Mistakes were made...

I take pride in trying to produce quality images that look like there is nothing out of place…

However, there are TONS of images that usually never make it off my camera that are in sharp contrast to this. 

I have a three stage process for going through my images after a session…

Step One:

When I get out of the water, I open my housing and start going through all the pictures that I have taken..  Anything that I see that I see that I don’t like…I will simply delete right there…

Step Two:

Once I have all the of the known crappy shots off my memory card, I will upload the rest to my computer and import into Lightroom 5.  From there I will go through all my shots again.  If I see any that have a lot of water spots, the color is crap, my focusing missed…I will then delete as well. 

Step Three:

Lastly, I will edit the rest.  I have three different categories that I will actually export to after editing.  First is my “A” shots.  These are the 5 star, what I consider my best from each session.  Next is my “IG” shots.  This is the next rung of good shots.  I consider them to be good shots, but nothing really special about them to bump them up into the “A” folder. The last folder is the “FB” or Facebook folder.  These are shots that, like my IG folder, are good…almost A quality, but just didn’t make my cut.

As you can see, I have an extensive little process after a shoot.  I like to let you behind the current of what I do sometimes…  With that, I would also like to show you some of the shots that are usually weeded out in my editing phase…

 

 

 

 

 

Water spots and so much blur...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tucking under just a slight sec to early

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Same as above, however there is something about this one that I still like.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think you can see why this one would be deleted...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A shot right down the pipe of young photog, Clayton Burns...but to many spots for me to deal with.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My angle was a little off on this one as well as the water blur.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another with my angle being off...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Water spots...going under too soon...you name it...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Got my camera around a little to quickly...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This a look at what gets deleted....later this week, will be a look at some of what I considered were a few of the best from this shoot..
