Today’s post is about the constantly evolving of one’s style and artistic preferences. I am going to share the same photo, but edited in different time periods of my career. Time-and-time again, a lot of artists play it way too safe, and I hope the one thing you get from the post, is to do your own thing.
Sculpture Falls 2017.
I played it way too safe with the original edit that was done in November 2017. My recollection was that I was seeing what I could get away with the auto-tune alone, in LR. Looking back, I have no idea why at the time I thought this was enough.
Sculpture Falls 2018
The most recent version of this photo was done in October 2018, 11 months after the original. This is how I truly felt about that experience.
In conclusion, be open to the fact that your style is going to change, and because of this change, you are going to succumb to re-editing some of your images. Don’t feel guilty about how you edit your photographs, as long as the final result equates to your vision.
Please feel free to contribute your thoughts and opinions about your own style changes.
