Lesson 1

Quick Edit


Artifact on display at the Milwaukee Art Museum.   White interior made it most difficult to photograph.


Quick Fix. Smart fix: Auto, Balance: Temperature: +56, Tint: +10

Shadows & Highlights


Original, Antelope Canyon, Arizona


Adjust Lighting — Shadows: 51%, Highlights: 51%, Contrast: 43%

Corrections by Blending


Original became underexposed by the brightness of the brass.


Background duplicated to a new layer and Blending Mode of Screen applied.   Opacity of 75% returned the most pleasing balance with the sky.


Sorta bland, soooo blend to fix the bland!


Better, added layer set blending to Screen at 42% opacity followed by another layer with blending set to Linear Light, opacity 100%.
