Every now and then I come across a website that is surprisingly good. Or one that appeals to my warped sense of humour.
At the last SIG, workflow got a mention. The Cambridge in Colour website (mentioned above) lists these as the steps for a photographer’s workflow:
- White Balance – temperature and tint adjustment sliders
- Exposure – exposure compensation, highlight/shadow recovery
- Noise Reduction – during RAW development or using external software
- Lens Corrections – distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations
- Detail – capture sharpening and local contrast enhancement
- Contrast – black point, levels and curves tools
- Framing – straighten and crop
- Refinements – color adjustments and selective enhancements
- Resizing – enlarge for a print or downsize for the web or email
- Output Sharpening – customized for your subject matter and print/screen size
So much concise advice in so few words. It brings everything together that have covered in the last we few months.
Click on the different links, go to the website, scan for anything of interest to you, and then try it out with some of your own photos.
