know the light

“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.” ~ George Eastman




We all know that light is the key to photography. It is always about the light. I am always 'chasing it down' ... but I don't think I know it for all its worth yet! That is a good thing because that means the search is still on!!


For this image, I bracketed the shot ... really detested two of the images [delete delete] and picked the underexposed image [because the areas with light interested me the most]. My favorite Photoshop plugin: Nik's Viveza. I love the 'localized editing' approach to image editing. By the time I finished sliding, this is what I ended up with [SOOC in Comments].


I started out with an inspirational quote and I'll end with this one:


There are 3 key things for good photography: the camera, lighting, and... photoshop ~ Tyra Banks


That gave me a good laugh on this early Sliders Sunday morning!! I thought my fellow sliders would agree!




Happy Sliders Sunday Folks!
