Howdy! I'm new to this site, and new to Digital Photography! I did 35mm B&W back in the day, and recently bought a Canon T2i! I'm using my 9 month old, Caden, as my subject! He's great in front of the camera! Here are a few of my first shots with him.... Can you give me some suggestions? These have not gone through PP. I'm in the market for a program, and not sure what to get. I like an organic feel to my shots, so I wouldn't want to go nutso in PP.
I'm currently using AV mode right now..... It'll be a while before I feel comfortable with M....
Ahhaa ! What a cute little man you get to photograph !!!
That last one is just so cute ! Love it !
I am using photo shop CS4, I have just upgraded to CS5 - Though it's still waiting to be installed onto my computer - I must do that soon.
If you can get hold of CS3, CS4 or CS5 - you will be very happy
You can do very basic editing in photo shop, to keep a natural feel to your photos.
I have done a very quick edit for you, just to show what a few simple adjustments can do to enhance a photo
I did a curves adjustment to lighten the photo & I took some yellow out. I used a levels layer to add some blacks & and a brightness/contrast adjustment too.
wow! your edits always look absolutely GREAT! THANK YOU for taking all your time to teach us all some great stuff, I would love to know how you desaturated the photo, just whenever you get a chance
you are so good at this, you need to do some workshops!
I usually do my de saturating ACR with a RAW file, but this time I did the following :
Layer - new adjustment layer - black and white
Play round with the sliders and adjust to taste then click layer - flatten image.
Have a play and see how you go
