ON1 Inspiration — Looking Back To See Forward

I’m very happy to return to ON1 Inspiration. My sincere thanks to the team at ON1 for inviting me back to share another photo with you. As I write this, I am “armchair traveling,” browsing through photos of past travels to Asia. It has been more than 10 years since I’ve visited Asia. I am excited to return to this area of the world in the summer.

Looking through my older photos is one of the ways I prepare for a return visit. I make note of places I want to photograph again. I get composition ideas, too. I also see how I would photograph subjects differently, or process them in a different way. I see my past as a photographer, how far I’ve progressed, and hints of what my future holds. In a way, I’m looking back to see ahead.

In this ON1 Inspiration video, I process a photo I took more than 10 years ago at Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul, South Korea. It’s a photo of one of the many wooden doors in the palace. I’m able to bring out its character with a combination of Develop, Effects and Local Adjustments in Photo RAW.

Enjoy!
