Photographer's Note

My plan was to show here just one picture from UCLA but a couple of people wrote that they didn’t see anything from UCLA before, that is why I added the previous photo and this is the third one.

Unfortunately, these are all my old print scans. I think photography has changed very much nowadays. For example, knowing that some pictures may come out not sharp I can take multiple shots now without any additional cost for printing. When I lived in the USA, I took 3600 photos. It does not sound too much but imagine you have to print them all and pay to send them over across the ocean. These photo albums take half of a bookshelf. Another thing: nowadays it is so easy to correct the perspective, sometimes I just take a bit wider photo with the thought that I will lose some content in the process of perspective correction. In the past I tried to take the photo in its final form. That means that looking at my old photos now I sometimes see the perspective distortion and it just feels not straight. Of course, when I correct it, I lose some width at the edges and it becomes too tight like in this photo. Quite surprisingly, I realized that the sharpness can be rescued. I am not sure how it worked but the recent photos which I showed, appear sharper than prints of which they are scans from. Unfortumately, in the recent three UCLA photos I noticed some excess of green color. I corrected it manually so they may be less than perfect.

This picture was taken from almost the same point of view as the previous one. In this photo you see Kerckhoff Hall.
