Brief One – Fly on The Wall

BRIEF 1: Portraiture – Taking – Fly On The Wall

Photo editing process:

For the majority of my image, the process of which I used to edit my images was the same and began by me changing the RAW colour images I shot into Black and White. Once I had done this and changed the colour balences to the levels I felt would compliment my images the most, I further continued to play around with the Exposure tool. Here I substantially increased the Offset and Gamma Correction as to add a softness and slight misty feeling to my images, onece I had done this i then increased the exposure to allow more light to flood into the images. Once I had done this I then decided to use the Brightness tool, increasing the Contrast within the images substantially, to enable me to give a depth to the blackness and shadows and shades of the images, I then increased the brightness marginally to ensure that the detail was still caught within the images. I then proceeded to use the Burn tool within some of the images to darken areas of which i felt I neede to add depth, and used the Dodge tool of darkened areas within which need lighter tones added.

The only real differences between the editing processes of the main/long exposure portraits, and the close ups, were the ways in which i decided to incorperate the Blur tool into the process. Here I would use the Blur tool to create a less focused background, ensuring the main focus would be the subject in the portrait. Other than that there were no real differences in editing processes.
