POST PRODUCTION VIDEOS

Down here you'll find a collection of video tutorials where I explain how I got from the RAW file(s) to the final result, showing you in the meantime all my favorite techniques and tricks I've learned over time. For all the videos, unless stated, the only softwares used are Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe Photoshop. Oh, and the free Adobe Bridge to select the pictures.
While I see that many of my colleagues have some very complex workflows, I like to keep mine as simple as possible; I prefer way more to spend time outside shooting rather than staying at home in front of the computer. In these videos you'll find many techniques explained such as: exposure blending, vertical panorama, focus stacking, dodging and burning, etc. I tried to explain them in a very simple and straightforward way, so that you won't have any problems to follow up and learn how to apply those techniques on your pictures.
Having said that, as I cover my complete workflow I won't be able to explain the very basics of the softwares such as masking, layers, etc, so you'll have to know a bit of Photoshop first in order to make the most out of these videos.
I really hope you'll be able to learn and use on your own pictures all of the techniques I've explained in these videos, and if you have any questions.. Don't hesitate to contact me!

"The Lost Canyon" - Start to Finish

In this video you can observe all the post production techniques that I used to get from the RAW files to the final result; we will start from the initial choice of the files till the final sharpening and resizing the file for publication on the web.
The technique to which we will pay particular attention in this tutorial is the so-called vertical panorama, very useful in cases where your minimum focal length is not wide enough, so that you have to take multiple frames and then combine them with Photoshop. The "vertoramas" (vertical panoramas) are quite complex to create and this is exactly why I wanted to dedicate a video tutorial to this technique. The softwares used in this video are Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe Photoshop, no additional panel / plug-in will be needed.
Specifically, we will touch the following topics during the video:
- Vertical Panorama
- Dodge & Burn (Enhancing a light source)
- Corrections in Camera Raw
- Clone stamp and other tools to remove unwanted elements
- Curves and selective increase of contrast
- Color management and separation
- Vignetting
- Add three-dimensionality through softening and sharpening
- Orton effect
- Sharpness and Resizing for Web
