As my “friend and editor” Ingrid, always says: “Casali sei una bestia!” – which translates more or less with “Casali, you are so gross!”.
She always refers to me as “gross” when it comes to developing and post-producing pictures. I am lazy, very very lazy. I do not study photography, I have not the patience to follow tutorials and friends’ suggestions. I shot in RAW and my pictures are viewed more or less as …raw!
I love beasts, they are very fascinating, but last time I spoke with Ingrid I felt really ignorant, therefore I decided that despite my love for beasts, I had to do something about that.
During these summer holidays, I downloaded a tutorial “Black and White – convertion and editing”. I watched it, I followed the instructions and..voilà! My RAW are less ..raw!
I decided to start practising with the photographs already published in the “Scandiano Old Lady” project. I must admit that the difference is subtle and evident at the same time, what I really prefer because I do not like heavy post- production.
The “new” photographs are now online on my silviacasaliphotography website – I am curious to know your opinion about them.
