Filtered Out – Not Overflowing

Images that didn’t make it into the Autumn Reservoir Walk I recently produced. It wasn’t that I was un happy with the composition or quality of the images – they were just not essential in describing the walk around the reservoir.

Reservoir Reflection

I had two shots like this for the “Summer Reservoir – Evening Walk” video and the choice of which one to use was not a difficult one to make. This one was looking in the opposite direction to which I was walking!

Splash!

This image did not make it into the finished StillWalks video from Lower Lliw Reservoir but the sound did. The image that accompanies the sound in the video is of the resultant ripples in the water.

Accounting for the Rejects

Over the next couple of weeks I am going to be posting a selection of images that didn’t make it into some recent StillWalks videos.

I have recently been working on a series of StillWalks videos around Lower Lliw Reservoir near Swansea, South Wales. During a production day I will take between 300 and 800 photographs. On average, only 10% of these will actually make it into the finished videos, around 50 – 60 images.

I use Adobe Lightroom to review and filter out the images I want to keep or reject and this can sometimes be a difficult process. Post processing individual images is not done until the penultimate stage of selection when the decisions become harder to make.

Overall the images need to tell the story of the walk. Along with the field recording, they need to show progression. The image below was left out of the Summer evening video because the photo was taken facing backwards on the walk and the fence is therefore on the wrong side and not in keeping with the rest of the sequence.
