... oh yes ... and Photoshop helps


Dyanna asked me in a comment in one of the posts below on how some of the pictures on the blog looks "clear and sharp" (according to her). I've mentioned a few tips, but there was one obvious tip I forgot to add ...

(read the title)

yup, Photoshop or Picasa2 helps a lot. I don't really Photoshop all my pictures displayed on the blog - but I do Photoshop most of them. Above is an example, compare it to the non-Photoshopped in the post below. The above picture would go to my Fotopages, I think.

did u make the grass look greener? wah lao, and i used to believe that the grass in coventry are too gorgeous to be true!! :D

(I'm also replying to your comments in previous post).

Yup, that's very true. I've looked at lenses, and they're not cheap like nasi lemak, i tell you... it's quite a big decision to 'jump into' that area, i think. I guess I need to master the understanding light and lighting to get more brighter pictures.

However, takkan la nak kena edit every picture. Even guna Picasa pun penat tau.

actually anne, i made had to make the grass less green by decreasing the saturation :p so the grass is greener in coventry. hey supermodels could have they pictures touched-up, why not Coventry :)

yup, to get pictures that are close to what you envision the picture to be, photoshop is a must. some may argue though. having a dslr is an expensive hobby, and i deferred buying one for 1-2 years before giving in ...

I successfully gone through 1 year without buying one :)

Hi Mynn! It's been ages since I've dropped by what with the audit and what not (ever heard of the Joint Commission International?).

Anyhow, I agree with you, Photoshop is a life-saver in some instances. Of course, being the photographers that we are, we would like to say "those were untouched, unedited" about all our photos.

How I wish that was true!

And in the case of simple point-and-shoot cameras (like mine), Photoshop does help. A lot
