Quantum Facetime, Minneapolis, Minnesota
haha -- ok, i lied. :P i said a few weeks ago that i would post twice a week and yet i have only been posting shots once a week! LOL.
well truthfully this once a week deal is actually working out perfectly for me -- now i have all the time to do what it is that i do here in NYC and still take part in this beautiful community here at Am3!!! :)
also -- are any of you registered at onexposure.com? if so, let's hook up!! i just opened an account a month ago, but haven't really got around to setting it up yet... i am in the process of psyching myself up to submit a photo or two! wish me luck!! and if you haven't joined, check out the site and see if you want to! the work on there is simply mind blowing! have a look!
**regarding work flow in PS: i upload the raw / jpg file through adobe camera raw, adjusting exposure, temperature and tints, highlights, shadows, contrast and clarity and finally saturation before opening into PS workspace.
from there i usually sharpen the photo in LAB, and then set about doing color correction and general 'blemish' healing before moving onto further contrast / brightness modification and working with levels. finally i will work with hue / saturation and color balance and then process the shot for any remaining noise.
sometimes i may choose to do additional sharpening at the end... but recently i have not. i am learning that the more you work with different 'schemes', and work flow orders, the more you will come up with a process entirely your own -- which will yield entirely different styles!
pretty darn cool!
cheers to you all! :)
