two dunes...

Postby quester » Sun Nov 01, 2015 8:31 pm

...from a hike on Saturday. I had a busy time experimenting with different settings, trying to get something I liked. For some reason I am not getting the "pop" I see in GR photos posted by others - I don't know if this is because I don't do much PP, or something else. Also, the camera's screen was pretty useless on many shots - I think that I will try using the optical viewfinder next time, even though it adds bulk and will just help me in framing. The camera froze on me twice - both times after moving the focus point to the lower left side, for some reason. Had to wait for the camera to turn off automatically. The end is near, already?

Hoping to develop a more consistent routine and to get to know the camera better.

Pop. I always bump up the contrast . Even at the expense of loosing detail in the shadows.

I agree about contrast. Another important tool for pop in LR is.... Clarity.
If you use LR, send me a note and I'll send you some presets.

Thanks for looking and the comments, Ripbab and Don. I don't use any software other than the Raw developer supplied with the camera. I've never felt inclined to, as I usually just treat photography as a way to record what I see in an interesting way. So I'm one of those who are not looking for a specific "look", but just a memento - and as such, the GR does the work well. I guess that the photos I see that have a lot of vibrancy/clarity, are just PP'd a bit more than what I have allowed myself up to now. I usually treat PP as a way to correct mistakes done while shooting.
But - I can understand the appeal in serious PP, and I just might try to step up a bit in the future.
