Tip of the Day – Hidden twilight tones
Twilight shots can look fairly dull in a raw file, lacking the colour and vibrance you experience in person. Those beautiful pink and purple pastel tones are all there hidden in the RAW file data though, it’s just a matter of finding them and pulling them out!
This is my favourite shot from Rogue’s session and in Episode 1 of RealShoots you’ll find a full edit of this image, using Lightroom and then Photoshop to bring it back to it’s full potential.
Newsflash! In March 2018, I entered this image in the AIPP Epson Queensland Professional Photography Awards where it scored a Silver Award! This image, along with the three other entries in the Pet/Animal category, resulted in me being awarded the 2018 AIPP Queensland Epson Pet/Animal Photographer of the Year.
I was so excited to see one (actually, two!) of my RealShoots images do so well – and best of all – you can watch the exact moment I captured this image as it unfolded – it’s all on camera in Episode 1 of RealShoots!
Canon EOS 1D X, Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II @ 155mm, ISO 1000, 1/1000 sec, f/2.8
Here’s the before and after (remember, you can watch the complete, start to finish editing process for this award-winning image in Episode 1).
