Neodigital Art | Editing for effect
You can use any program you want to edit your photographs. Georgia is 15 years old and still at school, she used CorelDraw to edit this photograph. The caption she gave it was ‘ Brighter on the other side of the darkness’. She has made underneath the bridge a little darker and then it looks quite bright on the other side. Georgia goes horse riding close to the bridle way. The darkness spooks the horses.
This is the photograph after I edited a little, mainly to improve the contrast. I read some reviews on cameras like mine and they weren’t very good. Some people expect to buy a camera and take a few shots and get pictures as good as these. You have to pick a good subject and try to get some depth to the shot and then simple editing will improve it. Just importing a picture into Windows Live Gallery and clicking auto adjust will improve it a lot.
This shot isn’t very exciting, but it does have some depth provided by the path. Look for anything that will give your shot depth, something going away from you, will do it, as will something prominent in the foreground. Also look for patterns, in this shot we have the patterns on the benches and on the paving. The photo was edited to highlight the patterns.
For the benefit of locals, these pictures were taken in Sandwell Valley, this path is into Priory Woods. The path and the fences give the picture depth, but it also looks intriguing. Where does the path go?
The editing made this photograph of a demolition site interesting, because it brought out the sunset quite well. The sunset isn’t the usual red sky sunset, but lots of different colours and shades.
This photo was taken last Autumn in bright sunlight. I used the tree in the foreground for depth and the different colours, light and shadows make it interesting.
The editing makes a difference, but the light, time of year and how you take the shot all contribute to a good shot.
