|Leading Line (and Arches)|
The Black Sand Beach shown above is located on the Lost Coast of California. It's not exactly easy to get to, but I was excited to check it out. Unfortunately my camera was set to shoot just JPEGs for the previous postings on here. The JPEGs came out ok, but didn't give me the flexibility in post processing that RAWs give. After having played around with three or four possible shots I kept coming back to this one which I had shot with... my Moto X. I shoot with my phone to both be able to quickly share shots and to help geo tag photos when I get all the photos back into Aperture. I felt this shot worked more for the theme Leading Lines than what I had shot with the G3.
If you follow my VSCO Grid (insert cricket chirping noise here), you'll see the two photos are very similar. They are based on the same photo, just this one was processed completely in Aperture.
For February our theme is Textures. Hopefully I'll be better prepared.
