For any fellow photo enthusiasts out there…I don’t know about you, but I occasionally go through old photos I’ve taken and think, What was I thinking when I edited those?
I feel like I’ve learned so much over the past few years when it comes to photo processing in Photoshop. The way I edit and process photos now is very different from the way I did several years ago. Not only have my abilities changed, but my tastes have changed as well. Sometimes I even think I enjoy playing around with photos in Photoshop more than actually taking the photos. But, let’s be real…that wouldn’t be nearly as rewarding if I didn’t take the photos myself.
So, since I’ve taken SO many pictures over the past 10 years, I thought I’d make a new weekly (or bi-weekly…or monthly) post featuring old photos that I’ve “remastered.” Keep a look out for future “Throwback Photo Editing” posts. It’s not going to be a before-and-after kind of thing. I just want to showcase the photos in what I now consider to be their “final draft.”
This week, I decided to re-edit some photos I took of my sister and brother-in-law in October of ’08. This was one of several engagement shoots I did for them (I know, I would have loved to have several engagement shoots too!). We took the photos at the Santa Monica Pier in California. Looking back now, I wish we would have incorporated some of the amusement rides into the photo shoot, but I do love the simplicity of these photos.
