Girl in a Window

Just went through some of my old photographs, that I discarded. This photo I found a bit boring. But after a little brush up with blacks, saturation and clarity in Lightroom, I found the colors to give something new to the photo. So instead of deleting it, I decided to keep it. Sometimes a photo needs to be put aside before you use it or delete it…Hope you like it.

  1. Very striking! It’s indeed very important not to delete all of the files you aren’t 100% happy with at first glance. I often go through old photos and realize I dislike previous favourites and prefer other ones.

  2. I think it’s important to remember that there must have been SOME reason you took the photograph in the first place, even if it isn’t always obvious. I refrain from deleting even ‘looser’ images for a while, and sometimes I can unearth that reason later. Give in to your subconcience. Take the photograph and look for the meaning later.
