EDIT FOR COMPOSITION CHOICE
Identify when and how to adjust your editing workflow based on your approach to in-camera composition
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.
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.
