The post How to Correct White Balance in Photoshop: A Guide appeared first on Digital Photography School. It was authored by John McIntire. When you think of white balance corrections, Photoshop probably isn’t the first program that comes to mind. In most cases, white balance is dealt with early in the workflow. And because the tools in Lightroom and other RAW processing suites do a great job, Photoshop isn’t necessary. That said, there are occasions when you might need to alter your white balance in Photoshop – which is where this article will come in handy. Specifically, I’m going to share four non-destructive methods of correcting the white balance. And by the time you’re done, you’ll be able to adjust white...white balance adjustment example

Back in film days, you loaded up a 24 or 36 exposure film and shot away until it was used up. Frames were precious because when your film was gone, it was all over. Digital removed that barrier, which has just created different problems. So, should you delete photos and, if you do, when should you stop? [ Read More ]Original link(Originally posted by Mike Smith)
We’re all aware that the most opportune times to make nature photos are at sunrise and sunset. If you’re a regular reader of my Tip of the Week, you’ve seen the words, “It’s All About The Light.” I often profess that the “sweet light” of early morning and late evening are superb. Their color and quality are unrivaled. The warm glow, the side light and the vibrant and saturated colors they impart can’t be had at any other time of day nor can they be replicated in Photoshop. Every sunrise and sunset is different. The more often you make images during these magical hours, the sooner you’ll comprehend the above words. There are many ways to exploit the sun’s effect at...

OK, well, one heck of a week last week: I went to Maine on a family vacation (which was awesome), and then when the family headed back home I took off for Oshkosh, Wisconsin to shoot the big air show (biggest in the country), with the crew from ISAP (and I’ve got some really handy aviation photography post-processing stuff to share with you here on the blog). Next, I went to Chicago to shoot architecture with my buddy Paul (some really cool stuff to share from there including a new secret shooting location). But right now it’s 12:48 AM Chicago time, and I’ve still got to download my cards from today and back everything up, and then I’ve got a flight...

Photographers often look for the "epic" shot — the one that will stand out, get thousands of social media likes, and get printed by our clients for wall art. While these photos are important, it's also essential to slow down and look for the other images in the scene that help tell a story and capture the vibe and emotion of the moment. In this video, we'll review a simple storytelling framework called "Wide, Medium, Tight" to help you find these opportunities. [ Read More ]Original link(Originally posted by Pye Jirsa)
