Picture #191 -Painted Sunrise
Just a photo I revisited after hearing the seminar and trying a few things... I never take what others say even if it is at a seminar as gospel... It may be something that worked for them but I still use my own head and try different things.
clarity- adds shadow to dark areas, vibrance- is far better than using saturation because it makes all the colors brighter and he stated rarely do you need all of them brighter. Vibrance adds a color punch to in areas where there is less saturation. 1) It makes any color that is dull more bright, 2) it does very little to the colors that are already bright, 3) it does it's best to avoid skin tones altogether... so is much more controllable than saturation is.... well, that's what the speaker said but each to their own I say you know best what works for you..
this is an old photo from 9/09 that I had never processed because of the difficult lighting but was much easier trying some of the new techs.. have a great day.. I get to babysit Chloe again Mon... :-) connie
