Working the Image: TEPC November 2020

I took this shot very quickly, but because I didn’t have much experience at the time… I fumbled it. There was no chance to get a second shot as the subjects were moving too fast. So editing was the only hope to make something of it.

Cropping with constraints meant a weird image, so I was left with a little triangle of blank goodness on the top right. I finally cloned, stamped, bodged, and liquified it out of existence. Can you tell? Finally, I added a little vignetting around the main participants including the brighter area top right. I hope it’s not too obvious. In small images, it’s accentuated… but regular size, it seems okay.

Most of the editing was handled in LR, except the patching (PS).

For years, I’ve taken a lot of photos. Just recently, I realized they need their own home: a place where you can look through my lens. "A Look Through The Lens" is my website to share some of my work with you. I hope you enjoy looking at my photographs.
