So we have talked about how to adjust the Exposure of the image and we also talked about the importance of maintaining all of the elements of a photo; whether it be the Highlights, the Shadows, or the Midtones.
Now, one of the great things about Camera Raw is the fact that it allows you to see visual feedback on the image of exactly where you are losing your detail. So what I am going to do now is come over here to the left and I am actually going to select Rockefeller-3.CR2.
When I select that image, you will notice that it comes up on screen and it's really kind of difficult to see where we are losing details in this image, because it's not actually a bad shot. But if we come up here to the Histogram Palette, we will notice that these little triangles right here denote that there are some definite problems.
Now, if you have a perfectly toned image, one with no clipping of Shadows or Highlights, you will notice that both of these little triangles should be black. However, in this particular image we have our Highlight Triangle showing us that there is a yellow warning, which means we are losing a little bit of detail. Then we also have the black slider showing us that we are losing a little bit more than normal amounts of shadows here in this image.
Now, what you can do is actually click on these and you will be able to see the actual areas that you are losing detail in. So I am actually losing more Highlight detail than I anticipated. I am losing detail on the legs of this statue and also a lot around the base.
Now, I am not losing as much Shadow details as I thought, as denoted by the blue areas. You can see little specs of blue here and there, where I am actually losing details of my Shadows. This is great visual feedback and it will actually live update as you go through so that you can get a preview of exactly how you are adjusting your image and see when you get rid of those problem areas.
Now, I am going to come up here and I am going to start adjusting this image using the Exposure Controls. You will notice, when I start to bring back this image, that these triangles up here will start to improve and eventually will turn completely black. Once they do that, I know that I have perfectly corrected those areas of my image.
So I am going to start off with my Exposure and I am actually going to push it up just one click at a time, and stop probably at about .15. Now, I didn't really correct anything here, but it's going to help the overall brightness and it's going to ease up a little bit of these Shadows.
So what I am going to do now is come down to the Recovery Slider and I am going to try to recover all of these Highlight areas in here. So now I am just going to take the slider and start dragging it over to the right.
Now as I do that you should see a live updated preview of the highlighted areas coming back in. So I am going to keep dragging until I get to about probably 35. You see we have pretty much fixed everyone of those blown out highlights there and brought back in the main parts of the detail that we need on this image.
I am actually going to take the Fill Light Slider now and increase it just a little bit so that we can get rid of some of those little stray areas of blue. So I can maybe push it up to about 10, and as you can see, we have gotten rid of a significant amount of those little parts of blue there, so we have pretty much corrected that area of the image.
Now, you will notice here that my Highlights have gone completely back to black. So I know that my Highlights are okay now and I don't have to worry about them anymore.
Now, my blacks are another story. They are not exactly as black as they should be, so I need to find out a way that I can increase the level of blacks in this image to make sure that that slider goes to black.
So what I am going to do now is maybe even back off a little bit in the blacks to kind of tone that down, and you see there, by taking that down to 3, I have automatically gotten that little black triangle back in the shadows, and we have completely fixed the problem areas in this image in a very visual and very interactive way.
