We’ll we finished all the shooting for this DVD, this educational lighting DVD and I open all of my row Nikon net files and capture in X. This is Nikon full editing software, which is brilliant editing software as well as the best way to basically process a Nikon row file. It’s the only software that actually gives you all the information that the camera places inside the file from camera information to setting up of tone and color sharpness.
All the information that you place into the camera when you pull that exposure is in capturing next, so that when I opened my row files and I go through my browser and I pick up my selected images that I’m going to process, all of its there. All the information is there exactly as I shot it. As you can see it, a quick glance I don’t need to do much in terms of correction so before I go to Photoshop we’re I’ll do some work with Nix software, this color effects Pro 3.0. I’ll show you some quick tips and techniques on there, how I finalized and sort of polished it all of this pictures.
But I do a quick open in here, look at everything make sure everything looks edit and this is S shot then I’ll do a quick Save As and I’ll save it as a tiff file then I’ll open the tiff files in Photoshop and we’ll take it from there and we’ll start editing.
Now, that we opened the tiff files in Photoshop, I want to go through one at a time, just sort of polished off this photographs a little bit, and sort of finished them. I love to use Nix software as a color affects Pro filters. So, I’ll start of by going to the darken and centered tab and this will take us into the new color effects Pro using interface. Once we reach inside this interface you’ll find out that, we can do a lot of things within this interface. We can apply 52 different filters, there’s 250 combinations of those filter. Now, we’re cooking.
So I’ll just close this. This is a filter list over on the left of everything I have available. So I just can close that and give me a little bit more space. There’s a couple of things that I want to do here. First is on a dark and lighten the center. So I’m going to make this a little bit more of an oval shape and the center luminosity I’m okay with but I’m going to darken the boarder luminosity a bit. Here we go. I’m night race the center just a little bit.
And then, because she’s off the center just a little bit, here’s our before and after. She’s off center just a bit so I’m going to take this little button that says place center and I’m just going to place center we’re she is. I missed that just a little bit. I’m going to make it a little bit lower on the side over. There we go!
So now, my before and after starts looking likes this and I think it makes the image look a little bit more polished. I’ll click okay with that and as we’re looking at it, there maybe one or two other things that I might want to do to it. I might want to go into, what’s call it, the tunnel contrast. If I click on the three through W tabs that here under the NIK selective tool, I’ll click on tunnel contras. Interesting that with tunnel contrast, there are three different methods of softening the skin and Nix software is toolbox if you will.
There’s a classic soft focus, there’s a dynamic skin softener, which is fabulous, and we just recently discovered in the new filter, which is called tunnel contrast that if you pull the contrast down from highlights, mid-tone s and shadows, it gives an almost softening effect to the face while still holding sharpness. Take a look at this, before and after of this face. Here’s before, there is after. Before, after.
It really changes the picture and the saturation is up, little up, hold that back just slightly to make a little bit more natural looking. Here we go! So now, but you can see the settle lines in between her eyes and her nose around the edge of her mouth, you can see it before and after, and I’ll just click on the split preview so you can go back and forth and see the difference. So it’s pretty great difference, so I’ll click okay and I think that one is done. So it takes as right back in the Photoshop and as you can see on the right, we have a new layer for the dark and light and center and we have a new layer for the total contrast. And those layers are made for automatic within the Nix software and it names in force and we’re ready to go.
In this other portrait of Tiffany, I think there is very little that I would change about it. I would like to work on this contrast on her face a little bit. As you saw when we took the portrait, this is a very simple shot to do really with a little bit of diffusion from the left. A 400-millimeter lens shot wide open and then this mirror bouncing this hair like back in this pretty simple to do. Again, I think I’ll try the softening method by going to dynamic skin softener. So I’m going to work my way down to dynamic skin softener and I’m I’ll show you couple of things about this kind of clever.
Let’s double click on the image will bring me to a hundred percent and then I can navigate over so we can see what we’re doing. Interesting that you can always click a color picker and click a skin tone and that means that whatever we do here, only that skin or only that color will be soften. And while it’s great for skin, it also works for nature photographer as well if you want to soften a leaf for something, you can certainly go click on that eyedropper tool and click on that particular color and soften just that specific leaf.
Color reach will leave alone as not too else, that is similar color of her or tone now leaves her. We’re going to bring up this softening so we’re going to look at the medium, small, medium and large details and to start looking and watching as we go here. This, as we start taking the large details up its starts to softens most of the pictures a little bit too much.
You can see here we’re she started and here’s were we are now. So we’ll go quite a bit, I’m going to pull those back just a little bit more. It’s so easy to over soften a skin and so many people will often make that mistake of just adding a little bit too much. This is a three-quarter length portrait and so by the time we zoom back out or this; I think that’s going to look pretty descent.
So here’s before and here’s after. Maybe I’ll pull back just a little bit more on the smaller details and a little bit more on the medium and here we go. Yeah, that’s a little bit better. Good, I think we got that, again we’ll click okay, go back to Photoshop, and we’re ready to finish it of.
