Over the past few years, I’ve seen my photography change and improve. Looking back on what I’ve learnt over the last 3 years, I’ve realised what an incredible journey it has been.

A comparison between the same image processed in 2008 and 2010.

Reflecting on past work…

I was looking though my older photographs and found one that I captured and processed way back in January 2007. This photo was taken on my old 6.2 mega pixel Sony T10 point and shoot camera. When I edited the photo original, it’s likely that it took me about 30 minutes.

Original Post Processing - 2008

…To create better work!

I decided to dig up the original photograph and re-process it to see how much my processing methods have changed. I spent about 2 minutes on this image and the results were great! Comparing it to the same photo above, It’s nice to see a noticeable improvement in my post processing skills, both time and tool usage.

I can only imagine that there are people out there that appreciate the original edit. What are your thoughts? Have you noticed your own post processing techniques change or improve over the past few years?
