|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Hi Folks , today I have this rather straight forward shot of an Aster covered in morning dew. it is one of few shot this summer that I decided to head out with my 2x tele converter on my macro lens , nothing that comes in particularly useful for a flower shot ;-)|
the only significant pp on this image was in adobe raw conversion , and really just a slight one in there mostly just added noise removal. I think the most notable thing in the image aside from the flower , is the fact of how easily I was able to shoot a 1600 iso shot with the Nikon D-300 , it makes shooting with that camera quite a treat being able to use an f 32 aperture and still get a 1/500 shutter on natural light.
it took me a while to get a better hang of handling noise during the raw conversion , but I think I have gotten a bit better at it in the past year , some of the setting I use are , to reduce clarity a bit , reduce sharpness a bit , sometimes reduce detail a bit , and of coarse increasing luma and color denoising as well.
I used to think that i could increase denoising then recover sharpness at the same time , but after a lot of trial and error (aka grainy results) I discovered that I was really better off sacrificing some sharp in the conversion , and recovering it in the PP with a bit of unsharp mask
many times when I attempt a high ISO shot I will give a +1/3 compensation to exposure , I think that is the biggest part , to get a good exposure in the first place that does not need lighting / color adjustment in pp especially trying to brighten the image....
thanks for stopping in
