Can a very little point change the meaning of a picture? But, in the world of photoshop, did I add the little black point or did I remove it? 🙂 🙂
Answers: yes it can! Of course I added the little point. It was a “poor” photo but I noticed that the child was looking at the ground…so I thought to add a little black point to give a reason of curiosity 🙂 Now I have a more interesting picture…but did I do well? Did I do the right thing or I should have left it without retouching?
A little optimization of the Classic Chrome preset of Lightroom: just a little change on Clarity, Saturation and Tone Curve. At the end of the post the link to download the template. To install in Lightroom: right-click (win) or ctrl-click (Imac) on user presets and then choose import.
One of the way to learn how to take a good shot is the following: look for a very bad, ugly, nasty, unsightly, foul, unpleasant place ( in your home too , or in another place ) and try to make it beautiful🙂 In every place there is a hidden nice, lovely, little side…it’s a very good exercise of composition to find it.
I found in my garden some flowers…Ok, they are not very unpleasant..but I think that they are quite meaningless. So I tried to “transform” the picture in a “pictorial” photo, in a “sort of” painting.
More contrast, more light and a lot of color saturation ( and a little crop )…Now they are very beautiful flowers 🙂
The criminal always returns to the scene of the crime…and I return a lot of time in the same place..but in different season, in different time… The place is always different…as the editing is different. OK, I love this place: the Walls of the city of Lucca ( Italy).
