This is a scene we saw earlier where because of the direction of light I am getting these wonderful tire tracks across this field leading into the moon. The problem is though, when I shoot this, those tire tracks may not be as visible in my final picture as they are here. This is where I am thinking about post-production. I am seeing the shot and knowing, wow! If I darken up those tire tracks, if I get this scene really contrasty, I am going to have something very, very cool. All the way back to the beginning of photography, photographers have, when they've been out shooting, kept one eye in their post-production, be that darkroom, or digital post-production.
They've known that to get certain shots, they have to do certain things in post-production. If you're thinking about post- production as you are shooting, a whole new raft of subject matter can appear. If I didn't know that I could darken those tire tracks, I may not think of this as a scene that was worth shooting. We are going to come back to this subject when we talk about post-production.
