I am back and have a new blog

Post  tammylk on Thu Jan 01, 2009 7:57 am

blog link I will have to post some pics again. For now if you want to see some recent stuff it is on my blog I started a few weeks ago.

I have added the sb600 to my collection so I am now learning how to use it. I still love natural light though.

I love your tree!!!!!! So gorgeous! Are your pictures straight out of the camera or do you do some tweaking?

I think I have a too lofty goal - to get awesome pictures straight out of the camera with no need for Photoshop - but I think I need a lot of practice! LOLOLO

what do you do? I usually use Levels and saturation and a teeny bit of unsharp mask if it needs it.

I'm with you Susan. I cannot figure out how to fix my pictures in photoshop without making them look circus-y so what I print/post is always without editing. I am sure more of my pictures would be winners if I could just figure out a few key photoshop steps. Oh well, lofty goals are good goals.

If any of you have DSLR why don't you shoot in RAW format? This allows an immense amount of control and is a lot easier to control tonal values, colors, sharpness without all the steps of Photoshop.

If your concerned about how your image looks (circus-y or otherwise) just ensure you save your edited work as sRGB. This is a universal "language" that is read by printers (except professional, most professional printers use Adobe RGB) and monitors. The only issue you would have to be concerned with at that point is if the viewing persons monitor is out of whack.
My wifes monitor is all crazy, I hate looking at pictures on her monitor. I've tried fixing it and it's just the monitor over saturates everything.
And know when to say enough on the editing.

I have used RAW in the past, but I don't have access to the high powered computer that can run CS 3, Aperture and Adobe Lightroom that manipulates the RAW file. It's too much for my 10 year old 400 mz processor.

I do love shooting in RAW and the corrections you can make in it is amazing. Here's a before/after shot when I used Aperture to save a shot I loved:
