The Digital Darkroom

The technological advances which saw for most the transition from film to digital as a wonderful revelation for others it proved to be more of a fruststation. Those of you who used to shoot film or slide will know what I am talking about, to get the most out of your digital images you need to shoot in what is called RAW and although that has its benefits it also has its drawbacks.

You will find below a small tutorial based on one on my images from a recent shoot which takes you through the process following the release of the shutter to the final image. I hope to add additional tutorials as I go which will hopefully be of interest.

Please feel free to comment on anything you see here or would like to see and I will see what I can do.


Stone Washed – Westward Ho! North Devon

This image required a lot of editing for several reasons which included lens distortion correction, colour balance and a bit of cloning. This was due to several reasons including the type of image created which I will cover later and the filters used, primarily the Lee Filters Big Stopper which leaves images with a blue colour cast.
