I enjoy listening to music when processing images (or writing blog posts.) Music is a lubricant of my own creative gears. It inspires me, touches emotions and sets a mood. I believe it also has a small but direct influence on how some of my processed images turn out.
I processed this image listening to Adele’s new “21” Album — what a voice, what a talent. If only I could make photos as well as she sings. I believe someone must have broken her heart for this Album — but pain often births beauty and new starts. Still, I’m not sure if I like it as well as her “19” Album but it definitely reflects growth — it may well be one of those you love the more you listen to it.
For this image I felt black and white made the most of the flowing softness of the misty waterfall. I remember standing before it, feeling the vibrations in the rock, while it made its own music.
