Muni Photog: Mark Denton

California Volunteers' Memorial with Antique Streetcar

We found photographer Mark Denton’s photo on Flickr earlier last week and really liked them. Here’s what Mark had to say about how he edits his photos:

I really consider myself a novice as well. What I do is really simple and self-taught. The only editing tool I use is the freebie part of Picnic found here on Flickr. I play around with all the editing choices and often I’ll spend a lot of time on one photo. When I come home from taking photos and I upload them on my computer, I usually choose one photo that really calls out to me. I have to look “in” that photo and not just at it. I try to keep all uninteresting or distracting elements out of the photo. Composition and then cropping are the most important thing for me – more important than special effects.

You can see more of Mark’s photos below and on his Flickr stream.
