There is a famous quote by Ansel Adams, the renowned landscape photographer, “The negative is the equivalent of the composer’s score, and the print the performance.” Ansel was famous for having such luminous black and white prints, with full tonal ranges from deep blacks to glowing whites. A lot of the skill to make those images look so great, it was Adams ability to print in the darkroom using a variety of tools to burn (darken) and dodge (lighten) portions of his images to direct the viewers eye, and to make his image radiate light.
For the digital photographer of today the quote would be, “The raw file is the equivalent of the composer’s score, and the processed file the performance.” The tools we have for crafting these raw files from the ordinary to the extraordinary are the local adjustment tools. In Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom these local adjustment tools consist of the Adjustment Brush, the Radial Filter, and the Graduated Filter. With these tools you can take a good image and make it great! Learn how to get the most out of these tools and how to target localized adjustments using the Range Mask feature. Soon you will be creating masterpieces from your images.
