Don’t Do It!!

Feb 22, 2020

Photo(s) of the Week

taken February 20, 2020

I know, I know…not a very good photo, but I think you will understand what’s going on, and possibly why I gave this post the name I did in a minute or so!

When I took this photo, my finger hovered over the delete button on my camera, longer than I really wanted it to. My first instinct was to immediately delete it. But my instructor’s voice from Shepherd U came into my head…

“Don’t Do it…”

(AMAZON: The Secret Life of Salvadore Dali)

And I’m glad I didn’t! It may not be the best photo, originally, but if you’re willing to put some time and effort into it, you just may be able to turn it into a piece of work! It may not always work out, but…at least you tried! And you can believe me when I say, not every “bad” photo turns into something good. But…it’s worth it not to delete the bad ones immediately! It can always be deleted later, if it’s not workable.

So…all of the photos I just showed you came from that one “bad” photo. Crops, filters, distortions…photoshop is and can be so much fun!
