I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

Day 145 (August 3) - Through the Window

So, day 1 of 30 days of Blank. I wasn't feeling particularly inspired today, and because today was a non teaching day I neglected to get a shot at school. I'm running out of things to shoot around the house; there are just only so many times that I can post a picture of the cat.

So today I decided to shoot the windows, again, but this time from the inside out, and let the wall inside (which is white in real life, by the way, but not lighted here so it looks black) become a frame for them. And as I have promised to do for the month of August, here is a before and after for you of the original raw file, and then my edited version. Pretty standard edits today, the toughest part was getting the contrast curve in Lightroom right.


  1. I'm a little confused...

    You say "here is a before and after for you of the original raw file, and then my edited version". By my arithmetic, that totals to three images that you say you are presenting, but I only see two. I hope that the top one is your intended product, because that's the one I like :)


  2. Sorry, should have been clearer, one before (raw) file, and one after (edited).

    And the top one is definitely my intended product! Glad you like it.


I love comments! I read and cherish every single one. Go ahead, make my day.
