Great images are everywhere…with a little help!

Great images are everywhere…with a little help!

I’m sure that you’ve all heard it before: “Amazing photographic opportunities are everywhere! All you have to do is open your eyes to see them!”

But, if you’re like me at all, it’s not always that simple. I don’t always feel like I see these opportunities. I don’t always feel the images around me.

Or, I’ll see an amazing photo that someone else has taken and it’s like dirt or a rusty old bike or something like that and it’s a really nice image. But, if I try to take a similar image, I can look at it and it’s perfectly composed and exposed and yet it still just looks like dirt or a rusty bike or whatever. And I wonder if someone else would see it differently. What am I missing?

And, then there are the times when, thankfully, it just works. An image works out. And, the feeling is wonderful.

And, I wonder if there is a way to kick-up, increase the chances of those wonderful moments. A way to get to that flow…

With that in mind, I’m just finished watching a video by Gavin Hooey that talks about his photographic process, from camera to computer. It talks about how he uses Photoshop and a bit of imagination to get to a photographic result.
