This site has always been about playing around, which sometimes means that it is not complete. You may or may not have noticed that I have changed the bed linen and rearranged the furniture around here. I don’t currently have the time to do a redesign that I will be happy with so I have striped the site down to the minimum.
In the process of stripping back I thought it wise to spruce up the HTML a little. Apparently there is this new version that is not ready for production yet so that sounds perfect for a half assed redesign. By the way if you want to know when HTML5 will be ready then there is no better way to find out than to check out http://ishtml5readyyet.com/.
Here is the first variation of my Port Campbell image for my one image, ten photos challenge. I have used some selective curve adjustments to lighten up the foreground and generally warm the photo up a little. The horizon is a little straighter and I have cropped out the more of the sky to draw attention into the cliffs.
I am not overly happy with this photo but I suppose that is not really the point.
I have come to the realisation that pressing the shutter button on a camera is such a small part of photography.
Of course there are many rules to the composition and creation of the photo, both in your mind and in your camera but that only makes up one part of the creation. The other part, which was traditionally in the darkroom, now falls to the digital equivalent, using tools like photoshop or aperture.
Been trying out a low key photography technique as described here: http://ricknunn.com/how-i-shoot-lowkey-portrait/ Not m.astered it yet by any means and I have a stupid, frustrated look on my face but it is a cool technique and worth a mention, check it out.
