Spending some time Sitting on my Butt
So just in case some of you that follow me, need to know, I fell on the ice and broke my foot. I broke my ankle and I find myself sitting in front of my computer far more than I usually do. This could be a very productive time for me! But I've got the artistic mentality.
So, I'm spending a little bit of time editing a few photographs. Going through my old archive and cleaning it up. It is an aberration, and it is in desperate need for revamping. I'm finding some old images that I have for the most part ignored and using the new tools that Lightroom has provided. I'm going to say I'm impressed, very much so.
Today's image I took this fall as I was wandering on the eastern slopes trying to find inspiration. At first I wasn't very impressed by the photograph that seemed flat and unappealing. But then I put it through the processing engine once again and spent a few hours fiddling with the file. And I get this! It was photographed with my Canon 5DSR and my EF 50mm F1.2L [I love this Lens!!!]. And it is comprised of 14 separate images shot in a portrait fashion, then stitched together in Lightroom.
The moral of this story is unfortunately, the photographs that you took back then can be re edited and maybe improved. But the question comes should you spend the time? Or should you be happy with what you did learn from those realities and carry on? You also could be suffering from the reality that nothing is ever good enough and can always be improved, this can be a rabbit hole that you do not want to go down. The worst reality of our modern society is continuous change, and this is also a blessing. It is all how you look at it.
So I will continue to spend a little bit of time editing a few things here and there, doing some posts in hopes of increasing my visual acceptance in this photographic world. Because the reality of today is your nothing if you are not seen on one of the social media programs.
This brings up the reality, I have suffered the consequences of Facebook deciding to restrict one of my photographs for some unknown, and inane reason. I'm struggling to try to find some way to contact Facebook to get an answer. In the meantime, everything is held back and I get very little exposure on most of the social media programs, because of course Facebook owns most of them. I shall continue to bang my head in the attempt to become the famous photographer, he says laughingly.
It is what it is!
I wish I could say get out there, shut up and shoot, but because I am convalescing with a plastic boot on my leg I will say the same as I always do! You thought I was going to say something differently, didn't you? :)
Shut up and shoot!
Don't forget to print it!
Cheers to you all and have a Merry Christmas!
