The More I Photograph

The more I photograph and the more I learn to post process, the more I realize I have so much more to learn. Just when you think you’re getting there ( not that I was) or at least feeling a bit more comfortable because I have to perfectly honest – I am feeling more comfortable with my photography, boom, a wrench is thrown into the mix and a blinding flash of the obvious strikes, well at least that’s how I feel. Anyway, I’m enjoying the ride and continue to learn as I go. I get emails asking me how I did this or how I did that, setting, etc. and all of that is important to a certain extent but most of the time its not. Its one’s own style to determines the actual rhythm of your workflow and now I understand why togs are so hesitant to divulge their presets. Do I agree with those, well to each its own. If you want mine, I’ll reply back, its really not that out of this world but a little here and a little there and all of a sudden your image starts to look a bit better. Oh well, its not a rant but more like a realization with a reaffirmation as to how ones style is in fact unique, just like everyone’s vision.

Moral of the story, keep shooting, keep processing, and in that path you’ll learn new things everyday that will surprise you. Cheers.

  1. No matter how much you know, think you know, you never know it all. Every single day is a day of learning.

    So, as you say: “Moral of the story, keep shooting, keep processing, and in that path you’ll learn new things everyday that will surprise you.”

    Right on!

    1. Absolutely Matthew thanks! Its been my experience that regardless of gear, the shooting experience is worth a lot more in the long run.
