I recently got the chance to view Making Outstanding Images Episode 4&5: Exploring Style! by the great photographer Ming Thing from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and boy am I happy I did. This new series of videos is comprised of 2 videos in each episode for a very lengthy but so worthy experience. Ming will take you through each step of the theory coupled with various live shoots and finish off with his processing workflow from import to a final edit.
So if you’re looking for some inspiration and a way to consolidate your photography workflow then I highly recommend you get this new series and get ready to take your images to the next level. Here’s my first attempt at reprocessing a recent image I shot. As an aside, I had been wanting to make this photograph for about two weeks. I constantly passed by this tree and the bright yellow flowers always got my attention and I would frame it in my mind until one day I told myself with camera on hand, let’s go make that photograph and so I did. I ran it through some basic adjustments in Adobe Camera Raw and then a few more adjustments in Photoshop CS5.
