Doing a picture a day is finally starting to bring up questions and thoughts that I don’t usually have when taking a picture, as well as a willingness to experiment. I typically try to avoid using too many “special” effects when editing pictures, but for some reason, I was kind of curious to try some around when messing with my still life picture. (Yep, that’s what I’m calling those bananas.)
With the picture I took on January 20th, I had to do a lot of tinkering to find shadowing that I liked. Everyone says this, but I don’t think I fully grasped it until now: photography is entirely about light. I really wanted to get that glow that comes from staring at the computer screen all day, especially as the sunlight fades into dusk and I’m still tapping away at my keyboard.
