Post-processing

Okay, so... I have to give a huge props to all you photographers out there. I have a better appreciation for you all after my recent adventures in post-processing.

I did a shoot for a musician friend a couple weeks ago; portraits with his various instruments for his soon-to-be website. And while I loved the experience, and had a fun time shooting with Kyle, I have to say that the post-processing was a pain in the butt. Now, admittedly, I did not have everyday access to the computer where the images were uploaded and processed, but it wasn't even really that extensive of work. Basic stuff... for the most part.

Anyway, just thought I'd mention that I've learned a thing or two, and promise to think twice after a shoot at how much work the photographer might have in front of them.

There's still no real excuse for not having images after 6 months. Absolutely no excuse after a year. Ahem. Hint, hint.

So that being said, I'll include a few from the shoot with Kyle.

You should also be getting an appreciation for why photographers who try to get everything right in camera do so when possible - it's not always a philosophical thing, it's usually just less work

You're right Doug. But I thought that just goes without saying. :)
