I love Photoshop. I mean, who doesn’t? But I tend to rely heavily on the fact that I can always crop, color correct, sharpen, saturate, and pretty much just overall change the hell out of a photo long after I’ve taken it. So yesterday I decided that I should really focus on simply taking a better photo in the first place. I took a brief basics class at Calumet in NYC with a couple friends and then went out and took a few pictures in Madison Square Park. Of course afterwards we went to Hill Country BBQ for brisket & beers and then went to see World War Z because you can’t just walk around and take pictures ALL day.
So the these several photos have almost no altering in PS outside of some slight cropping and straightening. Maybe a little brightness/contrast adjust. Either way it’s a start and hopefully I’ll get better.
