Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting the daytime RAW file, part of Shooting a Time-Lapse Movie from a Window.
…The nighttime shots have finished exporting.…Now it's time to do the daytime shots.…And what I want to do is find a…good exposure for when the sky starts to blow out.…Let's go back to Photoshop and Bridge.…From Photoshop I'll just choose File > Browse in Bridge.…This takes me back into Bridge, and you'll…see the files we previously worked with load up.…And while the images look a lot better for the nighttime…shot, brightening up those images has made the daytime shots even worse.…It looks pretty much like a nuclear blowout here,…and I'd like to back that off a bit.…
Let's select everything, and with a right-click,…I'll choose Open With > Adobe Photoshop.…Those files load into Camera Raw.…And we're presented with the opportunity to make a change.…I'm not going to touch the crop, so let's just scan on down,…towards one of those images a little bit later is the scene.…And we need to back this off.…Let's start with an auto adjustment.…Not bad, but the white balance is definitely off.…So before I can adjust anything else, I want to get that right.…
