The office at onOne Software is very quiet this week. It’s really nice, actually, because the overall reprieve from meetings and such because I’ve been able to catch up on creating a lot of new videos. I also spent this afternoon working on a new series that I’ll kick off at some point in early 2013. It’s all about the old images redux.

This is an image taken in 2010 while sneaking into random buildings in NYC. I stumbled onto this wonderfully decrepit staircase and elevator. Everything about it was sinister. I ended up reworking it today and wanted to share it along. I look forward to sharing more revitalized images in the coming weeks and months.

In terms of processing

This is a seven exposure tone-mapped HDR image using Photomatix Pro.

I masked Cyberpunk and Blue Dawn onto the staircase while masking in Thermopylae onto the hallway and elevator. I also added a bit of Grunge Goddess. All done in Perfect Effects 4 by onOne Software.

Final touches were applied in Lightroom 4.3.
