Re: [The-Complete-Photographer] Exposure challenges for brilliant, red objects . . . is it over saturated or merely over exposed

Good question.

Absolutely.  This isn't a how-to session.  I am using the software to illustrate what is going on with these images.  We know some of these pictures look like blobs of plastic.  What we are trying to understand why that happens and what we can do to work around it.  

As such, this is not camera specific or software specific.  We are using the software to put pictures on a screen.  It just happens to be the software I use. Hopefully the images will tell the story.

Thanks . . . Guy

I use Capture NX2.  Would I be able to learn stuff here?  This sounds great !!!!!

Photographing red objects can be a challenge.  Red objects such as red flowers, red birds, the Chinese Lantern Festival, and the Chihuly art pose challenges for our super sophisticated cameras.


Our meeting next Tuesday is "Reflections".  However, in light of questions about capturing good images of red objects, I have prepared a fifteen minute presentation illustrating what the problem is and how we need to correct it.  Canon Digital Photo Professional, Lightroom, and Photoshop will be used to illustrate example images.

Also, for those still shooting jpg, there will be a strong demonstration of why raw images may be a better solution.

So upload some images to our "Reflections 11-12" gallery and come to the meeting next Tuesday!



Thanks . . . Guy
