|DANCING TREES OF THE NIGHT, STONE LAGOON, 2010|
I showed an earlier version of this image at the Redwood Camera Club's regular meeting last week. That image had some issues in that it was blurry in the trees branches. I think the blurriness came about due to the fact that this image was shot in nearly dark conditions at ISO 12,800 and was hand-held.
Hal Work, a club member and Photoshop expert, offered to show me how the blurriness could be corrected in Photoshop. We worked together on the digital negative yesterday, and Hal was able to make some changes that I think really helped the image.
I think what I am attempting to share here is that for one to succeed in photography today that the photographer needs to constantly work on understanding more and more about all the aspects of photography. I feel too, that the photographer needs to work at it constantly.
That is how I am treating my photography. I attend meetings, I share knowledge with others, I watch how-to videos, and I spend lots of time applying what I see and hear.
My thanks goes out to Hal Work, and to me for all the fine work.
