  1. Greetings, Julia,

    From taking one of your workshops, a profound change in my thinking came from your teaching the point you emphasized in this great article about editing. That is, we can “play” with light and shadow, make light where there was none, turn day to night, and create shadows where there were none, all to sculpt a subject and create that third dimension. Your image “Komorebi III” illustrates the point perfectly. The Torii glows, because of your processing. If you’re willing to show the “before” version, I’d love to see it as an inspiration and example of how editing can take an image to that magical higher plane.

    Best wishes,


    1. Hi Sam! So nice to hear from you. Thank you for your suggestion. It’s actually a great suggestion, and I added the before version to the article, and a few words about the image. I am a firm believer that fine art photography can benefit hugely from a knowledgeable use of editing as to the degree to which it allows us to transform an image. This is why it is so important to know what you want and what is your vision for an image, because if you do, you can use editing to create a completely new world in your photograph. I’m glad you enjoyed the article and I hope to see you again soon.
