As I walked, I kept looking for stories to tell. The main two that kept jumping out at me were the amount of garbage on the side of the road, and the first signs of spring. Amazingly, I saw a bag for In N Out burger in a ditch. The closest In N Out is like 150 miles away.
In the end, I chose to shoot something totally different, because I drawn to the lines of the image.
I edited with Lightroom Mobile, which is free if you have a subscription to photoshop and lightroom. I just started using Lightroom mobile recently, and I have to say I’m a fan. I love having most of the same tools as I do on my mac. Plus, it syncs to Lightroom on your desktop, which means you can even make edits on your desktop, and they will sync to your iPhone. Pretty cool!
My favorite features in Lightroom mobile are the clarity slider, the shadow and highlight sliders, and the vignette (which is one of the better vignette tools I’ve seen.)
After making the edits in Lightroom mobile, which you see in the above image, I decided to try a painterly look with Artista Impresso (below.)
Finally, I’m starting a mailing list. I was going to announce this alongside the launch of my new site, but there are still issues that need to be worked out there. As a little incentive to sign up, I’m going to be giving you an ebook that I’m finishing up, which is my guide to the Big Sur Coast. I share a lot of my favorite locations, what you’ll find there, and when you might want to visit them.
The mailing list will be used to share info about upcoming books, workshops, and stuff like that. So go here to sign up, and I’ll send you the Big Sur book as soon as its finished, which could be within a week.
