Cards on the table, this was mostly edited on the iPhone 5s, but I also used Photoshop CC on my iMac. After I uploaded the iPhone edit to my mac, I saw a lot of spots that I wanted to dodge and burn, to mold the light of the scene. It seemed way easier to just do it on my mac since I had PS open and my wacom tablet out. I was right. It would have been annoying to do all that work on the iPhone and upload it again. Work smarter, not harder…right?
I don’t quite know what it is about roads and fall colors that we all love. It seems like a shot that a lot of photographers are drawn to, thats for sure. It’s definitely something the four of us were on the lookout for in Maine. Maybe it has to do with the fleeting beauty of fall, the contrast of the color of the leaves with the road, or maybe its just because its pretty and we should stop overthinking it haha.
Why do you think we are drawn to these kind of shots?
After visiting 6 states in New England, I feel like I can safely say most of the states look exactly the same from the highway. You have a road lined with so many trees that you can’t see anything beyond them. The only difference during my travels was the amount of fall colors in those trees. It’s a little boring, and probably easy to zone out while driving. Anyways, thats why I call this a classic New England shot, all of the roads are lined with trees. One of the first things I noticed, when I got back to California, was we have open space out west. It felt weird after seeing the same thing for weeks.
This iPhone shot was edited with Snapseed and Mextures, along with PS CC.
