It is likely that your camera is capturing more information than you can easily see. Finding and bringing out this information is a great way to bring your image to life and add a lot of Depth.
In today’s episode we start off with an image that has been resized for the Web and saved as a .jpg. It is a very small and compressed image yet we are still able to bring out a ton of detail.
If we can bring this much detail from a 74kb Jpeg, imagine what you can do with a RAW file!
Here are some of the Tools we use:
- Apply Image – The key to Exposure blending in Photoshop. Apply Image will allow you to target the Highlights or the Shadows of an image
- Curves – One of the most powerful Tools in Photoshop, Curves is your best friend in bringing out detail in Exposure.
