how to make your photo shine… post processing experiment – email your RAW or jpg file to [email protected] and upon selection I will post a video tutorial on my blog. I’ll process your image in Lightroom or Photoshop (your choice, make a note in your email) and I’ll explain in a video response what I’m doing to improve your photos looks, and why I’m doing it. let the games begin – this shall be fun!
just a few things for clarification in general:
editing: to “edit” photos in the the old days would just be to make a selection of frames from the negatives or contact sheets to get physically “printed” and improved in the darkroom
printing: in the darkroom days, one would take the negative into the darkroom for “printing” and improve its looks by selection of paper and by “dodging and burning”
neither term is accurate anymore and especially editing has taken on a double meaning, as in “selection process”, or as in “post processing”. in my video I refer to it as “post processing” the task that one achieves by using tools like Photoshop or Lightroom to improve the look of one’s photo.
wedding photographers refer to the editing/selection process as “culling” and everything else after as “post processing”… I think that’s an accurate choice and it may take some time for me to get used to…
“printing” now simply refers to sending the bits and bytes to a printer, on-site, or off-site.
