Frustrated that when you go out to photograph a person, you are not really sure what to do?
Wondering how to manage your files and what program to use?
Those exact questions will be answered for you at this coming Saturday’s Conquering the Camera session.
Image #1 – A straight, head and shoulders portrait of lovely Trish. We have soft light on her face, but the camera angle is not flattering. The file has had no post production work done to it.
Image #2 – Some of Trish’s best features are accentuated and the file has been completely finished in Adobe Lightroom.
I’ve trialled and tested many options, and can now fast track you to managing your workflow based on my experiences. We’ll cut to the chase, just your questions and my practical insights from years of working as a professional photographer. It’s participative, and FUN…and it’s my mission that you’ll leave feeling more confident in navigating your way around your pictures.
Handy Hint 1: When photographing a person, identify their strong features and their weak features, as this will then help you decide on what you leave in and what you leave out of the picture.
Handy Hint 2: set your camera to RAW setting, not jpeg. Why? RAW is uncompressed, has all that yummy data ready for processing exactly the way you want, and you can then export the file however you wish: jpeg, TIFF, you name it…with much more control over size output. Jpeg files have already been processed in-camera (they’re sharpened, more contrasty, and print ready) and are spat out as lossy, compressed files. By ‘lossy’ I mean that any additional post production work applied to the image will then result in a further loss of data, which starts to harm your image quality.
