I was out shooting a restaurant yesterday and I photographed the chef. And his hands. And when I came home I put the photo into SnapSeed and started playing with my favorite sliders. Now I don't feel so left out. I can do work in a modern vernacular. If I append a magnificent manifesto then the sky is the limit.
I think it all looks perfect. Well, maybe the blur on the sides is a bit heavy handed. And, well, maybe the color is a little...too juicy. And, well, maybe the clarity slider got away from me a little bit.
But...ta da! It's my new style. And I wrote down all the filters I used to it's repeatable. Bon Appetit.
Edit: My client says "This is not your new style! Not if you want another P.O....."
note to self: It is possible to overdo the modern idiom.
