So in an attempt to better my skills and put out better quality products I’ve been watching some video’s on how professionals approach their photos when it comes to editing them. The more I watch these videos, the more I realize, I don’t know a thing. Most of my photos go through a simple process where I use snapseed to bring out the shadows and highlights to create a little more dramatic look. Then I run it through photoshop elements to sharpen up the lines in the photo using a high pass filter. I believe a lot of those photo’s I’ve been putting out recently look very nice and some may even be worthy of a frame. However I had no idea photoshop could be used in the ways seen in the video. A car parked in an old warehouse with little to no lighting is suddenly (though the art of time lapse) turned into an incredibly dramatic and magazine worthy shot. I always assumed these professionals had access to the best and most creative locations, and were able to wait until those perfect moments (like sunlight shining through an open panel in a warehouse). It has become apparent that I will need to fully immerse myself in the ways of using photoshop to put out a more polished and professional product. It has also become apparent that it is not impossible to become a professional at this. It can be learned over time. I would love some feedback on a good place to start learning about all that program has to offer.
