Finding My Expression

April 12, 2011

Lately I’ve been a little less than inspired by the landscapes here on the Island. Until things begin to grow again and the birds return to nest, I don’t go out and take as many photos. What I do do at this time of year is go through a lot of my old photos and “play” with them.

I’m trying to find my “style”. Letting myself go wild in Photoshop in hopes that I might find the secret recipe to make my photos uniquely mine.

This is my latest one. I had a photo of this young Common Yellow-throat that had a few too many branches for my liking but the bird itself seemed pretty good. What could I do with that? Well, I could soften the branches and lighten them up, add a slight texture and fade out to the edges creating a light vignette. What do you think?
