Half of what goes into creating a great architectural image happens in post. When it comes to exterior photos, this could mean compositing multiple shots, adjusting the sky, or removing distracting elements. In this course, Richard Klein takes photos from two of his own location shoots and applies the same adjustments professional architectural photographers would use in their post-production workflow. He shows how to apply raw conversion for tonal, color, and lens adjustments, as well as noise reduction, before moving to Photoshop for compositing and sharpening. He also shares his action for sizing and sharpening images.

Hi, I'm Richard Klein. And welcome to enhancing architectural exteriors. Here we take a close look a the post process focused on creating maximum image quality beginning with the raw file to final output. In this course, we'll look at using our raw converted to do all the heavy lifting for tonal and color adjustments. Lense in perspective correction, noise reduction and adjustment layers. Next we jump into Photoshop for compositing, adding blue to the sky and retouching any other problems we find.
We see how to make the most of overcast skies and finally create an action to size the image for specific output, using two pair sharpening to get everything the file has to offer. The shots we are working with are from a profession shoot on medium format at two beautiful location. There is even a companion course about the live shoots, so between the two, you can see the entire process, from location scout to post. Now let's get started with enhancing architectural exteriors.
