Lately I’ve come to the realization that most any photo will look much better after being processed in Photoshop.
Here’s a post-processed image from my trip to Ghana:
It has some technical flaws (it was taken through a window and is crooked), but it’s a pretty good shot technically…
There it is straight out of the camera. Notice how everything looks a little hazy, the colors are washed out, and everything is blue/green?
It’s kind of like becoming a nut about cleaning your wheels or watching HDTV: you suddenly realize that what you’ve been used to is really pretty bad, and can’t help but notice problems where you hadn’t seen them before.
I’ve recently begun processing a lot of the pictures I took in Ghana… And I’ll probably be putting some more up in the coming days.
