What is SoFoBoMo? Solo Photo Book Month! The idea is to take 35 photographs and make a PDF photo book, all within 31 days. You choose the 31 days any time between July 1 and August 31. Once done, upload the PDF for others to enjoy.Read More
The Second Quarter Competition presentation is this month, so I thought it might be interesting to see a before-and-after of some of my previous entries. I enjoy processing almost as much as I do taking the photos, which is a good thing since all these photos needed help.
All were shot in RAW, hand-held with no flash. I don’t remember the steps taken during processing, but I used Lightroom, Photoshop, and Nik HDR Efex Pro. I usually shoot in either manual mode or aperture priority, at the lowest ISO possible. Unless I forget to check the settings, which is why the state fair shot had an ISO of 400 in bright daylight. At least I remembered to take the lens cap off!
