Like many of us, I used to waste sooo much time on post-processing. I’d tweak those sliders and I’d experiment endlessly without a clear goal.
The internet is full of beautiful photos these days. Wth all the technological advances, beautiful images aren’t so hard to create any more. But, are those images going to touch your viewers? Will they be remembered for more than a day?
Imagine you're asked to photograph at one of your favourite destinations. It's for a company you really like. You get to use a camera that’s not even released yet and you’re given plenty of creative freedom. On top of everything, you get paid well too.
It’s not often that a camera changes the way that you approach your work, but, without exaggeration this is exactly what happened when I got my hands onto Panasonic Lumix cameras. In large part, this is why I wanted to have a relationship with Panasonic – because I loved what they created.
A couple of months ago I posted an image of a man meditating on the banks of the Ganges in the Tips and Inspiration section. I talked about how I try to avoid clichés and doing what everyone does. There was one comment that brought up a few interesting points. It got me thinking and resulted in this blog post.
