From Camera to Personal Vision

When you shoot photographs in Raw format, which I nearly always do, the images show reduced contrast and saturation, and appear softer. I started by dealing with these issues using Lightroom but continued to work to make the image more like what I saw and felt at the time. After reaching the middle image, the history window in the program showed more than 60 entries. One thing still bothered me. I wanted more space on the left side of the picture between the boat and the edge. Over to Photoshop to use the content aware fill function, then back to Lightroom for a few more tweaks, and the final image on the left has me satisfied.

I am a fine art landscape and nature photographer living and working on Cape Cod. The area, and my familiarity with it, leads to compositions of light, weather, and frequently water in its many forms. I share my gallery with my wife Diane Heart, whose porcelain and raku pottery blends beautifully with my work
