This week’s Blueprint uses no actions and barely any editing.  Why? Because of the advantages of off camera flash photography is less editing.  YAY! Ainslie Bernoth, who is doing a Free flash photography six part series, which is 1/2 way through, sent me this image – her before and after with steps.

Ainslie started by viewing her Raw image in a thumbnail viewer rather than Bridge. She only shoot around 80 images per session and she rarely batch edits.

Her settings for this photo were:

ISO 100

Shutter Speed of 1/160

Aperture of f/4.5

Lens used: 70-200mm

Trigger for flash: pocket wizards

She then pick the image she wanted to process in ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) and clicked open.

  • She brought up the blacks to + 9, which added contrast.
  • She adjusted the brightness up to +63.
  • Then she brought it into Photoshop to clone out the pole behind standing boy, and the base of the trees/grass to stop distractions of the background.
  • She also cloned light stand leg and cropped out light stand.
  • Lastly she ran Portraiture by Imagenomic at the default opacity.

So as you can see – minus the cloning, which just takes a minute or two, this edit was super fast.
