Work has been challenging lately. Good, but challenging. Once home, I'm working out, catching a brief meal, and then relaxing. Lately, I've been doing that by practicing some new photography techniques. I'm using a bunch of cellphone apps to modify DSLR photos previously taken. The process and the results are surprising me. Here's last night's project - a bridge on Deer Isle (Maine) that I have taken about 100 photos of from the front on approach, but this is the only photo I ever took at this angle. And I didn't like the original, but as with the Taj photo below, the post-processing version is much more pleasing. I just can't decide which of these two I like better.
I'm also very excited that I'm about to sign up for a weekend workshop with the photographer who has inspired my attempts at these new techniques. The workshop will include creating negatives from digital images, and printing on hand-coated platinum/palladium paper. Looking forward to the experience and the results.
