Photography Tips and Techniques
Post-processing Images

http://edu-observatory.org/olli/Photography/Week4.html



  When Ansel Adams exposed a photographic plate or piece of
  film, he thought about the light, perspective, exposure and
  so on. He would often manipulate the development process to
  maximize the dynamic range of his negatives. Printing the
  negative was an exercise in photo-manipulation mostly
  through dodging and burning.
  
 

  It's a whole new world with dSLR and smart phone cameras.
  Image manipulation is part of the electronic processing
  taking place in milliseconds. What we call post-processing
  refers to further changing the image from what the Camera
  creates.

  Post-processing digital images - right or wrong?

    One philosophy often cited is "get the image right" when
    one makes the exposure--post-processing is not necessary.
    That's the perspective your instructor chooses.

    An alternative philosophy--any image can be "improved".
    There are literally hundreds of programs and apps to
    achieve image manipulation. This course refers to some of
    the more professional and well-known software.


  How Post-Processing Helped Me Become a Better Photographer

    Post-processing your digital photos is a controversial
    topic for some. The idea that you change and manipulate a
    photo after it's been taken is seen by some as changing
    reality; creating something that's 'fake'. I disagree
    strongly with that idea for many reasons, but the reason
    I'm going to talk about here is that post-processing made
    me a better photographer. Not just that I think it made my
    photos look better, but actually helped me to become
    better at taking photos.
  
    Understand why it's important to "get it right in camera".

Photo Assignment - Telling a Story "A picture is worth a thousand words." That is the motto of a photojournalist. It is their objective to produce direct, truthful and bold images that tell the stories for those who have no voice or show a different perspective. Capture an image that tells a story--perhaps something in your neighborhood or community. You want the image to hold the viewers attention and have an impact.

Right Image Left Image Right Image Left Image A stereo pair consists of two pictures, one for the left eye and one for the right. Even though the two pictures may look very similar, they're not identical. During viewing, the left eye sees the left image and the right eye the right; then the brain fuses the two so you perceive depth. sam.wormley@gmail.com
