I’ve had a lot of requests lately for more of my “Before & After” posts. I was working on my shots from the Fort Ticonderoga event a few weeks ago, and I felt that this image was a good example of how I often spend a lot of time turning what my camera saw into what I personally experienced. To me, photography is about portraying a moment, and sometimes the camera doesn’t give a very true depiction, which leaves the photographer to fix that through processing. Ansel Adams did it in the darkroom, I do it in Adobe Lightroom.
Anyway, here’s my shot of an early morning moment in the British camp at Fort Ticonderoga. Click the link to check out the differences!
