“This is for daddy…”
Side Story :
Other than post-processing issue that I mention yesterday, my friend also told me that I was just lucky to get good photo.
“Of course! It’s always about luck. I cannot control the street, so I have to be lucky to get something interesting out of it. Sure, I have to prepare the camera and all, but I have to be lucky to be at the right place at the right time.
Actually, that’s the fun of Street Photography — to get lucky”
Again, he was surprised that I didn’t feel offended and then try to defend myself.
Well, again, because I think it is true.
You know what? Photo in this post is the ultimate example of luck (and how post-processing helps).
This was accidental shot — I unintentionally hit the shutter button when I was adjusting my camera setting while holding it in front of my belly (I was looking at the small control panel/screen on top of my camera).
Later on, in post-processing, I then adjust the horizon, crop and some other stuffs to get this result — which I find quite interesting… Lucky, eh? ;-)
How about you? Will you feel offended if someone told you that your photos are good because you are lucky?
