How do you know when a picture has advanced unimprovably?
Sit still and do something
-narrated by Jessie Carveth
Nick has a term for the aim of photo editing (which he does with the attention, focus, and complexity often observed in procrastination. I rely on this as well. Procrastination works. Sit still and do something.)
At the point he feels satisfied, done, it has “advanced unimprovably”.
When I refashion an initial photo until it has advanced unimprovably, I save it. Then back to the original capture (camera’s achievement), to do a different version. Then another.
On this night, it was too cold to do an outside shoot. I did the photography equivalent of doodling, random photo editing.
By the end (see bottom) the world had turned red, green, oversaturated and hallucinatory, far beyond AU.
