Here’s a little photo tip for you guys. I’ve just recently started posting different tips that I feel people can gain some value from, so please, leave a comment with your thoughts. I would love to hear from you!
Almost all photos need some type of post processing after they come out of the camera. I’m not talking about major changes to your pictures but often, just simply increasing or decreasing the exposure, the contrast, maybe even a slight crop to eliminate an unwanted object in the corner or on the edge of the photo.
Even in the “old” darkroom days, the most famous photographers would use manual techniques to lighten or darken parts of the picture. This was called “dodge and burn” I won’t explain the technique except to say that it’s a lot easier today with the use of photo enhancing software that most of us already have on our computers.
The camera does not always capture the feeling we are having when we see and take the picture. You can get closer to what you want to show with minor tweaks…don’t be afraid to use today’s technology to turn an almost great shot into a truly good one
