Yes, I know — I’ve been neglecting the blog, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy. In fact, I’ve had two more photos accepted into juried exhibits that will be shown during the month of April. I would love to hear feedback from anyone who’s able to see them in person!
The photo below was accepted for a show called Nostalgia at PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont. (I also submitted the image in the previous post, which I personally thought was a stronger contender.)
Submitting this photo gave me a chance to focus on the processing rather than the composition. The bones of this photo are good — a strong diagonal and shallow depth of field. But the original (below) seemed a little too bright for the “nostalgia” theme.
I tried turning this into a sepia print but I wasn’t happy about how it looked. (Maybe I need a little more practice?) So instead I desaturated the color, leaving a little hint of green in the background.
