EDIT FOR COM­PO­SI­TION CHOICE

Iden­tify when and how to ad­just your edit­ing work­flow based on your ap­proach to in-cam­era com­po­si­tion

Digital Photograper - - Develop Your Editing Style -

how you choose to ar­range the el­e­ments of your frame di­rectly in­flu­ences how the out-of-cam­era file ap­pears. your se­lec­tion of an­gle, per­spec­tive and fo­cal length must all be taken into ac­count when start­ing to build a re­peat­able se­quence of soft­ware ad­just­ments.

VIS­I­BLE LIGHT SOURCE

if you’d like to shoot to­wards the light and in­cor­po­rate it within the frame, choose to ei­ther re­cover high­light de­tail, or fol­low the in­verse pro­ce­dure and bleach in­for­ma­tion from the ex­tremes of the tonal range. This will en­sure an in­ten­tional ap­pear­ance and cre­ate a sat­is­fy­ing ex­po­sure bal­ance.

PO­SI­TION OF SUB­JECT

With hu­man vi­sion, there is a bias of at­ten­tion to­wards the cen­tre of our field of view. con­sider how re­al­is­tic you want your im­ages to be and de­cide on how much en­hance­ment the pe­riph­ery of your shot re­quires.

STRONG COLOURS

When shoot­ing brightly coloured ob­jects, ex­per­i­ment with match­ing other com­po­si­tion el­e­ments. choose to equal the sat­u­ra­tion for an even colour theme, or de­r­ate other ar­eas for stronger con­trasts and tighter fo­cus on key zones of the scene.
