I guess it is all in how you care to look at things, but at times it felt like I lost all perspective on my last Photoshop assignment. The last step, printing, was particularly trying. Here is the print lurking harmlessly on the screen in the print queue:
Looks great! what could possibly go wrong? Well, let’s start with the major problem. The printer didn’t like the paper, lovely little streaky lines called “head strike” So, that was a question of changing the settings on the printer. The other problem, well, that was a bit more subtle, it just didn’t look right. To me this image was a lot about the light, and it just was’t working. So back to Photoshop:
It took a total of two and a half hours to get my print to look the way I wanted. Had I lost all perspective? Yeah, probably. Here is my defense. It took me hours to make this photograph. I wasn’t going to settle for an “OK” print.
So, here is the final, final photo I promise:
Also, as I wrote in a previous blog, this image was entered in a weekly photo competition at my camera club. I won an honorable mention. If you are curious to see what I was up against here is a glimpse, you will have to scroll down a bit to see all the images. It is a talented pool of photographers, so any win is a major win for me.
What do you think, had I lost my
mind perspective? And thank you if you have been following me on this journey, I will stop now.
