|Lightroom : before and after|
What a photographer does between taking images off of a memory card and delivering them as a finished product is often one of the biggest parts that makes up their individual style or look. When I edit, it's mostly in Adobe's Lightroom. Its a form of photoshop you could say but it focuses more on making global adjustments to your image. I usually push to get an image that looks and emphasizes most about what and the way I remember it. That's what I show in a typical edit I might give a landscape image above.
Below, I show taking it further with Lightroom and pushing the RAW file to it's limits for the HDR look. Not my typical style, but there you have it,
|Lightroom, before and after of a natural edit and then taking|
it to an unrealistic, HDR style place..
Next, I compare in lightroom my natural style of edit I'll call it, with my interpretation of what your camera would have caught in auto. Also keep in mind, I had a graduated neutral density filter on here so the true original is even better than what an auto-jpeg capture would have looked like. These are all the same photo, just processed slightly differently. (the way instagram does)
|My 'natural style' edit on left, and what your camera probably|
would have shot on auto on the right.
So where is this place? Kingfisher Lake in Banff, and as you can see - shot back in 2011 Never shared before!
The exposure is;
ISO 500 - f/6.3 - 1/20s @ 10mm
I could crop it, but this one shows where the ND filter wasn't completely covering the lens, on the right, from top all the way to bottom. haha. OOPS!
hope you enjoyed the post.
