Yesterday I met a young photographer and she showed me some of her urban explorations....pretty cool stuff. Well talking to her I also made me long to get out a shoot myself. You know work and play often don't mix it up very well...and the client projects I did make over the last month were for internal release only!
So after we got home, fed the kiddos and enjoyed a quick date night out I realized I still had some daylight left. Instead of urban exploration I did some deep forest exploration from my backyard. I spent the rest of the night playing with development settings, Aperture, Capture One, OnOne, Nik Suite....just to see what I could do. This is one of the three I liked. I wanted it to make me think I was really deep in a mysterious woods. I hope I fooled you!
So the moral of the day is..as Bob Coates would say...take some time to play and imagine. Sometimes it unlocks doors you would not know existed.
PS Fujifilm X-E1, 23mm, tripod mount, Capture One and Silver Effects Pro2.
