COMPOSE YOURSELF: NOT AS EASY AS IT LOOKS

SIMPLICITY: NOT AS EASY AS IT LOOKS

I tend to prefer simple. Simple clothing, simple pictures. Simple cars. I don’t like ruffles, bows, and ribbons. I like writing that’s lean and spare. I like photographs that lead your eye to the main event, as it were.

Probably the majority of my pictures could be described as simple since they have a single subject. My comments are in the captions.

The pictures are in sets from “straight out of the camera” to “finished.”

One, two, or three steps most of the time. The original shots are completely unprocessed except for reducing the size for uploading purposes.

  1. I really liked the shots of the fuchsia pod in its various iterations. Did you take a second shot of the pink one with a cleaner focus, or did you improve the focus by darkening the color?

    1. In all three sets, the first picture is the ORIGINAL picture and the other pictures are processed versions of it. In the case of the fuchsia pod, I darkened the whole picture just a little bit, then added structure and contrast for detail. The color is natural.

  2. Great processing. You once made a comment about over processing on a challenge where we process an image over 4 weeks. That challenge was really hard in the end as I would stare at the image and think “What else can I do?”. I have my favourite processing and know what suits my style so I really should stick to that.
