I Have Photoshop Again

I'm no big fan of photoshop. By any means. But it seems impossible in this industry to avoid it. As photography evolves, developing tactics have become photoshop tactics. And it's impossible to evade forever. So I moved from one rudimentary (not to mention free) photoshop to a new, less rudimentary (but still free) photoshop. These are just a few extreme edits, to try and familiarize myself with this new software. The first is a photograph of my sisters dance recital. The second is the Bluewater Bridge in Sarnia. I started to notice, and am going to try to avoid, that with the new digital technology, I just tried to make them look like film. I guess I'm hooked. When I get my next roll back I'll be sure to scan some and get them up.

Although I'm not always a huge fan of pet pictures, due to how much luck is involved in amateur animal photography, that doesn't mean I'm gonna ignore it when luck is in my favour. This is my dog Rio. We were just outside of Grand Bend, on the beach, at sundown, and the wind was absolutely fierce. He just happened to shake his head at the exact moment I fired the shutter. I caught him in full shake, with his entire mane flailing. A great photo, but a damn lucky photo.
