San Diego Crystal Pier by Jen Consalvo

vision, editing & crystal pier

you’ll often hear me say that i am not opposed to some post-production once in a while. i do love the reality of photography and most of the time i like to let my photos speak for themselves. but other times, i feel that they have more to say and they need a little help! here are a number of shots i took while in pacific beach, california that i spent some time playing around with last night using adobe aperture. i enjoyed the images as they were, but the edits brought out something special that i felt about the area – making them a little more whimsical, colorful and fun. as the photographer, i believe it’s your job to have a vision and make sure the image communicates what you want it to. that’s what i’ve attempted to do here.
