'' A new artist is on the gram ''
The best way I can describe my editing style is similar to the Enhanche style. As someone newer to photography and editing I have researched and studied hours upon hours of information in a relatively short period. I view my photography and editing as a journey to find my signature style. One of the most important steps for me is to begin an edit immediately once I upload. Then come back to that edit after a few hours or the next day to decide if I still feel the same way about it initially.
For this edit, I did the necessary sharpening, white balance, radial, and graduated filter adjustments. I debated to keep the parking lines for symmetry purposes or to remove them. Ultimately, I chose to remove them; I also made a different adjustment to the sky and clouds as well as saturated the trees which is a departure from my usual style.
The road less traveled. When I am attempting to capture a particular shot, I position the car in appealing angles first. I then look for angles based on the current position of the vehicle. For this specific shot, the road added a sense of scale. It gives the feeling that it came from somewhere. The editing process was desaturation of the greens, to make the subject stand out. I removed the fire hydrant and cleaned up spots on the road. I often graduated and radial filters to highlight specific portions of a photo to draw the eyes to the subject.
