First one from New Orleans. Haven't had a chance to really edit, so I'll probably go back and touch this one up when I go through all the rest. I'm still struggling a bit with street photography of people since it's not something I've ever really done, especially with a short lens (35mm equivalent).

 

Edit: I'm also terrible at editing to black and white. I sit there for like 10 minutes debating if I like color more or not. Then i second guess. Then I third guess. Then I edit and think I like it. Go back 5 minutes later and get bummed out and re-edit. Think I like it. Come back a few minutes later and second guess myself. Do some more minor adjustments. Repeat.

The ridiculous thing is I generally don't fuck with much besides basic adjustments. Might touch up the exposure a bit, contrast, highlights, shadows, whites and blacks in Lightroom. But if I let myself, I could keep coming back to a photo and making the tiniest little changes forever on some, "well, the blacks look better at -4 than -12...no, wait...-7...no, wait....-17. Yeah, that's it...no, wait..."

 

We're all our own worst critics. Probably why I've given away every single decent print I made from back when I had access to a darkroom for 2 or 3 years and am left with nothing but botched prints and test strips. No lie.
