right time, I would consider making some tutorial videos to help you out or for some tips and tricks 🙂

        Thank you for asking though! I would like to see your photos if you try one!
