This photo challenge was extremely hard for me! SOOC stands for straight out of the camera and it made me realize just how much I rely on editing! Not just that I rely on it but that I photograph anticipating it. For example, I purposefully underexpose backgrounds and leave extra room for cropping because I know that when I'm editing, those things will give me lead way to accomplish what I want. This isn't something that is new to me with digital, I was trained to do it with film. I photographed in a way that would work best for my darkroom style. It's just carried over into digital. Anyway, after looking through a few folders and finding nothing that I love SOOC, I decided to just pick an image. Here it is. I'm hoping the sweetness factor will overcome the lack of a finished look! You should know, it's killing me to leave this un-cropped! Thank you for the eye-opening challenge Faith.
