… or, actually, deep inside photoshop.
I know I’m the most amateur of amateur photographers. I don’t spend enough time thinking about the golden ratio and shit to really hone my craft. But I like snapping pics. It’s fun. And I love spending time in the darkroom, though I’ve given up processing my own film and stick to developing pictures.
I’m still stretching my wings with the new digital camera, and I’m surprised how much I LOVE photoshop. I’ve always been a “it’s not true art unless you capture that genuine moment” kinda gal. Plbht. Fake it! ohmygod, it’s so fun what you can do! Check out this morning’s endeavor:
I futzed around for a bit while I was waiting for someone to come pick up my TV, and here’s the finished product:
Yes, I may be a little clone-stamp happy, but jeezus that’s fun. I love making things disappear. Screw the genuine moment. That looks way better, and really, that’s what I was seeing when I took the picture to begin with. The rest just got in the way.
I can now reshape reality to suit my whims. Bwah hah hah.
