Closing up week 2, and what a week it has been. I'm learning a lot about the capabilities of Photoshop. I've also incorporated a new editing program called Luminar from Macphun. It was on sale this week and it seemed like the right time to give it a try. What an amazing program! It's affordable and accessible.
I received a lot of positive feedback from the results last week. It seems that #3 was the most popular. Let me know if you have a particular favorite. It adds to the data. It also harkens back to the question of what makes a good image. The answer will always be subjective and personal, but it's fascinating to me all the same.
I've run into some other issues I failed to consider. How do I display this on my website? I want to display these in a gallery, but what's the best gallery layout? I'm fumbling with that as I go along, so bare with me. Then there's keeping track of my process. Since this is all an experiment I sometimes go back several steps in the editing process to try a different direction. This is teaching me to be more mindful of what I'm doing. And let's not forget about the issue of storage and managing my photo library. As the images grow in quantity, so too do the storage demands.
In spite of the hurdles I'm really enjoying this process. It's fun to see what types of images can unfold. It's fun to truly explore all the possibilities. I feel as though I've just barely scratched the surface here. Elements of the image are starting to grab my attention in a way they hadn't before. I haven't even touched the crop tool yet. I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings. Until next time!
