So last week, I had a play, and last week, I found this image..
Yes, it's my wedding day...at the time, I envisioned us standing upon the rugged rock, majestic sky behind us, veil blowing dramatically in the wind...then when we received our unedited photos, I remembered we were in residential Ewloe and not the isolated, undisturbed coast of the Highlands...so I put this image down to a 'spare' and one to just 'keep on disc', and anyway, the stupid planked fence thing in the foreground was a complete eyesore.
I opened this back up when I looked through my unedited images again and it suddenly clicked that all I needed to do was erase the fence to make this a much more 'acceptable', and maybe even usable photograph of us. I dismissed my previous idea of majestic ruggedness and focused on what the image was giving me instead- a pretty decent bride/groom portrait with a bit of a twist.
THANK YOU PHOTOHSHOP!! With some clever cloning and my usual tweaking, this image is now more than 'adequate', and probably one of my favourites of our day..
And just for a little variety, I cropped it too so I now have both landscape and portrait styles to choose from.
This is why I NEVER delete photos from shoots!
