This morning I started to revisit my old photos that I have taken over the last year to see if there were any worthy images of editing. Over the past two years, I have learned so much not only about the camera, but about Photoshop and Lightroom, so I wanted to put my skills to work. These images are of something very simple – No. 2 Pencils – how mundane…how boring….or are they? Sometimes an easy way to improve your photography is to force yourself to create a dynamic image from an every day object.
Something as simple as a pencil can make a beautiful, even dramatic, photographic image. After importing the above four images into Lightroom, I tried to edit them differently in order to create fine art.
