Another before and after demonstrating my approach to post-processing. This is why I consider myself more of a Photoshopper than a photographer. I came in through the back door. Learned Photoshop first then got tired of retouching people’s bad pictures and decided to pick up a camera.

    i’ve been looking through the images on your blog a lot and i really like your style of post-processing.
    myself, i started minor processing of images with paint shop pro years ago and since 5 years i’ve been photographing a lot but never really returned to the processing.
    recently, i started processing with photo shop, after looking through your blog, with some success.
    i mainly use the HTC filtering (with detail, edge glow, gamma and colour saturation) and photo filters to give warms, coldness of colour.
    at this point i am very interested how you process images, for instance this recent post. i would be grateful if you could share some of your skills, at least with me.

    thanks a lot and keep posting!

    Loving the Reunion shots Bob. I like the before and after, very interesting. I’m the same to be honest – I’m no photographer, just learned photoshop through my work. It’s amazing how much unseen definition is lurking in some digital photographs waiting to be extracted.

    Hi Chris – there are so many ways to skin a cat in Photoshop to get this look. Honestly I rarely have a set way of doing things in which I can batch process images. Sometimes I do all my post processing in RAW and sometimes in Photoshop and sometimes both. In general, I do everything under the sun – split tone, crunch, bleach bypass, channel mix, tone, etc. I have no real set way. I experiment a lot and have no regard for trying to accurately represent “polo red”. There are a few things I do that I’ve never read about but I have to keep some secrets.
    So totally nothing specific because I’m not really set in my ways of doing things. It’s always different.

    Is that a 904?

    I’m not sure if it was a replica or not.
