I say “old” bread because even though I shot the loaf fresh from the bakery, these images have sat in my hard drive for a very long time.
I’ve been updating the blog with a few backlog posts and thought I would add some work from a year ago. It’s a simple single light setup but I was still getting comfortable with post-production. I wasn’t happy with how they came out of the camera and at the time, I couldn’t compensate in Photoshop. The images remained untouched until now, when my editing skills have improved with experience. I’ve heard of many photographers going back to their previous work and doing the same. Even though I wasn’t happy with the images then, revisiting them a year later has turned them into some of my favorites from my early work.
