So it’s the day before the first ever UK Photography Show starts so I’m currently checking over my presentations making sure everything is in order.
In addition to that I’ll also be giving my Successful Shoots…Guaranteed talk tomorrow morning to an invited audience which is being filmed in preparation for a project we’re currently working on, so a busy few days ahead but I can’t wait!
Anyway getting back to today’s post I’ve a few things to share with you so let’s get cracking…
NEW PICTURE: KICK BOXER
First off here’s a couple of new pictures which very nearly weren’t
Well what I mean by that is the original files were ones that I’d disregarded and considered as rejects from a photo shoot, mainly because of being test shots and being underexposed, lighting not quite right and so on. However just a little time in Lightroom and Photoshop and it can be fun seeing if you can salvage something…
I’ve never been one for throwing files away. I tend to keep everything from a photo shoot and nowadays doing so isn’t such an issue as the price of memory storage is getting less and less.
I mentioned earlier in the week that I’ve recently had a completely new Backing Up system installed and I’ll be putting some videos together so you can see what I’ve gone for any why. Whilst moving files over it’s been a great excuse for having a tidy up and organising things a lot better and it’s doing this that meant I stumbled across these two files and couldn’t resist having a play.
If you missed this week’s episode of my podcast / show then I take you through the complete retouch of the image above. The episode is slightly longer than normal as it’s around the 30 minute mark but there’s a lot of stuff packed in. You can check it out on my YouTube Channel here [Link]
Also you can check out larger / better screen quality versions over on my 500px page here [Link]
