Voodoo and Wizardry Not Required

Voodoo and Wizardry Not Required
To make an amazing image you need three main components.
1. Good technical skills with your gear
2. Captivating composition
3. Post production edit of the image

Unfortunately no mater how expensive, no camera can capture what the human eye perceives. To get really stunning results with most images, some post production work is required. Luckily this is not all voodoo and wizardry. A few simple tweeks in an editor can turn an ok shot into a stunner.

Here’s a shot I took on the weekend. The first is the original image as it came out of my camera and the second is after a very quick edit (about 30 seconds worth of work) in Lightroom CC.

This Saturday we are conducting a Basic Lightroom CC Editing workshop in Cowes. If you are interesting in really boosting the quality of your shots, this is the workshop for you. Here’s the event link, if you are interested, please let me know so I can cater for the right number of participants. https://www.facebook.com/events/670101183197867/
