Even after the bounce flash lit the shad­ows in the kitchen, the ta­ble was still too dark. “The stain on the ta­ble was even darker than on the benches, so we were never go­ing to bal­ance this in-cam­era,” ex­plains Pete. He showed Tony how to use a soft ad­just­ment brush in Light­room to lighten up the ta­ble slightly. This helped to lift the ta­ble out of the dark­ness and re­veal the detail in the wood. “Ad­just­ments like this can in­tro­duce noise if you go too far,” adds Pete, “but the D800E han­dles this sort of ex­po­sure boost well.”
