A Sense of Style - A Sense of Place

I've been lavished with the grace of a week in remote West Virginia, with Edster, Bruno, and yes, Arthur's first vacation and trip to this amazing state.

In editing some photos to give a Sense of Place, as challenged by Kat Sloma, of Sutton, West Virginia...I found a certain style emerging that appealed to me.  I hinted at it on the Groupies of Kim Klassen facebook page...

But I want to hear from you...by viewing these before and after photos...

I'm drawn to a lighter, hint of details kind of look...where it doesn't scream "photograph"...

Not sure if this will become "my style"...but dying to hear what you think...

Before


After



A bicycle on the porch...and I can just hear a boy dropping his bike, running through the front door hurriedly and yelling, "Mom!"

Before


After


Does this swing not call your name?

Before


After


So...I'm not certain if this is part of a trend...or a creative breakthrough...or nothing really that special...

My full sense of place of Sutton will be posted in the next day...

What fun!

  1. I think the lighter look gives the images a nostalgic look.

  2. I agree definitely a retro feel. 1970's is what I feel, having looked at a lot of pictures from my childhood lately :)

  3. I should have stated that the "before" photo is the RAW image without any editing.

  4. Oh yeah baby! I can see something exciting emerging here. The more 'ordinary' the initial capture, the more I notice it, i.e. the last shot.

    Keep going!
