Intentional camera movement coupled with some creative Photoshopping.
Aimless, no destination in mind, a path to follow, mysteries in nature.
There, beyond the crystal-like barrier, lies another reality. A place of pine forests and broad leaf trees. A place where one can walk on solid ground without fear of slipping silently in to the dark water. Make it to the trees, there lies safety along the October Road.
Shapes rise from the watery bog. There is light and there is movement. Who knows what lies beneath the water, beneath the light, what is hiding, waiting to surprise us? These are the big questions along the October road.
It often happens that an idea does not become what one wishes. The execution in the moment seemed like it would work. But the realization when editing is that not much can be recovered from the available information. So, what to do? I’m not one to just give up and walk away. I will take time and play with sliders and curves to see what I might create from the data. The October Road yields an interesting possibility.
A little flick of the camera, some fun in Photoshop using the oil paint filter and autumn takes on a slightly different look along the October road.
A bit of intentional camera movement, a bit of post production and a smidge of creative interpretation leads to flaming fall color. A little something along an October Road.
What seemed like a perfectly normal place is transformed by a shift of perspective and a twist of the camera.
A good reflection can go either way.
