There is always some frustration in editing – trashing the ones that got away, making decisions on which ones to work on. Frankly, I have too many good starting points in the set from this evening. That is a curse. I am faced with looking at over 100 shots of my own work and picking a few to carry the story. On this particular evening, I was not in a good mood and frankly I didn’t feel like the outcomes would be as good as the musicians and the music deserved. Perhaps I should be in a bad mood more often.
Maybe you can feel a little of what I deal with in the two portraits. They are the same original image with different cropping and toning. “One” gives you more context. “Two” is just Hernan – close up. Both have their own perspective and value. I didn’t expect as much detail as there is in this shot. The light level is low, the ISO is set high (6,400) and the subject is quite animated. It shouldn’t have come out like this, but it did. I’ll have to leave it to others to decide which is a better portrait.
