Don’t ruin your originals by editing them without taking a few steps to make everything reversible. That is the idea behind “non-destructive edits.” Here are a few shots that I edited and can go back and keep editing if I needed to because they are completely non-destructive… Adjustment layer Before… After… I added an adjustment […]

While in Provo this last weekend I went on a short hike and found this awesome rusty bridge.
