Mitch Zeissler’s Imagecraft Bootcamp challenge this week is… Making Limonade. Well… when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
Ok, not literally, though. Have you ever been in that frustrating situation where what you had wanted to capture is not exactly what you (nobody else to blame…) did? Now, we’re talking.
While waiting for my stepdaughter, I was making portraits of horses at a manège, when I saw this dog’s occupying the exit door. It was dark and I had a 45mm (equal to 90mm) lens. His sad or tired expression made me want to cuddle him, but I was afraid that he would run away if I approached him.
Well, I traded a hug for a shot and clicked fast, using auto settings. I immediately saw that it was a mediocre shot. I didn’t delete it, and never did anything with that, until Mitch’s request to find our worst image disaster, and go through the post-processing steps he has taught us over the past several weeks.
So thanks Mitch, I am happy to have rescued the cute dog.
Here is the original. I know, I know, it wasn’t my best…
Thanks for visiting.
