Alicia Juniku – Wilmington North Carolina
You know that I’m a Wilmington, North Carolina Wedding Photographer, but did you know that I’m also something of a minimalist? I not only love empty, negative space in my home, but in my images as well. Sometimes I just feel like an image needs more space…and photoshop is my buddy when I feel like this. But you know, I’m not sure about this one. Below I’ve included three versions of the same image…..one with cathedral negative space, one with landscape negative space. Aaaaand the last version is *completely* unedited. That’s right folks, I’m sharing an image straight out of the camera…prepare yourselves. Also, you will notice that the unedited version is crooked….apparently I am incapable of taking a level photo. Clearly there’s something wrong with me. But I digress, stop reading and see what I mean:
Oh the glorious vertical negative space!
Oooooor more understated landscape negative space.
And also, just because I love you, and because I think you *might* find it interesting….here is the unedited RAW image. No tweaking, no editing….just my inability to take a straight photo in all its crooked glory.
Yes, I realize that I have a knack for converting gorgeous red heads to black and white. It’s a character flaw, and I’m working on it.
But seriously though, I’m genuinely interested in your opinion. Do you prefer the image with the vertical negative space, or the more cropped landscape negative space? Oooooor, option C: “These are crappy. Work on the original image, keep it in color….and for goodness sake straighten it out!” What say you? *****Comment below and let me know your thoughts!*****
Ooooor you can call/text me at 910.228.2457 and we can grab coffee (and cupcakes) together and you can tell me how to do better.
Oh, and also! Did I mention I had a baby a few months ago? Want to see some of my family photos? My ultimate joy, here.
