Task 6

This week we learnt about photo editing on RAW images. RAW images provide more detail on an image that can’t be achieved when shooting in a JPEG format. Featured below are the before and after pictures of Fanchu, a non binary DJ, taken after their set at Beaver Works.

Portrait of Fanchu on the steps after their DJ set at Beaver Works. 

  • Decreased the exposure
  • Increased the contrast
  • Slightly increased the highlights
  • Decreased the shadows significantly
  • Set the white balance to ‘as shot’, warmed the temperature of the image and increased the tint on the pink side to accentuate the colours
  • Increased the clarity, decreased the texture and increased the dehaze feature
  • Slightly increased the saturation and increased the vibrancy more than the saturation to make sure the image still looked natural
