In this presentation, Michael Smyth will take us through the thought processes and decisions we make in choosing what to edit in our images. We will avoid being too technical and concentrate more on the "why" and "what" of image editing in order to communicate our message or meaning contained in our photograph.
The challenge is to select your choice of five topics from the list below and create five photographs that depict, explain, show, illustrate or tell a story about the selected topics.
- Beautiful ugliness
- Less is more
- White on white
- Striking contrasts
- Indoor abstracts
- Street shadows
- Straight lines
- Light moods
