It’s been a long time since I would shoot someone and then discover that I had a telephone pole sticking out of their head, when editing my slides. Slide after slide, and it’s the same thing! If I was lucky, I might have something usable after I changed my shooting position. I’m better than that now, but you learn to look at more than just your subject when you shoot…that’s all about being a professional, or at least it should be! O.K. end of rant! Sometimes though, there’s no choice when shooting on location. Sometimes the background just plain sucks! I discovered the fun of taking a “real” image and creating a “surreal” image. I created a library of backgrounds, especially skies…sunsets, storm clouds, blue skies, etc. This way I can take an image and create something new and hopefully exciting. Here’s a couple of sample images followed by the originals…hope you enjoy them.
