I set myself an intention at Karijini workshop with Christian Fletcher, Peter Eastway and Tony Hewitt to try new approaches and new ways of photographing.
I tried for the first time to take a portrait of a tree. And those who know me well know that I don’t usually “DO” trees. 🙂 Here are my first 2 attempts.
During the workshop my computer had a hissy fit – and all of the images I am posting here from my trip over the past few weeks are processed only in ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) at the minimum default size, and then resized to 800 pixels wide and then saved. I am unable to work using any layers…because the “insufficient RAM ” message pops up to remind me of the limitations of my current computer.
At least I can open some files and share them with everyone along our journey, and I am excited about playing with some of the images when I return to my studio.
So all my photographs from our trip are all my very simple edited offerings..which in themselves have an authenticity and rawness which I still find quite beautiful….. and show my exploration of trying new things. 🙂
