Sunset Seascape Post Production See what level of post production Karl applies to a Sunset Seascape. Comments November 16, 2017 Log in to Reply Francisco Abreu Nice! First day here since I subscribed and can already see it was worth it to learn more. Really have to upgrade to Lightroom CC (is this the last one that includes photoshop?…) and learn to also use photoshop tools on some of my photography. Looking forward to check all the videos and other stuff here. Cheers, Francisco November 16, 2017 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Francisco, welcome aboard. Yes CC package you get LR and PS. We have courses on both in the ‘post production’ section. November 20, 2017 Log in to Reply Kryn Sporry Hi Karl, nice to see the workflow for post processing that seascape. I was just curious about two things. First of all, why use the black background? I thought it was a bit hard to see the edge of the image with the black background. The second question was about alignment of the two image layers. Is there a specific reason why you don’t use the alignment function in PS? I’ve used that in the past for aligning traffic trail shots.

Great tutorial but also emphasising why your composition and the colours in your image make it work too! Enjoying the subscription! Matt November 26, 2017 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Cheers Matt. March 14, 2018 Log in to Reply Nicolas Logerot Hi, At 15:55, you say you want to correct the optical distortion, but when you click on “Enable Profile Correction”, it also removes the vignetting you like. Do you know that when “Enable Profile Correction” is activated, below you have 2 cursors under “Advanced”: “Distortion” and “Vignetting”, which allows to dose or cancel the effect of one or the other of your correction profile. So you can correct the distortion independently of the vignetting. Regards Nico March 15, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Nicolas, yes I know the other settings are there. Sometimes it’s just the way these things get edited, what I may have liked at the start of an editing process can change when I get near the end because other factors have influenced the image and the perception of the image.

July 14, 2018 Log in to Reply ADAM WILLS Superb tutorials. I’m very glad that I found your website and signed up. Thank you. July 16, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Thank you Adam, please spread the word! 🙂 July 31, 2018 Log in to Reply Robert Thompson Beautiful image, and thanks for all educational videos. My only offering is that you can use a guide with the liquify tool if you apply a new guide to the image prior to opening the filter. Choose “view / new guide / ” and then select horizontal or vertical. Place the guide and then open liquify. The guide will be visible while you make the adjustments. July 31, 2018 Log in to Reply Robert Thompson Oh, and you have to have “show guide” checked in the liquify settings. September 18, 2018 Log in to Reply teresa young-gray Karl how do you decide what to make black and white and what to keep color? B?W is my favorite to shot. September 19, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Teresa, to be honest I very rarely shoot black and white. However sometimes I just recognise that a scene or composition looks interesting but the combination of color has led to distraction in those instances if I can’t make the colours work then I will take a look at a black and white version. However how you undertake your post production conversions to black and white is important, you can find more information on that in the ‘post production’ section. The positive thing is that all digital cameras have to capture in color so you’ll always have both options, you just have the luxury of trying B&W after shooting.
