So I stumbled across this Facebook page, Fort Hood Photographers. They are supporting local photographers with paying clients, but are also sharing good photography info and inspiring the members to do the 52 week photo challenge. There are a lot of these out there, but this one fits for me because it's stuff I can actually do (nothing over the top fancy fancy.) This one is really fun because the winner of each week will have their photo shown as the cover photo for the Facebook page for the entire next week.
Since I'm late getting started, I'm jumping into this at week 11 - the entire challenge can be seen here. I also convinced my good friend, Taneesa Dunham to do this with me. She's taken a break from photography and NEEDS to get back into it. Some of her amazing photos can be seen here on her 500px page.
So, to get to the point...
What is SOOC? SOOC stands for Straight Out Of Camera. There is SO much post-production that goes into
"processing" an image, SOOC has become a new term to represent the REAL photo that comes out of the camera before PhotoShop Jedi Master skills come into play. A SOOC image has no contrast or exposure enhancements, no cropping, and definitely no magic wizard level 5 tricks applied.
I took this at the Laura Plantation in Vacherie, LA when my husband and I vacationed in New Orleans last month. I hope you enjoy!
