Cam­era Raw essen­tials

NPhoto - - Feature -

Shoot­ing your land­scapes in Raw mode gives you a fully un­com­pressed file or ‘dig­i­tal neg­a­tive’ to work with when it comes to the edit­ing stage, and any changes you make can be tweaked again later. Pho­to­shop’s Adobe Cam­era Raw plug-in is a good place to start…

FIRST TWEAKS

Open the im­age up in Adobe Cam­era Raw and be­gin with gen­eral changes. To start with, we bright­ened up the ex­po­sure and shad­ows.

BOOST THE SKY

Make use of gra­di­ent fil­ters to boost se­lected por­tions of the im­age. Here, a fil­ter was dragged across the sky to add sat­u­ra­tion.

TONE CURVES

Use a Tone Curve and add points for a more tar­geted edit. We light­ened the high­lights and shad­ows again slightly to liven up our im­age.
