First of a thousand words.
Pictures are the truest way to measure what we see in the world around us. They are a way to capture a moment in time, preserve it, and experience it again whenever we choose. It also affords us a way to share that moment with others.
The picture shared in this post was taken a few years ago with a Canon Powershot SX10. The room was horribly lit, drastically yellow from floor to ceiling, and of the hundreds of clicks from the digital lens only a handful of noteworthy creations appeared. What made this photograph salvageable was a careful edit starting with a wash in black and white. The sides were cropped to take out some of the background clutter and a close-up spot check was done to remove any blotches on the model's skin.
