Photo Retouching Video Tutorial

posted on 2nd of august, 2008

© Niderlander (Help) Success of many images depends as much on post-processing as on the in-camera work. In fact, post-processing can make or break an image, can make a great image stellar, or can make an average image stand out.

Post-processing is especially important when there are people in the image. Nobody is perfect (even though make up can do wonders), we all have pores, wrinkles and blemishes. We forget to iron or lint-roll our clothes. As photographers, we are all guilty of forgetting to set correct exposure or to adjust white balance.

Leggmason Tennis in Washington DC

posted on 10th of august, 2008

Leggmason tennis classic is in DC. Which means I'll be spending the next few days out in Rock Creek Park, at the tennis center, shooting the world's best tennis players in action! August is indeed a great month for tennis as a week after Leggmason we (hubby and I) are going to the US Open - even more great players, excitement and fun!

Best time to go is during early rounds (before players are kicked out of the competition) to catch as many players in action as possible !!! Yay! Now the million dolllar question is - do I have time to process all these images?

First batch on the way (pending as "editorial" with a follow up to support - may be they'll get "in the news" too).

Here are some great images I took last year at Leggmason:
