Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

Flemington New Jersey and Some Awesome Clouds March 8, 2008

I took these photographs back on October 21st, 2007. I never had a chance to edit them until yesterday and today.

I’m actually glad that I didn’t get to. I’m happy that I am backed up. The reason I’m actually happy about my back-up of 2007 photos to process is because since the time I took them I’ve learned a lot more about post processing then I knew last year – so waiting to edit them has let me try so many more things to increase the impact of the photo.

It makes me think that if I had more time in the world that I would go back and re-edit so many things I took last year to see if I could enhance them even more. But since I have a full time job that doesn’t leave me much time for re-editing older work let alone finish processing new work along with work from 2007 that I never even go to yet!

Let’s get back to the photos…so I took these photos the same day I took my first paying portrait shoot. When I left the shoot I decided to take the LONG WAY HOME and explore a town I hadn’t spent much time until this day. I’m so glad I decided to do so…look at the results!

Let me start with 2 that are my favorite edits of the series. I’m so proud of these two photos and the look I achieved in Photoshop:

There ther was “the tree” – another favorite subject of mine. I applied the “Technicolor Dream World” action that Julie has been using and then I applied a B&W filter over that. The “Technicolor Dream World” action is what gave it the softer dreamier look.
