I prefer the term legerdemain to “taking liberties” in editing. In most of my work things stay pretty much as I saw them, though sometimes an idea to enhance or alter reality comes into play; some of the many software tricks of modern processing seem like magic. In this case the faded pastels, and starker then real bouquet.

These photos reflect exactly what I saw in my viewfinder. The few changes I made in post processing were to ensure that result in the final copies. As for the title, when I saw it once in a museum I guessed the artist had run out of imagination. I have borrowed that lazy out for impact but in truth it’s all about light.

These are separate photographs, I simply went from holding the camera in landscape to holding it in portrait format. I think there is a dramatic difference as a result of the format, with portrait version a much more dramatic and stand-out photograph. Many pro photographers insist on taking their photos in both formats as insurance.

I am getting increasingly confident in my black and white efforts. So this week I will feature for the most part, shots I took and visualized in black and white. All shot with the Fuji XT-3 (ACROS+r) and the 18-55mm 2.8 lens.

These were taken when the weather was cold which is the reason for the cold blue sky. It is surprisingly easy to change this in post processing and “warm-up” the colours. Many editing software packages have tools that create a fall feel to a photo or make changes to the colours of foliage and flowers. I prefer to keep the original colour, but it’s always an option to make changes.

I enjoy playing with editing software occasionally, though my preference is for natural looking photographs. Some subjects just lend themselves to manipulation such as in these high contrast Black and White photographs.


Daylily (Two Photographs)

The daylily is a common flower in the wild and in the city. The background suits this flower in black and white or colour. A narrow depth of field helps it stand out. In some cities an appetite for flowers can be satisfied by a city walk and I am often pleasantly surprised by what I see in terms of good backgrounds.
