This week we are taking a scene and exploring the possibilities of it. The possibility of rain was 80% in my area over the course of the last week, so that made the possibility of me venturing out 0%. However, as many photographers do, I have a number of folders that contain scenes and photos I have never gotten around to editing or working with fully. So I selected a folder that I had processed a few photos from at one point, but then let sit in an on line folder in storage.
The task was to take at least 12 photos of the scene selected. I actually took 13 of this particular scene. I remember it well because I pulled over to the side of a back country road when I saw this horse in his field. He was fairly far away from me, but became more and more curious about me, moving closer and closer to where I positioned myself along his fence line. The heavens had one of those changeable skies on a day that promised Spring would be right around the corner.
I framed out and took several different shots, some with sky, some without, some with distance...and then without distance as the horse began to approach me. In the end, I am pretty sure he thought my camera bag had some treats because he came right to the fence line.
I have put six of the images below, processed in different ways. The beauty of exploring your possibilities is that, not only do you have the opportunity of photographing a scene in many different ways, but you can then also explore different processing with your photos to set the tone of the message you want to send with each photo.
Enjoy the slideshow, and even more exploration of possibilities in the blog circle, starting with Kim Hollis of BARKography, based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Work your way around the blog circle until you are right back here where you started.
We are coming down the home stretch for 2016, folks. Have a great weekend!
