To Edit or SOOC...
As an artist..when I draw or paint..I add in the elements that I like and just don't add things I don't want in the creation. In photography it is a whole other ball game. My artist's eye wants my pictures to pop and to offer up what I see in all its beautiful glory. This sometimes means editing. I loved the shot of this beautiful face..but with just a little cropping and light adjustment...it pops..I love that.
I spent last Friday evening downtown at the Artwalk. We have several downtown galleries and they open up and have artists in residence for the evening. It is busy and fun! The performance teams from Nonni and Fox's school were all over downtown doing their thing also.
I was asked to come down and record the event! Jugglers, drummers, actors, singers, chess team...all out doing their thing. OMG I had a blast!!
Giggle...one of Fox's favorite teachers...being silly.
I took 1100 shots that evening...to edit or not edit..that is the questions. I added a few SOOC - straight out of the camera shots here.
I narrowed down the bunch to about 700 of the clearest shots...deleted the blurry ones. I was pleased that, that many turned out worth looking at..I will edit a few and share those soon..I have about 100 favorites...whoot! Don't worry won't share that many LOL!
Slowly but surely I am figuring out that bad a** camera...whoo hoo!
Happy Thursday all!
