Processed 2 Ways

Two examples of my before and after processing in Lightroom. The first in each row is straight out of the camera and unprocessed; the second black and white, with attention paid to color and detail; and the third is my version of the color image. The last two in each row were originally posted on 9/21/2017.

I create images that I see and not what the camera sees.

    Three completely different moods. It trains the eye, doesn’t it πŸ™‚

      Yes it does. When processing for each I vary the light and color. Thanks for the comment.

    One consideration: even an out-of-the-camera RAW photograph still has to get processed so that all those 1s and 0s that the camera records get turned into an image we can see. We don’t do that initial processing ourselves; an algorithm in the camera provides a default image. I’m almost never satisfied with it, but alter it to make it more to my liking. I’ve noticed that if I look back at the way I processed a given image, I’m often tempted to change it at least a little.That’s sometimes true even with an image for which I chose my settings just a few days earlier. How fickle the senses.

      In class I learned that N in camera jpg is more true to life. A RAW file is not processed by the camera. So if one wants to mimic what is true shoot both and process the RAW to look like the jpg. I prefer to process images the way I imagine them.

    Stunning photos. Really enjoy how you delivered them in different hues of color adding unique look to each.

    Interesting to witness your creative process, Sherry, and your attentiveness to sharing what you see, vs. what the camera sees.

    Your version of the image turned out very well in both instances. Much better than SOOC. You hae a good eye.

      Thank you very much. I enjoy using all the tools Lightroom and Photoshop provide to bring out details and colors that I want.

    Very cool… It is a hard thing for me to do because we process about 75,000 images a year… But I try to do that on the before and after images in the business.

      Thanks. Every shoot I do requires a few hours ins the “dark room”.
