In UI design, we sometimes use the squint test to determine whether we've found the right balance of contrast and hierarchy in our work. The idea is that, when you squint, the tiny details disappear and you're left with a somewhat fuzzy depiction of the main shapes and colors you've used. This is supposed to represent how a fresh set of eyes might digest a screen at first glance.

A fast forwarded recording of an edit is sort of like that for me. It's a lower fidelity representation of the creative process, where the individual settings and values get lost in the sped-up visuals, but the larger editing patterns remain pronounced. It's kind of a nice way to reflect on what makes me me.

And if you're interested in catching a glimpse of what makes me me (in a purely photographic sense, of course), you might appreciate this timelapse edit of my Black Bay Fifty-Eight. Enjoy!
