It’s in the po st de­tails

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

With dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy, it’s as im­por­tant to be adept be­hind the com­puter as it is be­hind the cam­era. As long you can cap­ture as much in­for­ma­tion as pos­si­ble in the field, then you should be able to bring it out in post-pro­cess­ing. Con­trol­ling high­lights is an area that ev­ery pho­tog­ra­pher needs to be pro­fi­cient with, and there are many ways to achieve this. I find the eas­i­est way is to move the High­lights slider in Light­room to the left to re­cover any blown high­lights.

I of­ten use the ‘de­tail ex­trac­tor’ in Nik Color Efex Pro 4.0 (www.google.com/ nikcol­lec­tion) to bring out de­tail in clouds. You have con­trol over the amount of de­tail you want to show, but be care­ful not to overdo this, as it can look a lit­tle un­real.
