Join Taz Tally for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting poor exposure, part of Color Correction in Adobe Camera Raw.
- For this project we're going to work on an image…that has really poor exposure.…Here I have an image of flowing lava in Guatemala,…and even just looking at the preview…you can tell very bad exposure.…Now let's go ahead and right-click.…We've got a TIFF so we're really going…to have to right-click and do the…Open in Camera Raw in order to open up…in Camera Raw directly out of Bridge.…We open up the image, and let's do our eval.…First of all, just looking at the image, super low contrast,…and way too bright, way to light, right!…This is lava. It's supposed to be dark!…So there's just about everything wrong with this picture…in terms of just how it looks visually.…
Although we could screen it back some more…and use it as a background (laughs)…but if we really want to look at the image,…the image should look like lava, we've go some work to do.…Well let's see if our histogram as always can help us…and, of course, it can.…And we see why the image is so light,…because look where the peak of the data is.…It's almost at the quarter tone.…
