Shots and musings from San Diego based photographer, David Phillipich

Crushing Blacks at the Arboretum

Yes, easily the most racist blog post ever…but before I move on, let me clarify.  “Crushing blacks” is a term used in the photography world when you expose an image so that the “blacks” (darkest parts of your image) are “lost” – completely black without detail.  And if you don’t succeed, crush ’em in post.  I like this.  Always have.

A few weeks back, the class I’m assistant teaching field tripped to the National Arboretum here in DC.  I crushed some blacks.  I tried to compose.  I had fun.

Welp, see ya later…
