Friendly Friday – Fake

This challenge made me think about photo editing and photo staging and how much it can been seen as faking. I know a photographer that specializes on burlesque portraits that are heavily staged and edited. Although I recognize the artistry involved it’s not for me. I’m more interested in what is happening around me and I try to capture those moments. Sometimes I get them just right. Sometimes I think I got them but I haven’t really or yes, they are there but then there’s something else there too, that I’ve missed at the time. This is one of those shots. I was trying to get that amazing light and then, at my computer, I found the insect, and then I really liked it black&white. So, in a way, I’m always “faking” a little bit… this shot is not what caught my attention in the first place, but it is where it ended.
