- As an amateur photographer shooting for 3 years or so now, I have accumulated hundreds of folders of RAW files in my laptop. I was wondering what to do with them. I have already deleted the unusable files but still there a lot of ‘em nicely taken photos but not good enough for photo competitions. Then I came upon this CS6 Photoshop tutorial by Serge Ramelli on YouTube that gave me a golden idea on what to do with my stored photos.
So I started experimenting. I am no Photoshop expert so please bear with me.
I started mixing and matching photos that may have been taken very well but the scene is boring with photos that are exciting enough to catch attention but the framing was not well taken… ^_^ so mixing both photos might get it somewhere in between the positive notes. ^_^
Sometimes you might catch a great moment but that great moment is not picturesque enough.
Last week I took a photo of this beached cargo ship on the shores of Songkhla beach. The actual feeling of looking at this behemoth vessel is not given due justice by the original photo i took. And here is the actual photo.
So I sort of played around with it. I found an old photo of clouds I took 2 years ago and combined it and voila.
As I got more excited I looked for other old photos that may be compatible with it and did another rendition of it.
And here is another one.
I uploaded these 3 photos on Pixoto.com and got their respective awards. Though they did not get first place I am happy to be in the top 10 out of hundreds of photos submitted every day. ^_^
Some boring photos might be worth storing in your hard drive so think twice before you start deleting files. ^_^ Cheers!
