Image Post Processing Workflow – Mounted police HQ, Mysore

On the way back from one of my (many) photo shoots at Chamundi Hill, I chanced upon the Mounted police band (KARP – Karnataka Armed Reserve Police) performing in abandon. Though it was a disciplined routine for the performers, the music emanating was splendid. Fortunately I had on me my tripod which I setup in the dark behind the focus lights and clicked this snap.

Image Post Processing tips on Featured Images:
As promised in my previous post, I will be giving an ordered sequence of tips for post-processing of images so that you, the reader, get an understanding of the process flow. I will try and make sure that the tips will not be greek or latin but in comprehensible layman’s language; at the same time as this is by no means a comprehensive list of do’s and don’ts, do feel free to let me know your own tips through commenting.

Image Post Processing work-flow:

During Image post-processing its important that you follow a sequence of steps for image manipulation as every change you make to an image builds on the previous adjustment, sequence makes a difference!
The most followed and recommended Image manipulation sequence is as below –

  • brightness and contrast adjustment
  • color correction (color balance correction)
  • cropping and straightening
  • sharpening

Each step on its own has many smaller steps and sequences. If there are terms in these steps which seem intimidating, don’t worry, I will be running over the steps in the forthcoming issues.
