gross, overexposed photo
gross, underexposed photo (except for the sky, which is way too bright)
photo I can stand!
I can't quite put my finger on what it is I like about the photograph, but there's something about it that I just...like. Maybe the framing? I think the sky is a little bright, and that this would be much better if somebody would take pity on us and teach us how to burn and dodge...but I can't really complain, because Slade did help me to take this picture (my darkest exposure, and the only one where the sky was remotely acceptable) and bring out the highlights in the lower half. So at least I've got that going for me. Which is nice.
Slade's Quote of the Day: pay attention to your backgrounds.
There once was a teacher named Slade,
Great photographs he has made
And if your darks are white,
Or your highlights aren't light,
Then he will come to your aide.
And now, a poem about how sad not being able to dodge and burn makes me, how it keeps me up late at night and drives me absolutly crazy, causing me to obsess over my photos in a desperate attempt to fix my photos somehow without dodging and burning...
My photography's breaking my heart
Though I think I do more than my part
Here are the facts:
Now I never relax
In short, I should have stayed in art.
