This photo was originally taken in October 2007 at the Lost Pines Art Bazaar in Bastrop, Texas. It looks like I never bothered to do any post processing on this photo at the time.
Over the years I have taken photographs that have great potential, but were lacking in post-processing. When I first started taking pictures with a dSLR camera, I only had the software that came with the camera, no Lightroom or Photoshop. I was very limited in the post-processing I could do. After I got Lightroom, I put a lot more effort into learning how to, and actually putting effort into post-processing.
A month or so ago, some of my photos were critiqued by Scott Kelby, Matt Kloskowski and Erik Valind on The Grid. They said technique and composition were pretty solid, post-processing was not bad, but keep working at it. I try to get out at least once a week to take photos, but when I'm short on time or energy, I've been going through old catalogs and finding photos that maybe didn't get to their full potential back in the day.
It's interesting to look back at these photos and see where my short-comings were and where I have grown. And where I still haven't grown.
Here is an eclectic collection of photos that recently got new life.
