We can edit photographs by using filters; adjusting exposure, brilliance, colour, warmth, saturation and highlights to name a few. If we don’t trust our own judgement and creativity then we can even apply an ‘already made’ filter. We can make a scene look better than it is and turn a very average setting into a masterpiece.
I sometimes use filters in my own life. I can make something look much better or worse than it actually is.
‘What Does It Matter?’ Is a question we can ask ourselves in order to see things as they really are. We need to bring the important things into focus and blur those that do not deserve our full attention.
‘What Does It Matter?’ has served me exceptionally well as my everyday, ordinary filter.
