PEOPLE ON STEPS
Best left alone? Continuing the conversation about editing and post production.
This photo was technically sound straight out of the #fujixt2 camera, but with this sort of scale, subject and composition, with lots of foliage limited contrasting areas and flat natural light - the whole photo ends up competing for your attention - so you have no specific point to focus attention and gets quite messy to look at.
The scale was interesting with the steps winding through the centre with people pausing to take photos - so with #lightroom and #affinityphoto on the #iPadpro in 2 mins I’d used the lighting tool on affinity and selective editing back in lightroom - to pull back from the general distractions and bring the focus to the important stuff like the people on the stairs and the water pool.
Definitely in this case the photo is not best left alone.
I find it interesting that people have an issue with post production.....I get it for studio stuff (to some degree) as you can control the lighting and placement of people and objects before you take the photo, so post production if used can be minimal, but with the natural environment on this scale its not really within our gift to provide variables apart from the usual exposure, shutter, the focal point etc - so the drama you feel when you are there looking and feeling the place and the focus holding your attention, isn’t always reflected by the resulting photo and sometimes you have to put it in. That’s fine with me.
I think; when to do it, and how far to push the post production, is the important thing to judge.
The reality is that this photo would never have been shared if it wasn’t for post production.
I’d love your thoughts on this subject. Let me know in the comments and what you think of the photo itself.
So 3 years of University has come to an end. Today I graduated with a 1st Class Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Graphic Arts, It’s been tuff, but I finally made it. I can honestly say it has been the best 3 years of my life. Oh yeah and we got to keep are mortarboards aswell. 🎓 #uclangraduates@hbucgraphicarts

Today has been a chilled one. I woke up this morning and started studying but just didn’t feel like it at all so instead decided to bake some cakes before getting back to it! I think sometimes forcing yourself to study when you don’t feel it is worse then doing nothing at all. What do you do to chill out?

오늘에야 어마어마한 기능을 알았다!!!!!!.
구문분석&독해하다가 모르는 문법이 나오면 문법 설명해주는 해쉬태그를 클릭하고 #설명보기 를 누르면 관련해서 자세한 설명이랑 문제가 나온다!!!!! 심지어 친절하게 강의까지 링크되어 따로 문법 설명이 있음. 이 기능은 진짜 문법 어려워하시는 분들한테 찰떡같이 잘 맞을 것 같다 어쩜 이렇게 친절하징 여태 나 왜 몰랐을까 ⍨⃝︎ 10강 더 남았는데 잘 활용해봐야겠다.
