Travel into the wild…

Wild forest awaits me...

Wild forest awaits me…

Yesterday I met a young photographer and she showed me some of her urban explorations….pretty cool stuff.  Well talking to her I also made me long to get out a shoot myself.  You know work and play often don’t mix it up very well…and the client projects I did make over the last month were for internal release only!

So after we got home, fed the kiddos and enjoyed a quick date night out I realized I still had some daylight left.  Instead of urban exploration I did some deep forest exploration from my backyard.  I spent the rest of the night playing with development settings, Aperture, Capture One, OnOne, Nik Suite….just to see what I could do.  This is one of the three I liked.  I wanted it to make me think I was really deep in a mysterious woods. I hope I fooled you!

So the moral of the day is..as Bob Coates would say…take some time to play and imagine.  Sometimes it unlocks doors you would not know existed.
