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.

Images – Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach, Halsanefshellir Cave and Dyrolaey Arch – South Coast, Iceland.

Quote to Consider – ‘Personally, I am always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.’ – Winston Churchill

Listening to – ‘Truth, Beauty, Banjo,’ an ‘On Being with Krista Tippett’ interview with Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn, presented as podcast.

    • Thanks Jim.

      You’ve have an image that I’m liking in your ‘Wells Cathedral Interior’ post – the interior angles image plays with light, shadow, negative space, framing, echoing of shape … it intrigues.
