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.
Original image shot in RAW, see below the order of adjustments in Aperture 2.

Travel Photography: South East Asia Exposed, images from the “The Underexposed” featuring our first selection from Vietnam…
But not this time…”Underexposed” is a term I like to use for some very talented but not so exposed Photographers who’s work is very nice.
Introducing Massimo Casal: Born in Udine, Italy in 1971, Massimo studied as an engineer. The job opportunities gave him the possibilities to travel around the world and in particular in South East Asia...read more

I met most of them during my travel and workshops through out South East Asia and from my Blogs and email exchanges.
Some of them I know personally, others only from emails, this is the first Blog in a NEW series called “The Underexposed” bringing together talented and passionate semi pro and amateur Photographer from all over South East Asia, I might add, we might venture also more East later, but for now it is S.E.A
Every month we show you in a NEW GALLERY 12 selected images from these S.E.A Countries sharing with you the magic of this part of the world, which I call home. The Images taken and selected by “The Underexposed” have been submitted to me, but not enhanced or edited in any way. No specific instructions, no favoritism on Cameras, Computers or Software, the only rules; the images had to be from their Country and
no Photoshop manipulation was allowed, except converting color to B&W.
You might ask why are we doing this? The answer is quiet simple…sharing images from this region and given these Photographers some “Exposure” they deserve, besides they are a real nice bunch plus given you the “right exposure” before venturing into S.E. Asia.
Today we start with Massimo Casal from Hanoi in Vietnam, I have known Massimo only from emails and my Blogs on Aperture 2 Tutorials & you might remember some images from him in my previous Blogs.
To check the 12 images in the Gallery please click this LINK or go to “The Underexposed” lower left hand side bar on this Blog page, but now enjoy the first images “The Underexposed” by Massimo.
PS. The images in the Gallery will be available for about two weeks before we change them to the next guy or girl. After 12 month we choose the top shots from all participants and make some real noise.
