Basic Image Adjustment

Step 1

The following photograph was taken by my wife a few years ago of a landmark barn near our home. Shot with an old Nikon D100 in JPEG mode, I dismissed the photo for years feeling that it was too muddy to ever produce a good fine art print. One day while sorting through and organizing photos I decided to give the JPG a little work and was blown with the photograph hiding beneath the mud.

Unlike today’s digital SLR cameras, the D100 wasn’t very good at producing a print quality image straight off the chip, which is why when shooting it I insisted on shooting RAW files so I’d have more to work with. In the early days my wife wasn’t as familiar with the camera and shooting as she is today and made the beginner mistake of shooting a potential fine art shot in JPG. With a few basic adjustments however, we can reveal the beautiful photograph hiding just below the surface.

Step 2

With the image open in Photoshop start by clicking on the adjustment layer icon at the bottom of the layers palette (*note: if you don’t see the layers palette, open it from the main menu Window>Layers), the icon is a circle that’s half black and half white. When the menu pops up, choose Levels from the menu.

The graph is called a Histogram and it describes the tonal range of the photo starting with the blacks on the left and continuing right to white. An ideal Histogram would taper to each end without going off the edge. If you see a block of the graph that terminates into the right or left wall of the histogram it means that you’ve lost information in your photo. Either you’ve blown out highlights OR you’ve underexposed your shadows and have lost detail there. The histogram for this particular file is actually very good.

If you shoot a camera that offers histogram feedback while you’re out shooting this is a great way to recognize problem images, blown highlights and lost shadow detail while you are still in the field and have the chance to re-shoot them. A feature that with some practice will save you headaches and dissapointment in the future.
