A brief word on editing

Lets talk about editing. As from my previous post, sometimes things don’t work out. And that’s okay. Sometimes you can fix them, sometimes you are just having fun with the editor tools to see what happens. These pictures are my examples doing that. Even though they are not superb, they have their artsy side.

1. First picture is my favourite edit. I used the exposure and shadows. It has its old school photography look. But you still knows it’s night time.

2. The second photo is the original unedited picture

3. The Third picture is I turned up the exposure to see if I could make it look like daytime.

4. The Fourth picture is softened it so I looked like a painting.

All done in Adobe Lightroom.

All the Best People have fun

Lets take a moment and talk about having fun and experimenting. I am a photographer. I want to show case some of my less elegant photos.

I couldn’t get to my better photos without the experimenting and having some fun. And I have to say that experimenting and seeing the result created some awesome laughs! There was frustrations, not gonna lie, but that is okay. Experimenting is how things come about, and inspires trying different things.

Learning from the film world as well, you learn from very careful experimenting. Making note of every setting, and learning from each frame. From these shots that I took in Canmore, most of the images were on unusable. But I learned from each attempt and just had fun with my husband. This picture was my attempt of outlining the mountain range with long exposure light photography. Obviously it didn’t work and afterwards I had a good laugh. I didn’t attempt this again. And that’s okay…I might again one day!

I also think its important to show case that none of us are perfect. Yes there are some very talented people out there that know what they are doing. But it is good for our mental health to realize we all make mistakes and that it can take time to get a good shot.

So get out there and have some fun! And if you want let me know some of your fun experiments.   If you want to see more of my work and another experiment check out my Instagram.
