Clean Processing


Recommended Posts

Hi Damien, just a quick clarification about clean processing.

Just putting back some local contrast using levels and maybe some saturation??

And just to clarify, in case this is where you're getting confused -- SOOR still means simply "straight out of raw," that is, with all your raw processing done but no PS work. 

Damien will often ask for the SOOR when helping with editing questions.  And he might ask for the clean-processed version when helping with artistic style editing questions.
