For this weeks challenge I decided to do a little experiment. None of us like to show our photos SOOC (straight out of the camera) but this is something we should achieve to do to cut down on editing time. I decided to set up a shot knowing that I was not going to do any editing. It was tricky because I decided to further complicate things and shoot this in studio. I had to get the lighting just right, take the photo in a direction that would not require any cropping, have all of my props without any distractions or spots and have the lines of the wood straight. When I downloaded this photo, I gave it careful inspection and thought – well what would I do if I could do any editing? The answer is – “not much”. I may bring up the contrast, lighten the shadows in the blackberries but other than that I am pleased to show you a photo SOOC. I used a 50 mm lens, f-8, 250 SS with a strobe on one side and a white bounce card on ther side. Lesson learned? Take more time in planning a shot and your editing time will be greatly reduced.
