photoblog image


Up until now I've been using Phase One's Capture One Pro to process my RAW files and then exporting them to Adobe Photoshop CS4 for the final post production. So I'll normally create a colour image in C1 Pro and then do a black and white conversion with some extra grain and contrast work there too.

Now this doesn't work very well when ever I have jobs with loads and loads of photographs to process, therefore I'm not able to process my commercial work to the same level or degree as those seen on my photo blog.Over the years I've been trying to work out faster methods of doing this until I discovered a few tips and tricks in Adobe Lightroom 3 that allows you to do these things. Take for example this image above, I've done the dodging and burning, and added grain in LR3. Of course you can do the latter in C1Pro however the dodging/burning is an essential part of my black and white photographic style and this is badly missed in my commercial work.

I just thought I'd share something different with you today
