In the past I had done a series of blog posts that I called “Wayback Machine” posts. Basically they were blog posts where I would share some sort of content that I had previously shared, perhaps not on my blog, but was something that the world had seen before. I have decided to bring that series back, but to use it in a slightly different manner.
I was asked to do a presentation to the Olympia Camera Club on severe weather photography and storm chasing. As I was going through the images that I wanted to share for the presentation I realized that there were a lot of older storm images that I didn’t quite like any longer. There was nothing really wrong with them, but as I looked at them more and more I realized that if I would have captured that image today it would look entirely different from a post processing standpoint.
The reason for that is simple, the post processing tools that I have at my disposal now simply didn’t when these images were captured, and shared. This sort of got me going down a “dangerous” patch mentally. I realized that I needed to not only re-edit some of these older images but I also needed to clean up on weather gallery here on my site.
In the very near future I will share an image, or two, where I will show the original version along side my re-imagining of the same image. In the meantime, I am sharing this image which is a re-edit of an image that I originally called “Tagging Along” and was captured just outside of Phoenix Arizona during the 2011 monsoon season.
