Often I like to play a little game with myself when I’m shooting. After I think I’ve got the “Money” shot it’s time to see if I can up the ante. Have another look. Try something else.
For example, I had this shot of the new Sheridan College Campus in Mississauga, Ontario.
I walked around the building took some of these below.
The problem was that I messed up the section of the shot at the bottom right hand side. You can see a white line where the edge of the building meets the sky.
I felt a little disappointed and abandoned it. I ended up working on this shot here.
A while later the low angle shot popped back into my head and I thought, why not strip in a different sky. I’d shot some sky plates and had one I thought would work. So I created a layer mask in Photoshop and came up with this one.
It worked out kind of nicely and I think I saved the image. It’s always worth it to take another look!!
