September 7, 2019 — Lake Tahoe. Getting later. Getting darker. I opened up to f/10 to let in a little more light, and let it go for 10 seconds at ISO 64. Click. Slow pan to the left and back to the right. Clack.
In dealing with abstracts, all of the hard-and-fast “rules” go out the window. The only consideration left in post-processing is “what do I want to show?” Something in the image suggests a direction and I explore it. Other things reveal themselves along the way. The paths often branch out, inviting more exploration. I can save out as many options as I want. They’re all equally valid.
But in the end, one stands out.
