  • Processing of Photographs



    Check out our 10/10/2018 Blog titled “Processing of Photographs” http://cwrailman.com/blog/processing-of-photographs

    to see how we used a photo shot under less than ideal conditions to create this image.

    Denny,

    Nice job! The only thing I might change is that the sky looks a Little overprocessed - unless you have a sunlit subject against a looming thunderstorm the sky should be brighter than the foreground.. In CameraRAW I would adjust Shadows and Highlights until there is detail in both, and then tweak midtones with the Exposure slider, and a little Clarity for local contrast. For some reason I find it hard to do local adjustments that still look natural, so I avoid them..

      I agree with what you say about the sky however in the processing of this image I was going for a Howard Fogg type representation which in many of his paintings had a darkened sky and lightened shadows. This image has now been printed for a customer on canvas and it does look like one of Howard Foggs paintings.

          Denny,

          To my eye, you succeeded in what you set out to do. It’s very good, having both the accuracy and detail of a photo and the drama of a painting.

            I hate retouching by myself, but I make a lot of photoes for sale, so I have to. That's why I often use web services
