It is not easy sometimes as a Pro to make things go wrong on purpose especially when using the new Nikon D700.
A few weeks ago I ask my son Brandon to sit on the Stairs outside our apartment with this beautiful light streaming through the window.
I thought, hey this is a good exercise for bringing back the highlights in Aperture 2, so I shot some correct exposed images but also on purpose overexposed some for today’s session on how to bring back the highlights using Aperture 2.
Highlight Hot & Cold Areas came in very handy in this exercise, (you find this in theView panel ) for the applied adjustment details go to the GD Photo Tutorial Panel upper left hand side or click this LINK. There you can compare the images in large side by side.
After all my corrections I converted the image also into a nice Black and White using the Green Filter this time.
Please remember the images can look different on other screens this is only a guide for the exercise.
Before we go into all the details I like to give some praise to the Nikon D700, excellent performance in any light condition, yes I have done some test shots already at 6400 ISO and that just blew me away, but more on that later.
