I like to make the distinction between digital photographs and digital images. To me a photograph has minimal post production, the closer the image is to the camera the closer it is to being a photograph. When you start changing the the elements within the composition then you start creating a digital image.
There are some post production techniques that are analogous to the work done by chemical / film photographers and I reckon those would be acceptable to use to keep a composition a photograph. So things like resizing and changing levels etc would be allowable.
I decided I wanted to do more than just levels with my favorite image from my photo shoot with Tonya Z. I wanted to do something a little artistic, and maybe a little meta. I used Photoshop to alter a reflection and create a painting inside my digital image.
It gives me a little spark of happiness when I see that someone that I have worked with has chosen to use the images we created in their portfolio.
I just found that Tonya Z thought well enough to choose four images from our shoot for her portfolio ;0)
- 8:14 – I chose it in my first cut.
- 12:10 – This is one of my top 5
- 13:06 – I chose it in my first cut.
- 16:19 – I chose it in my first cut.
I must be doing something right ;0)
