I’m finishing up my spring workshop to Old Car City USA, and we had an amazing time. You really need to spend at least two days here in order to satisfy your photographic appetite. This hood ornament from a 1950’s vintage Cadillac really stood out to me. I applied textures to it to create a more unique final effect. The theme I’m stressing with my clients is that a photograph is something that you make, not just take.
Did you know that with a little tweaking, you can extract tremendous dynamic range from single RAW files in Adobe Lightroom without using HDR? The trick is to take advantage of Lightroom’s Camera Calibration panel. There, you set the initial tone curve of your image (contrast & color). By using a low-contrast tone curve, you can recover more highlight and shadow details than by using sliders alone. If you use Nikon DSLRs, you can choose the “Camera Flat” profile to get more dynamic range. If you don’t have a Nikon camera, you can create your own custom profile with a linear tone curve by using the Adobe DNG Profile Editor. My video above will show you how.
