hello @ lj! no time for a real post, but i figured i would give you all this glimpse into the creative process of photography. i am currently working on this series of covered bridges that i want to shoot. part of the prep is to work up some lightroom presets and test images to see how to go about shooting the subjects i want to capture the exact look i am visualizing. the below image is the general look i am going for, a very dark, blue toned creepy foggy forest look.

once i started shooting tho, this is the light that i ended up liking the most. i used some blue gelled offboard flashes to throw more highlights on the bridge railings. i cooled the white balance to bring more of a cool tone to the image as a whole.

once i got home and brought the images into post-production this is where i ended up. warming the image up and bringing the tone more green made the whole image feel more like lost summer, which i felt worked better for this particular bridge.

i still will shoot the covered series how i was originally intending. but this is a neat look at how the creative process can go into unexpected directions and bring you interesting and beautiful results.
