In my photography I am back to basics. I am working the fundamentals of post-processing in Adobe Lightroom 5. Haste in producing a photograph is taking back seat to broader consideration of what can happen with each image. Post-processing holds choices that I would also make using the Nik Collection. The resulting photograph, though, does not degrade with each edit.
B-side images contain surprises – they often hold gold. Post-processing becomes a means of mining for that gold. It becomes a means of re-discovering what you saw and now see. It is practice. It is also a kind of meditation, a practice of seeing more. I am tied in with Mitchell Kanashkevich for post-processing instruction with Adobe Lightroom 5. There is more to understand / discover – yet, I am getting somewhere.
