Every once in a while, I like to take a look through my photo archive and see how far I’ve come from where I began my journey in photography. Sometimes I even like to try my hand at a “Photo Remake”. In other words, I like to see if I can recreate certain shots and see how close I can get to the original image while still keeping things fresh. I know that sounds a bit complicated and even a bit like an oxymoron, but it’s interesting to try.
About five years ago, I was walking along the beach and took a photograph of a flower growing on the edge of one of the small boardwalks that lead from the road to the beach. Some of you who have been following me for a while might recognize this image.
I hadn’t planned to attempt a “Photo Remake” of this shot when I embarked on my most recent beach trip, but I kind of stumbled upon the opportunity. Here’s the result.
Attempting to recreate an old photograph in a new light can have interesting results. Sometimes the result is better than the original, and other times the result is a miserable failure. Either way, it’s a good way to keep learning.
Until next time…
