Most photographers will relate to how much time goes into editing images, relative to the time spent taking them. It is a daunting process that feels like it may never end, as there is always another way to edit the same image. The spectrum of features in Adobe Photoshop are quite extensive and continually improving. One new feature I discovered this month is the ability to colorize a black and white image. This is a pretty awesome use of Cloud AI to restore old family photos. In my case, I decided to test it out on a few older film shots I took from the early 2000's.
TikTok is also a great resource of creative inspiration, and inspired the cover image of this blog, as well as three images in the gallery below. I wish I could find and source the original TikTok, but basically they took a telephone pole image (of which I may have a few to draw from) and replaced each piece of sky between the wires with a different sky shot. Pretty straightforward, and I also happen to have hoarded a small collection of sky shots to do the same experiment.
Last, we had a very foggy morning a week back, and I took the chance to get some shots by my house of a variety of things. One project I am working on recreating is an image I call "Crossroads", which was one of my favorites from around 2013, so much so that I featured it on my business card. I'm not going to share that original image quite yet, as I want to do some better recreations of it and blog about that in the future. However, you may be able to guess which image below I might call "crossroads", which didn't quite work out due to the time of day. It's a shot that's better suited for darker hours. However, the fog did add a nice effect to the image.
Please enjoy the images below, all of which went through a bit more aggressive levels of photoshop editing compared to my usual editing. They often involve layering different texture photographs I have collected from different abandoned explorations and adventures.
