    How To?

    Sorry about the delay. Sorry, I didn't mean to suggest for a microsecond that post-processing isn't involved. Of course it is. I meant, the dual-exposure (twice raw processing) isn't necessary. Just one good raw edit, then your Levels work. It's been a LONG time since you took the Raw Class, and a heck of a lot has changed in that time. As a previous member you don't need to pay full price again, only the refresher price. I urge you to consider it. This is with a single raw edit, then Levels: Yes, of course you should have used one of those. Some lighting would have helped your cause a LOT.

    How To?

    Sent! So - how do you do it if not in post processing? Fill flash? Reflector, etc? Which makes sense! I have just never tried.

    How To?

    Generally blending like this should be avoided if possible, and I think it's possible here. Could you send me the raw file? https://spaces.hightail.com/uplink/BellePhotography

    How To?

    I am trying to figure out how to blend these two photos so the background is exposed as well as the family. I have tried a couple things but think the littlest girl has a halo and not sure if I am doing it the best way anyway. Not even sure if this is the way or if I should have used a reflector to get more light on the family, etc.

    Fence Removal

    How much time have you got ?

    Fence Removal

    This was before you said No, Sorry. . . I used the spot healing tool/ content aware . . .

    Fence Removal

    No, sorry If it was a little further back you could have blurred the whole background, but that wouldn't look plausible here.

    Fence Removal

    Is it possible to remove this fence? They don't mind it, they wanted the picture here with the sun, but I'd like to try and see if it were possible or if it would be tortuous!

    Sudden calibration issue -m

    Well, don't be too hasty with your thanks Let's see how those troubleshooting instructions go.
  13. Ps- thank you for your help. I’d be lying if I didn’t admit a bit of panic.

    Sudden calibration issue -m

    Thanks. Can you scroll down to the bottom of this page to find the troubleshooting section? It's for the 5, not the 4, but should be somewhat applicable.
  15. Exactly yes. Screen is cold and magenta compared to prints (very warm and green/yellow tinted).

    Sudden calibration issue -m

    You MUST NOT say that. You'll confuse yourself. The prints aren't warm. The prints are what they are. What you mean is that the screen is too cold, yes?
  17. Where are you at with this, @Candi McGrail?
  18. And green, lacking magenta.
  19. Hi Damien! I tried to recalibrate using the techniques mentioned - followed them to the T. Brightness and contrast and such look ok! My prints (and all other media) are significantly warmer. How can I adjust this for my computer? Please note that I also borrowed a friends Spyder 4 Pro - I uninstalled, restarted using that and my results are nearly identical.

    Can I get the psd for this one too please?

    Sudden calibration issue -m

    I look forward to hearing if it makes any difference. If it doesn't, you should find another computer to calibrate, and see if you get the same result. If you do, it might suggest that the calibrator is failing.
  22. Thank you, I’ll try that! I’m so frustrated!
  23. Damien Symonds

    Sudden calibration issue -m

    You might need to start by doing this, then doing a full calibration as if you've never calibrated before.
  24. Hi Damien! i calibrate using a Spyder 4 Pro. Admittedly I was lazy on recalibration and took a few months off from it (monitor still matched prints!). Suddenly my prints are very warm and green and lacking brightness compared to my screen which seems great. I cannot seem to get the recalibration adjusted so that my images don’t look like Oompa Loompas. What am I missing here? I’m frustrated and completely stalled with editing until I figure it out. I’m editing on a Lenovo laptop. Thank you so much!!

    Anyway, do all the raw processing first, and post some in class for me.

    No, I have not. I can read about it.
