I frequently see images where contrast, detail and clarity are applied image-wide and negatively impact soft elements, out of focus details and portrait subjects. In this video I’ll showcase how to use the non-destructive tools in Photo RAW to avoid doing this in your edits and to correct previously edited images.
Using the Develop module, I’ll teach you my steps to fixing the brightness and contrast on landscape photos. I love to spend time in Local Adjustments and mask in brightness or contrast in certain areas. Follow along with me in this video and I’ll teach you another hot tip for making color pop – with a new feature in ON1 Photo RAW 2018!
This is a new take I’ve had on portraits recently and I wanted to share my workflow in ON1 Photo RAW 2017 for how to achieve the same look! I’ve just started incorporating this technique into my style lately and the results have been quite stellar in my opinion. I’ll teach you how I use Dynamic Contrast in ON1 Photo RAW 2017 to blend two images together to create a similar look like this.
A while back, I did a post on using the ON1 Effects Dynamic Contrast filter and some of the negative things that come along with it (and how to remove them). Well, in last week’s photo critique on of the images that came up had some extra contrast added in the background and I offered the photographer (Mark Coons) some advice on removing it (even though Mark didn’t really need to because the image was selling already) :-)
