I was going through a bunch of older work files of shots I started and never finished for one reason or another when I came across this shot. I thought it had potential but my original work on it was pretty terrible so I started back with the original file and was able to get a very pleasing edit in about 30 minutes. I recall spending a lot of time struggling with this originally for whatever reason. I’ve certainly changed and improved my editing in a year but it’s still funny to think how as we grow as photographers something that seemed difficult just a short while ago is now seemingly easy. This is why I like revisiting older shots from time to time as I often find myself able to make a shot work that simply wasn’t working before.
