Weekly Prompts: Edit

I usually like to try wherever possible to compose my photographs as correctly as possible, requiring minimal editing, but sometimes I’ll find I have to crop the edges a little, or I’ll want to convert the image to black and white – the above image has had both applied in post-processing. My original has slightly more empty dark space on the right hand side and along the bottom, and even as I took the shot (in colour) I knew I wanted to greyscale the final image to fully emphasise the highlights and shadows.

Other crop-type editing gets done at home whenever I need to straighten out wonky horizons, or cut out random parts of people either coming in or going out on the edges of the shot. And as well as considering the simple starkness of monochrome, other visual changes can include making a negative image which is sometimes very effective whether in colour or in black and white. And at other times I just go completely over the top and apply a digital art filter to an entire image – I find these are truly great fun to play with! πŸ™‚

  1. I’m very similar to you Ruth, I love the fun stuff but very rarely show on WordPress. Love your header image and the filtered last one is fabulous, so colourful. πŸ™‚
