Before and After

Before and after editing.

As a lot of you know I love taking photo’s, I am self taught in this area. It is all just trial and error for me, I get a couple of good shots, but mostly bad shots.

Here is an example of a photo I took a few months ago, I was having a play around trying to get the city in the background of my glass of wine, it didn’t come out the way I wanted (another bad shot) so I disgarded the photo. A few weeks later I came across the photo again in my folders and thought I would have a go at editing it. I use Adobe PhotoShop and Adobe Lightroom for editing, once again I’m self taught so everything is trial and error, I’m getting a lot better as I play around with them more. I thought if I blur out the background and keep the wine glass and wine bottle in the foreground it might look ok, as you can see in the photo above it came out great (I think so anyway). This is now one of my favorite photos.

So at the end of the day never throw away any of your photo’s, good or bad ones, with a bit of editing a bad photo can become a great photo. One of the reasons I love photography so much is every photo is different, just like every persons view of a photo is different, what I think is a great photo the next person might think it is rubbish. So I hope you enjoy looking at my photo’s and please let me know what you think, I really enjoy feedback.
