This is a follow-up of my previous lessons, incorporating techniques with selective adjustments for a realistic result, to internalise what you have learned so far.
Below you can see a comparison of different processing which I explain in detail in the video. The plant is not lit by direct sunlight, which means we should be a bit careful not to pretend a fake illumination. You might get more clicks on 500px or flickr if you boost your pictures to infinity, but is that what you really want? You decide…
In this 5:39 min long video I’ll show you one way to give plants a little more oomph, without going overboard. This is important for those who want to submit pictures to National Geographic for example. You should hold back and not exceed “Maximum Natural”.
