Following on from the previous video http://gavtrain.blogspot.com/2009/08/15-minute-photo-challange-balcome.html I had a large number of emails asking did the final photos have any post processing and if so what did I do.
Firstly ALL the images in the video had some photoshop applied, but to be honest every picture I take has a touch of photoshop applied. I'm not alone here. I know of Very few photographers who press the shutter and print the results. Cropping, Levels and sharpening are all par for the course.
In this case the work was limited to a few tweaks in Adobe Camera RAW and the total time to work through all the images was around 30 minutes.
So what's my secret? The answer is RAW Presets. As you'll see towards the end of the video. If I find a good RAW technique I'll turn it into a preset. That way I can process and image in click of a button.
If you've never used RAW before (and if you camera has it) may be this video will convince you to see the light.
