The thing about photography is that it’s subjective. Like any form of art. The emotions are different. The perception may vary. The journey may lead you to a different place — than intended. Or in some odd turn of events – the same place.
Over the past few weeks — I am visualizing more. I am actively conscience of composition. Drinking in:
- Rule of Thirds
- Balancing Elements
- Leading Lines
- Symmetry and Patterns
And understanding how I can leverage post production to enhance the scene. High Dynamic Range is always a constant. But what are the variables? In using Adobe Lightroom and Photomatix should I free form or use a preset? Will I be judged by the noise-police when I add too much grain?
But in a singular moment a leading line captures my attention. And I begin to mentally frame, crop, experiment and fire away.
