Mike Walks on Water
This shot was a favorite from our August trip to Copper Harbor. But like many great shots it was taken in bad light at the end of a long day. I wanted more light but I wanted this image, too. I once had a young man say to me if you use Photoshop you are not a good photographer. A good photographer, he said, waits for the shot. I am not a photographer that puts my life on hold. I am not a tripod carrying photographer. I do not have an assistant to carry my bags. I am a trail seeker, hiker, who takes photos. There may come a time when I research a shot and plan, and bring that tripod–but for now I take shots on the fly. Here are before and after shots. Let me know what you think of the corrections. (curved, brightness/contrast, hue, and midtone and shadow color tweeks).
