I have been reading up on RGB histograms since my other thread. I have an idea of what it is now but I still don't get it too much. Not yet. I'm sure I will with practice though right? And help from you ladies
anyway...last night DH took me out to dinner and after we went for a walk down this really cute street! I can't wait to go back! So many little corners to take pictures in. The view is just great from there. Well, it was getting dark, the sun had already set so I had to set my ISO to 1600 :-? aperture 2.8 and SS 1/125. I tried to pay attention to the histogram this time. I believe I had it set to auto white balance. But I did a few changes in ACR, mostly exposure. In PS I opened up a levels layer and adjusted the midtones just very slightly though. And a soft light layer at 20% because I love contrast and saturation and then resized and sharpened for web....I can't wait to go back to this place on a nice day during the day....i just wanted to practice though. How did I do? I've added a screen shot of the rgb histograms. thank you.
I'm guessing it's not exactly in the middle because it was already getting dark. I didn't want to lower my SS or Aperture either.
here it is in ACR before any changes were made.
TFL! Any help would be appreciated
ETA: How do you fix the color in a picture if one color is blown? Like, if I have a picture with too much red? I know a color balance layer might make it worse, as well as a selective color layer. I'm so confused on how to tone down certain colors. Been reading about histograms but the few pages I've been to doesn't really say how to fix it either in camera or in PS. :-?
