The following three images have had tonal and colour contrast added to make them stand out a little more using Lightroom first then Photoshop and Photoshop Plug-ins from Tony Kuyper (the new TK9) and Blake Rudis.
The Cromer Cliff image was taken using my iPhone 14 and the others using my Canons MK5 II and MK5 IV.
Although the effects can be done using Photoshop on its own the Plug-ins do make it a lot easier. Often in less layers.
A short video taken with my phone on our walk from Old Hartley Caravan Site to St Mary’s Lighthouse. The tide was out so we were able to have a look round and in the lighthouse and Island. It was nice to see the Seals hauled up on the island having a sunbath.
Over the last 14 months, I have not added many new images to my collection, so I have been revisiting some from years past. I have been looking mainly at landscape rather than wildlife. A landscape does not run away!
This started from spending time revisiting and improving Photoshop skills and knowledge using YouTube and other sources, often revisiting some instructors I have been following for years. I have also spent a good amount of time improving my Final Cut Pro skills but have, as of now I have few past videos to develop.
The following images have been edited in Photoshop using Tony Kuyper’s Luminosity Masks, f64 Zone System, Selective Colour adjustment layer, and other Photoshop techniques.
If you want to see the YouTube subscriptions I use, then search for PiXimperfect, Photoshop Training Channel (PTC), photoshop CAFÉ, f64 Academy, Max Kloskowski, The Joy of Editing with Dave Kelly. These are the main places I visit regularly for reviewing and learning Photoshop and Lightroom skills used with my wildlife and landscape.
