Furthering Edit

Sangudo Truck - Sangudo, Alberta
Sangudo Truck – Sangudo, Alberta

With each edit of a photo, not always, but often the editing takes you further in visually understanding the image narrative. In this photo, desaturation and tinting has drawn highlight to the curve of metal shrouding the engine where the shroud meets the black curve of the fender flare on each side (behind each headlamp). On the left the shroud retains perpendicularity where the right shroud has been opened more frequently, perhaps hastily leaving a bend. Use is indicated and the truck’s driver within situation did that – the image has narrative.

Listening to – Tyler Bates’ ‘Pamplona,’ Michael Andrews & Gary Jules’ ‘Mad World,’ and Samuel L. Jackson’s ‘Alice Mae’.

Quote to Inspire – “All the technique in the world doesn’t compensate for the inability to notice.” – Elliott Erwitt

  1. I really enjoy the reduction of clarity in this photography. It worked out really, really well. I think it is a hard technique to pull off.

    1. Hey there …

      Thank you for your kind words.

      You’ve some excellent photos of your own – the black and white of your male friend climbing that draws emphasis and tone to his left forearm sinew, the arm anchoring him to the cornered rock face (good, good) and then, you’ve got the opportunity to do some things with your ‘no climbing’ image (already good … but has potential for work with tones and contextual detail – smooth lines/shapes); I like your blog and that you et al are asserting selves into Life (bleeding toes and all) … well done!

      Take care … 😉

      1. Thank you so much for the advice! 😉 It is much appreciated. I love getting input and tips on my work.
