This picture was taken while I was back home in MN for my surgery, but I needed to upload something to let you all know where I have been (in terms of my lack of posting).
Earlier this summer I had downloaded the trial version of CS5, because my old version didn’t support the RAW files of my new camera. Well my trial version ran out, and I was in the middle of trying to wrap up my project for my summer independent study, and so I screwed around and somehow managed to get another trial version. Well, that trial version ran out on Saturday. I am currently trying to figure out how to pay for a full version, or figure out something else. Since I shoot everything in RAW, I can’t exactly do anything with all of the pictures I have taken the past few days. I am hoping that by tonight I will have CS5 again, and therefore start getting caught up on everything. I shot my first wedding on Saturday, and so I will be getting some of those pictures up, and then my usual 365 shots.
Falling this behind and not being able to edit pictures is driving me completely insane.
Sweet corn is one of my favorite things about summer. I could eat it almost (if not every) every night. I was outside on my parent’s patio shucking the corn, and looked up into the big locust tree and immediately knew I wanted a picture of the corn with that as the background.
I also took a different approach to editing this. I read somewhere today that you should never edit the same way twice. Which is sort of what I do, constantly. I have my saved presets in curves and things like that, and obviously I tweak for each specific photograph, but I haven’t really tried anything new lately. So, I took a few new approaches to this one, and absolutely love it. Enjoy!
Oh, and, I really wish corn started with an “s” so that I could have had triple alliteration.
