Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Help a subject stand out from the background , part of Up and Running with Photomatix Pro.
…For this next challenge, you're working with a single file.…Just one raw image.…And the goal is to bring out some of the…contrast, help the subject really stand out from the background.…Now, let's take a look at the two images.…On the left, is the original photo, and I…didn't really have a good chance to light my subject.…This little guy just happened to pop up on the tree branch.…He was sun gazing for a few minutes. And I knew if I took too…long to get the shot, i'd miss it.…Additionally, I didn't want to fire off a flash or do anything…to bounce the light because it would scare my subject away.…
By selectively developing this, i'm really able to…go in and bring out some of the details.…Notice here, how this is working well and what I want to do is essentially get some…of the details of this skin to really pop. The right side here is the processed…image and just the details and the shadow and those scales, those really pop.…This other image is perfectly fine, I just like this one…that much better because it really helps the subject stand out.…
