Just kind of curious. How many have to post process your DIGITAL images after a shoot. I personally almost always have to do something to every image that I think is a "keeper" whether it be adjusting brightness/contrast or saturation levels etc. Always a little something that I have to tweak. Is this normal, do the rest of you that shoot digital experience this as well?

Thanks,
Brent

Why of course you should always have "post production" on anything, even if it's to editing of your images.....I however use my Snapshots Technique to clean my images in post processing (production) in two minutes or less...you can find more in the "Pit Stop" link of GG at the top of this forum...thanks, rg sends!

Are you shooting in Raw?? If so do you have Adobe Raw plugin..It makes post work a lot easier because you are loading a tweaked image to strart with...later, Hugh

Heh, 100% of my keepers will have something done to them. I have my E10 set to shoot a little soft so at the least I'll have to do a little sharpening in PS. From there it depends on what I want from the photo. Sometimes sharpening is all it gets, sometimes there's a little colour/contrast balancing. I may have to dodge/burn an area to get the exposure balanced. Then there are the photos that just scream for a little glamour blur, or diffusion glow, or conversion to B&W or maybe there's a blemish on the model that no amount of makeup is going to cover. Then it's healing brush to the rescue.

I'll do what ever it takes to make the image exactly what I want. I'm not doing documentary shooting here.

don't mean to sound ignorant, but why would you set the camera to shoot soft, just to end up sharpening it up in PS?

i shoot film, btw

If nothing else, I find that anything digitized, whether it is scanned or digital capture, requires sharpening.

Haven't had time to explore raw capture files yet, so don't know about that at this point. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Usually the software in the camera ends up making the image too sharp and you end up with square circles, funny artifacts, and aliesed(sp?) diagonal lines.

You have much more control over the sharpening effects in Photoshop, so it's worth it to shoot soft then sharpen in PS.

I shoot digital pretty much exclusivly, and this is one of the things that drives me nuts about it.

Actually that and the noise. It's just not the same as film grain. No matter how little the noise is in a digital photo I find it a thousand times more annoying than the grain in film. It's just too regular and our eyes/brains are far too good at catching and seeing patterns.

So while digital gives me much more control of an image, and I love what I can do with it, I find it still has some pretty big drawbacks. (Your milage may very.)

Actually, talking to the folks at one of the camera shops in town here, they're seeing used medium format cameras starting to really flood the market 'cause so many pros are moving to digital. Which is great for me 'cause I'm starting to look at adding a good 645 or 6x6 to my camera collection so that I can get into some serious light painting. Again, something that, while it can be faked with digital, just doesn't look right comparied to shooting/painting on film.

Quick question - why convert it to B & W instead of just use the B & W mode on the camera?

I had heard/read that you get a noticeably better B&W if you use the B&W setting on the camera rather than covert aftewards - is this true?

Well, the Olympus E10 and Canon 10D don't have black and white modes, and for the one camera I used that did, the Minolta DiMage (sp?) I was pretty dissapointed in the results.
You have far greater control in PS than you ever will on camera.

At least in my humble opinion.
