DIGITAL DARKROOM

Homework Week 3

 

This lesson was most interesting as until now I used  ACR mainly in "Basic" tab to recover highlights, correct  exposure, adjust contrast, fill light, and used clarity & vibrance sliders.

I had not ventured to using other tabs which now I know are very useful.

Now that I have learnt "properly" I feel confident in using these tabs. I have posted your exercise photos & some of my photos (before & after shots)

VIGNETTING

 

Vignetting is something I first encountered when I was in Scotland with Jim,  photographing  loch Pitlochry, I was using full frame Canon 5D with 17-40mm wide angle lens & Lee ND filters. Lot of my photos taken at wide angle showed vignetting.  It took Mark Cargill who is a professional photographer, a while to "diagnose" the cause, that I had "wrong" ring adaptor for my Lee filter. For wide angle lenses I should have been using Wide Angle ring adaptor. instead I was using standard adaptor. Results are posted below.

Vignetting Corrected

 

Here I have deliberately used vignetting on this photo taken in Venice and hopefully converted it to artistic effect.
