Before-After : Norwegian beach

Did you ever happen to tell yourself “I like that photo, really. I loved the place, I like the angle I got to shoot, but… I don’t know, I wish it were more… dramatic”. Well that’s what I thought when developping this photo. I loved to hike on the wonderful beach of Bunes, and I was very proud to have thought of climbing up the stream that flows straight to the sea ; but something was off.

Before-After : Gojira

Metal concert photography requires speed, reaction, preparation, skill, and luck. Sometimes the shot we intended to take is a millisecond away from the shot we actually get. That’s how you get a mic stand in the way !

Remove dust specs

That’s it, have you been wandering in wheat fields during harvest? Or was it hiking on windy cliffs? Or you just use your gear a lot, and it gets inevitably dirty? Anyway you got visible specs of dust on your photos, and here are a few steps to get rid of it.

Enhance a boring sky

An empty or dull sky, whether white or blue, in a large part of an image is a vaste of space in a composition. You can’t necessarily wait on site for clouds to come or go, though ! One of our modern-days solution is to artificially replace parts of the sky.

Simple exposure compositing

Did you know the human eye roughly has a 24-stops dynamic ? Well, that is about 2 times more than the best professional camera.
This explains why you are able to see more of a place where darkness and light combine with the naked eye than when you attempt to photograph it. A camera will require multiple exposures at different exposition parameters to render a highly contrasted scene. This is what HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography is all about.
