tfttf015 – the life cycle of a picture

Today’s show is an experiment. It’s quite a bit different from what I’m usually doing on the show, as it includes a bit of what we podcasters call “sound-seeing”. I’ll give you an insight into my photography process from taking the picture (“almost live” from my top floor window! :)) through to the actual post-processing.

Not a really artistic image, but it’ll serve to illustrate the point
of what a bit of burn and dodge can do to an image.
Before…
