To Edit or Not?

Here’s an interesting video that refutes some of the arguments against editing the images we create.

Sean Tucker on whether or not to edit your images

Club member Manfred Mueller pointed out these two images as a counter argument to the evils of post-processing.

This is Ansel Adam’s iconic Moonlight – Hernandez, New Mexico (which he made at least 1,300 prints of)…

Then of course, there is always the contact print of the original negative…

Henry Fernando on Contemplative Photography

The featured presenter at our December 6th meeting will be Henry Fernando speaking on “Contemplative Photography”.

From Henry’s website:

Henry Fernando is a photographer based in Ottawa, Canada. His two great passions in life are travel and photography. He believes that travel helps him discover a lot about himself. It provides him with a whole new perspective and understanding of this phenomenal world that we live in. Travel provides him not only with a sense of adventure, but it also opens doors to culture that do not revolve around fast food and social media.

Though originally trained in Biochemistry and later as an IT manager, he was always interested in photography. He experienced a renewed enthusiasm and appreciation for photography after taking a workshop in Contemplative Photography. The workshop opened his eyes to the rich and vivid colour and texture of the world around us.

Henry is trained in Contemplative Photography and studied Zen, Miksang, and Tao contemplative photography.

For more on Henry be sure to check out his website, his facebook page, and his latest eBook You Are Here: A Mindfulness Guide to Travel and Photography.

After Henry’s excellent presentation, he offered us free access to his eBook “Vision 365” available here.
