I might have mentioned before that one of my photo gigs is taking architectural photos for a local kitchen designer.
I love it. And I have seen some amazing kitchens.
A. MAZ. ING!
Take a look at this picture.
See anything “amiss”?
My usual “photo editing plan” is to let the pictures from any shoot sit on my hard drive for up to a week before I edit them. That way I actually approach them with a fresh “eye”. I pulled this one up and really liked the composition and all was well and then…
I took a closer look.
Do you see what I see?
DAGNABBIT! When I was shooting the very cool sink that is just around the corner I had moved the very utilitarian but also very un-photogenic trash can out of the way.
And I forgot to put it back. AND I didn’t notice it as I was lining up the shot.
Insert LARGE dope slap here!
Yes, I could actually “photoshop” it out if I really wanted to. I don’t really want to. And I have other photos just as good.
But I am keeping this picture because I want to remind myself that I have to slow down sometimes and just look to make sure that everything is as I want it.
I am trying to learn from my mistakes.
And I am having just too much fun with photo editing today. I really should do something else constructive but…..
I am just having too much fun playing.
