I’m at the end of the third edition of my book The iPad for Photographers, and running into a now-familiar hazard of the job. While building examples for screen shots, I invariably find one or two that I want to edit a little and share. Here’s another photo from my recent sunrise tulip photo shoot—I thought I was done, but this one caught my eye even though the original was underexposed (see below, in Photosmith). Pushing the settings a little brought up the exposure, boosted the vibrance (but not too much), and added a subtle vignette.
Sometimes I fall into a deep photo rabbit hole, starting out in search of a good photo to use as an example and finding myself looking at images of my daughter as a baby, vacations, and the like. When you’re on a deadline as I am now—note that I’m writing this at 1:15 a.m.—those diversions aren’t a great idea. But it also reminds me why I enjoy this great mixture of writing and photography that is my career.
