Light-field camera Digital methods of image capture and display processing have enabled the new technology of "light field photography" also known as synthetic aperture photography. This process allows focusing at various depths of field to be selected after the photograph has been captured. These additional vector attributes can be captured optically through the use of microlenses at each pixel point within the 2-dimensional image sensor. Every pixel of the final image is actually a selection from each sub-array located under each microlens, as identified by a post-image capture focus algorithm.
Look for a new one each day.
The next newsletter will have them all if you miss any! People spend a lot of time taking the photos, planning them, setting them up, and getting all the gear they need to get all the shots they want. Then the photos are loaded onto the computer and minimal processing is done to them.
With this tutorial we are going to look at how you can get your macro images from this: This image was first opened in Adobe Camera Raw and some processing was done to it, just to get the exposure right. From there the macro was opened in Photoshop CC To explain what some of the instructions are for Photoshop I am including an image below that has the various areas of the interface pointed out, especially the sections that we will be using for this tutorial.
Here is the screenshot of Photoshop with all the various places to find the tools, options, layers and adjustments that were used. Step 1 — Curves At this stage we are going to do several adjustment layers using Curves to change the Fine art photography essay and bring the centre of the flower out more.
Work in adjustment layers so if you decide further down the track that you should have changed something you did earlier, then you still can go back and fix it, change it or delete the layer.
The best way to do this is to use adjustment layers. You will also need the brush tool for this, which is in the tool panel, usually found on the left of the window.
Once you know where each one of those are, you can start doing your layers for the image. Click on the adjustment curves layer, as in the photo above. Then in the window that pops up, move the curve down to the dark area just a little, like the image above just click on the straight line and hold the mouse button down while you drag to move it.
Grab your brush tool from the tool panel. Make it the size that you will need for your image. The same changes can be made in the options bar for the tool at the top.
Click on the second option from the left, the one that has the size of the brush, and you will get the same panel to change the size and hardness of the brush.
You will need to click on the layer mask within the layer, it is the white rectangle in the curve layer. Black on a mask conceals — white reveals.
If you make a mistake and hide a bit you want, you can just paint it back in with the opposite color, white. You can also press X on your keyboard too, it will swap the foreground and background colours around.
For each different curves layer I took less and less of the adjustment from the image. The following image will show you what I did to each layer.
The white areas are where the curves layer still applies, and the black shows where it was hidden. This image was done with curves layers. Some of the background leaves were brought back in the last couple of layers as they were getting too dark.
It is something you should be aware of, take notice of what is happening in the background as well. The centre of the flower is now the same as the original but everything else is darker.
The changes should be subtle. Step 2 — Gradient Map Adjustment Layer Once the curves were done a gradient adjustment layer was added. The gradient adjustment will change the highlights and shadows; you can decide what colours you want to use. When you click on the gradient adjustment layer often the black and white gradient comes up and you will notice your image turns to monochrome.
If you click on that bar in the window that comes up, you will get a lot more options for the gradient. For this tutorial I used the orange and purple gradient. You will see all your highlights turn orange and the dark areas will go purple.
In the image above you can see the blending modes that are above the layers, normal is the default.FIFTY ONE FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY is based in Antwerp, Belgium and is specialized in photography, Vintage, Classic, Fashion, African and Contemporary photography.

Aperture, a not-for-profit foundation, connects the photo community with the most inspiring work, the sharpest ideas, and with each other—in print, in person, and online. In fine art photography, therefore, the artist uses the camera as one more tool to create a work of art.
The camera is used to make an art piece that reveals the vision of the artist and makes a statement of that vision rather than documenting the subject before the lens. Essay 12 - What is Fine Art Photography?
Fine art photography is a controversial subject that has no universally agreed upon meaning or definition that I am aware of, making it a phrase and term that can be misused or even abused.
