While there have been modifications made to this photo, the bulk of the effect comes from timing: the light existing at the time the photo was taken. As a general rule, light is more interesting when the sun is lower in the sky than when it is higher. In addition, here the light is shining through some partial clouds, which also adds an interesting effect, ...

I doubt that there's a filter doing that. It's more likely to be the result of a workflow that includes many steps, with some of them being filters. I also suspect that there are adjustments applied locally. Maybe there's even more editing going on, say sky replacement for example.

Adobe Lightroom is a streamlined photo processing and organizing software. Adobe Spark is a tool for visual storytelling on the web. Here's a comparison of the respective pro's and con's: Adobe Lightroom Pro: It's a good program for photo processing and organizing Con: It's not a tool for visual storytelling on the web Adobe Spark Pro: It's a good ...

Find the largest window in the house, remove any distracting elements out of the background, and shoot with the light to the side of the subject. Shoot using whatever settings you are comfortable with. If the home does not have large windows or is full of distracting items; go outside. The images will likely be better anyways and a nice overcast day will ...

You can get old 'manual' external flashes for very little (or even free from op shops and similar )and use a flash activated trigger to trigger them. Setting needs to be done manually but it's not hard [tm] to get light levels OK when you are in a staticish setting. Your camera also may allow cable trigger. Be sure that external flash voltage does not exceed ...

I recently upgraded to a used Nikon D80 with DX AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm lens and I am still learning how to use it. I have really only used it on Auto Mode. Unfortunately, I cannot purchase any more equipment right now or any time soon. I am supposed to do an indoor maternity shoot in 2 days for a family member and I am really nervous. Oh. Dear. Here's ...

Try learning as much as you can about light. Best would be a book about shooting people and nudes in natural light, you can try the Luminous Portrait by Elisabeth Messina - besides discussions about light it also has examples of settings. See if you can organize the room a little bit. The lady should be the most important thing in the pictures. See if you ...

It's entirely possible there is enough difference in the plants and the background to pull the subject off the image to drop onto another one relatively well. It might involve how the subject is lit for the shot instead of the specific colour. "Green" screen is a generic term now. The original screens for traveling mattes were more blue. The characteristic ...

With some knowledge of composition and design the photographer can lead viewer's eye through the image. Dodging and burning can be used to subtly emphasize elements of composition. For example, you can make the main elements of design a bit lighter and suppress others by darkening them. An excellent book about composition and design is The Photographer's Eye:...

Your question might be better suited on ebooks.SE. Maybe. Although they mostly deal with wrestling things into epub/mobi formats and various ebook store submission hoops. :) But they do also handle book-as-PDF questions. But to my mind, points 1, 2, and 3 are all antithetical. You either get a specialized book scanner, destroy the book (slice the pages off ...

In my opinion there is a total contradiction between this two sentences: Used presets and styles? It's more for learning purpose. 1) A preset and a style can be called "Arizona" or "Pinky dinky" You can probably asume that "Arizona" could have a brownish look and "Pinky dinky" a pink tone. But it says nothing more. It can be a total arbitrary set of ...

Mirek gave some excellent advice. A couple other things: important Make sure you've done your homework and determined the range of azimuth angles over which the sun will rise during this experiment. Make sure the camera covers this view angle. Make sure you start with the first sunrise at one edge of the view (and the expected final sunrise is at the ...

So you will need to either temporarily dedicate a camera for the project or you need to ensure that its position and angle of view are always the same. The DSLR will be probably best for this as it can be placed on a tripod. They also allow better control over exposure: you need to make sure that the sun is well separated from the sky... Many tripods come ...

How about a "beer can" camera? (You can also use one of those big energy drink cans if you can't have a beer can in your classroom.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hp-JMGQUAMA http://www.pinholephotography.org/How%20to%20do%20it.htm http://www.pinholephotography.org/Solargraph%20instructions%202.htm

Reverse engineering contains word engineer for a reason. Those tools are non-existent for a number of reasons: even small number of modifications may be applied in an astonishing amount of orders - N!. 6!=120 orders of applying only 6 adjustments even if the modification software is known. Even Paint.NET has a magnitude more adjustments than that there is ...

This image is a good example of a "high-key" photo. Most everything in the shot is white, off-white, pastel, and in bright shade. The exception to indicate there is a full range of tones is the black hair of the subject. Most every tone in the flat-lit shot is of relatively high luminance. The whites are clean neutrals without a colour cast. Again, the few ...

First of all you need to categorize what you nean by "Edit" them. This is probably not an answer but a big comment. Lets think for example in Portrait. In general depends on the overall quality of the photo. Remove imperfections on skin... This depends on the skin, ilumination, makeup. Color corrections... This is relative if you do not have a target ...

Image editing cost depends on multiple factors like specific requirements, location and the complexity of images. If the picture is so old and worn one, then it will take more time and expertise to finish the job. So, the cost will depend on required time, expertise, expected quality of output, and the condition of the source picture. Another aspect on which ...

You could try this web site. It analyses the picture, so you don't need the EXIF data.

Some photo editing software also add the name of the editor into the file. So it would look like this EXtSoftware\x00Paint.NET v3.5.11 And it would be in the middle of the file.

This "freestyle" type of cropping is easily done in Photoshop Elements. I don't have the full Photoshop, I use Adode Photoshop Elements 14, but maybe you can take my answer here and find the corresponding options in Photoshop. -Select the Crop tool from the left side bar. You should then see a dropdown menu of crop options in the tool bar on the bottom of ...

Instead of a preset, select "Unconstrained". Then select the "handle" on the desired edge with the mouse and move that edge only. It is a fairly rough method, but you can hold the Ctrl button while using the mouse to prevent it from snapping to grid, so you'll have finer control. Once you're close, you can right-click, and select "Use crop box size and ...
