Post-processing and cropping can totally change the feel and focus of a photograph.
Last week Matthew and I tagged along to New Smyrna beach with my mom and little cousin Gator and (as always) I took a few photos of our visit there.
Sometimes I know exactly how I want a photo to look, other times I edit a photo five (or more) completely different ways before I decide which look just “clicks”. I thought it might be interesting to show how different the same photo can look when treated differently.
For the first version I did not crop the photo at all (which is normally how I leave things. I always try to frame the photo how I want it IN camera while shooting) and applied a pinkish sepia treatment,
I used a square crop for this second version, left the color, but applied a faded vintage treatment.
