When Do you STOP?

11 Jan

Today I have been hit by a perfect, ‘when do you stop?’ scenario.

Mostly when in post processing, we usually aim for a specific look and touch to your photo. Well, at times that might not necessarily be the case, sometimes you may just be playing around waiting to see what really gives. In my today situation, I was looking to hit that  magenta/purplish I smile kind of backdrop color in “I smile” video by Kirk franklin. I know I have a long way to go.

Well, I almost hacked it, I think, But I did not, I kept going through these processes that I felt like they were pulling me back, and as I continued, I wasn’t just really feeling my outcome anymore. I decided to wing it anyway, and come with an interesting result regardless. That was not going to be such a hard task, I thought to myself. Believe me though, it was such hard work. Excruciatingly hard work (okay, I’m being dramatic)

The main reason however why I got what I got, is that I did not exactly fuse my vision with what I had at hand and thought carefully about what I was to do. Vision is key, and there is pre shoot vision, shooting-time vision and post process vision. Mine were kind of the same, that is why I got what I got.

So, when do you stop? You stop when you think you’ve achieved the closest thing to what you had in mind. It is very possible to keep going and going and never really hitting. When you get to that point when you feel like you should really stop because you are almost there, STOP. That is what I did today.

I plan to lean a process, a creative process over this period, and most likely share it with you guys in the near future. Here’s the video of what I was hoping to get, with a little more textured back drop. Hope to get it much better for a children’s home project I have in mind..
