Overexposed digital images
I recently photographed a childrens Xmas party, and despite using a good Metz flash and 20d at what I thought was the correct settings, found that most of the images are overexposed.
I've tried everything, but can't seem to get anything like a half decent result. Any ideas!
I have BTW three Adobe PS progs and several other IM progs!
I attach a sample pic that will give you some idea of the problem.
Overexposed is always a lot harder to deal with that underexposed unfortunately.
The image you've linked is really too small to work with properly, but I've put it through a simple shadows/highlights filter in CS2. Still needs some adjustment, but it looks like it is recoverable.
As Caitlin says the picture is a little small, but have had a go with it as follows.
Duplicate layer. Desaturate it, then invert it. Set Blend mode to Soft Light, and adjust layer opacity for effect.
Levels adjustment layer, and darkened picture a little, also toned down highlights.
Welcome to RP!
Agreed with Caitlin and Gary about the size of your posted picture .... if you follow the second link under my signature, you'll find help on the topic...
That said, I also had a go at your picture .... Working with PS CS2, I used the Shadow/Highlight Adjustment like Caitlin ... With three PS versions available, I'm sure CS or CS2 is one of them ... I'm saying this because the Shadow/Highlight Adjustment is available from PS CS onwards..
I also added a hint of colour to girl's and baby's faces and hands to 'remove' the ghastly grey colour appearing after toning down the highlights.
