So tonight I knuckled down on my Scotland 2017 folder, processed through memory cards and countless Lightroom sliders, curves and YouTube editorial tutorials to try to get to grips with finding my own style of processing photos.
It's tricky not to be influenced with what's trending and what's popular across Instagram and flickr, try not to go wild with the edit and way over the top. But hey! It's fun to look at the before and after to see what you have created from seemingly nothing, or a very plain looking image into something positive.
Here's one of the first images from our Scotland road-trip, in the south of Cairngorms national park in the Scottish Highlands after our first night camping back in July. @mor61e catching some birds-eye angles of the cars below. #eskimo
It was dry and comfortably cool, so we set of on our first exhilarating, spirited drive throughout the entire route of the #OldMilitaryRoad. We left camp at 8am and hugged the roads at exciting speeds feeling how it is often described by automotive journalists in press-plated supercars for ourselves.
Perfect visibility and no surprises; there are no words for the combination of views and the satisfaction of a well designed road, escalating high above sea level to abandoned ski-resorts past lifts and fencing back down twisty sections opening into jaw dropping vistas that look like something from the Lord of the Rings. And this was only day 2! You must visit Scotland. More soon!
