A Popcorn Day In Pastel, Beige and Red
There are 2 types of photos in the world – Pre-Photoshopped and Post-Photoshopped!
I don’t quite understand the need or obsession to use Photoshop on every single photo; in fact, I actually like the raw and unexpected outcome of old-school cameras that use film. That’s why I also collect Lomos and Polariods – you can try your best to get a good photo but there’s no way you can reverse or change the final result (unless you do something with the film when you are developing it).
Nonetheless, since we have been experiencing an intensive rainy season in Hong Kong for the longest time I can remember this year, Photoshop sometimes really comes in handy! For example, for this set of photos, it was pouring with rain and there was very little natural sunlight; however, with some Photoshop skills (mainly adjusting the brightness and moving the bar on the colour saturation… :p), the photos don’t seem that dull or “grey” anymore. Yay!
There’s a popcorn shop called Garrett Popcorn in the IFC mall in Central, Hong Kong and I have been a loyal customer of theirs since the day they opened! Getting a bag of their Chicago Mix (Caramel & Cheese) popcorn has always been a good cure for any kind of miserable day – so I grabbed a bag to cheer me up! Do you think replacing your clutch or handbag with a bag of cheerful and tasty popcorn could become a new trend?!
