a road trip and some summer pictures

After a week-long bout of bronchitis and a trip to Atlanta (helping my daughter and her husband finish moving into their first house), my brain’s a bit foggy. But my online iPhone class is tonight, so I’m trying to get back in the photography zone. Our instructor has been walking us through editing steps, and our assignment this week was simply to recreate one of his edited images using a specific series of apps. While I can see the benefit of this exercise, I felt exactly like a high school kid being required to go through the motions of a homework assignment in which I had no personal investment. Fortunately, our teacher is positive, patient, flexible, and encouraging, so my frustration dissipated once class underway.
It’s great to learn about all these new tools, but even more interesting and challenging to figure out which ones to use–and WHY–in order to create specific effects in our personal work. The decision to alter a picture doesn’t come naturally to me. With that in mind, here are a few new experiments. As with my last post, these are about playing with the process–I don’t view them as “art,” or necessarily as finished products, but I’m having a lot of fun learning!
