Moving the light

Often you’ll come home with under-exposed images like the one on the left here.  Most image editors can improve this to a degree such as shown in the second version.  (Click on the first one to see them in a larger slideshow view).

But, Lightroom and Photoshop can do so much more.  Except for two things.  The first is the technical knowledge of the artist.  The second is the vision.  And they will always be there to challenge us.

In the third version of this scene, I’ve moved the light to where it looked good to me.  I’m happy with the outcome.  At least the image is no longer a dud.  But, it always intrigues me to think that another artist might have done something quite different.

As always, it is technique and vision that will set us apart
