Used to do a lot of film photography, then life got busy and digital sort of passed me by. I did buy a 350D back in the day that I had till a few years ago and when I got some decent money I bought a 6D. GAS hit me but I never got digital photo processing/editing. I am good with computers but I let the likes of Photoshop pass me by.
I have now made it a resolution to learn properly, would like to do a course but my working away all the time doesn't help so I have delved into using books and online tutorials and just now bit the bullet to edit a RAW file in Adobe Camera raw to tweak an underexposed image.
I have a before and after, any general comments? I think the clouds are still a bit washed out but is was one of those cloudy/showery days in October in Scotland and I think the watery sun caused the underexposure in the image. I guess for many photographers the pp on images would be relatively minor, just like what I have done with exposure,contrast, saturation etc in RAW just to provide a quick tweak/fix? I am using Adobe on my laptop with an uncalibrated screen (I know!) but for now I am just getting to grips with using Photoshop & RAW!
First image is the original and the second is the tweaked image (both RAW images output to jpeg).
