I’ve said before that I am a tweaker. Some take pride, and rightly so, in getting the shot just the way they wanted it without tweaking. I use a point and shoot; I don’t have all the adjustments, lenses, and filters and experience necessary to get the shot the way I might envision it. So I tweak.
I think of every photo as a canvas on which to create the most interesting result I can. And I am testing out some new-to-me software on a 30-day free trial – Sagelight. I ever so quickly checked out Lightroom and, like other Adobe Photoshop software,I ever so quickly found out it is beyond my understanding. But I’m lovin’ this Sagelight. So many things to try. So many variations. So many combinations. And infinite possibilities.
colour adjust –
black and white –
high pass filter –
High pass filter grey scale –
Then there’s the depth of field, bokeh, light controls and tone blenders – all easy to use with infinite control. Dozens of HDR effects. Dodge and burn. Plug-in filters. Yup, I’m lovin’ this software.
