Sense-ible Learning - Sometimes there is a "Try"
Welcome back to Sense-ible Learning. This past week I didn't get much done in the way of shooting, and took a bit to get editing again as well. So ya, a bit of a slow week for me.
However, when I did get around to it, a thought crossed my mind. And I find this really stands out in my work. I tend to change up my style of editing constantly. I try new things, see a look I like and I see how my take on it is. The famous line "Do or do not, there is no try" doesn't always apply. And that is one of the beautiful things of digital photography and art. We can try something, not like it and go back if we want.
Prior to the launch of Sixth Sense Photo, I was doing an edit a day series on Google Plus. I was constantly revamping my editing process, taking in things I learned with different programs and plugins, trying to change up the order, while going for different looks and feels. Don't be afraid to try something new and see if you like it. It may be out of your comfort zone but you just might find something wonderful!
The two photos are both from the Toronto Zombie Walk. I wanted to do something a little more fitting, horror like. I tend to not use film grain too often, but it felt right for these. Plus working with OnOne''s Perfect Photo Suite 8 was an experience. So powerful and easy to use!
So, Do an edit, Try a new approach or tool, and Don't get frustrated if the first attempt did not work out the way you wanted. Learn from it and go again!
If you are curious about that series, I will work on bringing it to Sixth Sense Photo as an archive. And for a list of programs I did try; Lightroom, Photoshop, Phase One Capture One, OnOne Perfect Photo Suite, Nik Collection, and currently working on an attempt to use Corel Graphics Suite X6. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me or find me on Google Plus!
