Lavender Clouds

January 28, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Ten years ago this coming May, I went with two other photographers to the Oregon coast. This was a time of transition for me as I took my film cameras and my digital cameras. I shot many of the same scenes with the two different cameras. At the time, I was impressed with the immediate feedback I got from the digital camera. I could see immediately if the exposure was correct and whether other details within the photo appeared as I wanted. Not too long after that trip, I began to use the digital cameras more and more, and the film cameras less and less. And it has only been within the last few years that I have began to realize the potential in a digital image as I continue to learn how to process it. And only this week, as I have worked on these ten year old images have I began to see them as I saw the original scene. Was the cloud color this intense that evening? If not, it was how I remembered it. And I can create a digital image that expresses that day more fully than the transparency that was almost correct. I loved film, but I don't look back. One can do so much more with a digital image, even to make the clouds lavender.
